[Cheers and applause]

Both: Oh, wow.

Ryan: That's great.

Kelly: Thank you. Wow, hi. Oh.


[Cheers and applause]

Hey, everybody, guess what. It's Memorial Day, Memorial Day, and welcome, welcome to our gorgeous men and women of the armed services.

[Cheers and applause]

Better--oh, pl--please, have a seat, please.

Ryan: Have a seat, relax.

Kelly: Um, yes, thank you. Thank you.

Ryan: Thank you for your service.

Kelly: [sighs]

Ryan: Thank you for everything you do for us. Gosh, do I feel safe today with everybody in here.

Kelly: I know. It's the safest I've ever felt, and I said, "Our audience is always gorgeous, but today it's extra gorgeous." So congratulations.

Ryan: Yeah.

[Cheers and applause]

So we've got some of the Navy, as well as the Marines, Coast Guard too. Uss "Kearsarge" here.

Kelly: Yeah, the-- we have "Kearsarge."

Ryan: Uss "San Jacinto" is here.

Kelly: Yeah, right there.

Ryan: Uss "Monterey."

[Cheers and applause]

Whoa. That must be a big ship.

Kelly: They're so hyper.

Ryan: That's a big one. Uss "Lassen."

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: Okay, okay, wait, and from the Marines, Camp Lejeune is represented.

[Cheers and applause]

I got so excited, I just punched Ryan in the face.


The Coast Guard from Staten Island is here.

[Cheers and applause]

Yeah, small but mighty! Small but mighty!

Ryan: Yeah.

[Both laugh]

And midshipmen from the Naval Academy here as well.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: [sighs]

Ryan: Well, the pressure's on for us.

Kelly: I know, I know. Welcome, everybody, welcome. We're so happy that you could spend the day with us here today.

Ryan: So...interesting. Memorial Day, obviously honoring the soldiers who died while serving in the military. It wasn't till 1967 that it was legally named Memorial Day, and it became a federal holiday in 1971, but, I mean, a lot of people think about the long weekend and the barbecue, but that's truly what the meaning is, and why we--

Kelly: Yeah, of course.

Ryan: Why we honor those who serve.

Kelly: It's, um, it's--

[Cheers and applause]

Gelman, it's pretty shocking to realize we are older than Memorial Day.

Gelman: Yeah, that is--

Kelly: I just realized that. We're older than Memorial Day.

Gelman: Wow.

Kelly: So, uh...

Ryan: Well, my--

Kelly: Not you. You're not.

Ryan: No, I'm a millennial.

Kelly: You're a millennial.


Yes, like everybody here.

Ryan: When they laugh at you for saying it, you know you're not.


I'm--no, my grand--so I grew up going to different military bases. My grandfather was a major general in the Army.

Kelly: Yes, yes.

Ryan: So two stars. I got--he had two stars on each soldier. As a kid I'm like, "No, you're a four-star general."

Kelly: Right.

Ryan: Uh, and so every summer for summer vacation, he was stationed in different places and I would get to go KlyelHad to■l be so exghciti, t?

Ryan: Well, it was the as a kid too. You're on these bases, and for the generals, they got to go in cars with flags on the front, and they'd go to different ceremonies, and there was one ceremony-- he was stationed once-- he had to go to Honolulu for something, and I was there, and I ended up-- I like to say hi to people and hang out with people and be social on the military base as a nine-year-old, and he was shaking hands with different people in a receiving line, and I joined the far end of the receiving line and also was shaking hands as well.

Not in uniform and no official status, but, uh, you know, he was an amazing man, an amazing general. So we miss him, love him, and appreciate him.

Kelly: Yeah, sure do.

Ryan: Major General Steen.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: And it's so nice when they're in town, you know. For those of you visiting from out of town, if you g--it's Fleet Week, so you can go and go on the ships, and everybody-- we always take our kids, and everybody is so, um...

Helpful and--and really, like, explains their job and what they do and what the equipment means, and it's always a big--it's a big thrill for, you know, especially, you know, kids who live in the city and don't really get to see that very often.

It's nice for them. So thank you for all of that also. Um, now...

Ryan: Okay, what's happening?

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: And where-- here's what I wanna know: Where are you all gonna go tonight? Have you decided?


When you go out, do people pick up your drinks for you?

>> No.

Kelly: No, they should though. Don't you thi--I think they should.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: Yeah, you should-- you should--they should definitely eat for free wherever they eat, right?

Kelly: Yeah, yeah, it should all be free for free. It should be for free. It should be for free.


[Cheers and applause]

Talking to you, restaurants of New York.


And bars, et al. Listen, I know that so many of you in the room are very physically fit 'cause I'm-- 'cause I have eyes.

Ryan: 'Cause we can see you.


Kelly: And I know that there's a lot of intense training as part of, uh, the military, but have you ever tried goat yoga? Anybody know what goat yoga is?

>> No.

Kelly: No?

Ryan: No.

Kelly: Well, I'm gonna broa-- I'm gonna broaden your minds right now. This is goat yoga. It's a new trend. People doing yoga with goats on top of them.

They say that it's good for, uh--wait, what is it good for?


It's good to do a cat with a goat on your back. They say that goat limbs help them achieve their positions. I'm not quite sure why goat limbs, but--have anything to do with helping them achieve their positions, but we can all agree that that's adorable.

Ryan: That is cute.

Audience: Aww.

Kelly: Who doesn't wanna get licked by a goat after the gym?


And there's a fine line between a goat helping you do yoga and eating your clothes off your back. So that's something for you to consider when you're on your travels...

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: I always wondered what Noah did after the ark. I guess he opened up a yoga school.

Kelly: Yeah, these are offered--goat yoga classes are found in Oregon to Arizona and all the way over in Massachusetts. In case you're looking for something new to try.

Ryan: I thought this was funny. So if you went camping over the weekend, if you're a big camper, and summertime coming up, a lot of you doing some family camping trips.

I was talking about the bear last week that came to my tent.

Kelly: Oh, yeah, 'cause you dumped the oyster juice out of the--

Ryan: Yes, I got a can of smoked oysters so I didn't have to cook in the woods, and I opened up the can and I dumped out the oil outside the front of the tent, and I went to bed, and the bears came to lick up the oil, which scared me to death, but a bear trying to get doughnuts, even better, ripped off the bumper of a car used to be-- delivering the pastries in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

So the bear thought...


"There are doughnuts in that vehicle." So goes and rips off the bumper, no doughnuts in the vehicle.

Kelly: Oh.

Ryan: So the cops come and the cop joked. He says, "Well, I guess if any one of us is an expert about this, it's us."

Kelly: Right, yeah, right. Yeah, yep.


Ryan: [stammers]

There was a lingering smell but no actual doughnuts in there.

Kelly: You know, our--we-- our neighbors in Colorado had a bear break into their house, ripped the refrigerator out of the wall, ate all the Lean Cuisine, specifically, and then, uh...

Took a poop on the living room floor. Which I think is, like, the ultimate insult. It's like, "Can't you just use the facilities?" You figured out how to get into the house and the refrigerator, and then you poop on the floor?

Use the toilet.

Ryan: I would be insulted they took my Lean Cuisine. I mean, that's--that's valuable.

Kelly: Yeah, right, right.

Ryan: All right, shall we get into it today? Got a great show for you.

Kelly: Yes, yes, Ricky Gervais is here. Always fun, Ricky Gervais.

Ryan: From the series "This Is Us," Chrissy Metz is with us.

Kelly: Hey, a performance by Nelly.

Ryan: Yeah. Nelly's gonna--a performance for us.

Ryan: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Plus we're announcing a new photo contest that could win you a $10,000 spa vacation. We like that.

Kelly: Mm, yes.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: I'm learning to cover my mug.

Kelly: Yeah, cover your mug. It's time for Burst into Spring Travel Trivia.

Kelly: Hey, here he comes.

Ryan: I love him.

Kelly: An Emmy and Golden Go--Globe winning comedy genius. Easy for me to say. Please welcome the one and only Ricky Gervais.

Ryan: The best.

[Cheers and applause]

>> Hello. This is the best. It's the best. How are you?

Kelly: I'm good.

Ryan: How are you, man?

>> Very good.

Ryan: Nice to see you.

>> Ah.

Kelly: I am a disaster. Hi.

>> Did you fluff the line at the beginning?

Kelly: I did, I fluffed your line and then I almost fell out of my chair.

>> Who cares?

Kelly: Who cares? You're right.

Both: Who cares?

Kelly: It doesn't matter.

>> You've got problems? I've gotta sit next to you two. They're--they're so perfect, aren't they? I feel like-- it's like Ken and Barbie came to life and made friends with a fat old teddy bear.

Kelly: I was just thinking how good you look and svelte, though.

>> I don't even shave my chest like him.

Ryan: Why'd you point to me?

>> Well, 'cause--well, 'cause I'm not gonna point to her, am I?

Ryan: Well...

Kelly: I do shave my chest, as a matter of fact.

Ryan: Haven't you been watching this show, Gervais? I'm trying to grow it.

Kelly: Now, how do yo-- now, Ryan is the expert of the red carpet.

>> I know.

Kelly: How do you--do you get ready for the red carpet? What is your routine?

>> Oh, it's always depressing because I--


No, because I never li-- I gave up trying when I was about 28, 29. I just gave up fashion. It doesn't work for me. Everything I've got is either jeans or track suit or an elasticated waistband.

I'd rather be in my pajamas. So to put on a tuxedo, I probably look good for about 30 seconds, and then it's just... Do you know what I mean? Like a child who's been made to put something on he fidgets and gets, you know...

Ryan: It's--you sweat the second you get--

>> You're the first person I see on the red carpet. It's 3--usually 3:00, it's our date, and I see him.

Ryan: For every award show 'cause he's at every one of them collecting awards.

>> And I'm already sweating and complaining at 3:00 P.M.

Kelly: Yeah, what about if you wear your pajamas to the award show? Like, get a--like, a dressed-up "pajama"?

>> So it looks like a print with a tuxedo?

Kelly: Yeah, what do you think about that?

>> That's an amazing idea.

Kelly: Why don't--I mean--

>> That is an amazing idea.

Ryan: We'll see you at the Oscars.

Kelly: Can you design that for him?

Ryan: Yeah, we could figure that out.

>> Tux jimjams. That would sell.

Kelly: Now, you're on tour right now. The "Humanity" world tour.

>> Yes, I am indeed.

Kelly: When's the last time you toured? It was a while ago.

[Cheers and applause]

>> Oh, thank you. Uh, seven years ago. I haven't toured for seven years. If you don't count the Golden Globes, which was-- which you shouldn't.

Kelly: A test tour.

>> Exactly, yeah, yeah.

Ryan: Where have your favorite places been? You've been all over, I know. I follow you.

>> I've been all over. Uh, Reykjavik, probably. I'd never been before, and it's just to beautiful. It's so laid-back. The--honestly, the-- just the geography of it, and they're so cool and--

Ryan: We've got a photo. Yeah--look at--there you are.

>> Oh, yeah.

Kelly: You settled right in.

>> I always take a bath pic wherever I am, and so I found a Vikings helmet in a shop and...


And that's mud from the Blue Lagoon. So I just thought, "That's my Icelandic pic."

Kelly: So did you go to the Blue Lagoon?

>> I didn't, I didn't. No, the crew did. I was busy.

Kelly: And they just brought you back mud?

>> They brought me back mud, and I put it on my face and sat in the-- see, he does that every day. That's like nothing for him.

Ryan: This is the secret. It's good for your glands and pores.

Kelly: Has the Blue Lagoon shipped to his hotel every day.

Ryan: And, by the way, Ricky, I have the pigtails as well.


So do you--thinking back, do you remember the first time you did stand-up and what it was like?

>> Uh... I do, actually. I made the mistake-- I'd had a couple of pints, um, which you--which you shouldn't really do, and I went up onstage and there--and I went...


"Oh, it's hot up here," and they just went-- it just went silent, and why would you say that? Why would you say "it's hot up here"? And they were just waiting for the joke.

And then it was okay, but, um, I do-- yeah, the first time, it was just-- it was a shock to me how difficult it was. 'Cause you think you can just-- everyone thinks they can just go up and be funny 'cause everyone's funny.

Everyone's funny in their private life.

Kelly: In the right setting.

>> And then you get up onstage and it suddenly-- it suddenly drains away. Do you know what I mean? So you've got to get used to being confident. If you know what I mean.

Even if you are confident, you've still got to act--

Ryan: There's a--after watching you over the years, there's a cadence to some of your humor that maybe people didn't understand at first.

>> I think--that's the really good thing about leaving it a long time, and having done it, I think I'm the best stand-up I've been ever, and it took 15 years to get good.

I really think that.

Kelly: No kidding.

>> And also, the audience know me and they know what I'm like, so they get it.

Ryan: They get it now.

>> I don't have to set it up so much. They--they go, "Oh, he's saying horrendous things, but he doesn't mean them."


Ryan: But you're--you're a big-hearted guy. You're an animal lover.

>> Yeah, I love animals.

Ryan: What pets do you have?

>> Um, we've just got a cat that's at home called Ollie. The most beautiful--aww, look at Ollie.

Kelly: Aww.

>> She is so gorgeous.

Kelly: Is she a fancy cat? Is that, uh...

>> Well, I think she-- she thinks she is.

Kelly: Right.

>> Well, all cat do, don't they?

Kelly: Yeah. I thought I saw a cigarette in her paw.

>> Exactly. She'd really suit that. Yeah, a cigarette holder and a little tiara. She'd really--

Kelly: Home already, dear?

>> Exactly. She really thinks she owns the place, and they do.

Ryan: Have you always been a cat guy?

>> I've always been an animal guy. Even, like, you know, as a kid, I'd just be in the garden looking for bugs and--


I don't know if I can tell this story. So...

Kelly: Well, try.

>> I've got older brothers and sisters, right, um, and they used to take me out 'cause--when I was, like, six, seven, eight, they'd take me out in the woods to sort of forage, and-- you know, and I remember I was out with my sister who was about--I was about eight.

She was about 20. It was her and her boyfriend, and they drove me out to the woods and they let me play, and I found a perfect little shed, um, snakeskin, and I was--I loved this, and I was playing with it, and she said, "Put it down." "It's"--you know, "It's got germs and everything," and I realized she was scared of the snakeskin, so I started teasing her, right?

So I'm chasing around my 20-year-old s--I'm eight, right? She's laughing and going, "You're not getting in the car with that." And she made me leave it there, okay.

So years later, I was about 14 or 15, and I had my mates around, and I was teasing her to my mates saying, "Oh, she was scared of sna-- I was chasing her around with a snakeskin.

She was scared." And she chose that time to tell me that I'd actually been running around with a used condom.

Kelly: Oh, my--


[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: Coming up, we'll talk about Ricky's comedy heroes, the influences. Right after this.

All: Yeah.

All: [gasp]

>> [Thumps]

>> [Cries]

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: Ricky Gervais, "David Brent: Life on the Road." I watched this. It's--it's hysterical. There--there are several things that are so funny, but it's hysterical because the character's so oblivious.

He's just--

>> Yeah, he's just not self-aware. He's trying to be famous. He's a--he's a sales rep in Slough, and he's spending his money on trying to be a rock star.

There's a lot of it about. Do you know what I mean?

Kelly: Of course.

>> You do the show with it. Everyone wants to be famous, and he's left it too late. He's--you know, he's 55 years old, and he hasn't quite got it, but he spends his money on--you know, he gets a band together who are just there for the cash, they're session musicians, and he writes these awful songs, and it's--it's tragic, but it's really funny 'cause he's so-- he's so confident in himself.

Do you know what I mean? He just thinks--

Kelly: How many years have you played this character?

>> Um, well, I--

Kelly: 'Cause you took a break.

>> I took a break. You know, "The Office," for me, my version of "The Office," was 2001 to 2003.

Ryan: What's it like being back in the role?

>> Honestly, it was like finding an old pair of slippers in the-- in the wardrobe. It just--it was so much fun to revisit, and the good thing about leaving it this long is that the world's changed in the last 12 years, you know.

Our sympathies are with him more. I mean, 'cause he was a bit of a--an early narcissist and a bit of a buffoon, but by today's standards...

Kelly: Right.

>> Do you know what I mean? He's--he's actually--

Ryan: He just fits right in.

>> He's--yeah, yeah, yeah.

Ryan: What about the-- the name?

Kelly: We've all--we've all become so narcissistic that now he's just or friend.

>> He--well, we sort of--we sort of let him off when we see the people that go on "The Apprentice" and say things like, "I would destroy anyone who stands in my way." You know what I mean?

He's almost bullied now at work by this new alpha male, so...

Ryan: The band's name is Foregone Conclusion. Tell me about that name.

>> Yeah, well, I just liked that name because a bad band name is--is wonderful, and it's so--it's so pedestrian. It's such a cliché, and just using a phrase.

Just--Foregone Conclusion. What does that mean? And he thinks it's so sexy. You know, he sings songs about being a rep and selling tampons and going up and down motorways, and it's just so boring, but he really means it.

I-I've got an affection for him 'cause he--he tries his hardest, you know. It--he falls over, but he gets back up, and--

Kelly: He always dreams. Still dreams.

>> He always dreams. I'm sort of with him in a way. Do you know what I mean?

Kelly: Of course.

>> [Stammers]

He's wounded, but he's--

Kelly: Yeah, who are your comedy heroes? Like, did you have an early inspiration?

>> Yeah, Laurel and Hardy...

Kelly: No kidding.

Ryan: Oh, yeah.

>> And I've stolen from them as well because they're--they sort of fell over and got back up for our pleasure, and I love the fact that they were optimistic, and they were never gonna win, but they thought they were, and I love that in people.

I, you know--um, and it was about their sort of relationship. They were both idiots, and they thought the other one was a bigger idiot, and I thought--I liked it because they were precarious.

You knew something was gonna go wrong, but you loved 'em for it. I wanna hug 'em. I love 'em.

Ryan: Wha--what's the secret? You create these--you do create these characters that people just love. What's the secret potion?

>> I think--well, write about what you know, and I worked in an office for ten years and then I did "The Office," and I always do--I draw on experience, but I think it's-- I think--comedy, it's best is saying we're all idiots, and that all right.

So I think--I think you wanna recognize something in the person. I think people like David Brent because they've done that. They've embarrassed themselves socially, you know, and I just think you feel it.

I think it's about empathy. I think comedy's about empathy.

Ryan: We embarrass ourselves on a morning basis, right?

Kelly: Oh, it's--you can-- we are living proof that you cannot die from embarrassment.

Ryan: It's true.

>> Exactly, exactly.

Ryan: Ricky Gervais, "David Brent: Life on the Road" available on Netflix. Great to see you, buddy.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: Coming up next, Chrissy Metz from "This Is Us." Stick around.

Announcer: Tomorrow on "Live," from "Designated Survivor," Kal Penn.

Kelly: Oh, wow.

Ryan: Yeah, I l Like, James Cameron.

Kelly: Yeah, major, major.

>> So I was like, "If I can even string a sentence together, that will be great. I don't know if I could say my line."

Art. Do that?

>> Come on!

Ryan: That's--that's talent right there. Nice.

>> It's engrained now. It's, like, engrained.

Kelly: That's incredible.

>> Yeah, in the f-- yeah, in front of James Cameron.

I was like...[exhales]

Kelly: And so did James Cam-- Like, has he called you and reached out...

>> He hasn't called yet.

Kelly: "And we should collaborate?" He's going to, though.

>> Maybe. Be right back.

And I know it's gonna be a little creepy, uh...

[Gentle guitar music]

>> This is your dad?

>> Jack.

Ryan: Oh, I remember watching that. I remember seeing that.

>> Oh, my goodness.

Kelly: He's crying.

Ryan: It's like--

Kelly: He's crying again.

Ryan: Chrissy Metz is with us, "This Is Us." No, it's--it's the acting, but also that little guitar that-- when the guitar sweeps in.

>> Sid, he's our musical composer, he's incredible.

Ryan: I'm like, "Here it comes."

>> I know, they get you so good.

Ryan: Well, you guys have such a compelling relationship on the show, you know.

>> Ah, well, Chris makes it look like I know what I'm doing, and I appreciate him for that.

Kelly: He's so lovely.

Ryan: He's terrific.

>> He's amazing.

Kelly: Do people think you're a couple in real life?

>> Oh, there was a makeup artist who was like, "How long have you been together?"

Kelly: Right. It's really funny, yeah.

>> I'm like, "We're not. He's been married for six years," and she's like...


"So believable," and so...

Ryan: You know you're good when people believe it in real life.

>> I mean, that's the best compliment ever.

Kelly: And you were--and you got--it was such a big year for you. You got a Golden Globe nomination.

Ryan: Oh, yeah, that's awesome.

>> What?

[Cheers and applause]

So wild.

Ryan: How'd that feel? So exciting?

>> When Don Cheadle says your name, "a," and then in reference to a Golden Globe nominee, you're like, "Is this my life?" 4:30 in the morning--

Ryan: Oh, did--he read the--

>> Yes, he read.

Kelly: Oh, my gosh.

>> Yeah, it was so--

Kelly: So did somebody call you and wake you up?

>> No, my agent, knock, knock, knock at 4:00 in the morning. He's like, "Get up." 'Cause, of course, it's East Coast time. He's like, "Get up," and I'm like, "This is very presumptuous.

We do not know anything," and he's like, "Well, maybe at least the show will be nominated."

Ryan: Oh, so he got there before you were nominated. That's real supportive.

>> Yes, so I--I know. A very, very nice--

Kelly: That's incredible.

>> Yeah, and--

Kelly: It would have been such a bummer if--

>> Can you imagine? How anticlimactic. Sorry.

Kelly: Yeah, "You want--you want a cup of coffee since you're here?"

>> That's why I was like, "This is very presumptuous. I don't think we should turn on the tv. This is--no."

Kelly: That was good.

>> Yeah, yeah.

Kelly: All right, just knock on it.

Ryan: Now, Kate--the show, if you haven't seen it, has flashbacks, and you have-- there are several Kates or a couple other Kates, right?

>> There are two other Kates.

Ryan: Two other Kates.

>> Yes, an eight-year-old, Mackenzie--

Ryan: They're the Kates.

>> Yes, and Hannah, who plays the 15-year-old. The craziest part is, when I was a talent agent, she was my client.

Ryan: The one in the middle?

>> Hannah, in--yes. Hannah Zeile.

Kelly: Is that true?

>> Yes. I know. Full circle, guys.

Kelly: I mean, it really--

>> So wild.

Kelly: It means something, right?

>> Yeah, it's so wild.

Ryan: You would book her on auditions and for jobs...

>> Yeah, for commercials, yeah. Yeah, she was my commercial client.

Ryan: Did you book her for this role?

>> No, no. No, I wasn't double dipping.

Ryan: [laughs]

>> No, no, I was like, "I want a real career of my own." Yeah.

Kelly: So now, will you get any time off? Do you get time off? Or will you just go right into a movie or go right into...

>> Um, I just wrapped a independent movie called "Sierra Burgess is a Loser."

Kelly: Oh.

>> Uh, Shannon Purser, who played Barbara in "Stranger Things," is the lead of the character--of the movie.

Both: Oh, yeah.

>> I apologize. Um, but I play her best friend's mom. So, like, a very young kind of very out-there comedic mom, which is sort of what I wanted to do.

Kelly: Right, no, I love that you're playing-- it's so Hollywood: You're the mom. You're playing the mom.

>> Yes, I'm the young mom.

Kelly: You're the young mom.

>> I'm the young mom. I'll play--I'll play it. I'll play the old, the young, the middle. I don't care. Um, but it's a comedic role, and it's a really fun independent, um, movie with-- with a message, so...

Ryan: Well, we're such big fans of your work. We just love you to death.

>> Oh, thank you. I'm a big fan of yours.

Ryan: It's so great to see you.

>> Thank you.

Ryan: First season of "This Is Us" is available now on Hulu.

Kelly: Hey, coming up next, Nelly performs for us. Stick around.

Announcer: Tomorrow on "Live," Mike Tyson.

♪ This kitchen isn't real. Like the labels some chicken brands use to mislead people. Just smoke and mirrors to get 'em to pay more. Labels like "No added hormones or steroids." (studio audience laughing) It's funny because it's illegal to give chickens added hormones or steroids.

At Sanderson Farms, we raise good, honest chicken. Let's check the oven. (studio audience "ooooh" & "aaaah at the chicken) "Ooooh" and "Aaaah" is right!

Sanderson Farms. Good, honest chicken.

Kelly: That was amazing.

Ryan: Here he is. What's up, brother? Great to see you, man.

>> I'm good, I'm good. Thank you, baby. Thank you very much.

Ryan: So good.

Kelly: Happy Memorial Day.

>> Thank you, sweetness.

Kelly: Nobody--nobody puts a party anthem together like Nelly.

>> Oh, wow.

Kelly: Am I right or am I right?

>> Thank you, sweetness. Thank you very much.

Ryan: Well, I mean, I love all your music and I've known you for a long time. What I love about you is that early on, you broke down the walls to all the different categories and genres of music.

"Why do their have to be rules in music," you said, right?

>> Yeah, why does there have to be rules? I mean, one of my thing was, um, I just wanted to make great music, and I don't care where the number one sits at on what chart, what format, just as long as it sits number one.

Ryan: Remember, he did with Tim McGraw, huge, huge single...

Kelly: Yeah, of course, yeah. Of course.

Ryan: Years ago.

>> So things have been great.

Kelly: Now I understand this day has meaning for you. Your father is in the Air Force.

>> Yeah, my father was in the Air Force. I was actually born, um-- not on the military base because at that time in Austin, kids weren't born on the base, they were born right outside at the hospital, but I'm sort of a military brat myself, so...

Kelly: There you go.

[Cheers and applause]

Ryan: Now, you have performed with Florida Georgia Line?

>> Yeah, Florida Georgia Line, we're going out on tour, um, starting, uh, next week.

[All laugh]

Ryan: Those guys are great.

Kelly: Glad we could remind you.

>> Thank you, yeah. Yeah, thank you. Man, it's a great tour. It's the first time we were-- we were able to merge it in 2014, country and hip-hop together, and had an outstanding outcome, and we're doing it again this year.

Kelly: Mm. Now, do you have a jewelry box?

Ryan: We're distracted by this.

>> A jewelry box?

[Laughs] Not as big as yours.

I'm sure.

Kelly: No, no.

>> Yeah, yeah, no, yeah, okay.

Kelly: Mine is just a-- mine is just--I think that your ears look exhausted, and maybe we should switch earrings.

>> Well, okay. That's--that's fine. Whatever you want.

Kelly: Just to give your ears a little breathing room.

>> Yeah, why not?

Ryan: Because you have to have real lobes to carry those earrings.

>> You know what, that's why I lift--lift weights with my neck. You know what I'm saying?

Kelly: He had lobe implants.


Ryan: Nelly's new single, "Sounds Good to Me," available now. So good to see you, buddy.

Kelly: Ah, it's so good. Thank you for being here.

Ryan: Uh, let's see. This is from Kenny in New York. He says, "Received tickets to the Niagara Falls, Canada, show yesterday. Can't wait to see you, Ryan, and Gilman."

Gilman: Oh, Gilman.

Both: Gilman?

Ryan: "Gilman and the 'Live' family. I live 20 miles from the falls. Thank you, Kelly, for tickets. Want to shake your hand and hug you."

Kelly: Aw!

Ryan: So we'll see you there.

Gelman: A lot of people are waiting for their tickets.

Ryan: So some people are waiting for tickets, and others are getting them.

Kelly: I'm waiting with open arms. Hey, Lisa Bernstein from New York, New York, worked with Ryan on the first tv show he hosted, called "Wild Animal Games." His cohost was Eddie the chimp.

Ryan: It's true.

Kelly: So not much has changed for you.

Ryan: Well, you know, I-- this was the--yeah.

Kelly: Hey, look at you.

All: Aww!

Ryan: That was a-- it was a game show for The Family Channel, and families would come and compete with their kids, and we would do things like put icing on elephants, things like that.

Kelly: You remind me of Matt Damon in this picture.

Ryan: Well, it's a very blurry shot, that picture.

Kelly: Right? Like, in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" or--

Ryan: Yeah.

Kelly: Yeah, one of those.

Ryan: But Eddie the chimp was--you know, they made t-shirts afterwards because you try and cue the chimp and you couldn't cue the chimp, and they made t-shirts, and they said, "Cue the effing chimp."

Kelly: Yeah. Well, she actually said, "I'm so happy that he's working with somebody who's better behaved," so...

Ryan: Thank you so much. Thank you for following that. Let's see here. "Thank you for the 'Live with Kelly'"-- oho Antigua. "Anti-ga"?

>> Kelly "Anti-ga."

Ryan: "Anti-ga."

>> Kelly "Anti-ga."

Ryan: "We just returned from our vacation at the Verandah Resort & Spa. Absolutely wonderful time." And they sent a photo. Look at that happy couple romancing there on the ocean.

Kelly: Hey!


Ryan: We love--by the way, we love when we give away the trips and you send us your photos from taking the trip. That's so fun.

Kelly: We do, 'cause we don't actually believe that Gelman sends you the trips, so when you send us, it de-vilifies him in our eyes. So good for you, Gelman.

You actually are sending people on these trips.

Gelman: We've given away hundreds and hundreds of trips, yeah.

Kelly: Hundreds of trips.

Ryan: That Gelman.

Kelly: But we've only seen three photos. Anyway, Gwen Jess from Elkton, Kentucky, said, "Ryan, you need some Pals Socks. We adore them. This is a picture of my daughter with her earthworm and birdie socks and her dad with a werewolf and zombie.

They are soft and cushiony. Just wanted to share that with you." So...

Ryan: I'm not opposed to that. Not opposed to that.

Kelly: Ryan doesn't wear socks.

Ryan: Well, I think it just-- yes, I don't-- I do have socks on now, but it looks like I really don't wear socks because my feet don't touch the bottom of the floor.

If they touched the bottom of the floor, my pants would go down further and you'd see less ankle, which would be a better look.


And Robin--by the way, thank you, Robin, for being one of my people. She says, "Come on, no socks are sexy."

Gelman: Oh, yeah.

Kelly: Hey!


Ryan: But I think-- I don't think she means on me. I think she means on her husband.

Kelly: Marines, what would happen if you didn't wear socks? What would happen?

>> Drop.

Kelly: My gosh, yeah.

Ryan: Drop. Drop.

Kelly: Yeah, I mean, you-- suddenly, like, nobody's smiling. Everybody's like, "No, that's not even funny."

Ryan: Yup. [laughs]

We'll be back right after this. Hang on. Less than a minute.

Announcer: Closed captioning sponsored in part by:

Kelly: Hey, on tomorrow's show, Kal Penn will be here.

Ryan: Also Mike Tyson is with us.

Kelly: Have a great holiday weekend. And we're gonna go out taking a photo, all of us together, okay? Yes? All right.

Ryan: One more time, let's hear it for them.

[Cheers and applause]

Kelly: I'm gonna take a knee. Are we taking a knee?

Ryan: Yeah, let's get down.

I love having you here. One of my favorite things is coming up with new games to play with you, I have dropped you, I have spun you, I have dunked you, you keep coming back so I guess the only thing left to do is have one of you eaten alive.

You asked for it. Let's play one-eyed monster.

Ellen: Let's meet the monster, shall we?

>> Oh, my god, oh, my god.

Ellen: So scary. That's the one-eyed monster and he's going to eat one of you whole. The game is easya. So easy I will give you the answers. All the answers will be between zero and five.

If I ask you how many eyes does a one-eyed monster have the correct answer would be one but if you guessed four we would have to remove three teeth because you're three away, right?

One of those teeth is more sensitive. If you pull that tooth the one-eyed monster will eat you for lunch. Whoever survives gets a $2,500 bed, bath and beyond gift card.
