The Monologue from this show sets up the shows that we picked from the trip back to New York so well we had to include it. Due to the limitation of space on DVDs we weren't able to put the shows in chronological order. However, for Volumes 11 and Volumes 12, we highly recommend that you watch these shows in the order they aired. Meaning, watch this bonus segment first, then Show 1, the bonus segment from Volume 12, followed by Show 2. You'll get it once you get the DVDs. Enjoy!
Approximate Running Time: 178 minutes
