RP: ...Here's another big hit, Captain Janeway on
Star Trek's Voyager. Come on, she's about to meet up with the Borg.
KL: Another spice girl.
RP: Yes. Kate Mulgrew, everybody.
[Theme plays as Kate
enters and shakes Regis' hand]
RP: Hi, Kate. Nice to see you again.
[Kate & Kathie Lee hug]
KL: You were so great when you sat in for me.
Kate: You think so?
KL: I thought you were fabulous. I thought if that
woman gets off that starship, I'm in trouble because you were so, so good.
Kate: Thank you.
RP: Kathie's talking about that last time Kate was
here, you were co-hosting for Kathie Lee when she was on vacation.
Kate: I was, indeed.
RP: And we had quite an event here.
Kate: I approached the bench with trepidation. It's nothing but
trouble in this studio. Who have you got lurking behind there? [indicating backstage]
RP: Anyway, out comes Michael Nouri, tall and
KL: And very 'Nehru'...
RP: And ya know, when I sit between two people and
I feel the ions going back and forth.
Kate: Ions! Ions!
RP: Yes. There was electricity going on...
RP: ...devouring each other with their eyes.
Kate: It was pretty amazing. He followed me over
the Rosie O'Donnell.
[clip from 3/97 co-host show]
Kate: First of all, you're very big. How tall are you?
Michael Nouri: 6' 3"
Kate: Oh, that's
wonderful. [catches herself, looks embarrassed]
[laughter in audience & on stage]
Regis: You're not married, are you, Michael?
Nouri: Not at the moment.
Kate: You're not? How many.....Have you been... [starts to stammer]
Nouri: Yes, I have.
Regis: I guess she answered that question.
Nouri: Are you, Kate?
Kate: Am I married?
Kate: Not at the moment [laughing]
[Laughter and audience applause]
[end of clip]
RP: Oh, yeah. And then you left together and went over to Rosie's show.
Kate: We had fun, but that was dangerous.
RP: You are very happy with the gentleman friend
out there in California?
Kate: I am happy with him, yes, thank you.
KL: Things could change.
Kate: Kathie Lee....
KL: Kidding. Just kidding. Oy.
Kate: But I had a ball. You look marvelous.
KL: Thank you.
Kate: .. I was sitting back there watching you. You
look so pretty.
RP: Do I look John Forsythe?
[audience laughter] [all talking at once]
RP: Remember 'Din'-asty?
KL: If you were a spice, Kate Mulgrew, what spice
would you be?
Kate: What spice would I be?
RP: Oh, [it'd] be the spiciest spice...
Kate: Vanilla was on the tip of my tongue...
R & KL: No, you're not vanilla.
Kate: It's not vanilla, is it?
RP: Tutti-frutti maybe, but not vanilla.
Kate: It certainly isn't Tutti-frutti. What would
RP: Me? Vanilla.
Kate: I know what I'd be.
R & KL: What?
RP: Ooo, Saffron.
Kate: Exotic, very rare, extremely expensive, shall
I go on?
KL: High maintenance spice.
RP: Congratulations on your cover...
Kate: Thank you.
RP: ...this looks like a biggie coming up for uh...
Kate: Thank you. This is a *great* season finale.
RP: Is it really?
Kate: I must say, I saw a rough cut the other day
and I am very pleased.
RP: The Borg.
Kate: Who are the.... you ready? Regis, who are the
RP: The Borgs are alien space aliens from an alien
planet. Everybody's an alien up there.
Kate: What is so frightening about the Borg?
RP: They got one eye in lipstick on their forehead.
Kate: Uh-huh. He knows a great deal about the Borg.
RP: No, I don't know. What is...
Kate: The Borg are the most terrifying species in
the Delta Quadrant.
RP: Why? I've always loved them, why?
Kate: Because they have no humanity, they have no
conscience, and they are without mercy.
KL: Oh, you mean they work for the press.
[laughs, whistles & applause]
KL: A little joke. [winks] Just a little joke. [to
Kate] You bring out the worst in me, honey.
RP: So this big finale is coming up.
Kate: Yes, next Wednesday.
RP: All right, let's take a look. Now here's
Captain Janeway reacting to a close call with the Borg
[clip from 'Scorpion' part 1]
Janeway: Did we sustain any damage?
Harry: No, shields held. Warp engines are coming back online. All primary
systems are stable.
Janeway: Stand down red alert. Harry, maintain a long range sensor lock on
that Borg armada. They seemed to be in quite a hurry, didn't they? I'd like to know what
they're up to.
Harry: Yes, ma'am.
Janeway: I'll take this near miss as a good omen. Resume our course, Mr.
Chakotay: If we needed any more evidence that we've entered Borg space, I
think we just got it.
Janeway: I'll be in my ready room.
[end of clip]
KL: What's gonna happen?
RP: I can't stand it! My money's on Captain
Kate: Is it?
KL: It's in your contract, you're coming back next
Kate: I don't know.
RP: We don't care how tough the Borgs are.
Kate: Commander Chakotay and I...it's going to be
RP: No kidding.
Kate: I end up... I'm gonna say this, and no more
because I think it's wrong to sort of give too much away...
KL: Yeah, don't spoil it, right.
Kate: I end up on the Borg cube, separated from the
Kate: That's the season finale.
KL: And we don't know what's g-....
Kate: I'm alone in the hive.
RP: Oh my G-...
Kate: Do you know what the hive is, Regis?
RP: The hive is, uh...
Kate: Where the bees are.
RP: The bees!
Kate: Very good.
[audience laughter & applause]
RP: Let me just ask you one thing. What are you
doing up there and when are you coming home?
[Kate & KL laugh]
RP: They up there, they're zooming, they're going, where are you going?
Kate: A lot of problems are gonna happen in the
Delta Quadrant, it's unending.
RP: All right, it looks like a big finale coming
Kate: Three more years a least.
KL: Good for you.
RP: Thanks, Kate.
Kate: Thank you.
