James Lipton ("Inside the Actor's Studio") was interviewed on Charlie Rose (replayed on 8/19/2004). Lipton always asks a series of questions of his guests, but never takes the questions himself. He and Rose asked each other the questionaire that includes the final question " if heaven exists, what would you like to hear god say when you arrive?"...he answered in french and then english "See Jim, you were wrong, I do exist".
During a 27-Dec-2002 Larry King interview:
KING: If heaven exists, what would you like to...
LIPTON: He [Bernard Pivot] said -- by the way, he said, if God exists, but if I felt for the American market I had to soften it a little.
KING: If heaven exists, what would you like to hear guards [God] say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
LIPTON: You see, Jim, you were wrong.
KING: Same thing!
LIPTON: I exist. But, Jim, you can come in anyway.
