Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (HBO Documentary Films)
(UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING) CARRIE:Mother and I lived
next door to each other.Mommy, mommy, I’m home. -DEBBIE: Hello!
-CARRIE: You cannot keep
that phone. That’s from when they first
invented cellphones. -It works fine.
-CARRIE: It’s ridiculous. Just dandy. CARRIE:I have to go
and start rehearsalsforStar Wars Seven… ty-two.CARRIE:I’m concerned because
my mother is not feeling well.-CARRIE:Is this for the show?
-DEBBIE:I forgot I had it.That’s what’s good about
losing your memory is there’s so many surprises. It’s like the old days in a way,
but I’m like the old days, so. (LAUGHS) My family in particular
could overwhelm most people.It wasn’t just my mother
that was super famous.My dad was a world class singer.They were the couple of America.
One heck of a marketing tool.CARRIE:My mother,
she’ll forget. She’s not 35.Age is horrible for all of us,but she falls from
a greater height. DEBBIE:Manic-depressive
is a disease.That was not diagnosed then.So nobody kind of knew
what was going on with Carrie. CARRIE:I went too fast,
I was too much.I couldn’t handle it.That’s it. That’s all. CARRIE: Okay, look– Turn around this way,
because your rear end is to the camera. CARRIE:I’m my mom’s
best friend.I share everything
with my daughter. Not quite. Especially the check. Far more than I ever
would want to, I know what my mother
feels and wants. Just do what your mother says,
it makes life easier. As if. There’s a lot of it.
