Stephen Colbert and Kim Jong Il!
Hello all,

I'm trying to find an episode, but I can't remember what season it was...anyways all I remember about the episode was Dara telling a story about how he was at a wedding and someone famous tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to move because his wife couldn't see...then having Frankie say that Dara should have crushed his head like a walnut...does this ring a bell for anyone? Thanks.

I remember that, but I can't remember which episode it was. Pretty sure it was series 5 though. Does that help?

Possibly, I'll have a look. Thanks.

Hmm. I've had a bit of a look as well. Pretty sure Ed Byrne was on, though I can't remember who the other guest was.

Okay well that narrows it down a bit, I suppose. Thanks.

Yeah, sorry I can't be more help; I don't have my episodes at hand so I can't check for you. Good luck though.

It's on the "Too Hot For TV" from season five (the particular clip was taken from episode six) - link to youtube

Dara: Actually, I did - I met Alex Salmond once, not on the same night I met Bryan Robson, ehh, but I met Alex Salmond at a wedding once, and I was told, 'Oh Alex Salmond's coming on' and I was 'Oh I've always wanted to meet him he's an interesting character', and he said, 'We'll introduce you.'

Dara: So I'm standing at the wedding and behind me, shuffle shuffle shuffle, and Alex Salmond is there, and he taps me on the shoulder, and turn and he goes ---

Russell: "Do you wanna dance?"

Dara: No. During the wedding ---

Frankie: Did he say, "Do you want pumped?"

Dara: No, he didn't ---

Dara: None of these solutions. This isn't a game, this is actually a story, ah ---

Dara: And he turns and goes, 'Hallo, I'm Alex Salmond,' and I said, 'Hallo, I'm Dara Ó Briain, expecting a chat, and he goes, 'Do you mind moving to the left, my wife can't see the couple.'

Dara: My head was blocking the entire view of the church for his wife and he just -- 'Would you like to move along to the end of the row so as my wife can see the fucking wedding'

Ed: What kind of person, right, when asking someone to move out of their wife's view, introduces themselves with their full name?

Dara: Well I ---

Ed: "Hello, I'm Alex Salmond, would you mind moving out of my wife's way" -- Surely you'd just go, "Alright chief, would you mind--- [gestures to his left]

Frankie: You should have crushed his head like a walnut Dara.

Frankie: [shakes hands] Arrrg!

Dara: [loudly] She's my wife now! [mimes hoisting person over shoulder]

Russell: That would be an amazing ---

Ed: [interrupting] "Hello, I'm Dara Ó Briain. Fuck you and your midget wife."
