Regis: Nice to have you here. Welcome.... Incidentally, speaking of Seinfeld, and who can stop? ... you were the 'moving' guy on the Seinfeld episode ...
Kathie Lee: Carl the Moving Guy.
R: Carl the Moving Guy. And Elaine fell in love with you. Right?
KL: Yes, but they broke up.
David James Elliott: Yeah, it was ill-fated.
KL: Like all of her love affairs.
R: Was that a good time for you?
DJE: I had a great time on that show. It was so nice.
R: Were you doing JAG at the time?
DJE: No. I was in negotiations.
R: So this gig came along ...
DJE: This gig came along and it was amazing. I filmed it on my birthday. It was really cool. I expected to be dealing with these incredibly huge egos but they were really really nice.
R: Yeah, that's great! ... Is Elaine a good kisser?
DJE: [laughs as Kathie Lee protests and the audience hoots]
R: Is Elaine a good kisser?
DJE: I think she is. Yes!
KL: He's a gentleman ...
DJE: Excuse me. My wife is here ...
KL: ... and would rather not answer such a question.
R: I thought I'd just ask. It's all in a day's work. Look what I gotta put up with! ... So how are you doing? Okay? JAG going great?
DJE: Yeah. It is.
KL: How long have you been on the air now?
DJE: Three years.
KL: This is quite a story ...
DJE: Yeah, we were on NBC originally. And then they kept moving us. They pre-empted us. They wouldn't say anything. And the show wouldn't die. And then after a full season on NBC, they cut us loose and CBS snapped us up immediately.
KL: And now you're beating NBC!
DJE: Yeah, we're in the Top 20. We're winning our timeslot.
R: Once in a while they let all the kinks get worked out during that first year of aggravation ...
DJE: Right. Exactly!
R: And the network gives up and the other one moves in. And they get a solid show.
KL: Perhaps would fill a programming need on a different network.
DJE: Well, you know what? It's more of a CBS show, really.
KL: The demographics ...
DJE: Yes. NBC is the sitcom network.
R: Well, you sure look good in your uniform.
DJE: Well ...God bless you!
[Regis points to a drawing Kathie Lee is holding]
R: Here's David's little girl, Stephanie, 5 years old ... a little drawing that she made of the family ...
KL: A little Picasso in the works ....
R: You think Cody is the only one who can draw?
KL: He can't draw very well.
R: Anyways ... let's take a look at this JAG... What does it stand for, JAG?
DJE: Judge Advocate General.
R: Of course. And that is the legal corps of the navy ...
DJE: Of the military, really.
R: And it prosecutes the law of the sea? And you're a Lieutenant-Commander? Right?
DJE: Yes sir.
R: Harm Rabb, Jr.! All right, fine!
KL: Gotta love a guy named Harm!
[showed a clip from To Russia With Love]
R: Did you really go?
DJE: Green screen Russia.
R: Ah ha! Okay!
KL: Hey, looks like Russia, okay?
R: Congratulations on staying with the show and making it into a hit.
DJE: Thank you.
