Talking about the mountaineers Edmund Hillary and George Mallory:

Abhinandan: He’s the one who made that line famous, “Because it’s there.” Have you heard that line?

Rajyasree: It is why I also went mountaineering because it was there.

Abhinandan: This is Mallory’s line. I think it is the coolest line in history ever.

Rajyasree: Ever!

Abhinandan: I use it all the time. Why did you eat that ice cream? Because it’s there! Why did you eat that cake? Because it’s there!

Rajyasree: That’s why you have diabetes.

Abhinandan: That also because it’s there.

Rajyasree and Abhinandan burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of other stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen discuss the films Chintu Ka Birthday, Chippa and Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai; the child abuse helpline awareness video; the life and works of the filmmaker Basu Chatterjee; the second death anniversary of the chef Anthony Bourdain; and MAD magazine artist Al Jaffee’s retirement.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
