Trivia:

When Leary guested on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009), he confessed that he was terrified of bats. Coincidentally, the show concluded with an animal expert who presented Conan with a variety of bats that were conveniently suspended behind Leary on studio "tree branches". See more »
