    I heard about earworm songs, they get stuck in your head because you don't finish the whole song. So, listen to the whole song if you can't get it out of your head! I don't know if it'll work for everyone tho.

    What a lovely statement about his wife. That’s what I think the ideal for life partnerships should be: best friends.

    Stephen is figuratively saying with these segments "hey Les Moonves, maybe you picked the wrong guy?"
    I respect him enormously, but his energy is not right for the show

    "What friendship have you had that has impacted you the most" might be a good first date question but I suspect "my wife" is a _terrible_ first date answer.

    MSM missed the show as they suffer from Unintentional Mass Delusion.
    As an example is MSM tries to dictate to the public through technical
    propaganda by "Word Repetition" - Manufactured Crisis at

    finger on the Nuclear Button, He Does Not have Confidence in his
    INTEL, Biggest Liar, Sexist...................When you have two
    extreme views in the MSM, it means that the messages they are sending

    the MSM can be trusted. The MSM fails to learn that Trump is a

    The other day, i watched his audition tape for dana carvey show. Shortly after he started talking he cried holding his baby in a diaper that was too old, too smelly yet he couldn't afford to buy new one for his own child.
    Since then every time i see Stephen mention his wife it reminds me of the video. From that point for me Stephen is a kind of guy who remembers his hard time and really really appreciates what he had even back then and his wife definitely was there for him. And he is still very grateful for that, i believe.

    My grandpa died because of that reason. Grandma died 2y before him and all he ever talked is how he wants to go after her. I remember his face, he was smiling. That was the only funeral I didn't feel sad at.
