The guys got dressed up for Kirk's 40th.

Here are the highlights from Friday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A Maine nurse who returned to the United States after treating Ebola patients in West Africa was asked by the Maine government to follow the 21-day quarantine policy and stay inside her house. However, Kaci Hickox has refused to obey the quarantine request and took an hour-long bike ride with her boyfriend.

This came after Governor Paul LePage and his government tried to negotiate with Hickox’s lawyers.

Said Callahan: “I hear a lot of people defending her, ‘She has a right.’ Do you think they would like to sit down and have lunch with her? Do you think they would like to cuddle with her on the couch? No, of course not.”

The hosts then ran a clip of Hickox talking about how she did not believe in the quarantine because she didn’t have any symptoms of the virus.

“Just stay in your house and watch TV,” an annoyed Callahan said. “She’s self-serving.”

Replied Minihane: “She’s probably never seen ‘Breaking Bad’ or ‘House of Cards.’ Just watch four seasons.”

Said Callahan: “Here’s how we can get her to stay inside: ‘Hey, you’re all over the TV, honey. Stay inside and watch yourself, I know that’s your favorite TV show.’ Honest to God, just stay home, that’s all.”

— Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker told an emotional story about a New Bedford fisherman and his sons during a televised debate earlier this week. Although Baker cried while telling the tale, some in the New Bedford community have said they can’t figure out who the candidate is talking about.

Baker told the media that he might have gotten some of the details of the story wrong, but the “essence” of it is right.

“That sounds like every politician,” Callahan said. “Does that not sound like Joe Biden talking about that diner?”

Baker’s campaign manager said the candidate may have been mistaken, and that the fisherman wasn’t in fact from New Bedford and that his sons didn’t have athletic scholarships like Baker said.

“What part of the story is accurate?” said Dennis.

Asked Minihane: “Was he sweaty? Are we debating the sweat?”
