– A New York City doctor who treated on Ebola patients in West Africa returned to the United States and tested positive for the virus. Dr. Craig Spencer is the fourth person in the U.S. to be diagnosed with Ebola. Once doctors realized Spencer had Ebola, he was quarantined at Bellevue Hospital.

“It’s frightening,” said Callahan. “You don’€™t agree that this is frightening? This idiot comes back from Africa when he was treating Ebola patients, and instead of just laying low for a while, decides to take the subway to the bowling alley.”

Continued Callahan: “First of all, what self-respecting physician bowls?”

Replied Minihane: “I wouldn’t mind bowling a little bit more — it’€™s fun.”

“Would you be happy if your doctor was giving you a checkup, looking at his watch saying, ‘I’m going to leave,’?” said Callahan. ‘€œShouldn’t this doctor be arrested? Quarantined, arrested and charged.”

Said Minihane: “I think if you go West Africa, that’€™s great. You want to treat these people, that’€™s wonderful. If you do come back, you can’€™t come out for like two months.”

– Former Boston mayor Thomas Menino stopped his chemotherapy treatment and suspended his book tour during his battle with cancer. Menino said he wants to spend time with his family during the difficult time.

Said Dennis: “It doesn’t sound good. Good luck to him.”

Replied Callahan: “He wants to spend more time with his family, and God bless him, I’€™m sure he will, do you think he wishes he did that earlier? Because he worked 20 years, seven days a week, 24/7. Do you think there’€™s that regret saying, ‘Why didn’t I do this?’ ”

“I think he enjoyed what he did,” said Dennis. “I think he enjoyed running the city.”

– Zach Galifianakis for the past few years has hosted a parody talk show called “Between Two Ferns,” interviewing people ranging from President Barack Obama to actress Jennifer Lawrence. On his newest episode, he held an awkward interview with actor Brad Pitt.

Minihane ran a sound clip of the odd interview and while he enjoyed it, the other hosts did not think it was as funny.

“I guess Brad Pitt didn’t really have much to say, but he played along and he got annoyed,” said Callahan.

“You play like you’€™re annoyed,” replied Minihane. “Some people thought it was real.”

Asked Callahan: “Is that the trick for this show? Some people think it’€™s real?”

“Sounds like Brad wasn’t buying it,” Callahan said.

Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– A nun who won the Italian version of “The Voice” released her debut album, and it includes a remake of Madonna’s 1984 hit “Like a Virgin.”

Sister Cristina Scuccia, a 26-year-old from Sicily, has received some criticism from the Catholic media, although she claims she interpreted it as “a song about the ability of love to renew people, to redeem them from their past.”

“Out of all the songs, would this be the one?” Fauria wondered, adding: “So, run out and buy that and see if your priest thinks it’s OK.”

– On the heels of his memorable prank phone call to a Buffalo radio station last week, Fauria tried calling a Chicago station for Part 2 of “Christian from Foxboro.” Unlike last week, when he appeared on air for about 10 minutes (over two segments), this time Fauria was not as well-received, as he was cut off after complaining that he was on hold for too long and that the hosts were putting him to sleep.

Two more attempts to get back on the air ended in failure.

“So when you said [they] were putting [you] to sleep, they wanted to hang up because they didn’t want their listeners to think that they were really putting people to sleep?” Merloni asked.

“A little sensitive,” Benz noted.

“They did not want to play around,” Fauria said.

Added Benz: “When you first called the station did you notice that you sounded like a bizarre combination of Danny Picard and ‘Lou from Chicago.’ It’s amazing how you hybrid yourself like that.”

Said Fauria: “I can’t help it.”

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.

– According to the Boston Herald, Massachusetts State Police are stepping up their patrols in “key locations” after a 24-year-old Canadian soldier was gunned down in Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday. The gunman — 32-year-old, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau — an ex-convict, was dressed in all black when he shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at point blank range at the National War Memorial.

“€œThey were locked down for all of the day, right?” Dennis asked. “They went office-to-office-to-office.”

The shooting postponed the Maple Leafs-Senators game, which was scheduled for last night.

“€œ[The Maple Leafs and Senators], they were looking out their windows watching all this go down,” Callahan said. “They weren’€™t allowed to leave and they didn’€™t get to play. They were like giving play-by-play on Twitter.”

– To remember the life of James Carver — a native of Springfield, Missouri — his cremated remains will be launched skyward as part of his family’€™s goodbye in a fireworks display. Greenlawn Funeral Homes director Jim Carver said his dad loved watching fireworks and would appreciate the unusual send off. The family will have a cookout and a memorial celebration following the fireworks.

“So Uncle James’ ashes are going to be on people?” Dennis asked.

Replied Callahan: “Ashes are going to fall down on the burgers as they cook them on the grill.”

– Raphael Ravenscroft, who had a solo on the saxophone in Gerry Rafferty’s hit “Baker Street,” died Sunday at the age of 60. He reportedly only received a flat fee of $43 for the song.

“Not a great song I would say,” remarked Callahan.

He added: “It reminds me of when I was in school and the FM-converter in my car was one station and it came on and I couldn’t change it.”
