Alison then jumps into the news with an Oscar Trivia quiz. After a few questions, they talk about Charlie Sheen’s recent radio show rant, and Adam wonders why a guy like that keeps remarrying.

The guys also rant about airport parking fees, and Adam hears more about Alonzo’s experiences working on planes at Lockheed for eight years.
