Pam Grier: I keep getting these stickers from the post office saying they've got an envelope from L.A. with 44 cents due.
David Letterman: Well, who hasn’t?
Grier: I can’t say. I really want to, but I’m afraid.
Letterman: You can’t do a monologue.
Grier: No. Too many brushstrokes.
Letterman: But now that the consequences have disappeared, yeah, what do I care?
Grier: You can feel the tension. You become something else.
Letterman: And we tried, and we couldn’t. Because it’s 11:30, and people are just looking for a pleasant experience.
Grier: And you can hear the silence over the phone.
Letterman: It just depends on the number of bridges I’ve burned.
Grier: I dated Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and I was converting to Islam, and yes, Islam is monolithic, however there are fundamentalists, moderates, conservatives, and the very free.
Letterman: Yeah. I might have used that to my own disadvantage, sometimes.
Grier: Projecting something, that's unrealistic, like projecting the stock market.
Letterman: If things aren’t going well, that’s fine, too.
Grier: It’s subjective. It’s complex. But it was just wonderful.
Letterman: It makes me feel good.
Grier: I’ll never recover from this.
Letterman: You go back to your parents’ house, and they still have the rotary phone.
