Dennis visits the Santa Monica home of writer and TV personality Greg Cope White to talk about Greg's new book, The Pink Marine, about the months he spent in basic training as a marine back in the day. Greg talks about the pressure to keep his gayness a secret, bonding with his fellow soldiers, his relationship to guns, sleeping with at least one and the unforgettable catchphrase that gives this episode its name. Greg talks about his blog Eat Greg Eat has led to appearances on the Food Network and why people on cooking shows always take "manageable bites." Other topics include: being a television writer in Hollywood, collecting art, keeping that hair bouncing and behaving, his lowest point professionally, getting blurbed by Christopher Atkins, and his long relationship with Norman Lear, who wrote the forward for Greg's book.
