      • Bill Scheft: (interrupting Letterman's gag about LL Bean electric underwear) That's enough, Dave. Dave. That's enough. That's enough, Dave. Thanks a lot. Thanks a lot. Hi. I'm Late Night Show Strike Captain, Bill Scheft. Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to show you the conclusion of this show. Why? Well, it's to remind you that even though the Late Show writers are back at work, the WGA strike still goes on. Thousands of writers still walk the picket-line everyday until their legs cramp and their backs ache, only to return to a home they can now barely afford because of the producers' greed. So, to the arrogant media moguls, who have gotten so fat off of our sweat-soaked toil that they can no longer fit behind their oversized mahogany desks, I say to you, "Stop spending all your money on cufflinks, cocktails, and whores. Stick a crowbar in your wallet, and start bargaining in good faith with the writers." Maybe then America won't be denied the joy of seeing David Letterman hold up a pair of flaming underpants. Isn't that right, Dave?
        David Letterman: It is right, Bill. Nice job.
        Announcer: (a WGA strike sign is displayed) This message has been brought to you by the Writers Guild of America. Back to you, Dave.
