Flashback 2014: Some of our favorite moments from 'The Five'

Another huge year for 'The Five'


This is a rush transcript from "The Five," December 31, 2014. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: Hello, everyone. Happy New Year's Eve! I'm Eric Bolling along with Kimberly Guilfoyle, Bob Beckel, Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld. The countdown to 2015 is on and this is "The Five."

Well, just hours until the clock strikes midnight and a new year begins. Two people who are going to help ring in the new year from Times Square shortly are Kimberly and Bob. Don't miss the "All-American New Year" extravaganza tonight with special hosts Bob, Kimberly, Anna Kooiman, Jesse Watters and Kennedy. That's going to be one heck of a party.

The big question we've been wondering for the last 364 days is, what's going to happen at midnight between Bob and Kimmie? It was freezing outside last year, but things heated up instantly when the clock struck midnight. And we've got to roll that tape.



GUILFOYLE: And incredible way to start 2014, that is for sure. And I'm so happy I'm doing it with you.



BECKEL: Absolutely, Kim.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, happy new year, Bob. I choose you over all of them!

BILL HEMMER, CO-HOST, FOX NEWS CHANNEL "AMERICA'S NEWSROOM": So after all this time, they were looking for a date and they found each other.

ELISABETH HASSELBECK, CO-HOST, FOX NEWS CHANNEL "FOX & FRIENDS": All this time and they were right there all night.

HEMMER: Right. We were there!


BOLLING: All right. We're going to turn it over to none other than Kim and Bob. But any thoughts about tonight?

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. There was screen grabs across --

BOLLING: As fast as they could away from that shot.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Yeah, why did they cut away?

BOLLING: Exactly!

GUILFOYLE: Well, it was so unexpected and there you go. But there's other stuff you didn't see, but I'm just going to --

PERINO: Did you just get caught up in the moment.

GUILFOYLE: I mean, how could I not? We had spent so much time together and in between commercial breaks we were like cuddling, trying to stay warm.

BECKEL: It was cold, man!

GUILFOYLE: You'd be surprised what you will do to stay warm and cozy on New Year's Eve. That is for sure. So I guess the pressure's on, Bob.

BECKEL: It is.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: But me, as a viewer, I found it to be incredibly romantic. It was like, you know, that -- it was like a romantic comedy, like "You've Got Mail" except instead of mail it was hepatitis.


BECKEL: Let me tell you something. Our set was out in front of McDonald's and the largest speaker like all of Madison Square Garden was right behind us and drowning everything else. And I polled one of our guests, I said -- which was a military guy -- some guy came in a wheelchair, so I said, this is it, and Kim said, I don't think this is the guest. I said, you're kidding. She said, no, it's not the guest. And the teleprompter didn't work, but it worked out fine.

GUILFOYLE: Yeah, because we saw the guest, we met him earlier in the green room and he was not in a wheelchair. And Bob pulled someone else in, too.

BOLLING: So this year it's going to be the two of you. You have Kennedy there, you have Jesse Watters, you have Anna Kooiman.


BOLLING: Big crew.

GUILFOYLE: Yeah! And we've got a lot of the "Red Eye" crew is going to be down being the correspondents as well, so we've got --

BECKEL: And we're on top of the hotel this time. Yes, indeed.

GUILFOYLE: And Joanne, and Bernie McGuirk is going to be on your other -- your cohort from O'Reilly.


GUILFOYLE: So it's going to be great. I think it's going to be a lot of fun. And I just -- I want to know what Bob has in store for me. Something special? I mean, look at him, he's dressed so gorgeous.

PERINO: You might be careful what you wish for.

BOLLING: I'm not sure, K.G. It kind of looked like you initiated the kiss last time.

BECKEL: Well, that was absolutely true. But you know why?

PERINO: He wouldn't have had the nerve to kiss her.

BECKEL: No, no, I tell you why she did it --

GUILFOYLE: He'd think I would bite him.

BECKEL: -- because she was taking sympathy on me because no one else was willing to kiss me.

GUILFOYLE: Aw, but we did have a great time last year. We were dancing --

BECKEL: We did.

GUILFOYLE: -- to Tony Bennett together.

BECKEL: You know, it was really good when it hit midnight, that was the fun part of it.

GUILFOYLE: Yeah, it was amazing.

BECKEL: After that, man, the cold was unbelievable.

GUILFOYLE: Trying to stay warm.

PERINO: The year goes by fast. Don't you feel like it was just yesterday?


GUILFOYLE: It's strange. I mean, it really does feel like yesterday and it's about to happen all over again. It's pretty exciting.

BECKEL: Is it just me or does anybody else think 2014 went fast?

PERINO: It went pretty fast.


GUTFELD: Very fast.

BOLLING: Well, you know what? 2014 was another huge year for "The Five." We have a lot of fun; we had a lot of fun. We'd like to look back at some of those times from this past year. And we begin with that other juicy on-air smooch with K.G. --

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my gosh!

BOLLING: -- on the receiving end this time. Watch.


GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, you heard it here from the greatest, Joe Namath here with me in Times Square. We're getting along. All right! And Saturday night, MVP party, right?

JOE NAMATH, FORMER NFL QUARTERBACK, NEW YORK JETS: Oh, MVP party. That's Roseland, come on by. You better come by.

GUILFOYLE: All right. I'm going with you.


BECKEL: I would give a million bucks for his black book is all I could tell you.


BOLLING: All right. K.G., a little surprised there?

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. That was -- it was pretty intense. It was kind of a nibbling situation. I don't know. I felt like he was like going to eat me or something. It was kind of crazy.

BECKEL: He was throwing footballs at her and then I thought that was going to be the give.

GUILFOYLE: No, that was Joe Theismann.

BECKEL: Oh, that was it? OK. But Joe Namath came up and did a boom-boom --

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. Then you told him later, Broadway Joe, settle down, you know, that I was out of his league.

BECKEL: Yeah. And give me the black book.

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. But I don't know. I think, you know, the biggest moment might be the bipartisan love sandwich that we create tonight.

BECKEL: Oh, I'm for that. I'm for that.


BECKEL: The problem was we couldn't find any people --

PERINO: Who was in the middle if it's a sandwich?

BECKEL: -- to join in. That was our problem.

BOLLING: All right.


BOLLING: Dana is up next. It's been another year filled with odes to Dierks Bentley, but Dana's heart will always belong to a guy on all fours. You've heard of Jasper, right?


PERINO: "Jasper's Mom" and Bob's says "I love Jasper."


PERINO: He's two years old today and Bob just could not wait to have him back on the show. Right, Bob?

BECKEL: Jasper, let me congratulate you on your birthday. Happy birthday.

PERINO: That's awesome!

BECKEL: (INAUDIBLE) I put in there.



BOLLING: Has Jasper ever embarrassed you at any time?

BECKEL: Every day.

PERINO: No. Jasper has served with honor and distinction.



BECKEL: Who would you like to see on the cover of Wheaties?

PERINO: Of course, I would choose the true champion of my family, Jasper. Look at him.



PERINO: Well, Jasper, he's the cutest dog in America. I mean, it was amazing. I got an email about it this weekend.

Jasper in South Carolina. Look at the beautiful shot. There's Jasper winning a parade.



PERINO: I thought it would be perfect over your couch. And I thought I would just present it to you and you can borrow it and have it in your apartment for a while.



PERINO: A baby would be more beautiful than Jasper? No.


GUILFOYLE: Oh, my gosh.

PERINO: I knew that I talked about him a lot, maybe not that much, although it does provide a lot of entertainment, right? He is a great dog, America's dog.

GUILFOYLE: It does. And the calendar is the gift that keeps on giving.

BECKEL: Greg, would you agree that she talks a lot about him?

GUTFELD: Not enough. You know what's interesting, though? A fun fact. You know that montage is French for let's fill up time with old content?

PERINO: Oh, yeah. People like to look at this stuff.


PERINO: It's like going through your diary.

GUTFELD: That was heartwarming.

GUILFOYLE: I loved it.

GUTFELD: Well, chest-warming. I thought I was going to throw up.

PERINO: You know what? You can rewind this and re-watch that part again.

BOLLING: No, but Greg makes a nice transition to this. Because Bob may poke fun at Dana, but she also got plenty of grief this year from Greg. Watch.


GUTFELD: I'm Greg Gutfeld along with Kimberly Guilfoyle, Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling and she swims laps in a sink, it's Dana Perino. This is "The Five."



GUTFELD: She's fluent in Lite Brite.



GUTFELD: She just winterized her Barbie Dream House.



GUTFELD: She owns a timeshare in Candyland.



GUTFELD: She kayaks in a pea pod.



GUTFELD: She was married to a Smurf in the '90s.



GUTFELD: Her Big Wheel is a hybrid.



GUTFELD: She jet skis on a seahorse.



GUTFELD: You should try her ladybug omelet.



GUTFELD: She packs her lunch in a thimble.



GUTFELD: She sleeps in a matchbox.



GUTFELD: She once beat a cricket in arm wrestling, it's Dana Perino.



GUTFELD: She pole-vaults with a toothpick.



GUTFELD: She snowboards on a lentil.



GUTFELD: She sunbathes on a Cheez-It.



GUTFELD: She's an honorary Keebler elf.



GUTFELD: She shoots pool with a breadstick, it's Dana Perino.



GUTFELD: She river rafts on a Triscuit.



GUTFELD: She snowboards on a Frito.



GUTFELD: She hang-glides on a butterfly.



GUTFELD: She uses a Candyland board as a jogging track, it's Dana Perino.



GUTFELD: She snorkels in a fishbowl, it's Dana Perino. This is "The Five."



GUTFELD: That's called a long-form joke. You do it for a year just so you can make it into a nice piece of performance art.

PERINO: I feel so belittled.

GUTFELD: Yeah, you -- oh, nicely done, you tiny person.

GUILFOYLE: Play on words. I think it's adorable. And all those things sound so much fun. Snowboarding on a lentil!

BOLLING: How did you not repeat once?

GUTFELD: I do, though. When I write them I do repeat them and then all of a sudden I go I think I said that before. But I have such a bad memory that I -

PERINO: You're really funny.


BOLLING: The options are endless.

BECKEL: Oh, yeah.

GUTFELD: So many small things in this world.

PERINO: Oh, my gosh. I'm going to rewind that and watch that, too.

GUILFOYLE: It's really funny, right? It's cute.

PERINO: Yeah, very cute.

BOLLING: All right. Bobby's up next, Mr. Beckel's not shy about hiding his feelings about radical Islam and he's developed a phrase he likes to use whenever he gets fired up.


BECKEL: I think anybody who says we should be tolerant of Islam, let me make my position clear: I've got no tolerance for you, none. And I could do anything I want to do. I mean, you can have a fatwa against me if you want to. And I would repeat what I said before: Fatwa this!



BECKEL: Have I got myself my fatwa yet? Fatwa this!



BECKEL: I said fatwa this and I'll say it again: Fatwa this! I don't really care.

PERINO: What about fatwa that?

BECKEL: Well, no, that's a different thing.


GUILFOYLE: Isn't that cute? So charming.

BECKEL: Well, you know, it's -- you know, I've been trying to make my point clear here. Finally, I will give them this. The Muslim community did finally near the end of the year come out and began to take on their own, but it took a long time. And I just found it appalling. And I did get a few letters, to say the least. And from CAIR, one of your favorite organizations.

BOLLING: Yeah Dougie Hooper.


GUTFELD: It is offensive.

GUILFOYLE: You call him Dougie?

BOLLING: Well, that's his real name, not --

GUILFOYLE: Oh, not Ibrahim.

BOLLING: He changed it to Ibrahim.

BECKEL: What do you think I said?

BOLLING: We'll get to that.

GUILFOYLE: I heard. It was -


BOLLING: Never mind. Is it better we move on?

GUTFELD: Yeah, yeah.

BOLLING: Did you ever get a fatwa?

BECKEL: I got on the front page of the Saudi Arabian, Iraqi and Iranian newspapers.

BOLLING: You have?

BECKEL: Yes. I don't know what they did. But I'm expected -- look, if there's 19 -- if you've really going to have the 72 virgins, I'm a born- again Christian, but if it's true I'll convert on my way up.

PERINO: Don't say that!

BECKEL: I'm only kidding.


BECKEL: I'm only kidding. My God.

BOLLING: Finally this year, we launched the "Fastest 7" segment on "The Five." I quarterbacked it. Three stories, seven minutes, one host, and a whole lot of fun.


BOLLING: Welcome back to the "Fastest 7." Three wild stories, seven whisking minutes, one winsome host.



BOLLING: Three seductive stories, seven swift minutes, one snappy host.



BOLLING: The "Fastest 7" rides again. A good one today. Three rousing stories, seven racing minutes, one radiant host.



BOLLING: Three humongous stories, seven humming minutes, one humble host. First off -- what? What?

BECKEL: We've been waiting for that for a long time, brother. Took you the whole dictionary to get through before you got that.

BOLLING: That is amazing!


GUTFELD: You've got to get a thesaurus!

BOLLING: I was literally shocked that you guys fell apart on that adjective.


GUTFELD: Humble?

BOLLING: Humble.

GUILFOYLE: That was the --

BOLLING: Really?


BECKEL: Eric, are you kidding? Are you kidding? Are you actually saying that with a straight face?

BOLLING: I'm saying -- I swear to God on my life I was -- really? Humble?

BECKEL: The only thing we've missed here is your entire family album going back to 2010.

BOLLING: Even if I talk about my family, that's not humble?

BECKEL: No, that's nice except you're always in the picture.

BOLLING: That's not true at all.

BECKEL: And then you and Schwarzenegger and you and blah, blah, blah, blah. I mean, it's fine. I mean, it's fine, you're humble.

BOLLING: But I'll give you credit, it takes a lot of time to figure out three adjectives that you haven't used 50 times throughout the year.

PERINO: Yeah, you don't want to be caught reusing an adjective.

BOLLING: Especially on the --


BOLLING: -- the holiday special show. Right?

PERINO: That's exactly right.

GUTFELD: Unless you're one repetitive host.



BOLLING: Tonight, later, right?

GUILFOYLE: Tonight, later, it's happening. I'm going to find the rest of my dress, somebody ate it, and it's going to be amazing. I'm going to go on a hunt.

BECKEL: A lot of people tried to eat her dress that she was (INAUDIBLE).

GUILFOYLE: Joe Namath's number-one (INAUDIBLE).

BOLLING: We're going to leave it right there. Don't go away, we've got a jam-packed show for you this hour, including a look back at some of the biggest stories of 2014. Plus, our predictions for 2015, our new year's resolutions and much more ahead on "The Five." Stay tuned.


GUILFOYLE: Welcome back to "The Five" New Year's Eve. So now to some of the biggest stories of 2014 and the most-talked-about topic this year on Facebook was the Ebola scare. And there were plenty of others to go around and we're going to go back and reflect on some of them. We're going to begin with Dana Perino. What was your big-story choice?

PERINO: Well, I think that the World Cup showed just how global social media is. That's the world's biggest sporting event. It brought cultures from all around the world together to talk about it all on Facebook, on Twitter. And I think that it showed a lot of excitement around the game.

I know that not everybody here likes soccer --

BECKEL: It's exciting.

PERINO: -- but if you're looking at this from a story standpoint, from being able to bring people together and get a story going on social media - -

GUTFELD: Are you getting money from big soccer?

PERINO: No, little soccer.

BECKEL: No, from the grass that grows there when you watch it.

GUILFOYLE: I think that was a very interesting choice.

GUTFELD: Surprising.

GUILFOYLE: You ordinarily wouldn't think that you would lead with sports.

GUTFELD: Contrarian.

GUILFOYLE: But you are incredible at betting with football.

PERINO: I am very good at the math (INAUDIBLE). I just -- I really do think that the World Cup was a huge event for Brazil. Despite a few hiccups they did pretty well. The United States, I mean, that storyline was amazing.


PERINO: They just went pretty far in the competition, were not expected to do so.


PERINO: But I just think from a social media standpoint, if you're a marketer and you're looking across the world, you want to sell products around the world, that was an amazing thing because it brought people young and old together, all different cultures, all speaking together in one spot. That's amazing.

GUTFELD: Globalist.


GUILFOYLE: Do you have a commentary on that?

GUTFELD: I don't think anybody remembers the World Cup.


BOLLING: Who won?

GUILFOYLE: I'm so excited about --

BOLLING: Well, who won?

GUILFOYLE: I don't remember who won. It's like the guys. But I did go and get -- we pulled out everywhere. When people say that Americans, oh, it was soccer, whatever -- trust me. I had to go to so many of the sporting goods stores, Modell's, everywhere to get those soccer books. They had the World Cup trading books where they had the trading cards and the stickers. I was buying them everywhere, buying them on Amazon.

BECKEL: Was this just for you?

GUILFOYLE: No. Well, I mean, we shared it at my house, but you trade and the kids like it and he loves soccer. So I'm excited about soccer in the United States.

GUTFELD: Did you know that in French soccer means zero-zero.

GUILFOYLE: OK. Well, that was an interesting factoid. Bolling, are you warming up to soccer, too?

BOLLING: It's really, really interesting to watch. It's fun to watch when it's at that level, at the competitive level, World Cup level. But to watch anything below World Cup -- I can't even watch major indoor -- they still have major indoor soccer in America? I don't even know; I couldn't sit through a game.


GUILFOYLE: Well, Bob is our roving soccer correspondent.

BECKEL: That's right.

GUILFOYLE: And he went to the --

BECKEL: And the one thing you should get at least once a game, just once a game, is "goal!" That's it.

PERINO: Well, maybe you'll get that. You might not get that is Greg's theory is --

GUILFOYLE: That's what he used to love to do. He used to love to, you know, yell that and everything and go hang out with Josh.

All right, Eric, what do you got for me?

BOLLING: So the story that I just -- I'm baffled by to this day, what happened to the Malaysian airplane? I mean, it was there, it was gone. There are so many theories that were all over the place, all over the board, terrorism, lost, pilot error. The plane is still somewhere --

PERINO: Putin.

BOLLING: -- it's going to come back. Putin.

GUILFOYLE: Evaporated.

PERINO: Vaporized.

BOLLING: And to this day I just -- I cannot believe they can't find one single molecule of that airplane somewhere.

GUILFOYLE: Crazy, right? That's very disturbing.

BOLLING: It's just --

PERINO: So what does your conspiracy theory hat tell you?

BOLLING: I don't know. I mean, I've got to -- listen, can I put it this way? Look, I lost an uncle, my uncle was shot down in World War II over in the South Pacific, they never found a piece of that airplane either. And after like 20 years, someone came forth and said, we saw his airplane go down. Never found one piece of wreckage in that as well. So maybe it's more common than we know.

BECKEL: You know what was amazing about this? How long that story lasted. We were on that thing for three or four weeks, didn't we, right?

GUTFELD: CNN did four months.

BECKEL: Four months.



PERINO: They're still doing it.

GUTFELD: But actually, I mean, it is -- it could potentially be the biggest story ever depending on where it went.

GUILFOYLE: You know why?

GUTFELD: I mean, if the plane was taken by terrorists and it's somewhere or if the pilot committed a terrorist act, that's a big story. But it could -- there's always that Occam's razor. It's the most obvious answer, it's probably the right one, and it was probably some bizarre malfunction. That's what it was.

GUILFOYLE: Doesn't it remind you we used to watch that show "Lost," right, on ABC --

GUTFELD: Oh, yeah, together, remember in the basement?

GUILFOYLE: Well, not really.

PERINO: Then you were found.

GUTFELD: Rescued!

GUILFOYLE: All right. Bob, guess what? You're up next. What was your biggest story of 2014?

BECKEL: Well, it was the saddest story for me, but you've got to give it credit, the takeover of the United States Senate by the Republicans. If you look at the map prior to the elections in November and then look at it afterwards, the Republicans whooped up on us and they've got the Senate back by a pretty big number, bigger than most people thought.

So I've got to think that in terms of the balance of power, in terms of policy, in terms of lots of things, that was the biggest story.

PERINO: But you know what was an under-reported story of the election was the so-called down-ticket Republican wins.

BECKEL: Yeah, state legislatures.

PERINO: So state legislatures, city councils, all across the board. Seventy percent of state legislatures are now run with Republican majorities, which means a lot for the future as well.

And also, if you're a governor, if you're a Republican governor and you have a Republican majority in --

BOLLING: In a blue state.

PERINO: -- that congress, yeah, then you can do a lot of good policy work.

BECKEL: Well, that was the big surprise. There were two or three went --

BOLLING: Republican governors winning in blue states.

BECKEL: In Maryland --

BOLLING: Illinois.

BECKEL: -- Illinois and --

PERINO: Connecticut.

BECKEL: -- Connecticut, that's right.

GUILFOYLE: So there were a lot of stories to choose from, right? We had the Eric Garner, we had Ferguson, the whole deal. But the biggest story for me from a national security and foreign policy standpoint was definitely ISIS and the tremendous amount of coverage --


GUILFOYLE: -- that we gave that. And we just see this with the resurgence of terror from even the Taliban in Pakistan murdering the children, to ISIS and just really coming out of nowhere and the horrible crimes that have been committed and the beheadings. You know, so this is something that we remain vigilant about and we're going to see this story continue forward in 2015. And hopefully, we are able to save some lives and do some incredible things as a country to make people safe.

GUTFELD: What's interesting about ISIS is that something like that would not have achieved what it did without the media. And Max Boot has said this before that terror really didn't come into being until there was a mass media. There's no reason to exact terror if it can't be disseminated globally, so instead it would just be a local horror, a man beheads somebody and it terrorizes the village.

But now we live in a time where we play into terror. So when somebody's beheaded or a cafe is taken hostage, it becomes a long, drawn-out event that benefits the person that does not, no different than, say, spree killers who go into schools, which then creates copycats.

It makes me believe that the less you cover these horrible acts, perhaps the less likely they will happen. But people have said that.

BECKEL: You know, Greg, let's remember this thing. The TV era for terrorism started in the Olympic games when the Israeli athletes were taken over.

PERINO: Right.

BECKEL: That was one where the world was brought into connection all around the world because TV brought it there. And that was the first one that I remember that was a significant terrorist attack.


PERINO: I also -- 2015 could be a very important year -- well, it will be an important year on the terror front. You look at even what's happened in the last six months of 2014 of how many nations have been the target of Islamic terrorists. Here at home we've had incidents, they were lone wolfs, thankfully.


PERINO: Canada, Australia, and then in Pakistan, Kimberly, you mentioned the 140 innocent lives being taken by the Taliban in Pakistan.

GUILFOYLE: Yes, mostly children.

PERINO: I mean, there are -- there may be a tipping point where you have nations coming together to try to do something --

GUILFOYLE: Well, I hope so.

BECKEL: That's exactly right.

PERINO: -- not just the immediate war and the ideological war to follow.


BECKEL: The tipping point was when they started to behead people publicly. That's when all of a sudden the Muslim countries began to say this is not Islam.

BOLLING: I'm not sure, Bob. I mean, they were beheading people in the hills in Iraq and we've seen --

BECKEL: No, no, I'm saying they've finally got to the point where they --

BOLLING: Well, I think Greg's right in that ISIS has figured out a way to get to every cell phone in the planet. You want to see a beheading? You want to see the aftermath?

GUILFOYLE: Well, that was the report because they were texting the generals to lay down their arms or we're going to execute your family, for the Iraqi army.

BOLLING: They've become masters of media, not just social media, of media. They've put together videos that are like, wow, it's like it's a massive media company put these things together with music, with emotion. And that's probably one of their best recruiting tools, believe it or not.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Greg, what do you got for us?

GUTFELD: Well, I chose a global thing because -- and it's media related. I call it the retreat from real evil. You look at Ebola, you look at ISIS, you look at Boko Haram, you look at Putin, you look at North Korea. There's an inability in mass media and in our government to prioritize threats. The media's definition of what is considered evil is internal. In fact, the United States is in itself the problem that needs to be fixed because it's white privilege or hereditary racism from our forefathers. And we need to fix that.

Where in reality, it's these external threats that we're talking about now, which is ISIS, which is Russia right now in the throes of whatever is going on. You have North Korea and you have Ebola still in Africa. Those are external threats that we have put aside. The foreign thuggery and the terror that accosts our freedom is less important to accusations of white privilege. And this is something that you hear over and over again.

And the accusations of white privilege are necessary to transfer power and privilege to the accuser from the person who's, frankly, bemused. I don't know. I don't see myself as hurting anybody.

BECKEL: Are you surprised how quickly these stories came and went?


BECKEL: I mean, because there's so much exposure on them. But you know, we talked about ISIS, we talked about, you know, the IRS threats. But it seemed to go away.

GUTFELD: You know what? It's a cycle, we talk about the news cycle. Something horrible happens, but don't worry, in four days something worse, and that's the way it works. And sometimes it helps people because they forget about it.

If you're in the middle of a scandal, like Sterling, Donald Sterling, all you got to wait is for a Cosby to come along.

PERINO: The next scandal.

BECKEL: Yeah, right.

GUTFELD: Yeah. And then Cosby -- all Cosby has to wait for is Sony. And then Sony happens and what do you get? Cuba. You know, it's something that it's a whack-a-mole.

BOLLING: It's a new way to handle a crisis, crisis management.

GUTFELD: You just wait.

BOLLING: No. But remember the NFL? The NFL was one where everyone said, why is Goodell coming out and talking about this? If he waits three or four days there's going to be another crisis to talk about and it will go away.


BOLLING: But some -- and to his credit, went after it and fixed it.


GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, that was really good.

GUTFELD: Was it really?

GUILFOYLE: I liked it.

GUTFELD: I don't know.

GUILFOYLE: The top viral videos of 2014, they are coming up next on "The Five."


ED HENRY, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: I'm Ed Henry in Washington.

Making headlines today: bodies and wreckage from air Asia flight are turning up 30 miles from where they were yesterday. Officials say some of the corpses are likely to end up in beaches. We still don't know what caused the crash.

Meanwhile, President Obama is drawing some criticism for his comments to NPR about the possibility of reopening the U.S. embassy in Tehran. He said, quote, "I never say never, but I think these things have to go in steps." The U.S. and Iran have not had diplomatic relations since the 1979 hostage crisis.

As we take a live look right now at Times Square, New Year's celebrations are taking place worldwide. Tens of thousands of revelers are expected to welcome 2015 right there in the Big Apple. If you aren't there, make sure to ring in the New Year right here on FOX. "All-American New Year" starts at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. You don't want to miss it.

I'm Ed Henry in Washington. Now back to New Year's Eve with "The Five."


DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: So, we've played a lot of viral videos on "The Five" this year. YouTube has revealed the top ones watched in 2014 and the most popular with 119 million views was Chica the Spider-Dog.


PERINO: That was one of the best ones. In fact, Greg, you tried to do that as a one more thing.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: Yes. Actually that is me.

PERINO: In that spider costume? Or the one screaming like a girl?

GUTFELD: Spices things up.

PERINO: Oh, is that right?


PERINO: Interesting. Hadn't thought about that.

Do you like that one, Bob?

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: I think it's fine. I don't understand it but I think it's fun.

PERINO: They put a spider costume on a dog.

BECKEL: Is that what that was?

PERINO: Yes. It looks like a giant spider.

BECKEL: So, Greg was dressed up as a spider costume.

PERINO: Yes, kind of. Or maybe not really.

BECKEL: All right. Got it.

PERINO: If you saw that in an elevator, Eric?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: I adore that. But I watched with Adrienne and she was really mad at it. If that ever happened I would be so ticked off.

What if someone gets hurt when they're running away from that thing? That's what she was saying. I think it was hysterical, though. I loved it.

PERINO: Do you have arachnophobia?


BECKEL: A what phobia?

PERINO: Fear of spiders.

GUILFOYLE: But listen, bad spiders that come across me with the shoes. It's ending. I killed one in the O'Reilly screening room.

PERINO: I heard about that. Number eight one of YouTube's trending videos with nearly 50 million views was the prank that terrorized New Yorkers called the devil baby.


PERINO: I'm laughing now. But if that happened to me I would have screamed. I would have been hysterical.

GUILFOYLE: I would have had a heart attack.

BECKEL: They should have given me a byline, don't you think?

PERINO: It kind of looked like you.

BECKEL: What was the name of that movie the guy started old and got young?

GUTFELD: "Benjamin Button."

BECKEL: Very good.

GUILFOYLE: That was super scary. That would totally freak me out.

BECKEL: What that?

GUILFOYLE: Yes. I will never watch "The Exorcist" or anything with the devil. I can't take it.

GUTFELD: It would terrify me to have strangers peek at me while I'm in my carriage.

BECKEL: That's not a real baby, is it?


BOLLING: Great prank.


BOLLING: Yes, college is all about pulling pranks. I mean, all about pulling pranks. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes not. Sometimes -- you know what my favorite one a couple of years ago on Halloween where a guy's been sitting in the chair and kids will come up and he'd jump out of the chair? Do you remember this one?


BOLLING: He's a scarecrow sitting in a chair. The kids would come up and knock on the door and get candy. One guy comes up, knocks on the door with his kids. The guy jumps out of the chair as a scarecrow and the guy, the father clocks him and knocks him out.

PERINO: I would maybe kick somebody in the face for that.

GUILFOYLE: Whoa. You sound mean!

PERINO: I don't like to be scared. I don't like to be scared.

GUILFOYLE: I don't like it, either, as you know.

PERINO: All right. This one wasn't on the top ten viral YouTube videos this year but it was apparently still watched by more than 18 million people.


REPORTER: What did you think about the ride?

NOAH RITTER, "APPARENTLY KID": It was great apparently I've never been on live television before. But apparently sometimes I don't watch the news, because I'm a kid. And apparently every time apparently grandpa just gives me a remote after he watches the powerball.


PERINO: A star is born, right, Kimberly?

GUILFOYLE: I love it. Look at him. Look at the confidence, the way he holds the mike perfect, speaking night. Star is born!

PERINO: Did you ever want to be in television, Bob, when you were that age?



BECKEL: I wanted to be in politics. Television scared me. After awhile it was a piece of cake.

GUILFOYLE: Look at him with the mike, he's so honorable.

PERINO: You like the kid, right?



GUILFOYLE: Keep it going.

PERINO: Apparently -- apparently --

BOLLING: Powerball.

PERINO: The kid got to go on "The Ellen Show." You ever "The Ellen Show."

GUTFELD: No, I haven't.

PERINO: Do you want to be?

GUTFELD: No, I don't. I thought we were talk about a different video. I have all these notes for a different video.

PERINO: I have it right here. Did you want to talk about your video you want to talk about?

GUTFELD: I wanted to talk about there was this trending video. There was a cat call video, remember?


GUTFELD: Where the woman walked down the street? This was all reverse engineered to portray men as pig.


GUTFELD: You found out later that most of this was kind of contrived.

Then there was the woman who pretended to be drunk. And then she walked down the street and guys were -- she tried to hook up with guys so the guys would take advantage of drunk girls. Turns out they were hired actors and didn't know what they were doing. Another hoax.

Then there were those sickening parents who allowed their children to become obscenity trolls.


GUTFELD: All in the name of sexism. We did this I think as a monologue. Those parents should be put away.

But I saw these as a disturbing trend. It's cynical, dishonest people using imagery to convey an ideology they could not defend with facts so they have to make crap up.

BOLLING: Like "Rolling Stone."

GUTFELD: Yes, exactly.

PERINO: We hope that changes in 2015.



GUTFELD: What's wrong, Bob? You don't want any substance?

BECKEL: No, my segment's down to eight second.

PERINO: We've got to go now, so we can get to Bob.

Last year on "The Five," we made our predictions for 2014. My crystal ball told me Kate Middleton would be pregnant with baby number two this year and I was right. Another prince or princess is on its way.

Up next our predictions for 2015, so stay tuned.


GUTFELD: Now, here's something you don't see on any other show on New Year's Eve. We're going to make our predictions for what's going to happen in 2015.

Dana, why don't we kick it off with you? What are your predictions?

PERINO: Since this is such an original segment, this is an original prediction. What I predict in 2015, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid will announce that he is not going to seek re-election in 2016 for the Senate.

GUTFELD: That is a scintillating prediction. Well done.

PERINO: That will be a big deal in Washington, right?

BOLLING: Not only that, I think the Republican whoever he or she may be will waltz into that seat.

BECKEL: You'll rue that day. Because Charlie Schumer is going to take over that seat.

PERINO: Not in Nevada.

BECKEL: No, I'm talking about --

PERINO: Anyway, what do you think of my prediction?

BECKEL: Probably right on.

GUTFELD: Good job there, Dana.


BOLLING: The last three years I've predicted we were going to be number one in all of cable news. I'm going to do it again. My mom told me never quit. And I think we -- our numbers are off the charts.

BECKEL: We really are. Because the other shows have twice the number of TV sets on than we do.

BOLLING: Right. But you mean we should be number one?

BECKEL: Yes. If we had their TV sets, yes.

GUTFELD: So, what you should do is buy everybody another TV set.

GUILFOYLE: I like the way you think.


GUTFELD: Five o'clock, it's only on at 5:00. That's a great little scam, selling TVs that only work from 5:00 to 6:00. I'm crazy.




BECKEL: My prediction is that both Obama and the Senate Republicans and the house Republicans need to do something or the public is going to turn on them. I predict that Obama and the Republicans will get along on tax reform, they'll get a deal and they'll get a deal on trade.

GUILFOYLE: Are we going to talk about what you predicted last year? Because I find it particularly charming.

BECKEL: Turned out to be right.

GUILFOYLE: No. You said, you predicted Obama care will be much better than doubters predict and not cost Democrats that many seats. Failed!

BECKEL: It didn't and it's much better than it was.


GUTFELD: So, Kimberly what's your prediction?

GUILFOYLE: Well, I had a winner last year because I predicted that the GOP would take back the Senate. Check.


GUILFOYLE: Thank you very much.

PERINO: I was nervous when you said that.

GUILFOYLE: You were. I think you had the apprehension going.

This year, this is a layup. I think this is a layup. Kim Kardashian?

BECKEL: Oh, God!

GUILFOYLE: Yep. She will have another baby. I'm not 100 percent sure with Kanye, but I think she will -- maybe.

BECKEL: Can I make one more prediction? That there will be a kiss tonight at around midnight on FOX News air! I'm not sure who's going to initiate it.

PERINO: Somebody's fog to turn into a frog.

BECKEL: It's going to be Bernie McGuirk and Jesse Watters.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, goodness gracious. What are my options, right? I don't know.

GUTFELD: My prediction is that there will be some things that will happen and other things won't. And someone on TV, perhaps a cable show, will say, you can't make this stuff up, folks!

Stay tuned. "The Five" New Year's resolutions are next!


BECKEL: It's that time of the year again, resolution time.

Here's what some folks around the building here are planning to do in the New Year.


BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: All right. My 2015 New Year's resolution is perform with the Rockettes again and get my abs back.

GRETA VAN SUSTER, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: In 2015, I want an Aaron Rogers interview, I'm a Green Bay Packers shareholder. Aaron, do it!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I resolve to work less and go to more sporting events. It's going to be a very difficult 2015.

GERARDO RIVERA, FOX NEWS: My New Year's resolution for 2015 is to laugh more. Beginning right now.



BECKEL: Should have gotten a selfie of that one.

OK. Let's go around the table. Eric, what's your resolution this year?

BOLLING: All right. So, to be more charitable and altruistic especially when you laughed at me about being humble.

GUILFOYLE: I'm going to be more altruistic because you already are!

BOLLING: So, can I not show this picture?

GUTFELD: Yes, you can.

BOLLING: Here's a picture --


BOLLING: -- of me.

GUTFELD: You are so humble.

GUILFOYLE: Being altruistic and humble.

BOLLING: And altruistic. There is my son who I absolutely adore helping serve Thanksgiving dinner.

You guys are right. I --


BECKEL: Dana's what's yours?

PERINO: Well, I think Kimberly will like this one.


PERINO: In 2015, I'm going to work on my posture. Because, you know, Bob, the other day, your "One More Thing" was telling people they really need to take good care of their backs, and I don't want to continue to hunch over with the iPhone and carrying the bag and everything, so I'm working on my posture.


BECKEL: You're doing by Pilates this year, aren't you?

GUTFELD: Yes, I do a lot of Pilates?

GUILFOYLE: You really? Like a private instruction.

GUTFELD: Yes, I do.


GUTFELD: In my basement, if you like to come and see it sometimes.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, I want to get stressed out in the rack.

GUTFELD: My resolution is to stop killing geese in the park. I don't know why I do it. I just go in there and strangle them.

BECKEL: You strangle geese?


GUILFOYLE: You'll be in trouble with PETA.

BECKEL: Now, what about yours, my darling? Except your wish that I'll be with you today.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, that wish is going to come true, and what's interesting, for those of you keeping track, my last year's New Year's resolution was I was going to try to resist the temptation to become one with Bob, because there were all these rumors about -- I know, I blew it. I actually broke it 15 seconds into 2014, right? Isn't that hilarious?


GUILFOYLE: Whoa. So here's the deal. So this year I'm going to put myself on five-second delay so that before I think about eating Bob alive from the neck up, I'm going to pause, take a deep breath, think it through and throttle back. And not yell at him.

GUTFELD: Keep talking about this for another 10 minutes, please?

BECKEL: No, no, listen --

GUILFOYLE: I'm talking about not yelling at him.

BECKEL: My resolution for next year is to finally get this back done. By the way, I had a terrific conversation last night with a doctor last night in South Carolina, Jeff Shyberg (ph), who gave me a lot of advice. And if you have these problems, get a second opinion.

"One More Thing" is up next.

Oh, yes, we want your resolutions. Sorry. Tweet some to us, #foxnews2015.

"One More Thing" is up next. That's what I said at the beginning of that.


BOLLING: All right. Time for "One More Thing."

K.G., you're kicking it off.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, I hope you decide to spend even more time with us on New Year's Eve. I mean, what else could you be doing other than FOX News Channel New Year's Eve Special. We're going to be on from 9:00 p.m. Eastern until 12:30 in the morning, ring in 2015, and you see the amazing staff we're going to have there, all of us co-hosting.

We've got Bob Beckel, Ricky Bobby. He's going to be there with me. This is our new tradition. We've got Anna Kooiman, Jesse Watters, Kennedy, and a whole school of people down.

BECKEL: And I'm very proud to bring my daughter along to do that.

OK, I do this every year, and I'll do it again. There are going to be thousands of people that die from drinking and driving this holiday season. Please, please get somebody to drive for you. A life lost affects a lot of people around you.

So, please, stop and think about it. It will kill you.

BOLLING: Great advice.

Greg, you're up.

GUTFELD: These are my top five albums of 2014. Number 5 is Black Bananas. Great heavy metal, drug-induced pop music.

White Fence, which is melodic pop, I would check it out if you like `70s rock.

Ty Segal (ph), manipulator, an amazing record. They're probably the best garage rock you'll find. Aerial Pink, these are brilliant pop provocateur, a genius, great album.

And my number one pick for the year is Luminous by the Horrors, an amazing British band, shoegaze pop songs, epic, epic music.

BOLLING: Very good, very good.

Hey, D., you're up.

PERINO: OK. Well, there is going to be a trend in 2015 that doctors will no longer automatically prescribe you pills when you go to the doctor. It's a new trend. They're going to tell you, why don't you try to jog for 3 miles and call me tomorrow? Why don't you try a yoga class?

This is becoming a big deal because they don't want to give out as much medication. They're trying to prescribe better behavior. I don't know --


GUTFELD: This is the kind of thing that will get me on the streets.

GUILFOYLE: No, that's awesome if you have a severe case of bronchitis if you could develop pneumonia and you could die. That sounds great to go jogging.

BOLLING: All right. Before we go, I just want to say a couple of words about the show. The reason the show works is the chemistry. We all bring something -- a different ingredient to the potion.

The way Dana brings clash and balance to every single debate, the way Greg brings humor and satire to poignantly, poignantly highlight hypocrisy, the way Kimberly explains the law that everyone that can understand and she does with grace. And, Bob, the guy who's as liberal as the day as long, but also as lovable as the day is long.

I'm proud to be spending this time with you guys for the fourth year on New Year's Eve.

PERINO: Amazing.

BECKEL: And thank you all.

BOLLING: Happy New Year's, everybody.

PERINO: I never had a job this long.


GUTFELD: That's true.

BOLLING: Thanks for watching tonight. We're going to see you back here in 2015. Happy New Year, everybody.

GUILFOYLE: Happy New Year.

PERINO: Have you guys ever had a job this long?
