      • Ann: And scientists are excited about a discovery along the Arizona / Utah border. They have found more than a thousand prehistoric animal tracks packed into a three-quarter acre site. It is so densely crowded with footprints, they're calling it a dinosaur dance floor. They also found a T-Rex album (Everyone laughs.) Some uh empty plastic beer cups. It is now 7:40; let's now go back to Meredith, Matt, and Al. (giggles)
        (Meredith, Matt, and Al applaud.)
        Al: Ann Curry everyone, Ann Curry.
        Matt: Wow, strong finish there, Ann.
        Al: Wow.
        Matt: Way to go.
        Meredith: Try to top that, Al.
        Al: Uh-unh.
        Meredith: That's a tough act to follow.
        Al: Nooo. As you've learned in comedy, and Ann has too, you leave a good line.
        Ann: Al Roker gets some credit for that one.
        Al: Anyway…
        Matt: Where's Bob Yeager?
        Al: Bob Yeager, our cameraman? That's the other rule of comedy. Don't give credit to him.
        Ann: I always give credit.
        Al: Unless it bombs.

      • Meredith: Coming up in the next hour we have a whole segment on sex after 50.
        (Matt and Meredith stare at each other briefly. Meredith cracks up while Ann pats Matt's back.)
        Ann: You need to watch that, don't ya, Matt?
        Meredith: Why'd you give me that look?
        Matt: By the way, we're all in that category, right?
        Meredith: And it means a lot of people are having it, but a lot of people are struggling, and they're not having it and (cracks up again) What are you looking at?
        Matt: Just listening to you.
        Ann: I'm interested; does it get better?
        Meredith: It can be better.
        Ann: Yes!
        Meredith: You have to communicate with your partner and be willing to try crazy stuff.
        Ann: Yes.
        Meredith: If that's what it takes.
        Matt: Crazy stuff?
        Meredith: Yeah, experiment. I don't know, exactly.
        Ann: Oh!
        Al: Suddenly I feel like I'm Joey Behar.

      • (The hosts talk about the upcoming sex after 50 segment.)
        Meredith: But the whole empty nest, when the kids leave, you think that you'd be getting more, but a lot of people that doesn't happen.
        Al: Yeah, but guess what? Some of us have small children still. So…
        Meredith: Well I'm going the other way. So I'm just saying, I would have assumed you'd have more but not necessarily.
        Matt: By the way, "getting more" makes it sound so romantic.
        (everyone laughs)
