Notes & Memorable Quotes Edit
- Sean talking over the theme: So I turned to Hayes... Davenport, you! Hayes: "this is a story about me? what did you say?" I think I asked you to hand me a mi tie or something, I was thirsty or something. Do you remember? Cause I actually don't know the second half of the story. Hayes: "Well I think I remember, you asked me for a mi tie, and..." Did I? Cause I made that up, I don't know what happened. Hayes continues: "Here's why you don't remember, it's very funny. Because we were on a desert island" Oh... yes, okay. He just did it because of a joke, to lighten the mood, he knew they'd get rescued and they could continue to make movies. (They didn't actually get rescued, they got themselves off the island) and the way they got off the island later became the idea for castaway
- Hayes messes up the intro to the episode, but he decides he's not gonna get mad, because it's gonna be a nice special show. Sean wants his what up what up to have a nice zing to it, because it is gonna be such a special show -- he then does a nice warm up to prepare himself.
- Sean and Hayes decided to listen to their fans, and just do a show by themselves instead of having a guest on. The listeners get really pissed off at just listening to the guests when all they want to do is hear Hayes and Sean.
- Hayes and Sean are often tantalizingly close to the microphones to where they could be answering questions themselves but they don't -- Sean compares this to when a young woman will dangle her fingers just centimeters away from that.... most sensual organ. The male penis. Hayes audibly laughs after this. So Hayes and Sean decide to finally quit being so close to the microphone and not speaking into it, and decide to finally explore themselves and not just ask questions to someone else.
- Hayes and Sean still don't know about each others personal lives as well as they'd like to so they're both looking forward for this show to just explore and get to know each other better.
- Hayes talks about how he changed how he goes about his entire day, and changed his feng shui. Hayes now has his bed in the center in his bedroom, and he can do a back headspring, and do a spider crawl to the ceiling right out the door. He also changed the windows to floor level so he can see people walk by. It helped changed change the flow and energy of his life. Other than that the one thing that's made a difference, is the toilet bowl and tank of his toilet have been separated, and the tank is now outside -- they're not connected at all, you have to get water yourself and manually change it out now.
- Sean isn't really doing the whole bathroom thing nowadays, he's doing zero net calories, he uses everything that he consumes and has no need to let anything out. Sean talks about how he's a producer, he produces and puts out content, and in return he gets paid money. So that's why he doesn't want to make any do dees, because he is producing something, but he doesn't get anything out of it. So he likes to keep it all to himself
- Sean and Hayes decide to define their exact job. Sean starts and says his exact job title is that he's a spaceship driver. Sean explains this by saying when he makes movies he's taking people to a whole other world that they couldn't get to without him. So in that way -- he's a spaceship driver. Although, it's a little limiting, he also has to build the spaceship, figure out what kinda fuel he needs, figure out what kinda tunes he wants in it and he has to figure out how far away how long of a trip it is, and finally to make sure everyone's laughing their butts off the whole way
- Sean acts a few different scenes out to give examples on how he's a space ship driver, and he actually decides to give out two very different scenario's to show everyone just how different things can be. Hayes remarks at how good Sean is at this, and mentions how it's like there's a fork in the road in his brain -- it's like Sean has two different brains.
- Hayes like to think of his job title as a sled dog racer -- and not really because of an analogy, but because it's fun to think about doing something like that. Sean offers to give his real work analogy, but Hayes wants to keep this separate from work, it's just fun to think about the dogs being his coworkers -- Hayes doesn't agree with having dogs as pets because it's jail for them. Hayes then relates the pound to a hotel for dogs, and for him it's like a place for him to in at night and open all the cages up.
- Sean says the reason why he doesn't introduce his family to his Hollywood friends, is that he's embarrassed that he's leading two different lifestyles. From going from a farm orphan, to now having a beautiful basement apartment in his dad's house -- he feels he wasn't always cool or funny or smart. Or even, able to see out of both his eyes. So it feels like he keeps these things separate because if someone knew everything about him like those things, maybe they wouldn't like who he was. Sean mentions how everyone knows one secret, but not all of them. Hayes has one, Steffie has one, and each of his kids have one some of them are even just babies, where the secret is just written on them, and of course his dad has a secret, and even certain barista's and his AT&T guy has one. Hayes mentions how it'd be one fun scavenger hunt to go around town to find out all the secrets about him
- Sean then talks about how he's met all of Hayes' girlfriends and he goes through them very quickly and it makes him wonder -- does it make Hayes yearn for that great romance. Is that something he seeks and desires? or is he happy with the lifestyle he has. Hayes answers by saying he'll meet someone he really likes go on a few dates and get to know each other but eventually it gets to a point he feels comfortable with this person, and they'll go to each others place at some point and they'll spend the night, and they'll start getting intimate -- kissing, touching, disrobing in a fun way. But then it gets to the point where it gets to the point that it's time to have intercourse. His thing will go in there and Hayes DOES NOT like it. Sean asks if he's afraid it won't come back out? Hayes says no, it's just something about it -- it's so fucked up! as soon as it goes in, he just thinks I hate this! and he runs away to the corner of the room. The girl will usually come over and say what's wrong to which Hayes will answer he just remembered something that happened to him as a kid or something, but that makes them just want to do it more. To answer Sean's question -- yes.
- Sean asks if there is anything he likes the way it feels, and Hayes answers that once in the middle of the night, he tripped and speared a grape, it feels like a wet hat. The only way Hayes can have sex is by accident. He can't do it if he tries to do it, Sean recommends having a girl hide things like roller skates and things to trip on around the house in order to fall into these girls and have sex.
- Sean talks about how he assumed something like this was going on with Hayes, because of how he would advertise it, and joke around. He talks about how once Hayes held up a wine bottle and said, "I wish my ding dong speared this cats grandfather" and how once time they were all watching California Raisins special Hayes was all like, "mmm yeah I'd like to fuck their dad, well not fuck but what I'm talking about is much more complicated then that"
- Hayes asks if they could take a break he's getting all sad all of the sudden
Guest Segment (No Guest) Edit
- Hayes talking over the theme: So I think I turned to Sean.... You, Clements. Sean: "wait a minute, me? what?" And so I said, did you rewind this? but I don't remember what I was holding" Sean cuts in to say, he remembers this it was one of those party things where you whip your arm and a ribbon unravels. Hayes doesn't understand how this thing unravels or retracts and Sean mentioned how he would rewind (retract) this and Hayes was mystified

Sean likes the very long phone calls from Improv4Humans, Hayes likes the videos from the Fogeynest files (Fogelnest Files) Sean likes Elzabeth, Andy, and the Opera game from Totally Laime -- actually that one would be the bowl of all the podcasts. They'd also add elements of the cracked one, and add Andrew Ti, Andrew Ti would be ALL over it, they'd want his ad reads actually. And He'd be married to the girl from movie show.
