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?”

Here are the highlights from Thursday’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.

— During Monday’s debate between Massachusetts gubernatorial candidates Charlie Baker and Martha Coakley, Baker relayed a story about an encounter with a local fisherman while on the campaign trail. Baker began to cry when telling the story — recalling a time when the fisherman told him he prevented his sons from using their athletic football scholarships, instead insisting they become fishermen.

The question has now been raised whether or not the story actually happened.

“I think Baker made it up completely,” Minihane said.

“I don’t,” Callahan replied. “I think there is some truth to it. Some guy who’s kid was a football player — wasn’t two kids or two brothers, they weren’t spectacular, there wasn’t any Division 1 scholarships — but there was a kid that wanted to go to college and play football and the father told Baker that he said, ‘No, you’re going to be a fisherman.’ That part I believe. The rest he exaggerates and makes up.”

Added Dennis: “I don’t think Charlie is dumb enough to fabricate something out of whole cloth that did not have some grain of truth in it. I think perhaps what Gerry was saying is true, he met a fisherman and said I made my kids do this and I didn’t want to do this and whether the fisherman exaggerated or embellished or whether Charlie did, I don’t think Charlie is a stupid guy at all. He’s a very smart guy.”

— While speaking to a crowd on the two-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, a protester challenged New Jersey governor Chris Christie, criticizing his administration’s handling of the rebuilding of homes and businesses. Christie told the man to, “Sit down and shut up.”

He continued to challenge the man: “I’ve been here when the cameras aren’t here, buddy, and done the work. … Turn around, get your fifteen minutes of fame, and then, maybe, take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves, and do something for the people of this state.”

Callahan isn’t too fond of Christie.

“You’re supposed to be there without cameras, you fraud,” said Callahan. “I want that fat load to run just so I can watch him get taken apart, piece by piece and that is a lot of pieces.”
