One of the drawbacks of having a really active brain is sometimes the inability to shut that brain off so you can sleep. As a result, on occasion my husband has to take a nighttime sleep aid. Last night was one of those nights. Before he had gone to sleep, we had watched the hilarious interview Stephen Colbert did with Paul Rudd to promote his new movie “They Came Together.”
The following is the conversation that happened after the Ambien had kicked in. He woke up, wandered into the bathroom, stumbled back and opened with-
Him: You know that Judge Apatow?
Me: It’s Judd Apatow. Not Judge Apatow
Him: Well that explains it. I was wondering why he was a judge
Me: You know, he’s married to that blonde chick who’s in all his movies.
Him: Sarah Silverman?
Me: No. She’s a brunette.
Him: Oh. I know! The one who goes to law school and has the dog!
Him: You know, “Legally Blonde.”
Me: No. That’s Reece Witherspoon.
Him: That’s the girl that was in the movie with the guy that was on Colbert.
Me: No. Paul Rudd was in “Clueless,” is that what you’re thinking of?
Me: That’s not Reece Witherspoon. It’s Alicia Silverstone.
Him: That’s what I said at the beginning!
Me: No, you said Sarah Silverman, not Alicia Silverstone. Neither of them are married to Judd Apatow.
Him: Well who’s married to Judd Apatow?
Me: You know, the blonde chick who’s in all his movies…
Cast of Characters:
THIS is Leslie Mann. AKA “that blonde chick Judd Apatow is married to, who is in a lot of his movies.” Because my kids aren’t allowed to watch most of Judd Apatow’s movies, she will always and forever be Ursula Stanhope from “George of the Jungle.”
