Eddie: “I don’t plan on cursing…”
Ellen: “I know you don’t plan on it.”
Eddie:  “I’m not going to you know , when I get to the Oscars I’m going to say s***. Then I’m going to say other things. I don’t have any plan to but every now and then a curse may slip out. Like just now I said ‘s***’ on your show.”
Ellen: “You did, that’s twice now.”

Ellen: “How do you cut out peeing on yourself?”
Eddie: If it’s on a delay you could cut, cut close and you realize I’m peeing…This is Hollywood, you know.”
Ellen: “The fact that you’re worried about peeing on yourself makes me nervous for you.”

Eddie on “SNL”:

Ellen: “What was it? You said, it’s cool now.  What was it that you didn’t go back?”
Eddie: “It was couple….Over the years…they did little s*** stuff where I was like, hey, f*** y’all. I’m not trippin. It was years ago. I don’t have any bad blood with that show. And that show is such a big part of my past. I love being part of it. Yeah, I wanna go back.
