"Well, I mean, if you come to a place where they don't have the proper kind of cooking equipment, you bring your own stuff."

Given David Letterman's recent, ahem, notoriety in the popular press, we couldn't resist showing you this 1987 clip with him and Julia Child. Julia was trying to make a hamburger but something apparently went wrong. So she improvises, to devastating effect, keeping Letterman's sarcasm at bay with a blowtorch and her natural wit.
