I’m going to ask you for some silly words — nouns,
verbs, adjectives, et cetera. As we do that, they’ll be
written on cue cards. -Okay.
-And then we’re going to act out a very dramatic…
-Yes. …Mad Lib scene.
-Don’t — this is serious. -Oh, I know.
-Take it seriously. Seriously, don’t smile.
-Be serious. -Yeah, be serious for once.
-Don’t laugh. -Hey, hey, hey.
[ Light laughter ] -I mean, you have to know how…

Okay. [ Laughter ] Letter of the Alphabet. -Um…Q. -Q.
Something you hate doing. -Um, going to the dentist. -Really? I like it.
-Ugh. I like the after, but the
during — very uncomfortable. -Really?
-Yeah, I don’t like it. -Do you gas it?
-No. Is that the secret?
-I don’t know. People are afraid
of dentists, they — -I’m afraid of gassing. [ Laughter ] But I’m a lightweight.
-I don’t know if it’s called gassing or if they do this.
But I know that — I think it just makes you laugh. Quest, you’re always going
to the dentist. Do you have gas?
-Do you take the gas? -Questlove!
Questlove, do you have gas? [ Laughter ] -Are you gassy?
Are you gassy? -Yes, he’s very gassy.

construction — screwing. [ Laughter ] -Exclamation. -Um, “Sweet Jesus!” [ Laughter ] -Amount of time,
like two minutes or 20 hours. -Um…19 years. -19 years. Type of profession. -Um, profession…
lady of the night. [ Laughter ] -This is fantastic.
A lady of the night. How classy.
-It’s the oldest profession. -It’s the oldest profession. -A noun.
-A noun, um…Range Rover. [ Laughter ] -Fantastic. Celebrity name. -Oh, um…Lady Gaga. -Yeah, Lady Gaga. Name of a famous athlete. -Um, I’m scared
to say my husband so I’ll say um, uh,
Michael Jordan. -Michael Jordan. Plural noun.
We’re almost done. -Um, lily pads. [ Laughter ] -The frog theme.
-I’m having a frog day. -Yeah, you’re
having a frog moment. Restaurant chain. -Um, Olive Garden. -Absolutely, man.
[ Cheers ] When you’re here
you’re family, dude. [ Laughter ] We filled out
the words for our scene. Are you ready to perform?
-Yes. Are you ready?
-Very dramatic. -Let’s go. [ Cheers and applause ] -And I’m glad you were able
to make it to this parent-teacher meeting,
Mr. Spectacularicious. [ Laughter ] Please have a seat.
-Oh, yes. -You’re supposed to wait
till I ask you to sit. -Thank you, I — yeah. Good to see you again,
Ms. Fluffy Girl. [ Laughter ] -So, I want to talk to you about
your son, little Coconut. [ Laughter ] I’ve been a teacher for
many years and I’ve never seen such a fuzzy child. [ Laughter ] -Not today, Satan! [ Laughter ] Uh-uh, uh-uh! [ Cheers ] Not today, Satan! -I — no, I —
-Satan, not today, Satan! Hey! [ Stomps floor ]
Not today, Satan! -I am as surprised as you. Your son is getting
a Q in math… [ Laughter ] …and a D in going
to the dentist. -Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
-And for show and tell, he brought in seven billion
smelly frogs. [ Laughter ] It was very smelly.
-I will — -It was terrible.
-I will admit that his mother and I started letting him stay
up late to watch “Good Times.” -Oh, well that explains it. -How is little Coconut’s
class participation? -Well, you know,
he constantly calls out even though I tell him
if he has a question, he has to raise
his belly button. -He has — He has an outie.
He has an outie. -He does.
He’s got to raise it up. -Yeah, exactly.
-Got to lift it up. -Lift it up, yeah.
-He’s gotta be proud. -Not today, Satan!
Not today, Satan! -Got to say,
“I have something to say.” Yeah, and today during
social studies, I found him in the back
of the classroom, screwing. [ Laughter ] -Sweet Jesus! [ Laughter ] Sweet Jesus! Not today, Satan!
Sweet Jesus! Not today, Satan! Oh, not today. -I want to say one more thing.
-[ Laughs ] You don’t have
to raise your hand. Is there anything
you suggest that I do to help my son improve? -Yes, of course.
That’s why you’re here. I want you to read with him
at least 19 years every night. [ Laughter ] I actually just
bought him the book, “Harry Potter and
The Ladies of the Night.” [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] -That’s a very good one.
-It was a good — That’s a very good one.
-Yeah, yeah. -That’s a very popular book here
at Lady Gaga Elementary School. -Yes.
-Yes. [ Laughter ] So anyways, I also suggest
you sit down and make sure… -Anyways.
-…that he does his homework. -Oh.
-Because last time, he just said that Michael Jordan ate it. -Oh, that’s a classic excuse.
I understand. -But listen, he’s very well
liked in class, very well liked. And he often leads the other
students in singing his favorite song, “The Lily Pads
on the Bus.” -Oh, I love that song. Do you want to sing it together? [ Laughter ] -Of course. -♪ The Lily pads on the bus
go round and round ♪ ♪ Round and round ♪ ♪ Round and round ♪ ♪ The Lily pads on the bus
go round and round ♪ ♪ all through
the Olive garden ♪ And, scene! That’s how you do
it right there. Kerry Washington.
You are the greatest. -I love you.
-We’ll be right back with more “Tonight Show” everybody.
Come on back. [ Band plays ]

    Jimmy: What would you say if you saw a monster under your bed?

    Me: Why're you under there? Bed's warmer. (Alternative: Hey, sis.)

    Jimmy Fallon is the worst. I love his games and his guests though. I always watch these clips but I find myself fast forwarding through his parts. Also, does anyone get the vibe that he might be kind of a jerk?
