CB 038:  John Lurie’s “Fishing With John,” Ep. 2, 1991.

John Lurie:  Well you don’t want to put [the fish] in the cooler, just … let’s leave him out.

Tom Waits:  Should I put him in my pants?  That’s what I’ve usually done in the past when I’ve been depressed.

Lurie:  Alright, put him in your pants.

Waits:  There was a time where I was very depressed, and it used to help … I’m just going to leave him right in here.

Narrator:  Oh my god.

Possibly the funniest thing to ever get a Criterion release.  God bless John Lurie.

    The entire Fishing with John series is on Youtube. Tom Waits in Jamaca is pure gold.
