Here are the highlights from Monday’€™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.

– Four months before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, three people at Logan Airport caught the al-Qaeda hijackers videotaping security checkpoints at the airport, according to a New York Post report. The eyewitnesses reported the suspicious actions to officials at Logan, but security did nothing to question the potential terrorists.

“It was a different time,” Callahan said. ‘€œDon’€™t you think?”

Said Minihane: “No one ever imagined that you could kill 3,000 people with a box cutter.”

– “Gone Girl,” which stars Ben Affleck, was the No. 1 movie at the box office this weekend, taking in $38 million. Despite the acclaim, Minihane said he wasn’t a fan of the flick.

“The ending was absolutely terrible, awful,” Minihane said. “One of the worst endings I’ve ever seen in a movie.”

“What do you give it, grade?” asked Dennis.

“C-plus,” replied Minihane. “And it’€™s too bad because I’€™m a great admirer of David Fincher, the director of the film. He couldn’t save it. It didn’t work.”

– Comedian Sarah Silverman hosted “Saturday Night Live,” a show for which she once was a cast member. While the hosts admitted the opening monologue usually is not funny, Silverman’€™s took unfunny to another level.

“New heights of disappointment,” Callahan said.

Continued Callahan: “But Sarah Silverman does the monologue, and I’€™m thinking, ‘€˜This is going to be good. Not only will it be good, but it’€™ll be dangerous.’€™ Tomorrow we’€™d be talking about she’€™s in trouble. Network censors are in trouble. She bombed like I’ve never seen anyone bomb before.”

“Not a good start to the year, two episodes in,” Minihane said.

– The Coast Guard rescued a man off the coast of Florida who attempted to run from the U.S. to Bermuda. Reza Baluchi tried to run on water in a “hydro pod” to raise money for children in need, but he got tired and signaled for help.

“He failed, failed at his mission,” Callahan said. “€œI want to see him run through occupied Iraq or Yemen.”

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

– A 19-year old Boston University with no driver’s license drove his Maserati close to 100 mph and ran a red light on the rainy streets in the Back Bay near at an intersection where two people were killed earlier this year, police said. Zeguang Xu, 19, pleaded not guilty to operating without a license, providing a false name to police, speeding, failure to stop and negligent operation.

“He thinks it’s OK to go 100?” Callahan asked. “He owns a Maserati? I hate this.”

Replied Dennis: “Daddy put it on the platinum card.”

Said Callahan: “So this punk, he’s 19. I hate his father even more than I hate him. It’s one thing to buy your kid a car, can you imagine buying your kid a Maserati?”

“It’s one of these things where it’s inevitable, you buy a kid a car like this, dumb kid like this is going to die,” Minihane said.

– The movie “Gone Girl” that stars Ben Affleck and is directed by David Fincher opens up in theaters Friday. Affleck has a scene in the movie where he is briefly nude.

The hosts ran a clip of Affleck discussing the compromising part in the movie.

“He just admitted he has warts,” Callahan said surprisingly.

“Genital warts,” replied Dennis.

Said Callahan: “He didn’t say genital, that’s implied.”

– An NBC cameraman working in Liberia tested positive for Ebola, the network reported. Ashoka Mukpo will return to the United States for treatment. He is fourth American person believed to have contracted the disease while in Liberia.

“Oh, good,” Callahan said sarcastically. “Let’s get as many people back here who have Ebola.”

Said Minihane: “We are all going to have Ebola within that same three weeks.”

Asked Callahan: “Why do we let any flight from Liberia get anywhere near our shores?”
