"Holy moly! Whoa...Wow! You were remarkably composed," blurted out Letterman in amazement. "I swear to God when he jumped on me, all I was gonna do was let him eat me. There was not one part of me that was gonna fight back. Alright, this is how I'm done," Sandler said, in his usual deadpan type of humor.
