ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening everybody. i'm seth meyers. how are we doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: that is fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. when asked in an interview yesterday, if he is always truthful, president trump responded, quote, "i do try, and i always want to tell the truth when i can. i tell the truth." [ laughter ] wow! i mean it's hard to believe that in a couple of hundred years america went from "i cannot tell a lie" to, "let's see how i feel." [ laughter ] in a new axios interview, president trump claimed that if he received more favorable news coverage he would be, quote, the nicest president you've ever seen. [ laughter ] maybe, if this is the only other president you've ever seen. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
house minority leader nancy pelosi received a standing ovation this week while attending a performance of bruce springsteen's broadway show. and ted cruz got an ovation at "phantom of the opera" because they thought he was in it. [ laughter ] "i'm not the phantom." the new york city marathon is this weekend, and thanks to the subway system, it's now the most efficient way to get around the city. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] starbucks today unveiled this year's holiday cups that have more traditional christmas designs. for example, here is one that depicts two shoppers on black friday fighting over a flat screen. [ light laughter ] here is one of a woman crying because her flight got cancelled after three delays. [ laughter ] and this is my favorite. one of a guy drinking in his car after a fight with his wife's family. [ laughter ] the department of the interior reportedly told its staff yesterday that they were not
allowed to show up to work dressed as president trump for halloween. which is crazy. anyone dressed as president trump would never show up to work. [ laughter ] [ applause ] according to estimates, 18% of americans dress up thier pets for halloween. the other 82% learned their lesson. [ laughter ] a mandarin duck that is native to japan and china has been spotted in central park here in manhattan. unfortunately, like most things spotted in central park, it was masturbating.dien groans ] [ laughter ] a man on long island who discovered human bones in his basements it is the skelton of . added the man, "and now i'm getting a premonition that i'm a
a man in new mexico this week said his dog accidentally got his paw stuck in the trigger of a gun, and shot him while the two were sitting in his parked pickup truck. [ laughter ] despite the accident, the man says the dog is still a good boy. [ gun loading ] great boy. [ laughter ] today was world vegan day. celebrate with no meat, no dairy, and no friends. [ laughter ] [ applause ] the motion picture association of america has released a new study showing that 57% of movied r. while the other 43% have been "spider-man." wheel of fortune host pat sajak and vanna white have renewed their contracts with the show through 2022, and you know what that means. [ laughter ]
[ applause ] they don't even use the g. [ laughter ] and finally, this is very exciting. thanks to newly developed technology, we here at "late night" have the ability for the first time to record the tiny voice that is inside donald trump's head. and you might be surprised to know that like everyone's inner voice, donald trump's is filled with paralyzing fear, and self-doubt. so, here once again is the tiny voice in the back of donald trump's head. ♪ >> hey donald, it's the tiny voice in the back of your head. and it's time to face your nemesis, the wind. oh, you don't want to. i get it. [ light laughter ] just work up your nerve though, you can't live on the airplane. you got to walk down the stairs and face the wind. i'm sure your hair will be fine. oh, it's not fine. it flipped up in a weird way.
okay, you know what though? you can do this. there goes the tie. all right, hold the railing. hold the railing we know you hate wind. we know you hate stairs, but you're going to be okay. you know what, tap the railing. say i'm okay. i'm going to be okay. you're my friend. tap tap. [ light laughter ] okay, there we go. we're going to make it to the bottom we're going to make it to the bottom. you look sick to your stomach. and you made it, now go back to being a cocky [ bleep ] head. [ laughter ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we have a great show for you guys tonight. he is the writer and director of "fahrenheit 11/9." michael moore is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] his new film, "wildlife" is in theaters now. paul dano joins us this evening. [ cheers and applause ] and very exciting. as a reminder next tuesday is election day. go out and vote, and then watch us here for a live special edition of "late night." we will a live "closer look." amber ruffin will do a live "amber says what." our guests will be two of our favorites. billy eichner and msnbc's chris hayes.
again we will be live so you will hear the very latest results, and possibly accidental cursing. so mark your calendars everybody. we're very excited about that. [ applause ] before we get to all of tonight's guests, republicans have done so little, and what they have done is so unpopular that their only strategy for the mid-terms is to make up a racist scam to scare people. for more on this, it's time for a "closer look." [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: the one constant in donald trump's life from his earliest days in manhattan real estate to now is that he is a scam artist. he literally sold scam products from a vitamin kit that was determined by a urine test to a trump deodorant. and i have to say the last person i would buy deodorant from is donald trump. [ light laughter ] i mean, look at how sweaty he gets. can you imagine the ad for that deodorant? trump deodorant, always let them see you sweat. [ light laughter ] in fact just this week, a new lawsuit was filed in manhattan federal court, accusing the
trump family of defrauding investors by selling them get rich quick schemes. >> president trump, three of his adult children, and their company are now facing a new lawsuit over allegedly conning consumers in a quote, "systematic fraud and pattern of racketeering." >> the federal lawsuit was filed today in manhattan, and it accuses trump, his company, and three of his children of promoting get rich quick schemes that have harmed investors, and that includes a telecommunications marketing firm, the trump network, which marketed vitamins, and the trump institute which offered real estate seminars. >> seth: i can't believe trump had an institute. [ light laughter ] i just assumed he escaped from an institute. [ light laughter ] trump's been selling scams his whole life. if he weren't president, he'd be selling counterfeit video games out of the back of "it's an x-b and like the grifter he is, trump just makes stuff up off the top of his head to lure in gullible people. in a fox interview this week for example, he claimed he saved us from a war with north korea that would have definitely happened
if president obama were still in office. >> you have news out there that is so fake, and i can do the greatest thing ever, north korea as an example. we would have been going to war. normal would have been going to war with north korea. i think president obama would have gone to war. if he had an extra year, he would be in right now a war with north korea. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, i'm sorry, i was just dreaming about an extra year of obama. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i asked a team of computer ger ntists to estimate how much d look right now if obama had been president for an extra year, and this is what they came up with. [ laughter ] and now, as president trump is just selling his supporters more scam products, he's replaced the vitamin kit and the deodorant things he'll never actually deliver. just take the wall. it doesn't exist. it's never going to exist. so now trump is sending troops to tor
claiming that's just as good as a wall. >> you're talking about 10,000, maybe 15,000 active duty u.s. military to the border. >> yeah. >> more than we have fighting the taliban in afghanistan. more than we have fighting isis in syria. >> yeah. >> you're really going to do that. >> it's very important. it's very important. we have to have a wall of people. [ light laughter ] >> seth: that's right, the wall isn't made of bricks anymore. it's made of people. [ light laughter ] "our amazing troops are going to the border where we will stack them on top of each other, tetris style." [ laughter ] republicans -- [ applause ] republicans make stuff up because they can't defend their actual record. for example, the gop passed a healthcare bill in the house last year that would have stripped away protections for i. so now that they're running for re-election, they're just lying about it. >> we can protect preexisting conditions. and you need to understand everyone agrees we're going to protect preexisting conditions. >> i am passionate about protecting people with preexisting conditions. >> we will always protect
americans with preexisting conditions. >> republicans will protect people with preexisting conditions far better than the dems. >> the president's health care plan that he's laid out covers preexisting conditions. >> seth: okay first, his plan doesn't cover preexisting conditions. second, he doesn't have a plan. [ light laughter ] the house passed a bill last year. that plan failed in the senate, and then we never heard about it again. sarah sanders managed to cram two lies into one sentence. she's like the rick steves of lying. i'll show you how to pack two [ laughter ] republicans don't want people thinking about their healthcare another. like trump's latest stunt over birthright citizenship. a righsh amendment. automatic citizenship for anyone born in this country is the pillar of our post civil war attempt to build an inclusive democracy. and yet trump claimed this week, that he could just unilaterally change it through an executive order. something he obviously cannot do.
>> it was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. >> right. 14th amendment. >> guess what. you don't. >> you don't. >> number one. number one, you don't need that. number two. >> i mean that's in dispute. that's very much in dispute. >> you could definitely do -- well you can definitely do it with an act of congress. but now they're saying i can do it just with an executive order. >> have you talked about that with the council. >> yeah, i have. >> so, where in the process are you? >> it's in the process, it'll happen. with an executive order that's what you're talking about. right? >> yes. that's exactly what i'm talking about. >> i didn't think anybody knew that, but me. thoughi was the onne >> seth: yeah, you thought you were the only one because it's crazy. [ laughter ]hoets put in an insane asylum, and when his roommate says, "you know th on me," trump goes, "you too? i thought i was the only one." [ laughter ] [ applause ] and now now republicans who spent years paying lip service to the constitution have been twisting themselves in knots to align themselves with president trump. like texas senator, ted cruz who's fully embraced trump in his tight re-election bid. when cruz, a constitutional
lawyer was asked about trump's comments, he said, "i have long supported ending birthright citizenship. i would need to examine the legal arguments behind an executive order, and i haven't seen those yet." so, there you go. ted cruz says he needs to look at the legal arguments. if only he had known this guy running for senate back in 2011. >> the 14th amendment provides for birthright citizenship. i've looked at the legal arguments against it, and i will tell you as a supreme court litigator, those arguments are not very good. as much as someone may dislike the policy of birthright citizenship, it's in the u.s. constitution. >> seth: wow, somehow cruz lying is only the second grossest thing about that clip, after his hair. [ laughter ] i mean look how sweaty he is. is he using trump deodorant? [ laughter ] [ applause ] all of this birthright citizenship talk is an extension of trump's latest attempt to scare people about a migrant caravan heading toward our southern border. in reality, the caravan is a few thousand vulnerable people fleeing poverty and violence who are still thousands of miles, and months away.
if they get even here at all. but if you listen to trump, it's an imminent invasion full of criminals and terrorists. >> at this very moment, large well organized caravans of migrants are marching toward our southern border. some people call it an invasion. it's like an invasion. you're going to find ms-13, you're going to find middle eastern. you're going to find everything. these are some bad people coming through. these aren't babies. these aren't little angels coming into our country. it's actually mostly young men, and a lot of rough people, a lot of rough people. john, they're pushing the women right up in to the front, not good, and they're pushing the few kids right up to the front. when you look at that caravan and you look, largely very, you know, big percentage of men, young, strong. >> seth: he sounds like a long island divorcee trying to convince her friends to go out to a club. [ light laughter ] "there will be lots of men, young, strong. [ laughter ] they love to travel." [ light laughter ] of course, implying that they're
young strong men is just another racist dog whistle designed to scare people. and in doing that, trump has had the help of a right wing propaganda outlet that exists entirely for one purpose. to disseminate his lies, and whip its audience into a racist frenzy. and over the last few days fox news has gone into overdrive, telling people there might be more caravans and that those caravans might be spreading disease. >> this is an invasion. this is an act of attacking the united states' sovereignty. >> this is a threatening invading force that may well bash its way through our fence the way they did the guatemalan fence. >> and i want to -- >> what about diseases? i mean there's a reason why you can't bring a kid to school unless he's inoculated. >> they're coming in with deseases such as small pox, and leprosy, and t.b. that are going to infect our people in the united states. >> seth: small pox and leprosy? [ laughter ] where is this caravan coming from, medieval england? [ laughter ] the last -- [ applause ] true story. the last naturally occurring
case of small pox was in 1977. it really makes your scare mongering a lot less convincing when the only diseases you can think of are f"t trail." [ light laughter ] but the weirdest example of fox spreading this racist hoax was a segment on lou dobbs' show on monday. dobbs might be fox's most virulent conspiracy theorist. after the mail bombs were sent to prominent democrats, he called them fake. he's also been obsessively tracking the location of the caravan, which as we showed you last week, has sometimes given him pronunciation trouble. >> the caravan of mostly central american immigrants is now in ty ogua -- tonight. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, i just wanted to show you that to give you some context for this next clip. dobbs had a guest on who floated a theory about the migrants spreading disease that was so crazy even dobbs couldn't go along with it. >> we simply cannot tolerate the continued invasion of this
country when americans are suffering every day. the national debt is exploding. we have diseases spreading across the country that are causing polio-like paralysis of our children. it's one thing after the other. >> well, you can't very well blame that disease on illegal immigrants. we don't know the cause of it. i don't know that that's -- i don't think that's fair. a lot of, you know -- but there are plenty of reasons to keep this country secure. including -- including making sure that everyone is healthy when they are brought into the country, without question, right? is that fair? >> that is fair. but that is part of the problem. we don't know where the diseases are coming from. >> well, that's -- you know, what? i think that with that we're going to leave it. [ laughter ] >> seth: guadalajara. lou dobbs just had that moment that a lot of us had in our 20s. remember you're at a party at
someone's house, and you look around, and you go, man everybody at this party is an ass [ bleep ], and then you go, wait, i'm at this party. [ laughter ] the caravan hysteria has spun so far out of control that shephard smith actually had to look straight into the camera this week, and reassure fox viewers that they were not in danger. >> the migrants, according to fox news reporting are more than two months away. if any of them actually come here, but tomorrow is one week before the midterm election. which is what all of this is there is no invasion. no one is coming to get you. there's nothing at all to worry about. [ light laughter ] >> seth: oh my god, fox news has gone so far off the rails that the only sane person who works there has to talk to viewers like children who accidentally saw a scary movie. [ laughter ] "it's okay. there is nothing to worry about. the babadook is not real. and it is not coming to get you."
and that's great. the only problem is a few hours later, sean hannity comes on the same network and screams, "the babadook is real, and it's outside your house." [ laughter ] the caravan hysteria is a con designed to distract everyone while trump and his cronies plunder the government for their own personal gain. that's a point obama made over the weekend when he was campaigning in wisconsin. >> they're trying to convince everybody to be afraid of a bunch of impoverished, malnourished refugees a thousand miles away. it's this group of folks, we don't even know where they are. they're way down there. [ laughter ] that's the biggest thing. and you know as soon as the election is over everybody will be like what? what happened? we were being invaded. where did it go? they're giving tax cuts out to billionaires. they don't want to you notice that. look, look, look over there. wait, look, look. it's like a con where a door to door salesmen tries to sell you a security system while his
buddy sneaks in the back, takes all your stuff. it's like "home alone." you all remember that movie? >> seth: oh my god. he's right. it is like "home alone," and trump was in that, too. [ laughter ] [ applause ] trump's -- trump's racist fear mongering over immigration is the latest scam from a guy who's been scamming people his entire life. and he's right at home in the modern gop. they're robbing you, and they're they do it. they're hoping you won't notice until it's too late, and then you'll say. >> wha-- we'll be right back with michael moore, everybody.rs a a] ♪ ♪ >> for more of seth's "closer looks" be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. ♪ give joy, get joy...

state house or state rep. >> seth: that's really exciting. [ cheers and applause ] >> it's an amazing -- >> seth: while you're voting, i want to say that you -- >> yeah. >> seth:ne of the things you talk about in the film is how the biggest block of voters are those who don't vote. more people didn't vote than voted for either of the candidates. >> it's our largest political party, the non-voters. sad -- sad to say. >> seth: so how do you encourage those? what is the message you give to the non-voters to get them out the door this comingsdng -- the say to non-voters is actually, i don't think it works to, like, shame them or wag your finger at them. i think you should listen to them and find out why they're not voting. don't vote that stay home, do it because they are just -- they have given up, the system has failed them. they don't see any difference between the candidates. it's the same old hacks running. and so they stay home. but i'm going to guess that the majority of non-voters deeply love their country and are deeply patriotic. and it's got to be very hard for
them, seth, to stay home and not participate. and i think they'd love to participate. and so what i say to them this year is there are so many people on the ballot this time that are not the party hacks. i mean there is a -- there is a woman running for congress in west virginia -- she's a chicken farmer. there is a bus driver, i think it's in kentucky that's running. there's a librarian where i live that's running. i mean, these are, like -- you know, there's a lunch lady that's running somewhere out in the northwest. >> seth: uh-huh. >> that's running for office. i mean, like, normal people are ru a lot of them are young people. and i think my -- any non-voter is watching this. i'd say give it a shot, just this one time. show up just this one time. i think you'll be surprised by who's on the ballot. and we can throw all the bastards out. >> seth: there you go. >> that's my -- [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now -- >> oh --
prop one in michigan. >> seth: yeah. >> legalizing marijuana. >> seth: oh, are you on the fence on this one? >> no, do you want to help me fill this one in? >> seth: it looks like it came filled in. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> the band wanted to vote on this. [ laughter ] no, no. this is all my voting. only i have touched this ballot. >> seth: all right, good. >> because they're watching in >> there we go. thank you for letting me vote. >> seth: so i want to ask about this. the predicted blue wave. you were vthaterca donald trump was going to win. you called it -- you called it state by state. so now i'm give you another chance, how do you feel about tuesday? >> well, i'm not going to make the mistake that someone else made on a late night show a couple nights ago. >> seth: okay. >> a democrat. >> seth: yes. >> who just automatically announced, "we're going to win." >> seth: uh-huh. >> and it's like, my god that's what happened in 2016. everybody was throwing the party for hillary before the election. and i think some people stayed home. i think some people didn't think -- like, everybody said --
even "the new york times" on election day in 2016 in that box where they predict. >> seth: yeah. >> said that there was only a 15% chance today of trump winning the presidency. >> seth: right. >> okay, so you got to throw that out. you got to quit this kind of -- the predicting nonsense and you just got to do your job as a citizen. we may not get another time. he's actually talked abo postpone an election because there's -- i can't do the voice that you do. >> seth: no, you're doing great. [ laughter ] >> okay. this is -- this -- [ laughter ] >> seth: by the way, you're like the only person who can't do trump. [ laughter ] >> right? this is you with a cold. >> seth: okay, yeah. >> but it's -- people have to -- look, i think obviously one of two things can happen. and i heard steve bannon lay out his blueprint of how they think they're going to win on tuesday. and they think they're going to
keep the house by one seat. and anybody who doesn't trust that, please remember that donald trump outsmarted us. he outsmarted us in 2016. and won the white house by losing the election. gius to fi. >> so don't think for a second that come tuesday, they don't have every intention of holding on to the house and the senate. and they are good at what they do. that -- that they are able to get away with this. they got away it with gore when he won. we didn't do anything about it. they got away with it when hillary won. we don't do anything about it. they know we us. >> seth: yeah. >> they know we're busy and we got other things to do. [ light laughter ] but they are fanatical about this because they know their time is up. and it's sort of the angry white guy, which actually i'm really trump's demographic. >> seth: yeah. you're a michigan angry white guy. >> i'm an angry white guy over
50 with a high school education. [ light laughter ] so that's me. >> seth: yeah. >> so if i could just speak to my fellow angry white american guys who are semi-uneducated like me. [ light laughter ] dudes, give it up. [ laughter ] we've been running the show for 10,000 years.

[ laughter ] most of us. you know, so -- so i just think there is just this -- trump is in there trying to whip up, as you were showing earlier, that all the fear and all that "here come the hordes," and doing this and that. it's like, you know, people -- hopefully people have not fallen
for it, not the majority. the majority are with us. the majority believe in the liberal agenda. every poll shows this, seth. whether it's climate change. equal pay for women, raising the minimum wage. the majority of americans agree with all those things should happen. and we've got to trust that. and start to feel that we have the power and that we have to exercise it on tuesday. and you got to get five five people that doesn't vote. and we've got to get -- bring five people to the polls with you. have a party afterwards. bring beer. do whatever you've got to do. but let's pack those polling places on tuesday. >> seth: all right, we're going to be right back with more from michael moore.

contact you? >> yup. well, the fbi knocked on my door. >> seth: wow they really -- >> yeah. >> seth: wow, they did physically knock on your door. >> this is a couple days after they caught him. >> seth: sure. >> and they said we need to talk to you because we've gone through the van and through his laptop. and there was a quote, according to them, an abundance of research he had done on you. and he had all this material on you in his van, and on his computer. and frankly we're kind of surprised. we don't -- we assume that one of the bombs was coming to you because of what he had in the van. and can't seem to find it. and then -- and then the other fbi guy made some joke about the postal service. [ laughter ] kind of an interfederal government thing. >> seth: yeah. it was like, "never miss a chance to burn the post office." [ laughter ] >> yeah, right. in front of me. >> seth: in the front of you. >> like, "where is your bomb? you're supposed to have a bomb." [ laughter ] >> seth: you met the pope. that must have been pretty cool. >> two weeks ago.
>> seth: two weeks. what was your interaction with the pope like? >> i went to the weekly audience, and then he asked to speak to me privately. it was an amazing moment and i asked him if i could ask him a question. and he said, "yes." an economic system that benefits the few, the wealthy at the expense of the many is a sin?" and he said to me, "si" in italian. and i said, "so you believe capitalism, the kinda -- the capitalism we have now is a sin?" he goes, "yes, it is." he said, "the poor must always come first." and then he grabbed my hand and he said, "please, pray for me." and i said, "i will, and please pray for me. and he said, "no, you have to make more movies." [ laughter ] and i'm like, "i just wanted a prayer." [ laughter ] he's like, "no, you go back to -- you go back work." he has a sense of humor. >> seth: the next time -- the next time, you meet with producers you are going to be like, "so you know, the pope
wants this." [ laughter ] >> yeah, right. that's right. yes >> seth: yeah, there you go. hey, thanks so much for being here. it's always such a pleasure to see you. >> no, thank you for having me.

>> seth: how are you? >> i am great. >> seth: congratulations on the film. >> thank you. thanks. >> seth: this is -- i know it's your directorial debut. also, your writing debut. you co-wrote it with it your wife. zoe kazan. >> mm-hmm. >> seth: and i'm always fascinated by the process of people who collaborate on writing. as a married couple, how did you figure out? were you sitting in a room together at the same time working on it? >> no. so i think most peopgine pacing behind the computer. >> seth: yes. >> the other person's typing away you're just having an -- that, i mean, simply would not work in a -- when we live together and go to bed together and wake up together. >> seth: uh-huh. >> we actually discovered a super natural work flow which i hope we get to do again someday which is we simply traded drafts back and forth. so i would take it away for a while. we'd go over it. we'd be each other's editor in a way. and then she would take it. and it was really actually fun. >> seth: did you ever have to watch the other person read the draft? because that would be very stressful. >> yeah, but i learned my lesson
the first draft i wrote. >> seth: uh-huh. >> i waited for her to read it. it was an eternity. and she had a lot of notes. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, carey mulligan who's one of the stars and is fantastic in it. you sent it to her. she did not wait a long time to read it. >> no, probably the fastest read i'll ever have. i mean, luckily i know carey so i call her. i said, "i'm going to send you the script tonight." and the next morning she clein go. and she is a really great actor. so to have somebody like that respond that immediately to the character, to the script, was just a great burst of energy and was such an important step in the process. >> seth: yeah, because nothing is worse than when you give somebody something to read, if each day that passes you just, in your head, think that they're coming up with a way to phrase how little they liked it. >> totally. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> well, also being friends. >> seth: yes. >> you know, when we have to let somebody down, it's the worst. you know she'd pacing around her room. "oh, i got to go call paul and let go of this somehow." and so, yeah.
>> seth: you shot in oklahoma and montana. it's a beautiful film. i know you and zoe went out to the northwest. did you drive out there? >> so we did -- the family in the film moves from monna. so we thought, "let's go do the road trip that the family does." a beautiful part of the country. so we took, like, a little vacay writing trip, stayed in bed and breakfasts. so zoe wanted to go on a hike one day out to this waterfall we heard about. >> seth: are you hiking people? >> no. >> seth: okay. >> we live in manhattan. [ laughter ] >> seth: you live in manhattan. yeah, that's not -- >> we're city dwellers. >> seth: yes, okay, gotcha. >> and it's, like, bear season, apparently. it's like end of august, early september. >> seth: yeah, that would be something i wouldn't know, i would have to be told. yeah. [ laughter ] >> no, we were told this. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> but the bears are apparently, like, storing up for winter. so they're hungry. they know what's coming. so i asked the woman at the bed and breakfast, "hey, we are going for this hike. you know, the bears?" and she happened to be a woman who worked at the san diego zoo for, like, 30 years. she said, "well, you don't want to run into a bear because they pin you down and peel you like a banana." >> seth: uh-huh. [ laughter ]
>> she was like, "if you're going to run into something, you know, a lion is better because they go straight for your throat." [ light laughter ] i was like, "thanks." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, this seems wildly unhelpful. yeah. [ light laug >> so i said to zoe, i was like, "let's go to, like, the mountaineering store, the trail store." see, i don't even know what to call the -- >> seth: yeah. >> the store one goes to, to like, buy, you know. [ light laughter ] >> seth: right. >> hiking apparel. >> seth: both of those sounded pretty good. yeah. >> and i said, "let's go talk to them." and i said, "hey, the bears." you know. >> seth: yeah. >> "you know, do i worry about this?" and they said, "no, you know, like, don't shower -- i mean, don't shampoo, condition, don't wear deodorant, you know. and if you're on your womanly times, you know, they can smell that." and i looked at zoe and that morning she had taken a bath, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant. [ light laughter ] she had put on sun screen on every inch of her body. and she was on her period. >> seth: there you go. [ laughter ] that's the hat trick for bears right there. [ laughter ] >> i -- you know, it was like a cartoon when my wife turned into this little edible bear treat.
[ laughter ] you know, and they said, "just make a lot of noise as you walk." so we started on our hike. and so, she's having a great time bopping around the trails. and i'm just seeing her like this animated bear treat. [ laughter ] and so every five to ten seconds i [ laughter ] just kind of letting them know i was here. >> seth: that sounds like the least relaxing hike that's ever taken. [ light laughter ] >> i'm so embarrassed to say that i was terrified the whole time. >> seth: yeah, no. i think that is very accurate. and i think you behaved the right way and you both made it back. and congratulations, you just had a baby girl. so everything worked out great. >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and congratulations on the film, it's really wonderful. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> seth: paul dano, everybody.
