Storyline

Inspired by the trivia book "The Emperor Who Ate the Bible" by Scot Morris, Johnny reads his own list of trivia facts; many of the items are groan-inducing, and Johnny is playfully combative with the audience. Miko Hughes, "two sleeps" away from turning 5, comments on making "Kindergarten Cop" with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who he saw in the studio hallway earlier in the day. He talks about visiting the Magic Castle, and Johnny shows him a magic trick with an invisible change purse; Hughes then tells several "knock knock" jokes. David Brenner performs stand-up, talking about his 20-year anniversary appearance on the show, and then is interviewed briefly. Roger Rees, now playing Robin on "Cheers", talks about moving with his Yorkshire Terrier to Los Angeles. He comments on his mother's mangling of common phrases, recalling that she advised him to avoid the "raft of God." He also discusses his role in the upcoming movie "If Looks Could Kill".
