You can't totally rebel, otherwise you have to go live on your own, on a desert island. It's as simple as that.

We just did a show in Providence, Rhode Island, and we got three puppy shots before we even got on the air, which was great. Although sometimes you get flashed by some puppies that you'd rather not see. They're more like mongrels.
