BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Harrison Ford is in this one.

JESSE WATTERS: Han Solo.

O'REILLY: It doesn't come out well for Harrison.

JESSE WATTERS: Well don't spoil it. You mean you don't know what happens.

O'REILLY: But it comes out worse for our friend Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia, because she doesn't look like Princess Leia.

WATTERS: That's not nice.

O'REILLY: No, I don't know what she really looks like, but -- you know -- they're heavily made up, these actors.

WATTERS: You're digging yourself a hole.

O'REILLY: Yeah, I'm sorry. I like Ms. Fisher by the way.
