The Martin Short Show
by Martin Short (November 4, 1999)
MARTIN: When Gillian came to our house, my daughter's the
biggest X-Files fan, she had her bedroom covered with posters.
And you sweetly went up and signed David Duchovny's name. Which
I thought that was nice.
MARTIN: (Gillian laughs) I actually drew a mustache
on David Duchovny.
MARTIN: Did you two ever have sexual tension?
GILLIAN: Do you mean in person or on the show?
MARTIN: No, no, no not in person, yeah, in person. You were
both single at one point, weren't you, working together.
GILLIAN: Yeah, I guess so...
MARTIN: He's a good looking lad, as we say, in Canada.
GILLIAN: He's a very good looking lad.
MARTIN: ... and you're quite the looker.
GILLIAN: I think that everybody has sexual tension with David.
MARTIN: My question wasn't about everybody, my question was
GILLIAN: (Gillian giggles) Well, yeah, I think you
just automatically do with him. He exudes ... sexuality.
MARTIN: Wow. (audience screams)
GILLIAN: It's true.
MARTIN: Did you ever have a date?
GILLIAN: Did we ever have a date? No, we had a few meals
together. But I don't think they were ever dates.
MARTIN: So it never got to the point of that. Well it is
weird when you're working together.
GILLIAN: It is.
MARTIN: You were on location in Vancouver, which is usually...
GILLIAN: Yeah, and I was in a relationship at the time. And
you know, we had pasta together.
MARTIN: Yeah, that's it?
GILLIAN: Uh huh.
MARTIN: Yeah. Now you moved your show to Los Angeles Cal,
of course you're not on location, so there's not that temptation
GILLIAN: Riiight. I guess. No, I mean, he's married, he has
a child, we're friends, we've got seven years...
MARTIN: Not now, I don't mean now. You have a little daughter,
he has a little daughter...
MARTIN: I'm talking about at the beginning?
GILLIAN: At the beginning...well at the beginning we weren't
MARTIN: I know.
