In a recent episode of the talk show, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,” Conan O’Brien, along with his co-host Matt Gourley and producer Sona Movsesian, found themselves in different locations, connected via Zoom. While Conan was in New York City promoting his new show, “Conan O’Brien Must Go,” Matt was in Pasadena, California, dealing with an unexpected visitor in his office.

As Matt was clearing out his office for a garage conversion, he discovered a live rat hiding in the built-in storage benches. Clearly flustered, Matt described the rat as an invader and not a pet. He had no traps and didn’t know what to do. Sona, on the other hand, was amused by the situation, joking about Matt shooting the car when it broke down on his way to Altadena, where he lives.

As the conversation continued, it was revealed that the rat had turned Matt’s podcast notes into a nest. This prompted Conan to make a funny segue about the importance of having a strong network connection, leading to a humorous T-Mobile advertisement plug.

Concerned listeners chiming in worried about the fate of the rat, Conan and the team discussed possible solutions. Matt had already ordered smart rat traps that would alert his phone when the rat was caught. However, Conan suggested catching and releasing the rat in Altadena, away from Matt’s Pasadena home. He didn’t believe the rat would make its way back, joking about the rat hitchhiking or trying to board an airplane.

The conversation took a lighthearted turn when Conan and the team proposed making the rat the podcast’s mascot, even designing a flag with the rat sitting on a little rat love seat. While Matt remained skeptical and stressed about the situation, Conan attempted to lighten the mood with jokes.

Despite the rat’s unwelcome presence, the team managed to introduce their guest for the episode, although Matt’s lack of enthusiasm and his stressed tone caught Conan and Sona’s attention. Both of them noticed that Matt seemed more on edge than usual, attributing it to the overwhelming rat situation.

Overall, this episode of “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” was filled with humor, banter, and unexpected challenges caused by Matt’s unexpected guest. Listeners were left eagerly awaiting future episodes, hoping for an update on the rat and whether it would officially become the show’s mascot.

Whether it’s Conan’s witty remarks, Matt’s rat troubles, or the entertaining dynamic between the hosts, “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” continues to provide viewers with lively and humorous conversations, ensuring laughter and entertainment for all.
