Thank you, thank you, thank you to Tim Graham and Newsbusters for having caught this when it re-aired two days ago. It would have disappeared from my Tivo at midnight if they hadn’t mentioned it today.
We’d heard the rumors, but not until now did we know for sure. I’ll make you click through to Tim’s post for the transcript, but suffice it to say, Rosie did indeed earn her pay that day with the quick segue after Brolin took his surprise detour into Nutsville.
Exit question: what are we to assume from the fact that neither Barbra nor Barbara demanded that this segment be edited out of the show when it re-ran?
