It's strange, both Leno and Brown are from Massachusetts and their fathers know each other.
LENO: "I just talked to him back stage for about two seconds. You told me something amazing. Your dad was a frequent guest in our home. My dad hired your dad, and he was the new young insurance agent. Your dad would come to my house when I was a kid."
BROWN: "That's right. And apparently your folks named your dog 'Bruce' after my dad"
LENO: "That's right. I did have a collie named 'Bruce' after his dad. Well, say 'hi' to your father for me. Give him my best"
BROWN: "I sure will. I will, Jay. Thank you"
