Robin Williams:

Ladies and gentlemen,

it's time to pump neurons.

We are about

to enter the domain

of the human mind.

James Lipton:

How do you explain

the mental reflexes

-that you deploy

with such awesome speed?

-(whistles)

Are you thinking faster

than the rest of us?

-What the hell is going on?

-(audience laughs)

(cheers, applause)

Jesus.

(laughing)

"What is it

about your mind?

"What is it that does

this thing to you?

Try to explain yourself!"

(squeaks)

Comes from a deep

part inside myself

that was actually looking

for my mother,

but yet I saw that moment

when she looked up there,

and I went, "Okay,

I'll be funny for her.

Okay, that's fine,

work that way."

Come back from that,

realize after a while

that I want to be accepted.

"You like me.

You really like me."

No, it's not that.

I can be trained.

I can show you

how intelligent I am.

I can use a word

like "delicatessen"

and know

what it means.

(laughter)

Or "invertebrate."

Or "inveterate."

(chuckles)

Or "degenerate."

(skeevy laugh)

-But all of that...

-(audience laughter)

...is all part of it,

because it's all

part of the mind

that actually

flows like that,

because I realize

that the human mind is

a three-and-a-half

pound gland

that pumps neurons constantly

and deals with itself

by responding to stimulus.

That's what we're

designed to do,

evolving slowly.

Even Darwin's going,

"I have hopes!

I had such high hopes!"

It's all part of it,

because I believe

the human mind is

adapting and evolving

slowly but surely

but I'm trying

not to speak that fast,

because eventually,

you have to catch up.

Lipton:

Wow.

Larry Grobel:

Do you have any fears?

Robin:

I guess it'd be that fear

that if I felt like

I was just becoming...

not just dull, but a rock.

That I still

couldn't spark.

Then I'd start

to worry.

Where are my glasses?

-They're on your face.

-Oh. Thank you.

Robin:

What you do is kind

of keep yourself fresh.

You don't burn out.

That's a never-ending struggle.

-We didn't have water when

I was growing up, Dave.

-Letterman:
Is that right?

My mother and father would have

to take hydrogen and oxygen

and shove it together.

-Made your own water. Wow.

-Made our own water!

Isn't it interesting

in the '80s, you meet

someone you like,

you say, "Gosh, Helen, I--

I really care about you.

Can I have

some blood and urine?"

And you think eventually--

you think sex will

eventually be...

(blows)

"Uh, Helen,

I'm in the airlock now."

"Fine, Harry,

leave the sperm in the tray.

I'll get it tomorrow."

Inappropriate anecdotes

on a celebrity talk show.

So I said, "Get off me,

Grandma. I'm done."

Famous Hollywood roles

as played by Carol Channing.

(mimics Channing)

"Well, surely you must be

the Son of God."

(audience cheering)

Robin:

This is Elmer Fudd

sings Bruce Springsteen.

(mimics Elmer)

I'm dwiving in my caw

I tuwn on the wadio

I pull you

a wittle cwoser

You say no

You say

you don't wike it...

Robin:

Risking, for me,

it's always been

kind of part of the thing

of just trying different

things.

It's the process of the work

peeling away again,

you think you're great,

and then something

comes along

and goes,

"You're not that hot."

But it's always that thing that

keeps you moving forward.

Cameraman:

I'm sorry, you have two hairs--

There's... hairs are

sticking up.

-Oh shit, man.

-(laughter)

How fucked up is that?

Hair is sticking up?

(gasps)

Shit. We have

to do it all over now.

This is bullshit.

Two hairs?

Fuck you, man.

We were into a groove.
