Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

A few quotables from one of my favorite late-night hosts, Jimmy Fallon. These are from last week, Dec. 17 – 21, 2012, on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

“Hey, I want to say congratulations to American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, who got engaged over the weekend! Yeah, it’ll be weird at the wedding when the priest is like, ‘If anyone here objects to this union…text the word ‘no’ to my cellphone right now.’”

“On Wednesday, Time magazine will unveil its person of the year. Yeah, I can’t wait to see who it is – or should I say, Honey Who Who it is.”

“Here’s some political news. The White House announced that it has no plans to prosecute marijuana users in states where the drug is now legal, because they have quote ‘bigger fish to fry.’ When they heard that, stoners were like ‘Wait. Phish is in town??’”

“Some more news out of Washington. It’s rumored that John Boehner and President Obama are considering a partial deal to avoid the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. Yeah, it’s rumored that a partial deal is being considered – or to put that in layman’s terms: oh, we’re gonna go off this cliff.”

“Here’s some political news. Yesterday, President Obama and John Boehner talked about the fiscal cliff for 45 minutes, but the White House will not release a transcript of their conversation. However, they did offer to have Joe Biden reenact it with puppets.”

“Wait, we’re facing one of the biggest threats to our economy and they only met for 45 minutes? That’s not even the opening credits of The Hobbit!”

Some sports news. Last night, Mark Sanchez – he threw four interceptions and had a fumble in the Jets’ loss to the Titans. You could tell it would be an off night for Sanchez, ‘cuz during the coin toss he yelled ‘Scissors…I mean, rock…I mean, you pick it. I don’t know.’”

“Last week, a group of chefs baked the world’s largest pizza, which is gluten-free and contains nine thousand pounds of cheese. Or as Americans put it, “’ou had me at ‘world’s largest pizza’ – you lost me at ‘gluten-free’ – then you won me back with “nine thousand pounds of cheese.’”

“Jets coach Rex Ryan announced that third-string quarterback Greg McElroy will replace Mark Sanchez on Sunday. You know, ‘cuz nobody else answered the team’s Craigslist ad.”

“I heard that a major winter storm is threatening to cancel flights in the Midwest over the next 72 hours, as millions of people get ready to spend time with their families. Of course, Americans have a lot of questions about the storm – such as, ‘Why can’t my family live in the Midwest?’”

“AOL just announced that it will give every employee a one-thousand-dollar Christmas bonus. And that’s on top of giving them something even MORE valuable – a Gmail address.”

“A man in San Francisco got stuck inside a chimney for more than an hour. I don’t know what’s more embarrassing – having to be rescued by firemen or realizing you’re fatter than Santa.”
