Jon Stewart: This is what's interesting about this movie (The Invention of Lying). You were insulted in almost every frame. People are saying the rudest things to you. I was thinking to myself, I was watching the movie and I'm thinking, "My god, who wrote this?" And, uh, uh, it was, it was you.
Ricky Gervais: Well, uh yeah. I think I insult myself to get it out there before anyone else can.
Jon Stewart: Sneak it in.
Ricky Gervais: Exactly, yeah. It pulls the rug from underneath them. No, uhm, I, I think I like being insulted, that's funny. That's why I come on this show.
Jon Stewart: This show just by its very nature insults your status in show business.
Ricky Gervais: Exactly.
Jon Stewart: It shows you're trolling.
Ricky Gervais: I think a comedian should be the butt of the jokes. Now your problem is, you're just too handsome.
Jon Stewart: Oh stop it... (takes Ricky's hand bashfully, then Ricky puts his second hand over their held hands).
I knew we would get there at some point.
Ricky Gervais:Lights out!
