“Before, I made a joke at your expense, it was a short joke you’re right … not good enough by me, sorry about that,” Waleed said.
“No, that’s OK,” Steve replied. “I’ve been putting up with it my whole life.”
“I know, and I never make those jokes and I know you personally don’t actually care,” Waleed continued.
“But after you said it [was a short joke], yeah no that was pretty crap.”
“You didn’t need to say that, thank you,” Steve said.
“No, I think I probably did,” Waleed said.

Carrie is the only host to still remain from the show's original line up, which also included Dave Hughes and Charlie Pickering when it launched as The 7pm Project in 2009.
