Kelly Ripa: [ overly chipper ] Good morning, everyone! Hiiiii!

Michael Strahan: [ stiff and serious ] It is such a NICE morning! It is just so, so GORGEOUS!

Kelly Ripa: It's been two weeks, and I just have to say: I LOVE my new co-host Michael Strahan! You're GREAT!! [ she smacks him on the arm ]

Michael Strahan: [ chuckling heartily ] I mean, I am SO happy to BE here! I just can't believe this is a JOB! You know, I woke up fifteen minutes ago and I'll be dead asleep again in 45 minutes! You know, it's like I'm living the life of a rich bear!

Kelly Ripa: I never sleep! One time I shut my eyes for a second and accidentally slept for a year-and-a-half! That's why I stopped blinking!

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] I LOVE this girl! Look how SMALL she is! I mean, we look like the poster for "Blind Side"!

Kelly Ripa: [ laughing ] Stop it!

Michael Strahan: So, Kelly, how was your weekend?

Kelly Ripa: You know, I took it easy -- I shot TWO washer-dryer commercials, packed my kids' school lunches for an entire school year, did 10,000 push-ups, and went to a gay raid with Anderson Cooper! How about you?

Michael Strahan: [ he shrugs ] Well... I mostly just sat around and busted through the elbows of all my sweaters!

Kelly Ripa: Oh, and don't forget you and I hung out!

Michael Strahan: Oh, that's right! I think we have a PICTURE!

[ reveal photo of giant Michael pointing to Kelly in a baby sling around his chest ]

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] That was so FUN! Although, you are suprisingly HEAVY!

Kelly Ripa: Yeah! I may look small, but I am DENSE as a moon rock! You know, when Andy cohen and I went to the Dead Sea, I sank right to the bottom! [ she shrugs ]

Michael Strahan: I mean, she is the STRONGEST tiniest person I ever met! You know, I just want to put her between my TEETH and carry her HOME!

Kelly Ripa: Quick, Michael! Favorite TV show -- on the count of three!

Together: "THE BACHELORETTE"!! [ they high-five one another ]

Michael Strahan: [ holding his hand ] Oh, my God, it's like slapping a piece of SHEETROCK!

Kelly Ripa: Okay, so we have some headlines to talk about! [ she holds up a newspaper with headline: "Emmy Fever" ] The EMMYS are this Sunday, and I just have to say: I'm EXCITED! [she puts the newspaper down ]

Michael Strahan: [ he grimaces ] Wha... wait. Is that all you're gonna say?

Kelly Ripa: Yes!

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] Oh, my GOD! This job is so EASY!!

Kelly Ripa: I know! I know!

Michael Strahan: I can't believe I got smashed in the head every day for FIFTEEN YEARS while THIS was a JOB!

Kelly Ripa: Right! Why did you do that? Alright, our first guest is the star of the "Twilight" franchise -- please welcome Robert Pattinson!

[ Pattinson gloomily steps out and sits beside his hosts ]

Robert Pattinson: Hello. Hello. Thank you for having me. As you can tell, I'm pretty excited to be here.

Kelly Ripa: Robert, a lot of reports are circulating that you and Kristen Stewart are finally back together.

Robert Pattinson: I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to talk about my movie -- "Cosmopolis."

Kelly Ripa: Oh, THAT reminds me: Later in the show, Bethany Frankel will be showing us som new Cosmo recipes!

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] Cosmo? That's AMAZING! At my last job, I had to wear a CUP!

Kelly Ripa: So, Robert... how are you handling all the media attention?

Robert Pattinson: Oh... some days, I'm like... [ he part his hair to one side ] Then other days, I'm like... [ he parts his hair back in the other direction ] And sometimes, I'm all... [ he bunches his hair up the middle ]

Kelly Ripa: You know, Robert... when I'm down in the dumps -- which has happened twice -- I hit the gym for soem light exercise. That's how I got these! [ she lifts her shirt to reveal washboard abs ]

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] I mean, look at us TOGETHER! We're like that thing in the news when elephants and dogs are FRIENDS!

Kelly Ripa: [ laughing ] That is so true! Oh! Robert! Where do you and Kristen see yourselves in... wait. Michael, what is he doing?

Michael Strahan: I don't know. I think he's brooding.

[ reveal Pattinson standing against the wall with a pouty face ]

Kelly Ripa: [ hyperventilating ] That is SEXY! Ladies, can you believe I get PAID to DO this?!

Michael Strahan: Hold, on, wait! We’re getting PAID, too?

Kelly Ripa: Yeah!

Michael Strahan: This just keeps getting BETTER! I mean, yesterday Mario Batali made me pasta, and all I had to say was: "Yummmmmmm!!"

Kelly Ripa: When we come back, a musical performance by me and Michael's favorite band...

Together: TRAIN!!!

Michael Strahan: [ laughing ] I'm gonna get in my P.J.'s!

Kelly Ripa: And...
