a lot of love to that family. >> when you ask barbara or don, you say how are you? he'd say we're fine. she would say we're fine. >> jimmy: and barbara knew every story. >> she would just push her glasses off. she takes off her bra and her head hits the sink. >> with her jewelry. >> the jewelry weighs her down in the pool. >> i remember barbara would be having a conversation with my wife or whomever she was sitting next to, and don would be telling a story, and he would get stuck in a detail, and you wouldn't think barbara would be listening, and she would say it. filling in the blanks. >> and we'll have another round. >> he would say johnny, give me that cookie, and she would say you can't have a cookie. i'd give him the cookies. then i'd stick him the bill and go home. >> i had a dinner story with him. john wouldn't make it. i think he was busy dating a
nine-year-old. >> by the way, the great thing was i finally met a beautiful woman i am madly in love with. don got to meet her and approve her. >> same thing with me, and it's the same woman which is ironic. but we both met women at the same time, and mine is actually a woman. so is yours. i mean -- what? i mean. >> for my age. i'm your senior. i'll tell you this briefly. i wanted to tell this story. we're at dinner at craig's who e-mailed me and said please mention me on the air. so we're at dinner there, and it's barbara, don and me, or i, i don't know, i don't care. and they bring out these little hot dogs wrapped in dough. he liked hip. he's eating one and she goes don, where did you get that. he goes where did i get it? the it's a restaurant. but i ordered it. she gets up.
she's mad. she goes to the bathroom. to make him laugh, that's a big gift. this is one that i'll always remember. so she gets up and goes to the bathroom, and i said you got to get out of this. and the man hit the table. and then he smacked me. did he ever smack you in the? >> jimmy: many times. >> he didn't love comics, but he loved you too. when i first started bringing bob around, i was like keep the comics away, but slowly he started to really love bob, and you could make him laugh. >> it was just really hard for me. what you did the other night is how i feel right now, because i just -- and i don't like doing it in front of people, but i just love third down guy. >> jimmy: i don't want to upset you. >> no, you are. you are. >> jimmy: i do want the say about the two of you, john stamos and bob saget between the cookies and the hot dogs, killed don rickles. we'll be right back with these

but that's the beauty of a store full of surprises. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it. the unpredictability of a flaree may weigh on your mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go, and how to work around your uc. that's how i thought it had to be. but then i talked to my doctor about humira, and learned humira can help get and keep uc under control... when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations and ask your gastroenterologist
oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have... ...irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... ...with viberzi. >> good evening mr. president, nice to see you, and your lovely
wife nancy. it's a treat to me to fly from california to be here for this kind of money. >> that's don rickles with the reagans. so don, i would -- if i had to guess, i'd say you were at hundreds of dinners with don. he had kind of a rotation to stories. if there was somebody new at the table, he would share them. what's your favorite? there were some he only told with very small groups. is there one that comes to mind? >> it would be a frank story. you tell it. you know everything. >> he's told that story. >> jimmy: i think that's what people know most. >> i knew a secret. we had the same audio video guy. all his pass words were hitler. >> okay. a year ago we were at --
>> jimmy: that's excellent. >> that's really easy to figure out. we were at a theater, and he performed. at that time he wouldn't stand. and so he was in the chair. and we were all there. he got up one time in the act. one time. it was planned. and it was to goose -- he stood up and put the mustache on. this is a man. he spent all his energy to stand up and share just to walk across the stage to goose step. >> were you ever at a show where he did his act, and he said the asian person there and the mexican person, and the lights come up, there was no asian person. he might have been there. were you there, guillermo? >> guillermo: i was there. yeah. >> i mean, he was the best. i have to say it's been the highlight of my life to have spent time with him. >> that's the truth. >> jimmy: you spoke to bob newheart today? >> i did.
and i said you know, you're it now, so we're going to take you to dinner. he said i'm attracted to your wife, jenny. and he said oh, that's an age difference. so we are going to take him to dinner. >> we have to find a new person. >> well, bob is pretty cool. >> jimmy: don is already being replaced? >> i was emotional. i need someone to take his place. >> jimmy: this is not american idol or the voice. >> the last time i talked to him was, i guess, it was five weeks ago. i called him and said how are you feeling. he said what do i have to do to get you out of my life? >> that was it. >> so i did apparently have something to do with it. >> jimmy: he did a little one on one thing, not just with people he knew, but also with everyone he passed. i got so many messages on twitter and e-mails of people saying, like, i was a page standing in the hall at nbc, and he said wipe that stupid smile off your face. it was a nice little gift,
something people could tell their families something about don rickles. it's like the pope, you want to be touched on the head, and in this case, you want to be insulted by don as he walks by. >> i was thinking as we were holding hands getting ready to come out here, he wanted so gad b bad to get a kennedy honor. >> jimmy: he thought he had offended the family. >> he said something to joe kennedy about hookers and handguns. >> he's been dead for, what, 70 years. >> he said before i die, i hope i get an honor. >> jimmy: that would be a lovely thing. >> i e-mailed someone at the kennedy center. it was a random thing. no, i e-mailed them because i did a roast of james carville there. >> do you have any other guests because, bob -- >> are you saying shut up?
>> i never thought we'd be friends this long. my god, the first four years we worked together, we weren't besties. you had a mullet. i was a married guy in the palisades. you were getting action all the time. >> you were a oneny jew. >> jimmy: you guys are going to be like the old guys on the muppets. >> i hope that happens. >> jimmy: me too. >> jimmy: we'll be right back with tim robinson. ♪ now look what you made me do

the show are almost direct ripoffs of ones that really exist. >> jimmy: it's hard to make them funnier than they really are. >> it is. >> jimmy: i love it. detroit has ggood ones? what's one of the bests? >> the owner of an eyeglass store used to dance in the commercials. and people kind of liked the dancing, and he was like yeah, the dancing is sexy. we'll call him sexy specks from now on. his kmecommercials were he'd go around the town dancing saying sexy specs. we did one on that called hunky specks. >> jimmy: do you ever hear from him? >> i think that guy is too proud to reach out. >> jimmy: you did something -- you gave us a vision i never thought i would see.
rick, not just a member of the bad boys of the pistons, maybe the baddest of the bad boys. >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. but lambir, if they were prison mates, he would come out on top. >> that's interesting. >> jimmy: i've given it a lot of thought. you got him in a commercial. you do this ridiculous commercial. >> the character he plays tomorrow night is based on a real detroit commercial called mall far superstar. he's a guy who played for the lions but then he had a car dealership in detroit. he wore a cape and would be like come on down for a far better deal, and then he'd fake fly off, because he was a superhero. so we did a quick mahorn and deer born. >> jimmy: had rick acted before? >> he had done other commercials
before. and when we called him to do it, we were so nervous. i grew up watching him. and i loved him. so i was nervous to pitch to him and stuff and be like this is what it is. at first i was like you're still in detroit. there was a long pause and he was like 24/7, baby. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: so that's a yes? >> yeah. and then even onset, you know, we'd -- we made him wear some outfits and stuff. i don't want to ruin it, but he'd be onset and performing in these crazy costumes. they'd call cut, and he'd come over and be like i'm going to find out what bar you guys hang out at and beat your asses. and then he would go back and do it. >> jimmy: when you were working with him, did he feel comfortable as an actor? i think we have a still photograph of him in his costume, right? >> yeah.
>> jimmy: did he take this outfit home? >> he brought it with him. >> jimmy: he is going to beat your ass when he gets home. >> i know. >> jimmy: are there other local commercials you have your eye on or have you done them all? >> there's definitely other ones we haven't hit that we'd like to try to hit next season. there's one, it's an awesome store, it's clothing and shoes and stuff. but back when i was a kid, they had this deal that was 29 or two for 50. and then you could get these things for that. but to show it, they had an animated man pop in. it was little animation, but we would come in and be like these boots, 29 or two for 50. we want to get him in there sometime. he's the best. >> jimmy: i understand he's there 24/7. >> that's mahorn. >> jimmy: i got it mixed up. congratulations on the show. you picked up for a second season.

we're going to start here tonight with a bizarre and disturbing moment caught on camera aboard a united airlines flight. a man dragged off the plane for refusing to give up the seat he had already paid for. he was left bleeding and his fellow passengers were stunned. were any laws broken here and could this happen to you? [ screaming ] >> reporter: they are the shocking images of a passenger caught in a travel nightmare. a man visibly shaken as he's yanked -- >> come on. >> reporter: and then dragged off a united jet by law enforcement. >> oh, my god, look at what you did to him. >> reporter: all after refusing to give up his seat. tonight chicago aviation security officer put on leave. for many of the passengers and for many of the millions who have seen this clip, the question is how did it get to this point? >> it was surreal.
no one expected it to happen like that. >> reporter: it was scheduled to leave chicago sunday evening at 5:40. the destination? louisville, kentucky. it's when the passengers got on board that the crew started to offer vouchers for a hand full of seats. >> $800 sounded nice. i thought it was unusual nobody was volunteering. i think it was because there was no other flight until 2 p.m. today. >> reporter: united saying they weren't overbooked. they claim the passengers were all on board when crew members approached the gate agents and needed to be in louisville to work on their own flight. four seats would be needed. >> everybody was seated by then, and the fact that they told us we would not leave until four people volunteered, there was just a real sense on the plane that that wasn't right. >> reporter: with no takers, a computer picked four passengers offering them $1,000, the airline says. all complied except this
69-year-old man who said he's a doctor and needed to get home to treat patients? >> two police come in in full gear. they tell him he has to leave the plane. >> reporter: john, the man in the orange shirt was sitting right in front of the passenger he saw and heard it all, he says. how do you react when the police aren't asking questions. they're just trying to forcibly remove the man? i could not believe what i was seeing or hearing. i was in shock. >> reporter: and so were other passengers. many of them recording as the officers dragged the man down the aisle. >> i have to go home. >> reporter: minutes later the man slipped back onto the jet. >> i have to go home. >> reporter: before he was removed again. the ceo calling it an upsetting event and saying the airline is reaching out to the man to address and resolve this situation. in an internal memo, they were saying he was approached a few more times in order to gain his compliance. each time he refused. the passenger has yet to
comment. >> you nighted may have been right legally, but morally it's hard to make a case for the way this man was treated. and people are expressing their outrage. >> look at what you did to him. >> reporter: yet demanding a paying customer to give up a seat is perfectly legal. >> it's part of a document that nobody looks at called the contract of carriage. it gives the airlines, the pilot, the flight attendant, all sorts of rights to do whatever they want. >> reporter: this is the second case of negative press for united airlines in the last two weeks. late last month two teenagers had to change clothes before boarding a flight from denver to minneapolis. >> we heard the gate agent say these aren't my rules. i just enforce them. >> reporter: airlines have rules for every situation. but sometimes social media doesn't look at the rules. they look at the outcomes. >> to me, it seems like a sexist policy. >> reporter: united says the family was flying under relatives and friends flying for free or at discounted prices.
the airline told abc news when taking advantage of this benefit, all employees and pass riders are considered representatives of united. the passengers were not in compliance with our dress code for company benefit travel. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: leggings aside, this is not the first time we've seen airport security dragging a passenger down a plane aisle. this one went viral. a delta airlines representative said in a statement at the time that the passenger was not complying with boarding and bagging checking procedures and removed by local law enforcement. and not even two weeks after that incident, an unruly passenger was removed from a jet blue flight not by police but by staff at the request of the secret service after reportedly harassing ivanka trump. >> he was upset. he walked on as soon as he saw her, he started shaking.
>> reporter: the secret service said they made the decision to remove the passenger from the aircraft. jet blue wrote in a statement the decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly and they worked to reaccommodate the party on the next available flight. people behaving badly on planes is not a new phenomenon. between 2007 and 2015 there were nearly 50,000 unruly incidents. 40% of airlines report they diverted a flight last year because of an unruly passenger. example, this freakout at 40,000 feet. >> all of a sudden this guy who was sleeping just woke up out of nowhere and started flipping out. >> reporter: this passenger punching and kicking as flight attendants struggled to restrain him. >> everyone is freaking out. i was a little nervous. i wasn't sure what the guy was trying to do. >> okay. >> reporter: or this guy growing more irate by the moment in a heated exchange.
>> i'm 28. i made $4 million a year. what do you do? nothing. shut up. >> yeah, right. i own six houses. [ screaming ] >> reporter: but other than refusing to leave his seat, there's been no evidence that this man who claims to be a doctor on his way to see patients in louisville, did anything wrong. when you look at this tape, does it look like excessive force to you? >> absolutely. the question is whose fault is it? whose to blame? united calls the police department. the police shows up and drags the guy out. the excessive force here is really from the police. not united. >> look at what you did. >> reporter: what comes next may be a lawsuit? if that passenger files a lawsuit, it's most likely against the police, not the airline. >> it will be against both. the airline has every right to involuntarily deny access to the plane. what makes this different is this wasn't about denying
access. this was about yanking someone off. >> reporter: might make that $800 coupon seem like small potatoes. next here, the scandal and alabama, the alleged love affair turned alleged criminal coverup that brought down the state's governor. i take movantik for oic, opioid-induced constipation. had a bad back injury, my doctor prescribed opioids which helped with the chronic pain, but backed me up big-time. tried prunes, laxatives, still constipated... had to talk to my doctor. she said, "how long you been holding this in?" (laughs) that was my movantik moment. my doctor told me that movantik is specifically designed for oic and can help you go more often. don't take movantik if you have a bowel blockage or a history of them. movantik may cause serious side effects, including symptoms of opioid withdrawal, severe stomach pain and/or diarrhea, and tears in the stomach or intestine. tell your doctor about any side effects
and about medicines you take. movantik may interact with them causing side effects. why hold it in? have your movantik moment. talk to your doctor about opioid-induced constipation. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. my advice for looking get your beauty sleep. and use aveeno® absolutely ageless® night cream with active naturals® blackberry complex. younger looking skin can start today. absolutely ageless® from aveeno®. just head & shoulders?

aide. >> if we're going to do what we did the other night, we are going to have to start. >> reporter: this is the voice of the alabama governor bentley caught whispering sweet nothings to a woman that wasn't his wife. >> you know what, when, when i stand behind you, and i put my arms around you, and i put my hands on your breasts and i put my hands in and just. >> reporter: on the other end of the line is one of his long time campaign consultants who is also very married. they'll their alleged affair is no crime, the coverup is. the it's taken the the governor to the big house at least long enough to take this booking photo. police say he illegally used resources to pay his alleged girlfriend and hide the affair
in a deal that will help him from serving a long sentence, he made a couple confessions. he was fingerprinted and paid bond like a common criminal. and then faced the music that's been going through the hallways of legislature for two years. >> i have decided it is time for me to step down as alabama's governor. >> we know that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. robert bentley could not handle the power. >> reporter: the story reads like a bad romance novel. >> listen to me. take your earring off and let me kiss your ear. >> reporter: all that sexy talk was taking from a dermatologist and a former deeken who ran for governor preaching family values. >> i've served my country, state
and patience with honesty and integrity. i'll do the same as governor. >> reporter: by his side was his loyal wife of nearly 50 years. >> he was almost a grandfather figure. >> reporter: bentley was new to politics and decided to hire someone with good experience in the media. rebekah mason. she was married and nearly 30 years his junior. once bentley won the election, her influence on the governor grew. >> eventually she became his top adviser. that caused a lot of concern. she flattered him and flirted with him. >> reporter: all of a sudden he was acting brand new. >> he started dressing better. his wife noticed. she not only noticed the changes in the wardrobe but also the changes in his demeanor. >> reporter: the first lady wasn't alone. people in the office said the governor started acting strangely. >> they would walk into a room where the governor and rebekah
mason were together and both the dwroer governor and mason would be start startled. >> reporter: in the spring of 2016 14, governor bentley sent a text meant for rebecca to his wife. his wife was soon getting ahold of text messages between them where bentley writes things like i'm yours forever and i love you so much, and took it a step further when she left her chchb next to her husband and made sure it was recording while he called his alleged girlfriend. >> i love that too, putting my hands on you. >> she had one of her aides download the recording to a laptop and burn them onto a cd. and the cds became a bit of an obsession for the governor once he discovered he was recorded. >> reporter: he went too far trying to keep his secret, being

physical. >> i want everyone to know, though, that i have never had a physical affair with mrs. mason. >> reporter: but there was no walking away from what he called inappropriate remarks. mason resigned in march, 2016. >> i said some inappropriate things, and i know that i did that. and so i'm just apologizing for that to her, and i've apologized to my family and the state of alabama. >> reporter: the mess was grit in the auditor officer. >> an affair among people is not in and of itself a crime. accusations are he used state resources to further the affair with the senior staffer. and to cover it up. >> i just found some obvious signs that things were wrong. 120 days you cannot raise money after the election is over. and i looked and then he'd done
that twice. >> this was unbelievable. >> reporter: the complaints led to an investigation that produced this 131 page report released friday by the house judiciary committee. it accused him of an extensive abuse of power. lawmakers called for his impeachment in his own party. >> everybody wants to make a joke out of it. for us, we're living it. and it's just an absolute embarrassment. my district has suffered for the last two years because my battle with the governor. >> the way you keep politicians straight is watch rim. >> reporter: part of the deal, he has to pay back campaign funds he spent on rebekah mason, agree to never run for office again and serve a year's probation. he walks away with his freedom, but it seems he's lost everything else. >> his wife divorced him in september of 2015. he's lost his children. they no longer talk to him, and now he's lost his office.
