TOE-TO-TOE WITH ALL THEOTHER NEWS-FREE FUN ZONE,

SOCIAL SQUARE, THE ORANGEROOM AND THE EMPTY SPACE

BEHIND STEVE DOOCY'S EYES. WE'LLBE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY, THANKS SO MUCH.

FOLKS, I HOPE YOU KNOW THATTHERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO

BIGGER SUPPORTER OF THEPOLICE THAN YOURS TRULY.

THEY SHOULD HAVE EVERY TOOLAT THEIR DISPOSAL TO KEEP US

SAFE.

BUT NOW A BUNCH OF WEAKKNEED LAWMAKERS ARE TRYING

TO TAKE AWAY A CRITICALCRIME FIGHTING TOOL.

>> A HAWAII LAW ALLOWINGPOLICE OFFICERS TO HAVE SEX

WITH PROSTITUTES COULD BE ONITS LAST LEGS.

>> CURRENTLY ON DUTY OFFICERSARE EXEMPT FROM HAWAII'S

PROSTITUTION LAWS.

>> TODAY STATE SENATORS HELDA HEARING AND VOTED TO

REMOVE A POLICE EXEMPTION INTHE LAW.

>> Stephen: DID YOU JUSTHEAR THAT?

LAWMAKERS WANT TO TAKE AWAYHAWAII'S COPS RIGHT TO HAVE

SEX WITH PROSTITUTES.

ALSO, DID I JUST HEAR THATHAWAII'S COPS HAVE THE RIGHT

TO HAVE SEX WITH PROSTITUTES?

(APPLAUSE)YOU KNOW WHAT, FOLKS, WELL,

THEY SHOULD.

IT'S JUST LIKE NEW YORK'SSTOP AND FRISK POLICY,

EXCEPT ONCE THEY START FRISKING,THEY DON'T STOP.

FOLKS, THIS IS AN ESSENTIALTOOL.

AS THE HONOLULU POLICE SAY,THE ABILITY TO HAVE SEX WITH

PROSTITUTES IS AN IMPORTANTPART OF FIGHTING CRIME.

YES, BECAUSE SOON AS THECRIME IS COMMITTED, THE

POLICE ARE ALREADY ON THESCENE.

(LAUGHTER)I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY DON'T

LET COPS MURDER PEOPLE TOO.

BUT THIS NEW RESTRICTIONWOULD LEAVE OUR BOYS IN BLUE

WITH BLUE BOYS.

(LAUGHTER)BECAUSE IT ALLOWS POLICE

OFFICERS ONLY TO TOUCH ADULTPROSTITUTES BUT NOT SEXUALLY

PENETRATE.

THESE LAWMAKERS ARE PLAYINGWITH FIRE.

AND I'M NOT JUST TALKINGABOUT THE CHLAMYDIA TEARING

THROUGH THE HONOLULU PD.

BECAUSE AS THE POLICE WARNED,WITHOUT THIS VITAL LEGAL

PROTECTION, PROSTITUTESWOULD ENGAGE IN COP CHECKING,

WHERE THEY WOULD DEMAND TOHAVE SEX BEFORE RECEIVING

MONEY IN ORDER TO FILTER OUTCOPS.

YUP?

HOOKERS DO IT ALL THE TIME.

THEY HAVE SEX WITH YOU, THENREFUSE ANY MONEY TO MAKE

SURE YOU'RE NOT A COP.

(LAUGHTER)A CLASSIC SCAM.

THE POINT IS, THE SEX ISESSENTIAL.

AND IN ONE CASE, IT WASESSENTIAL WITH THREE

DIFFERENT OFFICERS IN ONEEVENING BEFORE THE

PROSTITUTE WAS ARRESTED.

SO OBVIOUSLY THE FIRST COPHAD TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS A

PROSTITUTE.

THE SECOND COP HAD TO MAKESURE THE FIRST COP WASN'T

CROOKED.

AND THE THIRD COP WAS A RIDEALONG.

(LAUGHTER)HERE NOW WITH AN INSIDER

PERSPECTIVE ON WHY POLICECANNOT DO THEIR WORK UNLESS

THEY HAVE SEX WITHPROSTITUTES, IS UNDERCOVER

HONOLULU POLICE OFFICER RANDYFARRAR, THANK YOU, GOOD TO

SEE YOU.

NOW MR. FARRAR, THANK YOUFOR JOINING US.

>> ALOHA, MY MAN.

>> Stephen: NOW RANDY, AREYOU WITH THE HONOLULU PD.

>> I WOULD RATHER NOT SAY.

>> Stephen: YOU DON'T WANTTO BLOW YOUR COVER.

>> YES, ALSO I'M NOT ON THEFORCE.

BUT I AM A MEMBER OF THENEIGHBORHOOD WATCH.

>> Stephen: IS THAT YOURJOB.

>> WELL, I'M NOT PAID PER SE.

FOR CASH I DRIVE A FOOD TRUCK DOWNTOWN,

SOMETIMES THE WORKING GIRLSLIKE TO HAVE A SANDWICH, IF

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

(LAUGHTER)>> Stephen: YOU MEAN LIKE A

COUPLE PIECES OF BREAD,MAYBE SOME MEAT OR LETTUCE.

>> OH, SO YOU'RE HIP TO THESCENE.

>> Stephen: I JUST WANT TOUNDERSTAND.

YOU'RE NOT A COP.

>> SAYS WHO?

>> Stephen: SAYS YOU JUSTNOW.

>> THEN WHY DO I HAVE THISBADGE

(LAUGHTER)>> Stephen: RANDY, THAT IS A

HALF A GRILLED CHEESESANDWICH.

>> TOUCHE.

>> Stephen: OKAY, RANDY,RANDY, HOLD ON, EXPLAIN TO

US-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

EXPLAIN TO US WHY THEHONOLULU PD NEEDS THIS KIND

OF FLEXIBILITY.

>> FLEXIBILITY IS WHAT IT'SALL ABOUT.

AS WE SAY DOWN AT THE 5-0YOU HAVE TO TOUCH YOUR TOES

BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE HOES.

>> Stephen: I MEAN I'M SURETHAT'S GOOD ADVICE BUT I

MEAN THE LAW.

HAS A PROSTITUTE EVER COP-CHECKED YOU.

>> -- THAT IS WHY NO MONEYCHANGES HANDS UNTIL RANDY

GETS THE HANDY.

AND BY THE WAY, CAN I JUSTSAY YOU'VE GOT A LOT OF FINE

LOOKING LADIES HERE TONIGHT.

I WOULD NOT MIND TAKING THEMTO MY LUOA.

>> Stephen: RANNY, PLEASEDON'T TALK TO THE AUDIENCE.

>> SORRY, JUST DOING MY JOB.

>> Stephen: WHAT IS YOUROTHER JOB.

>> PROSTITUTE.

>> Stephen: YOU TAKE MONEYFOR SEX.

>> THEY DON'T PAY ME FOR SEX,STEPHEN, THEY MAY ME TO

LEAVE, SOMETIMES HALFWAYTHROUGH, I'M THAT GOOD.

>> Stephen: RANLDY FARRAR,EVERYBODY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

MR. ARONOFSKY, MAESTRO, OKAYLET'S GET ITS BONA FIDES

OUT HERE.

DREAM.

YOUR LAST MOVIE, BLACK SWANWON THE NATALIE PORTMAN

AWARD FOR OSCARING.

CONGRATULATIONS ON THAT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> Stephen: NOW YOUR NEWMOVIE IS NOAH STARRING

RUSSELL CROWE, RELEASEDTOMORROW.

WHY DID YOU DO A BIBLICALMOVIE?

DID YOU GET A MESSAGE FROMGOD OR-- OR SOMEONE MORE

POWERFUL LIKE PARAMOUNTPICTURES?

WHY DO A BIBLE MOVIE.

>> IT WAS MY 7th GRADEENGLISH TEACHER, ACTUALLY.

>> Stephen: REALLY?

>> I HAD A MAGICAL TEACHER.

>> Stephen: MAGICAL,LIKE-- LIKE WITH WINGS AND A

WAND.

>> NO, SHE JUST WAS VERYINSPIRATIONAL, WEARING ALL

PINK, PINK EYE SHADOW, DROVEA PINK MUSTANG, AND SHE SAID

ONE DAY TAKE OUT A PAPER ANDPEN AND WRITE A POEM AND I

ENDED WRITING SOMETHING ONNOAH, A POEM AND ENDED UP

WINNING A CONTEST AND ITSENT ME DOWN THE PATH OF

BEING A CREATIVE STORYTELLER.

>> Stephen: HOW IS THE STORYOF NOAH ABOUT PEACE, BECAUSE

IT IS-- I MEAN YOU'RE KNOWNFOR DOING SOME DARK TALES.

BUT ALL OF MANKIND IS KILLEDEXCEPT ONE FAMILY.

>> YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

>> Stephen: AND IT'S ALITTLE DARK.

HOW IS THAT A STORY OFPEACE.

GOD KICKING ASS AND TAKINGNAMES IN THIS MOVIE.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

I'M SURPRISED YOU NO HE THATBECAUSE MOST PEOPLE TURN IT

INTO THIS NURSERY STORY,WITH THE LONG WHITE BEARD,

THE ROBE AND THE SANDALS.

>> Stephen: OLD TESTAMENTGOD HAS SOME ANGER ISSUES.

>> VERY SERIOUS.

>> Stephen: HE IS A JEALOUSGOD.

>> VERY, VERY ANGRY.

>> Stephen: HOW DOES HE KILLNEFERN THIS ONE, IS IT

STILL WATER.

>> YEAH, WE DIDN'T CHANGETHAT.

>> Stephen: WHAT IS THEMESSAGE OF THE STORY FOR

YOU?

BECAUSE IT GETS TURNED INTOTHIS, YOU KNOW-- GOD TOLD

NOAH TO BUILD HIM AN ARKYARKY.

>> I DON'T KNOW THE SONG.

I HEARD SOMEONE ELSE TALKABOUT BUT I DON'T KNOW IT

SAYS, YOU KNOW, IN GENESIS 6IT SAYS THAT HE WAS GRIEVED

TO HIS HEART, GOD.

AND TO ME THAT WAS LIKE WOW,STHAT IS A POWERFUL TO WANT

TO DESTROY CREATION BECAUSEIS THE FOURTH STORY IN THE

BIBLE, YOU KNOW, CREATION,ORIGINAL SIN, THE FIRST

MURDER CANE KILLS ABLE ANDTHEN JUMPS FORWARD TEN

GENERATIONS AND YOU ARE ATNOAH AND SUDDENLY HE WANTS

TO DESTROY ALL OF CREATION.

TO US THAT WAS A BIGEMOTIONAL DECISION, YOU KNOW

IF SUDDENLY YOU WANT TODESTROY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

THING THAT YOU CREATED, ANDSO WE TRIED TO DRAMATIZE

THAT, WE TRIED TOBRING THAT TO LIFE THROUGH

RUSSELL CROWE'S CHARACTER.

>> Stephen: NOW YOU CHANGEDSOME STUFF THOUGH.

>> NOT ALL.

>> Stephen: YOU HAVE TAKENSOME LIBERTIES.

>> WHAT IS LIBERTY, WHENYOU CAST RUSSELL CROWE IT'S

A LIBERTY, YOU KNOW.

THE SPIRIT OF THE STORY ISTOLD AND EVERYONE BELIEVES

IN GOD IN THE FILM.

BECAUSE FOR ME IT'S NOT JUSTA BIBLICAL STORY IT SAY

MYTHICAL STORY AND BECOMESSO MUCH MORE POWERFUL WHEN

YOU ACCEPT IT AS MYTH.

LIKE YOU TAKE THE STORY OF ICARUS, YOU DON'T ASK IF

THE FEATHERS AND WAX HADTHAT-- EVERYONE KNOWS THE

STORY OF HUBRIS, YOU FLY TOOHIGH AND YOU GET BURNT BUT

IF YOU START TO GET INTOWHAT IS REAL, ALL OF THE SILLY

CONVERSATIONS WHETHER IT ISHISTORICAL OR NOT.

>> Stephen: LIKE EVERY WORDOF THE BIBLE-- EVERY WORD OF

THE BIBE IS ABSOLUTELYTRUE AND HAPPENED.

>> NO, BUT YOU WILL GETNONBELIEVERS SAYING HOW DID

ALL THE ANIMALS GET ON THEBOAT.

>> Stephen: GOD SENT THEM.

>> BUT HOW DID THEY ALL FIT.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE MATHWHERE THEY TRY TO FIT

EVERYTHING ON IT.

>> Stephen: WE KNOW HOW ITHAPPENED.

LET'S SHOW THE PEOPLE HOW ITHAPPENED.

>> OKAY, HERE WE GO.

>> IT BEGINS.

>> IT BEGINS.

>> Stephen: LOOKS LIKETHEY'RE GOING TO FIT TO ME.

NOW I SAW A LOT OF ANIMALS.

I SAW A LOT OF MAMMALS ANDBIRDS, WERE THERE SNAKES.

>> YES, YES, EVERYTHING ISINCLUDED.

THAT'S A REALLY FUNNY SCENE.

>> Stephen: AT ANY POINT INTHE MOVIE DOES NOAH SAY I'M

TIRED OF THESE [BLEEP]SNAKES ON MY MOTHER [BLEEP]

ARK.

>> YOU CAN CURSE.

>> YOU KNOW, THAT WAS-- WETHOUGHT ABOUT, YOU KNOW,

BEING A LITTLE BIT INSPIREDBY THAT MOVIE BUT DECIDED TO

TURN AGAINST THE COMEDY ANDLOOK AT THE DRAMA.

>> Stephen: WHY ONLY MAKEONE MOVIE, THOUGH.

IT'S FOUR CHAPTERS IN THEBIBLE.

>> RIGHT.

>> Stephen: WHY NOT TURN ITINTO THREE MOVIES LIKE THE

HOBBIT.

>> YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

>> Stephen: WHERE THE FIRSTONE GOD SAYS BUILD AN ARK.

THE SECOND ONE IS ARKBUILDING AND THE THIRD ONE

IS THE STORM.

>> WE COULD HAVE KEPT GOINGFOR A LONG TIME, I KNOW.

>> Stephen: WHO PLAYS GOD.

>> GOD, YOU KNOW, WE DIDN'TWANT TO PERSONIFY HIM AND

MORGAN FREEMAN AND JAMESEARL JONES WERE SORT OF BUSY

AND GEORGE BURNS IS DEADSO-- YOU KNOW, WE DECIDED.

>> Stephen: IS THERE A VOICEOR ANYTHING.

>> NO, NO, WE DECIDED TOCAPTURE THE MAJESTY OF THE

CREATOR THROUGH IMAGE ANDSOUND AND MUSIC BECAUSE WE

THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE MUCHBETTER.

THERE IS ACTUALLY, THERE WASA BIG DEBATE BECAUSE PEOPLE

ARE SAYING WHY DOESN'T GODSPEAK IN THE FILM AND

ACTUALLY A HEBREW WORD IS THEWORD SAY WHICH REFERS MORE

TO DREAM THAN IT DOESACTUALLY TO SPOKEN WORD.

AND IT IS A MORE SPECIFICWORD THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

USED THAN THE SPOKEN WORD SOWE WERE INSPIRED BY THAT TO

ACTUALLY MAKE IT SOMETHINGVISUAL AND INSPIRING.

>> Stephen: IN THE MOVIE DOYOU DEAL WITH LIKE THE FISH

AND THE WHALES.

>> THERE IS A QUICK SHOT OFIT BUT RAN OUT OF MONEY.

>> Stephen: OKAY.

>> AND ALL THE DOLPHINS WEREBUSY, YOU KNOW.

>> Stephen: THAT WOULD HAVEBEEN GREAT.

>> IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT.

>> Stephen: IS THEREANY-- IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKEDABOUT IT BESIDES THERE IS A

LOT OF ACTION, BECAUSE IT ISA VENGEFUL GOD, A LOT OF

THINGS HAPPEN, SAMPSON,DELILA , IS THERE ANY SPICY

STUFF BECAUSE THERE IS SPICYSTUFF NOTICE OLD TESTAMENT,

ONAN, IS THERE ANY -->> IT IS EMMA WATSON AND

JENNIFER CONNOLLY SHOWINGUP.

>> Stephen: REALLY.

>> VERY BEAUTIFUL WOMEN.

>> Stephen: ANY BLACK SWANSITUATION GOING ON.

>> YOU KNOW THAT SCENE I'MTALKING ABOUT.

I KNOW WHY YOU MADE $300MILLION, MY FRIEND.

>> THERE YOU GO.

>> Stephen: LET'S PUT ASSES IN THE SEATS-- DID THAT HAPPEN?

>> IT WAS INTERESTINGBECAUSE RUSSELL WAS A VERY,

YOU KNOW, HE REALLY WANTEDTO HAVE AN EMOTIONAL

CONNECTION WITH HIS WIFE ANDI WAS SORT OF LIKE WHOA, BUT

IT WAS NICE TO SEE THEPATRIARCH KISSING AND SORT

OF TENDER AND IT WASBEAUTIFUL BUT I DON'T THINK

IT WILL FLOAT YOUR BOAT.

>> Stephen: WHAT ABOUT MYARK?

>> EXACTLY.

>> Stephen: DARRENARONOFSKY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR JOINING ME.

DARREN ARONOFSKY, THE MOVIEIS NOAH.
