John Mulaney:When I was like thirteen -- remember that movie Home for the Holidays with Holly Hunter? Do you remember that at all? Robert Downey, Jr. is in it? I went to a diner, and I had lunch, and then I went and saw that movie alone, as a thirteen year old.
Pete Holmes:You were a New Yorker short story.
John Mulaney:I was a citizen. I just walked around.
Pete Holmes:The littlest gentleman.
John Mulaney:The littlest man. Like a little divorced man. Went to a diner and was like, "More coffee please, thank you," and then went to see an okay movie, walked home. And I probably didn't tell anyone I did it. I was probably just like, "Eh," I had my day. Not a big deal.
Pete Holmes:That was my dream, I used to walk to Lexington Center...
John Mulaney:My dreams were so weird like that. A big fantasy of mine was reading a magazine in a diner. How weird is that?
Pete Holmes:That's you in a nutshell. That's perfect.
John Mulaney:That I was like I just want to be left alone and read a magazine at diner where they have like cheeseburgers and stuff. [breaks]
