Storyline

The comedy segment is "You Are the Author", in which audience members each submitted one sentence for a romance novel, to be pieced together for a narrative; the segment runs long and goes extremely well, with several submissions cracking up Johnny. Martin Short recalls his early years as a boy singer, and talks about his HBO special "I, Martin Short, Goes Hollywood"; a clip is shown. He and Johnny then trade impressions, with Short discussing the technique of doing different celebrities. He also recalls awkwardly meeting Katharine Hepburn. Cybill Shepherd talks about the end of "Moonlighting", the stress of working on the show, having competed in beauty contests when she was young, being the mother of twins, and going back to her hometown of Memphis, where she was initially rejected in her condo application. She also says she is still breastfeeding the twins, at 20 months. The Jeff Healey Band does not appear due to time limitations. Written by lenab9011
