(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

MY GUESTS TONIGHT ARE THE

HOSTS OF THE DISCOVERY

CHANNEL'S MYTHBUSTERS.

TOGETHER WE WILL BLOW UP ONE

LUCKY MEMBER OF THE AUDIENCE.

PLEASE WELCOME ADAM SAVAGE

AND JAY ME HYNEMAN.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

HEY, GUYS.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

>> HELLO.

>> Stephen: YOU GUYS STARTED

YOUR NEW SEASON ON WHAT,

LAST WEDNESDAY.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU

BLEW UP.

HAVE YOU BLOWN ANYTHING UP

YET?

>> NO, WE ACTUALLY DID

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE MASKS.

WE HAD MASKS MADE OF EACH

OTHER AND THEN JAMIE WAS ME

AND I WAS JAMIE AND I GOT TO

DISCO DANCE AS JAMIE, THAT

WAS PRETTY COOL.

>> Stephen: THAT WAS A TEST

TO SEE IF YOU COULD MAKE

THAT MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

SWITCHEROO.

I THINK WE HAVE A CLIP.

LET'S SHOW WHAT YOU DID.

>> WHILE FACING OFF AGAINST

A MYTH ABOUT IDENTITY THEFT, --

>> WOW.

>> ADAM AND JAMIE HAVE

INCREDIBLY ACCURATE HANDMADE

MASKS MADE.

>> OH MY GOD.

>> THIS IS --

>> I WAS THINKING OF GOING

SOMEPLACE AND KICKING A

PUPPY AND THEN THEY WOULD

BLAME IT ON YOU.

>> GOOD GIRL.

GOOD GIRL.

>> SHE IS VERY CONFUSED.

>> NEW THAT'S YOUR DOG.

>> YES.

>> AND YOUR DOG THOUGHT YOU

WERE HIM.

>> EXACTLY.

>> Stephen: SO THEY DON'T

SMELL US, THEY ACTUALLY LOOK

AT US.

>> IT WOULD APPEAR SO.

>> Stephen: SO YOU BUSTED

TWO MYTHS THEN.

>> RIGHT THERE, YEAH.

>> Stephen: WOW.

DO YOU MAKE MORE PURPOSEFUL

DISCOVERIES OR MORE

ACCIDENTAL DISCOVERIES WITH

YOUR SHOW?

>> I WOULD SAY IT'S ABOUT

50/50, HONESTLY.

>> YEAH.

>> THE DOG TEST CAME UP AS

JAMIE JUST SUGGESTED IT

BECAUSE HE HAD HIS DOG FOR

THE DAY AND THOUGHT WE

SHOULD JUST TRY THAT OUT.

AND WE THOUGHT IT WAS GOING

TO BE A BUST AND THE DOG

TURNED OUT TO TOTALLY GO

RIGHT FOR ME AS JAMIE.

>> YEAH, BECAUSE MY WIFE HAS

THIS THING WHEN SHE GETS

HOME, SHE WILL SAY TO ZERO,

OUR DOG, WHERE'S JAMIE.

AND IT'S A GAME THEY PLAY.

AND SHE WILL GO THROUGH

EVERY ROOM UNTIL SHE FINDS

ME.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD TRY THAT

HERE AND WE WERE BOTH JUST

ASTONISHED THAT IT DIDN'T

WORK.

>> Stephen: YOU HAVE THOUGHT

THAT PERHAPS YOUR DOG WAS

THE VARIABLE.

MAYBE YOU HAVE A

PARTICULARLY UNTALENTED DOG.

>> THAT COULD BE.

>> Stephen: OKAY, HAVE YOU

EVER-- HAVE THERE BEEN ANY

MYTHS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO

TEST BUT CAN'T?

>> WELL, WE STILL, WE DID

THE WHOLE EPISODE ON BUSTING

THE CONSPIRACY THEORY THAT

THE MOON LANDING WAS FAKE.

AND THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE

WHO ARE STILL UNCONVINCED.

SO WE WOULD LOVE TO IF TIME,

MONEY WERE NO OBJECT BUILD A

SPACESHIP, GO TO THE MOON

AND COME BACK WITH A PIECE

OF APOLLO HARDWARE ALL IN

ONE TAKE.

>> Stephen: THAT WOULD BE

COOL.

CAN'T YOU GET A TELESCOPE

STRONG ENOUGH TO SEE THE

APOLLO STUFF ON THE MOON.

>> WE RESEARCHED IT, AND NO,

NOT EVEN THE HUBBELL CAN

RESOLVE THE IMAGES OF THE

MOON TO A TIGHT ENOUGH

RESOLUTION TO SEE ACTUAL

FOOTPRINTS OR APOLLO

HARDWARE.

>> Stephen: WOULD YOU BE

OPEN TO THE IDEA THAT IT

DIDN'T HAPPEN, OR ARE YOU-- DO

YOU WANT TO PROVE IT?

SEE?

SEE, SEE.

>> IN THIS I HAVE TO ADMIT

TO SOME BIAS THAT WE'VE

ALREADY BEEN THERE.

I BELIEVE ABSOLUTELY

UNEQUIVOCALLY THAT OF COURSE

WE WENT THERE.

>> Stephen: THEN ARE YOU

UNQUALIFIED TO HAVE TO

CHECK.

HOW I DO KNOW ARE YOU NOT

GOING TO BRING A PIECE OF

EQUIPMENT UP THERE.

I CAN'T TRUST YOU NOW.

ARE YOU LIKE EVOLUTIONARY

SCIENTIST, THEY WILL DO

ANYTHING TO PROVE THAT IT'S

REAL.

THEY ARE-- HOW I DO KNOW

THEY'RE NOT BURYING DINOSAUR

BONES IN THE EARTH.

CAN YOU BUST EVOLUTION?

>> YES, WE COULD BUT IT

WOULD BE THE MOST BORING

SHOW EVER IT WOULD TAKE

YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS

AND WOULD BE VERY SLOW THERE

WOULD BE A LOT OF FRUIT

FLIES.

>> Stephen: JUST TAKE A

GLASS OF WATER, PUT A LITTLE

LID ON TOP, COME BACK IN

HALF AN HOUR F IT'S NOT A

TINY DOLPHIN, THEN IT DID

NOT ADAPT.

>> I DON'T REALLY THINK

THAT'S A COMPLETE ENOUGH

TEST REALLY.

>> Stephen: GOOD ENOUGH FOR

ME.

>> I HAVE GOT A COUPLE I

WOULDN'T MIND YOU TESTING.

BABY WITH THE BATHWATER.

WHAT'S THE ACTUAL MYTH.

>> Stephen: DON'T THROW THE

BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER.

>> WHY?

>> Stephen: I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

AND SO I-- YOU FIND OUT

WHETHER THAT IS GOOD OR BAD.

YOU TAKE A BATH AND YOU PUT

A BABY IN IT AND YOU THROW

OUT THE WATER AND THE BABY

GOES WITH IT, AND YOU SEE

WHETHER THAT IS GOOD OR BAD.

>> BUT THERE HAS TO BE A

PRESUPPOSITION FROM THE

BEGINNING THAT IT IS GOOD OR

BAD.

>> Stephen: WE SAY IT IS BAD,

DON'T THROW THE BABY OUT

WITH THE BATHWATER.

THEY ARE SAYING YOU

SHOULDN'T DO IT.

>> I'M NOT AGAINST DOING IT

YOU ABOUT I DON'T NEED TO DO

IT TO KNOW THAT IT'S BAD.

>> Stephen: I THOUGHT YOU

WERE CURIOUS.

>> Stephen: HOW ABOUT EARLY

TO BED, EARLY TO RISE MAKES

A MAN HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND

WISE, BEN FRANKLIN.

GET TORY AND GRANT, GIVE

THEM EACH $100 BUCKS, OKAY,

TEST THEIR WASAL METABOLIC

RATE, HEALTH TEST THERE AT

THE BEGINNING, AND GIVE THEM

AN INTELLIGENCE TEST.

AND THEN OVER THE COURSE OF

TWO WEEKS ONE GOES TO BED

EARLY AND WAKES UP EARLY,

ONE STAYS UP LATE AND GETS

UP LATE AND TEST THEM AGAIN

TWO WEEKS LATER AND SEE

WHO'S GOT MORE CASH.

>> THAT IS EXACTLY HOW WE

WOULD DO THAT TEST.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

>> PRETTY MUCH EXACTLY, YES.

AM THANK YOU.

>> Stephen: WHAT CAN WE LOOK

FORWARD TO.

CAN YOU TEASE US WITH A BIG

ONE COMING UP.

>> YES, WE'VE GOT REVERSE

ENGINEERING COMING UP.

IT IS REVERSE ENGINEERING.

>> YES, REVERSE ENGINEERING.

>> Stephen: WHAT DOW MEAN.

>> THERE IS A MYTH THAT BACK

IN THE '80s A SPORTS CAR WAS

MADE THAT WAS SO POORLY

DESIGNED THAT IT WAS MORE

HEIR DYNAMIC GOING BACKWARDS

THAN FORWARD.

>> Stephen: WHAT IS IT.

>> I CAN'T SAY THE NAME OF

IT.

>> Stephen: LEGALLY.

>> LEGALLY I CAN'T SAY THE

NAME OF IT.

SO WE CUT IT OFF ITS

CHASSIS, FLIPPED IT 180 AND

PUT IT BACK DOWN AND RACED

IT AGAINST THE COUNTERPART.

IT'S FANTASTIC.

>> Stephen: I WON'T ASK BUT

I WILL WATCH.

>> IT'S PRETTY STUNNING.

AND CARRY GRANT AND TORY

TESTED THE MYTH OF BLUE ICE

CHARACTER A BATHROOM

AIRPLANE BATHROOM FAIL AND

SEND AN ICE CHUNK OF URINE

DOWN TO EARTH KILLING

PEOPLE.

>> Stephen: WHERE DID THAT

MYTH COME FROM.

>> IT CAME FROM ICE CHUNKS

FALLINGING ARE FROM THE SKY

KILLING PEOPLE THAT TURNED

OUT TO BE URINE.

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO

MUCH, JAMIE THANKS SO MUCH.
