Sesame Street: James Gandolfini Talks About Feeling Scared


ZOE: [HUMMING “SESAME
STREET” THEME] [CRASH] ZOE: Oh! What was that noise? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Hey,
Zoe, what’s wrong? ZOE: Oh, Mr. Gandolfini, I’m
so glad you’re here! I heard a loud noise and it
really, really scared me. JAMES GANDOLFINI: Don’t worry,
Zoe, everything’s OK. Come here. ZOE: Oh, thank you! I feel much better now. JAMES GANDOLFINI:
Good, I’m glad. Because I know what it’s
like to be scared. ZOE: You get scared? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah, sure. Everybody gets scared
sometimes. ZOE: Really? Well, what scares you? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Well,
there are three things that scare me, Zoe. ZOE: Don’t joke me. What three things scare you? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Well,
one thing I’m afraid of is the dark. I’ve always been afraid
of the dark. But luckily I have my nightlight
and my teddy bear, and they make me feel better. ZOE: Oh, that’s good. JAMES GANDOLFINI: Want to know
what else scares me? ZOE: Yeah, yeah what else? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Getting
a haircut. ZOE: Really? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah, I’m
afraid of haircuts. But luckily the barber gives me
a lollipop, and that makes me feel better. So you see, Zoe, sometimes
I get scared, too. ZOE: Yeah. But wait a minute. You said there were
three things that you were scared of. What else are you afraid of? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Giant
talking vegetables. ZOE: Giant talking vegetables? JAMES GANDOLFINI: But luckily
I’ve never seen one of those. BROCCOLI: Hey, excuse
me, watch it! Coming through here. Hey, oh-ay. ZOE: Are you OK? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah,
but that giant talking vegetable scared me. ZOE: Oh, well, don’t worry, Mr.
Gandolfini, I know what to do to make you feel better? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah, what? ZOE: This! Better? JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah. ZOE: Good. JAMES GANDOLFINI: Yeah. Thanks. ZOE: You’re welcome. JAMES GANDOLFINI:
Thanks a lot. [SIGH]
