Itâs the episode weâve all been dreading but wonât be able to turn away from: Tonight, Capt. Phil Harris passes away on Deadliest Catch. Son Josh Harris and friend Johnathan Hillstrand stopped by The Tonight Show Monday and shared a few memories of the beloved skipper. Josh remembered the day his father, who was always in a hurry, rushed home because he had so many things to do. âMeerkat Manor comes on, on Discoveryâ¦ Life stops,â he said. âAnd then follows Escape to Chimp Eden. And heâs like, the first thing, âLook at the nuts on that monkey.â And heâs callinâ his buddies up. âYou gotta turn this on right now. Check out this monkey called Cozi.â My dad was the weirdest guy youâd ever meet. He was an awesome guy.â
After Josh and Johnathan vowed to Leno that they would both quit smoking - Phil had gone from 9.5 packs of cigarettes a day to about one - Jay showed a clip from tonightâs two-hour episode. It shows Josh at his fatherâs bedside, telling him that just like Phil used to come and grab his hand when he was a child whenever something went wrong, thatâs what heâll do for him now. Phil then apologizes for not being a better father when Josh was growing up. And Josh tells him he was the best dad he could have been, he taught him everything he needs to know to be a man. Josh says he wonât let him out of his sight, and they exchange âI love youâs as Josh wipes a tear from Philâs eye. Iâm so glad they had that conversation. Watch the clip below.
