    This is a RUSH transcript from "The O'Reilly Factor," October 2, 2013. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

    Watch "The O'Reilly Factor" weeknights at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET!

    O'REILLY: Thanks for staying with us. I'm Bill O'Reilly. In the "Miller Time" segment tonight, we have three hot topics for you, beginning with the shutdown of the two Hillary Clinton movies.

    You may remember, CNN and NBC said they both might produce films about Mrs. Clinton. But I was skeptical.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    O'REILLY: I'm going to predict that neither movie is going to be made before 2016. I don't think it's going to happen.

    Look, CNN is trying to come back from Armageddon, ratings Armageddon. They're trying to build up their shop over there. They don't need this. They don't need this.

    NBC is already labeled the far-left network. They already have problems in there.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    All right, last week, CNN and NBC said they were dropping the films. Miller is otherwise occupied this evening but I talked with him last night.

    (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

    O'REILLY: So, Miller, am I an oracle or what.

    DENNIS MILLER, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, you know, Billy, I think observers in the scene saw Hillary in her post-Secretary of State revelry --

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    -- as we should say. And they begin to sense that this thing might balloon into an iMax project.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    And they just didn't have that in the budget, so I think you're an astute observer, as oppose to an oracle.

    O'REILLY: Yes, well, you're talking about maybe that they -- no, I'm not even bothering with that.

    MILLER: You know why they shut it down?

    O'REILLY: Why, Miller.

    (LAUGHTER)

    MILLER: They didn't want the mini-series bias for Hillary to get in the way of their regular nightly newscast bias for Hillary.

    (LAUGHTER)

    So, they had to make this tough call.

    O'REILLY: They're just saving it up. OK, I got it. Now, government shutdown doesn't really affect you out in Santa Barbara.

    I mean you're living large, you're on the beach, you're chasing the pelicans, whatever the hell you do out there, --

    (LAUGHTER)

    -- I don't know. But the government shutdown doesn't really affect you, does it.

    MILLER: No, Billy. I don't know that it affects the 800,000 people laid off from the government in Washington D.C. Folks, I don't know if you've heard, you can get two years unemployment now.

    And they shut the zoo down, so all you leftists who are pro-animal, listen, that zoo was cruel. You should view this and see the silver lining in here. I'm not worried about the shutdown.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    I'm worried about when they start it back up.

    (LAUGHTER)

    And I don't think the Republicans are handling this well either. Did you watch that wild jammy party two nights ago, Billy?

    O'REILLY: Sure.

    MILLER: Not exactly Sandy telling Russo she's dating Danny Zuko. The thing about the Republican brain thrust is, I don't trust their brains.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    And they better realize, the guy who holds the bully pulpit righ now is an actual bully. And, lastly, I want to mention that anytime something is named after a guy, i.e., ObamaCare, and he doesn't want to sign up for it, that's a really bad tea leaf, OK.

    O'REILLY: That is a big -- a bad sign. Now, --

    MILLER: I mean, if I was him, I'd come on, just hold a presser and say, "Listen, I want to talk to you about MeCare, not ObamaCare, MeCare."
