[ # ] Henry Winkler and William Shatner’s memorable moments from Better Late Than Never
September 6th, 2016 under Better Late Than Never, Henry Winkler, NBC, William Shatner


William Shatner and Henry Winkler along with Jeff Dye, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman spent a month traveling in The Orient visiting 6 cities and they made memories that will stay with them for a lifetime. Tonight at 10p on NBC, they go to South Korea on Better Late Than Never and they almost cause an International incident. Thankfully, they didn’t or we would’ve heard it by now and they wouldn’t be with us to talk about the best show to grace our televisions since The Shat did a little show called Star Trek 50 years ago this week.
While Jeff Dye dropping his phone on the North Korean side of the border was pretty memorable for all of them, The Fonz had another unforgettable memory from that country. When Winkler was in Seoul he got to try one of their delicacies. He revealed to us what it was at a press day for the show, “I realized I was asked to pull an octopus out of a tank. That personal octopus sat and wrapped itself around my wrist and hand. A woman said, ‘Oh, very good.'” Then he added, “I ate it; wiggling, raw. And I didn’t and it’s so interesting. You put the tentacle in your mouth. Umm, good. You have to pull it, because it sticks to the inside of your cheek. But it actually was not bad.”
From tentacles to trunks, he had experience that will remain one of his all-time favorite memories. In Chiang Mai, he made a friend he will never forget. He detailed that meeting as, “I met an elephant. And I’m telling you, this 15,000 pound elephant looked me in the eye, and I looked the elephant in the eye, and I started crying. You felt the dearness.” So much so, “I have a picture on my phone in my house, in everywhere. You see the elephant leaning into me when I’m standing next to him, like he was a puppy. I’m telling you. And this is not hyperbole. It came out of him like a river, this emotion. It was one of the great moments, outside of my children, grandchildren and family.”
Talking about children, Captain Kirk had a run with a kid that reminded him of his Rescue 911 days. The time that stuck with and will forever stay with him is when, “It was a kid. We had a water fight with colored water, and the water was taken out of cesspools that there were a lot of cesspools around and they were fired at us. And during this fight I had my mouth open, and this kid shot this long arc of water into my mouth.” Then he added, “I’ve never forgotten that child since. That child’s face is emblazoned in my mind. I’ll never forget that kid.” Which could be why he told me that if Better Late Than Never was picked up for a second season, he will not going along with them. Winkler on the other is packed and ready to go.
One more thing that both men will never forget is the month that they traveled to Tokyo, Kyoto, Hong Kong, Seoul, Bangkok and Chang Mai together.
