MuggleCast 51 Transcript (continued)

Voicemail - Thank You MuggleCast!

Andrew: Anyway, let's move on to the next voice mail.

[Audio]: Hey MuggleCast. This is Michelle from Connecticut. I met you at the first charity reading in New York city. I'm the one who asked what Hermione would see if she looked in to the Mirror or Erised, and I just wanted to say how nice it was to meet you guys. Going to the charity reading was my birthday present this year, and meeting you guys made it even cooler than it already was. So, I just wanted to say that I really love the show, and oh yeah! Thank you so much, Andrew, for just reminding me how many people there were there. That really helped my nerves, and made it great. [laughs] But, yeah! Love the show! Keep up the good work! Bye!

Andrew: There's a story to this voice mail, and it's the reason we're playing it. Jamie, you might remember the girl who came up to us.

Jamie: Ohhh! It was her birthday and... Andrew It was that girl.

Jamie: And she said that I've actually been picked to ask a question.

Andrew: Yeah, and she was very scared, and I said to her, "Oh well don't worry, there are only..."

Jamie: There's only 6,000 people there, yeah.

Andrew: And that scared her, and now I feel bad, so I'd just like to apologize.

Jamie: But it was a very good question, so it came across very well anyway. Even though there were 6,000 people there.

Andrew: Yeah. And we had a discussion about it on the live podcast and all that. So...

Jamie: Yeah.

Eric: It was a good question. I actually liked it a lot - I actually liked it a lot because of JKR's wording. JKR said two things. She said that they'd... She, not only would she see her - the whole trio with Voldemort defeated, but she'd also see herself tightly eloped around a certain somebody. But that was two things, that was two answers.

Jamie: She did.

Eric: So, that was actually really good. It was a good question.

Jamie: I think, I believe, Eric, she said, "tightly entwined."

Eric: Oh, entwined. Sorry, what did I say?

Laura: Mhm.

Jamie: I don't know... In...

Eric: Inter...

Laura: "Eloped." He said "eloped!" [laughs]

[Everyone laugh]

Eric: Eloped!

Jamie: Did he really say that? Did he really say that?

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Why? Why is that funny?

Laura: Yeah!

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: Because "eloped" means run off with, and secretly marry. So, I'm not too sure that was the correct choice.

[Andrew laughs]

Eric: Whatever.

Andrew: Good vocabulary.

Jamie: Oh, my god. The running jokes from that from now on are going to be huge!

Eric: No, Ben, forgive me. It was - it's 12:30...1:00 a.m. here. I...

Andrew: Ben?

Eric: I - I just can't think.

Jamie: Yeah.

Eric: I just...

Voicemail - Unity In Hogwarts

Andrew: Next voicemail comes from someone who wants to know about the unity in Hogwarts.

[Audio]: Hey, MuggleCast guys and Laura. This is Bailey and Tyler from Connecticut. Love the show. We were just wondering what you thought of this idea: assuming that Hogwarts does reopen, whether Harry goes back or not, will the four houses stay separate or will they be abolished and the school will become one? House position has always been a source of animosity between students since the founding days, so this could be the first steps to a more unified wizarding world. As Dumbledore, may he rest in peace, had always been such a strong supporter of unity, do you think this is a possibility? On a completely unrelated note, Ben, you and I should really get married. I mean, how cute does Ben and Bailey Schoen sound? Anyway, thanks and congratulations everyone on a year of MuggleCast!

Andrew: It's a shame he's not here to hear...

Jamie: It is.

Andrew: ...hear that!

Jamie: Can I...

Andrew: Yeah.

Jamie: I think creating one house instead of Gryffravenhufflerin...

[Andrew, Eric, and Laura laugh.]

Eric: Gryffravenhufflerin. That's amazing.

Jamie: Will - will not work because it's forcing people who are normally tolerant of each other to work together and I think they are better kept apart, but still kept together with Hogwarts. You know, because they're - they're primarily a part of Hogwarts, I'd say, rather than a part of their house. So, I don't think it's going to happen, but...

Eric: I agree.

Laura: Yeah, I think that no matter what you do there's always going to be animosity between certain groups of students...

Jamie: Yeah, exactly.

Laura: That's just how it's going to be.

Eric: If it wasn't houses, you know? If it wasn't officially in houses, it would just be cliques within Gryffindor or cliques within Slytherin, you know? Yeah.

Andrew: I think there still has to be the houses, but it seems like there might be a lot less competition this year or in the seventh year.

Jamie: Yeah, that's probably right.

Laura: Mmhmm.

Andrew: I mean, I don't know. Turning into one, like Jamie said, it's not going to be Gryffravenhufflein.

Jamie: Rin.

Andrew: Rin.

Jamie: Rin.

[Andrew and Jamie laugh.]

Andrew: That's beautiful, though. No one's actually - that's our new shirt slogan. WB can't get us for that one! [laughs]

Jamie: [laughs] Yeah, yeah.

Andrew: All right...

[Laura laughs.]

Eric: Slythravenhuffledor. I don't know.

Voicemail - Dumbledore Protected Snape Against DADA Job

Andrew: Next voicemail contains a very interesting theory. At least, I thought it was interesting.

[Audio]: Hi, guys. This is Amanda and I'm 21 and I go to Penn State University. In the Half-Blood Prince, at the end of the chapter "Lord Voldemort's Request," Dumbledore and Harry had just finished viewing Dumbledore's memory of when Voldemort returned to Hogwarts to request a teaching position. Harry asks if he was after the Dark - the Defense Against the Dark Arts job again and Dumbledore replies that he definitely wanted the Defense Against the Dark Arts job and that the aftermath of the meeting proved that. "You see, we have never been able to keep a DADA teacher for longer than a year since I refused the post to Lord Voldemort." I'm wondering, in addition to Dumbledore's supposedly withholding this job from Snape because he was afraid Snape would fall back on his old ways, could it also be a possibility that Dumbledore was protecting Snape from the curse that was placed on the DADA job? This makes Snape's sudden change in position even more intriguing, because Dumbledore must have known that putting Snape in the DADA job would mean he would no longer be at Hogwarts at the end of the school year. This lends further credence to the idea that Dumbledore knew that he was going to die and that there was some sort of understanding between Snape and Dumbledore. Just wondered what you guys thought. I listen to MuggleCast, PotterCast, and the Leaky Mugs obsessively, but I have been unable to make any live shows. Ever consider doing a college tour? Thanks! Bye!

Andrew: Isn't that a good idea, though? No, seriously...

Laura: Yeah! We do have, though. We do have a staffer at Penn State. So...

Andrew: Oh, yeah.

Laura: So, shout out to Penn State! Whoo!

Andrew: Wait, who? Who was it?

Jamie: What was the idea?

Laura: Rachel.

Jamie: What was the idea?

Andrew: Rachel's at Penn State?

Laura: Yeah!

Andrew: Rachel. MuggleNet?

Eric: Got to...

Laura: Yeah!

Eric: ...come do a college tour. MuggleNet Rachel.

Laura: Yeah, MuggleNet Rachel. She goes to Penn State.

Andrew: I never knew that.

Eric: Which is like, a few hours west of here. So...

Andrew: I never knew that. I thought she lives in California, though, right?

Laura: Yeah, but she goes to Penn State.

Andrew: Oh, wow.

Eric: Whoa, that's a little awkward.

Andrew: Hmmm. [laughs]

Eric: "I live in Pennsylvania and I got to California for college." USC, baby!

Andrew: [laughs] Yeah.

Eric: All right. [laughs] Laura, was it you who said Dumbledore used people in, I think, it was the last episode? You said Dumbledore really... Someone...

Laura: Ummm, no, I believe that was Jess that said that Dumbledore manipulates people, not me.

[Andrew and Laura laugh]

Eric: I didn't say manipulates, but uses them for, like, when they're ready. I think this theory... I think... It was kind of like Dumbledore...

Laura: No, I completely agree with her...

Eric: Dumbledore withholding things...

Laura: I completely agree with her theory, but...

Eric: Yeah.

Laura: I never said that he uses people...

Eric: No, no, that's okay. That wasn't you. Someone was saying it once.

[ Laura laugh.]

Eric: I heard Dumbledore waits for the time - until the time is right.

Laura: Mhm.

Eric: He withheld Snape from that position and I strongly agree with this theory - until the time suited him. Until the time was right where Snape would only need to remain at Hogwarts another year. A time such as this. One could argue Dumbledore was waiting to give Snape the position for the time when Snape would eventually need to leave and, you know, set off the final chain of events as either forcing their plan, or not forcing it at all, to defeat Voldemort. I think it's a great plan.

Laura: Mhm.

Eric: I also want to mention something, but I won't right now. I want to hear everybody else's theories on this particular one. But, she reminded me of something.

Laura: I really don't have any theory on it because I agree with her 100 percent.

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: I thought that ever since I closed Book Six.

Eric: Yeah.

Laura: That's what I thought went on.

Eric: It had to have been.

Jamie: Yeah.

Andrew: Me too. I like because it works. [laughs] I can't debate it.

Jamie: It sounds good to me, too.

Andrew: Yeah, good theory. Good theory.

Sidetracked To The Sorting Hat

Eric: So, there was, you know that - that potential theory about the Sorting Hat being a Horcrux, because people somehow think that Dumbledore didn't know that the Sorting Hat was a relic of Godric Gryffindor, and so when Dumbledore points to the sword, he says, "The only known relic is not a Horcrux and I'm sure," but people think Dumbledore was either not thinking about it or not considering or not able to find the Sorting Hat. There's speculation that when Voldemort comes into Dumbledore's office and Dumbledore, you know, says, "No" and says, "You don't want to be a teacher." Voldemort almost reaches for his wand, according to Harry. Harry sees him kind of twitch his wand. Some people speculate that's the moment where he made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux. Personally, I think it's way too easy to make something a Horcrux, but the whole point of that is people think that the Sorting Hat might be a Horcrux and that would have been the perfect means to create one in that room. But, I think - I was watching Chamber of Secrets, the movie, the other day and I think I deduced that the Sorting Hat can't be a Horcrux because the Sorting Hat was the one thing that saved Harry in Book Two, by presenting him with Gryffindor's sword.

Jamie: But...

Eric: You know? If there was.. If there was... But, if there was any kind of Voldemort in the Hat, wouldn't it have prevented the Hat itself from giving, you know, from giving the sword to Harry. I mean, if you think it's a relic of Godric Gryffindor, and the sword is the one thing besides Fawkes that really...

Laura: Mhm.

Eric: You know? And where was the sword before that? Again, with our Room of Requirement thing, do things have to appear from nowhere? But, the sword was a known relic. The sword just was somewhere else at the time and Harry got it. So, I think if the Sorting Hat were a Horcrux, it wouldn't have given Harry the sword.

Andrew: Well, it's important to bring up here that JK Rowling put on her official site that the Sorting Hat is not a Horcrux. So... [laughs]

Eric: Yeah, okay. End of story

Andrew: [laughs] I guess that's a good reason.

Laura: Not to mention Dumbledore, [laughs] he would have to know that it was a relic of Gryffindor's because the Sorting Hat put it in one of its songs.

Jamie: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah.

Laura: He said something about how Gryffindor would deem off his head and put a spell on him. So, I think that was pretty obvious.

Jamie: I love how you saved that point, Andrew, until right after Eric had finished.

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: Well, I... I tried to get it in but he just keeps talking. There's no break. [laughs]

Before I forget, if anyone has any topic discussions or topic ideas or ideas from the Forum that you guys think we can discuss, you know how long we usually talk about these things and into what depth. So, let us know if you have an idea for something you want us to talk about. Just email us at mugglecast at staff dot mugglenet dot com. We're always open to ideas because, after all, it is you guys who are listening. So, we want to talk about something you're going to be interested in. We have a hunch that you want it to be about Harry Potter but, besides that, we don't know anything else.

[Laura laughs]

Jamie's British Joke of the Day

Andrew: Now it's time for a segment that we haven't heard of for quite a while. Early July, I'd say. And that would be Jamie's British Joke of the Day.

Jamie: Oooh! Okay, I have one. However, it could slightly cause offense. So, Im going to replace...

Andrew: Uh oh.

Jamie: No, I'm going to replace what - I'm going to make it so it couldn't possibly cause offense. Okay?

Andrew: Okay.

Jamie: So, there are three women, okay? One with a certain hair color [laughs], one with another certain hair color...

[Eric and Laura laugh]

Jamie: ...and the third one with the hair color, which is...

Eric: Often connotated...

Jamie: ...often connotated with feelings of stupidity and... Yeah. So, okay?

[Laura laughs]

Jamie: So, these three women with different hair color are all on trial for murder. They're all convicted. And they're all to be executed by firing squad. And the first one - of not the hair color that we were insinuating before, Eric - is brought in front of the firing squad. And they say, "Ready, aim," and she goes, "Earthquake!" And everyone turns around and she escapes. It's brilliant!

Andrew: Uh huh. [laughs]

[Laura laughs]

Jamie: So, the second one comes out, who also doesn't have the hair color of the one we were talking about earlier, and sits down and they go, "Ready, aim," and she says, "Tsunami!" And everyone turns around and, brilliantly, she climbs up the wall and escapes. Then the third one, who does have the hair color that we were insinuating brings about connotations of stupidity, sits down, and the firing squad lines up, brings their guns up to her and go, "Ready, aim," and she shouts out, "Fire!"

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: Ummm, all right, I get it.

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: Good joke, Jamie.

Jamie: It was ruined slightly by the need to put in excesses of [inaudible] and stuff.

Andrew: Yeah, okay.

New Segment: Dylan Spartz's Inspirational Quote Of The Week

Jamie: Also, can I introduce a brand new section to MuggleCast, please?

Andrew: Yeah. Can I do one first, though? Can I do one first? I have a new one. This came to me while we were sitting here recording. It's a new segment and I'm going to call it, "Dylan Spartz's Inspirational Quote of the Week." "Dylan Spartz's Inspirational Quote of the Week."

Laura: Oh geez.

[Jamie laughs]

Andrew: I'm sitting here on Skype and, as most of you know, there's a little message people can put next to your Skype name. But, before that, as most of you know, Dylan Spartz is the brother of Emerson Spartz. And a lot of you girls out there like him for his boyish charm and his cute...

[Eric laughs]

Jamie: His uh, his uh...

Andrew: ...sense of humor. And his...

Eric: And his Chevy.

Andrew: [laughs] Fill-in-the-blank Jamie?

Jamie: And his uh, and his uh, and his uh...

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: [laughs] I know where you're going with this, so I'll just move on.

Jamie: And his. We'll just stop there.

Andrew: So, he has something in his Skype name - I don't even know what Skype calls it - but I found it very inspirational and would like to read it for everyone now. This is Dylan Spartz's Inspirational Quote of the Week. "Style doesn't matter when you're on your back." "Style doesn't matter when you're on your back." This has been the Dylan Spartz's Inspirational Quote of the Week.

Laura: Hmmm.

Andrew: Tune in next week when I tell him we did this on the show and he gives me another one.

Jamie: Yeah.

Andrew: Isn't that nice? Isn't that great? [laughs]

Laura: Now I'm looking at everyone's Skype things. Andrew is "Awayigo."

[Everyone laughs]

Jamie: Andrew's trying to be down with the lingo, aren't you, Andrew?

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: I haven't looked at that in years and I'm changing it right now. "Rocksors my socksors."

Jamie: No, change it to [singing] "Take me down to the paradise city."

Andrew: It's just, you know, Dylan Spartz - let me talk to you guys for a minute about Dylan Spartz. Dylan Spartz is a man of brilliance, he is a man of creativity, he is a man of humor...

Eric: [laughs] So, he is a man.

Jamie: He is. He is a man. And I know that everyone out...

Laura: Absolutely.

Jamie: Absolutely, Andrew. And everyone out there really would love to entwine with him - elope.

Andrew: [laughs] Yeah.

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Elope. I don't know, some fan girls would like to elope with him.

Jamie: They would.

Eric: And going back to Hermione and Ron, they might have to elope and run away from all the Harry and Hermione 'shippers.

Jamie: That's very true.

Andrew: So, we're in a fun mood today, so we have yet another fun segment for everyone. Jamie?

New Segment: Dumbledore Facts

Jamie: Oh, yes! Okay, this is going to be a regular segment. It is called, it is appropriately titled, "Dumbledore Facts." Okay? Now, I don't really know how to introduce this, but I'm sure everyone out there has heard of Chuck Norris facts. Yes?

Andrew: Yes. Yes.

Jamie: Right.

Laura: Mhm. Yes.

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: Now, these Chuck Norris facts are stated to emphasize Chuck's awesomeness, amazingness, virility, power, all these kinds of things. And people worship him just as we worship Dumbledore, so I thought, why can't we have some facts about Dumbledore, as well? So, I'm going to shoot off this week with, that Dumbledore can lead a horse through water and make him drink.

Andrew: [laughs] Ahhh ... I'm the only one who got that.

Eric: Oh wait, so it's actually...

Laura: Really!

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: But you see, someone kind of mean...

Andrew: It's going to be hard to set this up because most people don't understand these Chuck Norris jokes.

Jamie: No, just say that. Put that in and we'll see it goes. And one more since it's the first one and everyone likes it. There is no chin underneath Dumbledore's beard. There is just another fist.

[Andrew and Eric laugh]

Eric: Oh god, not these. No, no, no, no, no.

Jamie: Come on, it's funny!

Andrew: Ah, yes, these.

Chicken Soup for the MuggleCast Soul

We haven't done this segment for in a while. We have a Chicken Soup for the MuggleCast Soul. So, the first one comes from [laughs] Can'tSay? Can'tSay? Oh, she can't say her name.

[Everyone laughs]

Jamie: Oh. I thought her name was Can'tSay.

Andrew: [laughs]I know! She's strategically made it one word to fool us.

Jamie: That's awesome!

Andrew: So, this is from Can'tSay. [laughs] Wouldn't it be funny if that's actually her name? [laughs]

Laura: Oh no!

Jamie: Can'tSay Johnson from Canada. What were your parents thinking?

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: Twelve years old she writes, "Hi, MuggleCasters..." Well, okay, I got to set this up because I had it in my head. We are about to enter another school season and this is a school related Chicken Soup for the MuggleCast Soul. I'd love to start a school type segment for MuggleCast, but can't think of anything.

Andrew: This comes from Can'tSay, 12, of Canada.

"Hi, MuggleCasters, I really love the show. I would like to thank you for helping me in school. I began listening to MuggleCast in April while I had the flu, and when I saw my sister downloading an episode in French class we were discussing technology. My teacher asked the class to do reports on different ways to use the computer, etc. So, I did my report on podcasts because I'm obsessed with the show and Harry Potter. My idea was original, and I got 100 percent."


Laura: Yay!


"So, my parents were really proud of me. Thank you so much! Please continue the show! I love MuggleCast!"

Someone needs to compile a list...

Jamie: That's nice, that's nice.

Andrew: ...of... Yeah!

Eric: Of all the things we do for people?

[Jamie laughs]

Andrew: Since we're getting back into the school spirit, here, if you have something that relates to MuggleCast that involved your school, like a report or something because I know there's been a few. We've gotten emails before. Send a copy of it maybe a scan, because we'd like to see 100 at the top...

Jamie: Yeah.

Andrew: ...with a big smile, even if it's in the As or Bs. Even if you failed it. That would be pretty funny.

[Eric and Laura laughs]

Andrew: [laughs] So...

Eric: Just so long as it has one of our names in it.

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: Right. Right.

Jamie: And, Andrew, our second Chicken Soup for the MuggleCast Soul comes from Don't Know, and then after that it's Not Sure.

[Everyone laughs]

The Colbert Report

Andrew: Ah, well. Anyone got anything else to bring up? Anyone, anything? I wanted to talk about news, actually.

Jamie: But Micah does that.

Andrew: No... You... He reads it, he doesn't talk about it.

Laura: Oh, if that means we get to talk about that episode of The Colbert Report, then I'm totally cool with that. I love the show.

Andrew: Oh, that was really funny. Did you like that, Laura?

Laura: Yeah, I watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. That was pretty funny.

Andrew: It was...

Laura: It's pretty funny stuff.

Andrew: We posted it on MuggleNet the other day, and Stephen Colbert tipped his hat to Jo, [laughs] for threatening to kill off Harry Potter.

[Laura laughs]

Andrew: It was really funny. Good stuff.

Laura: Did you guys ever see that one episode, where he was interviewing Al Franken, and there was one point where they both they were in a very heated discussion, and somehow they both ended up with their index fingers touching each other. And Stephen Colbert goes, "Our wands have the same type of Phoenix feather."

[Andrew laughs]

Laura: And I thought that was hilarious. I burst out laughing, and my dad's looking at me, like, "What, are you insane?" And Al Franken just looked totally confused. Colbert was just like, [imitates Colbert] "Oh, your kids are too old." So, I thought that was a cute little tidbit, and, so pretty clearly he's a fan. So, I thought that was awesome. [laughs]

Andrew: I'm glad he got his own show, because he was so good on The Daily Show.

Laura: [laughs] He is hilarious.

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: But, we can't get too far...

Andrew: No.

Laura: ...into some of the other things that he talks about. Unfortunately.

Phoenix Photos

Andrew: Yeah. In other Potter news, we've seen a lot of filming pictures, lately. Anyone surprised by this? Does anyone really care? It's interesting, though, because...

Laura: [laughs] I haven't even looked at them.

Eric: Yeah, I...

Andrew: Oh, good.

Laura: I'm feeling like such a bad fan.

Eric: Don't we see...

Andrew: Good podcasters.

Eric: They're from like, a good few 100 yards away, and they're like half-built.

Andrew: But these are good, because unlike with other movies, we're actually seeing the actors.

Eric: Are we?

Andrew: Yeah, Harry and... Well, Dan Radcliffe and Harry Melling, were seen what was it? On July 24, I think it was. Outside of...

Laura: Oh, yeah. Running in some field...

Andrew: ...some field. Yeah...

Eric: I didn't recognize them. They were just like two people at the corner left of the screen. I was like... [makes uncertain noise]

Laura: What happened to them being in a neighborhood?

Andrew: Yeah.

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: Well, there's no neighborhoods in England, apparently. And I'm sure Jamie could attest to that.

Laura: Yeah. [laughs]

Andrew: But they're filming the scenes where Dudley is attacked by Dementors.

Laura: Hey Jamie, tell us about how television sets came before the neighborhood, in England.

Andrew: Because we're looking at the set photos and they're shooting Dan Radcliffe and Harry [has trouble pronouncing "Melling"] Melling running through some open fields. But they run through neighborhoods in the movie, so.. And I said, well as Jamie could attest to, there's no neighborhoods in England, either.

Jamie: A what, sorry? A nabhor neigh what was it called? Neighborhood?

Andrew: No, neighborhoods.

Jamie: What's that?

Andrew: Neighborhoods.

Jamie: What's that?

Andrew: Yeah.

Jamie: No, I...

Andrew: How do you call it?

Jamie: Oh my god!

Andrew: [laughs] Oh.

[Jamie laughs]

Andrew: Oh, Jamie.

Jamie: That was the worst bit of teamwork I've ever heard in my life.

Andrew: [laughs] I'm sorry. I should have picked up on that.

Jamie: It's okay.

Andrew: I did at the live podcast. Um, also, we saw some photos... They're filming what is it? "Snape's Worst Memory" scenes, too. And, once again, we saw Dan Radcliffe and whoever is playing a young Snape the young Snape. Once again, I see from the feedback that nobody really cares. [laughs]

Laura: [laughs] Pretty much.

Jamie: Alan Rickman's son.

Laura: No one cares until [laughs] the movie comes out.

How Many More MuggleCasts?

Andrew: It's true. Hey, you know, I was doing the math the other day, and by doing the math, I meant going through...

Laura: You were doing math?

Andrew: ...going through my Google calendar and adding every single MuggleCast that's scheduled...

Jamie: Nice.

Andrew: be released, up through the Half Blood Prince release date.

Jamie: That's pretty depressing.

Andrew: And, yeah, it only took me about 20 minutes [laughs]. We will be up to Episode 170 when...

Jamie: My god!

Andrew: ...Half Blood Prince is released.

Laura: Oh my god!

Andrew: On November 21, 2008.

Eric: No! No, no!

Laura: Yeah, but don't you think the seventh book...

Jamie: No. No.

Laura: ...will have come out by then?

Jamie: [with food in his mouth] No. Oh, yeah, it will, yeah.

Eric: Oh, god. I can't fathom 170.

Laura: [laughs] So, we won't be up to quite that many. Unless, I mean, maybe we shouldn't put this thing, because it will make people sad, but are we really going to keep going weekly after the seventh book comes out?

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: Let's do it! Let's do it! Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it.

Andrew: All right...

Jamie: There'll still be loose ends.

Andrew: Yeah, why not?

Jamie: There'll still be loose ends.

Laura: We'll have nothing [laughs]...

Eric: We'll all be grown with kids.

Laura: We'll have nothing to talk about!

Eric: You know...

Andrew: Yeah. Who's to say, you know? We can make the show like a half hour long, just do it that way. No, no, we'll...

Laura: We're all going to be getting ready to we'll be getting ready to go into our sophomore year of college.

Andrew: Laura, you're very negative, and I don't appreciate this type of attitude.

[Laura laughs]

Eric: Yeah, Laura...

Andrew: a podcaster.

Eric: I can totally see you, just like, "We're about to record..."

Laura: Hey, you know what? I'm done. I...

Andrew: Whoa!

Jamie: Yeah.

Laura: My contract is only through Book Seven, I'm sorry.

[Andrew laughs in shock]

Eric: Your contract?

Andrew: I'd better check mine. I don't know what Spartz put down on that.

Lucky Charms

[Everyone lapses into silence, and Jamie eating can be heard]

Andrew: Jamie, what are you eating? We all want to know.

Jamie: I'm eating cereal. In fact, Andrew, do you know what cereal I'm eating?

Laura: Oh my god. Emerson would love you.

Jamie: I'm eating Lucky Charms.

Andrew: Are you eating Lucky Charms?

Jamie: Okay, everyone, you see, this is true.

Andrew: Really?

Laura: [laughs] Ciaran would be so proud.

[Everyone laughs]

Jamie: Just before...

[Eric laughs]

Jamie: Just before I left Casa del Sims in America, Andrew's Dad, very kindly, put a thing of Lucky Charms into my suitcase, which I didn't find until I got home. And when I got back, I was very, very excited, and I've been eating them ever since. In fact, I think they really are Lucky Charms, because I've had about 400 bowls, and I don't think it's going down.

Andrew: [laughs] I was going to say, you've had that box for a while. Was it a filled box, or was it half-empty, or...?

Jamie: [chokes] Sorry...

Andrew: Half-full, if you think positive.

Jamie: It was about...

[Laura laughs]

Jamie: it was about three-quarters full. But I'm sure it's going up. It's full now.

Show Close

Andrew [Show Close with music in background]: [laughs] Oh, okay. Well, on that note, once again, I'm Andrew Sims.

Eric: I'm Eric Scull.
