Dorothy Mengering (DM) and Bryn Mooth (BM)
DM: When David was on “Late Night,” a lot of times he would call me on the telephone, on the show.
BM: Mm hm, on the show.
DM: We were in Seattle one morning and the phone rang. And it was Maria from the “Late” show. “Will you be by a phone so we can call you when the show is taped this afternoon?” So I said, “Okay, we’ll find one.”
So we drove down the highway, and there were phones at the roadside parks but the traffic was too heavy. [Laughs]
DM: So then we went to, uh, Comfort Inn, across the highway and asked if we could use her phone. I tried to explain to her…she wasn’t real sure about that. So we said, “Well, can we rent a room for an hour?”
DM: And she looked at us kind of funny. So then, it all worked.
BM: Oh, that’s funny.
DM: I talked to David on the lobby phone.
BM: That’s so funny.
DM: And then of course, there was Norway.
BM: What was that like?
DM: It was a wonderful experience. Loved it.
BM: You interviewed Hillary Clinton, didn’t you?
DM: Yes, I did. [laughs]
DM: [laughs] Oh my gosh. I’d never done anything like that before.
BM: How nervous were you?
DM: After we got started, she really put me at ease.
BM: Mm hm.
DM: So it worked pretty well, I think.
BM: And then you went to Nagano?
DM: Mm hm.
BM: Was that four years later?
DM: Yes. They said, “Well, you can go and maybe do three or four segments.” And I thought, “Well, why spend the money if I’m only going to do that much?”
BM: Mm hm.
DM: So it was on every night, from Nagano. [laughs]
DM: So…those experiences just have been wonderful.
BM: So the girl from Linton, Indiana had a big world experience that you never would have imagined.
DM: Never dreamed.
