[ cheers and applause ] welcome, welcome. thank you for being here, everybody. here what people are talking about. new jersey governor chris christie. [ laughter ] man, he's just having a rough week. i'm sure you heard about this. he's in a lot of trouble because his staff shut down part of the george washington bridge to get back at a political rival. and yesterday, christie gave a 107-minute press conference to address the scandal. man, last time chris christie talked for 107 minutes, he was ordering at ihop. [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: really? >> jimmy: yeah. rooty tootie, fresh and fruity. that's right, christie apologized and he promised the bridge will stay open for cars,
trucks, and the buses he's throwing his staff under. so don't worry. [ laughter and applause ] don't worry. don't worry. this is a pretty crazy story here. this week former cbs news anchor dan rather revealed that he once tried heroin back in the 1950s. as part of a research for a story -- part of research for a story. may have said it was for research. but he assured people that nowadays it's strictly for fun. [ laughter and applause ] likes to watch "the walking dead," chill out. the golden globes are this weekend. very exciting. [ cheers and applause ] very exciting. i'll be going. one of the films that's nominated is actually generating a lot of con-tra-versy. [ laughter ] "the wolf of wall street." did you guys see "the wolf of wall street"? apparently it broke a record for
using the "f" word 506 times. that's not my problem with it. my problem with the movie -- no wolves. [ laughter ] how can yohave a movie called "the wolf of wall street" and have no wolves? so here's a clip from the movie the way it should be -- with wolves. >> nobody knows if the stock is going to go up, down, sideways or inside out. >> do you know what a fugazi is? >> no. >> fugazi, it's a fake. fairy dust. >> we don't work for you, man. >> you have my money taped to your boobs, technically you do work for me.

[ light laughter ] >> steve: the whole section right there. yeah. >> jimmy: people with glaucoma hope it will treat their condition, while people without glaucoma are trying to get
glaucoma. [ laughter and applause ] it sounds hard to believe, but this week marked seven years since apple unveiled the iphone which, as we all know, has revolutionized the cell phone industry. it's crazy to think it's been around for seven years. >> well, enjoy, jimmy, because this is its last year. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: excuse me, mark? >> you heard it here first. this little iphone fad is over. [ laughter ] just like chain wallets in the 90s, and the pet rock in the 80s, the iphone has come and gone. i mean, think about it. is it just me or does anyone even use it anymore? >> jimmy: i think it's just you, mark. [ laughter ] >> oh, jimmy, you're a funny guy. but seriously -- let me see -- let me show exactly what i mean. in our audience right now, if you actually use an iphone, raise your hand. wow. an audience full of liars.

[ laughter ] i'm just going to forget that happened. i don't know what that was. >> steve: i would, i'd move on. >> jimmy: sometimes you just -- things just happen, come out of his brain.

[ laughter ] oh, i just saw this recent report here that estimates that 38 million americans are drinking too much alcohol. [ cheers and applause ]
not our audience. i think that number must be based on the recent poll that was taken. check this out -- 14% of people said, "i don't drink too much alcohol." 33% said, "you drink too much alcohol." [ laughter ] 26% said, "hey, get off may back, man. what are you even doing a stupid poll for? maybe you got the problem."

skinny body." [ laughter ] this kind of made me laugh. i saw that this dog in washington managed to shift his owner's parked car and drive and actually crashed it into another car.
