Ellen: "I would think that there's got to be more than a 10-second delay with you. There's got to be ... I mean you're going to curse, aren't you?"
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."
Eddie: "...I'm not planning on it but who knows. But the Oscars is (on) a delay isn't it?"
Ellen: "Yeah, guess they put a delay on it just in case."
Eddie: "If I were to come out on the Oscars in a sky blue tux and pee on myself. They wouldn't show that, would they? They would cut it out."
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: "Is there something going on that you have not been back for a while on 'SNL'? Will you go back and host?"
Eddie: "Not anymore. Now, I'm cool. I would go back if it was the right stuff, situation. Sure. Yeah, I tell you, I'm doing lots of stuff now. I'm hosting the Oscars. I'll go back to 'SNL.'
Ellen: "You should definitely host it."
Eddie: "It's been 25 years since I've been back there."
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.
