My dream scenario in attending the "Dr. Phil" show was that he would, during commercial breaks, drop his panhandle twang and start talking like Bennett Cerf, or he would f-bomb a stagehand for eating the last doughnut, or that he'd cop a feel from one of his guests because, all other things being equal, if you had never laid eyes on him before, you would figure Dr. Phil for a groper. Off-camera revelations are the secret hope of everyone who stands in line for a TV show taping.
