welcome to the show, everybody. thank you. good evening. good evening, everyone. welcome to the fourth hour of "the tonight show." you hear about this? osama bin laden released a new 11-minute audio tape where he calls president obama "powerless" in the war against afghanistan. well, that was the first six minutes. he gave taylor swift the last five to finish her acceptance speech. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that was nice of him. wow, the mtv -- the vmas were crazy, huh? kanye west hijacked taylor swift's acceptance speech. it was really, really tense. and then -- then he showed a trailer for his new movie, "i can do stupid all by myself." [ laughter ] [ applause ] it was exclusive. exclusive. during the show, the stars of "twilight" were there. robert pattinson, kristen stewart and taylor lautner. they showed up in person. i was there, it was nuts. people were screaming, crying, panties were being thrown. [ laughter ] then my wife was like, "jimmy, calm down." and i was like -- [ laughter ]
they're my panties. i'm going to do what i want to do with them.

[ scattered applause ] she yelled at a line judge, "if i could, i would take this "f"-ing ball and shove it down your "f"-ing throat." [ laughter ] on the bright side, at least she won't lose her sponsor, dunlop "f"-ing tennis balls. [ laughter ] they're the "f"-iest. [ laughter ] here's some political news. this saturday in washington, over 70,000 people protested because they think president obama is trying to shove government health care down their throats. also known as the "serena williams option."

[ laughter ] don't -- "don't make fun of the mets. don't make fun of the mets." brett favre and the minnesota vikings won their first game of the season over the cleveland browns. favre threw for one touchdown. he would have had more, but he retired three times during the game. it was very -- [ laughter ] you're on the edge of your seat. this is interesting. according to a survey of all the social networking sites, twitter has the highest percentage of older users. though in fairness, most of them just keep creating new accounts because they can't remember their password. [ laughter ] they're like, "was it your birthday? or was it --" in addition to having the highest percentage of oldest users, twitter also has the highest percentage of users who call their kids and say, "okay, i've signed up, now what do i do?" [ laughter ] i love the older twitter users.
their updates go something like this -- "walking to the bathroom." "still walking to the bathroom." [ laughter ] "guess where i am now? the bathroom." "leaving the bathroom." "wait, no -- walking back to the bathroom." [ laughter ] the season finale of hbo's "true blood" aired last night.

mcdonald's is calling it "a very happy meal." that's the name of it. [ laughter ] and finally, in his effort to reform the nation's health care system, president obama said to both democrats and republicans that the time for bickering is over and now is the time for action. you know, i was gonna make a joke about the delicate process of achieving bi-partisan compromise on a piece of national legislation, but i don't think it needs a joke. you know what i mean, tariq? >> tariq: jimmy, are you saying you want to "slow jam" this news? >> jimmy: yeah, i want to "slow jam" the news. let's get into it! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: hi, there. how you doing? my name is jimmy. i like long walks on the beach, holding hands and weighing in on the president's options for achieving a health care bill

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: you see, the republican plan only has eyes for tort reform. >> tariq: they have a slim lil' bill with hundreds of motions and positions. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: but the democrats want us to go public with this health care relationship. >> tariq: nothing is sexier than a woman with coverage under my covers. [ laughter ] it's all right.
>> jimmy: it's all right. >> tariq: it's all right. >> jimmy: all right. >> tariq: it's all right. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: as both the senate and the house bill just make their way down to the floor, which bill are they going to slap their seal of approval on? >> tariq: house resolution 3-2-0-0. $900 billion is mucho dinero. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: sure, barack can just ram it on through the congress. why not get a bill we can all live with, settle down with, raise some little amendments with? >> tariq: don't settle for some old sly fly by night legislation that's gonna leave you in a compromised position. >> jimmy: most of all -- it's all right. >> tariq: it's all right. >> jimmy: all right. >> tariq: it's all right. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: make sure the process is there for all of us to see. we're all curious what happens in congress' chambers.
>> tariq: come out of the closet. come out of the dark. let's do it with the lights on. [ laughter ] [ applause ] it's so good. >> jimmy: you know we all like to watch -- [ laughter ] we all like to watch when the two sides come together in mutual co-op-ulation. [ laughter ] >> tariq: we want the process to be transparent, translucent, clear, sheer, gossamer, not opaque, diaphanous! i don't mean to be too pedantic. [ laughter ] my fault. >> jimmy: wow. ♪ >> jimmy: it ain't no fun, if the homies don't have none.
health care that is. >> tariq: the movement is so right. so, don't let it pass. barack ain't the first to tackle health care, but he will be the last. the last! the last! >> jimmy: won't be the last! >> tariq: the last! >> jimmy: and that is how we "slow jam the news," everybody. ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the roots.

establishment called "trader john's" was the name of the place, as a matter of fact. and so i drove over to a friend of mine's house who was married, a classmate of mine from the naval academy. and he and some other unmarried couples were there. and so i said, "hey, i would like for you to meet some of my friends." we came in, and she wasn't dressed exactly the way that all of the wives were. and, obviously, after not a very long period of time, she grew a little bored with the conversation. so she reached into her purse and took out a switchblade and began to clean her fingernails. [ laughter ] which is -- could happen. >> jimmy: that's a normal thing. everyone does that. a switchblade. >> 30 years later, at a naval academy reunion, the guy's wife came over and said, "i never forgotten what you did, bringing that person into my house." >> jimmy: "the flame of florida." >> "the flame of florida." too bad it things didn't work out with you two. but, hey, what are you going to do? you know what i'm going to ask you about? we're both on twitter. what made you go on twitter?

sometime, of oppressive clerics in iran. it is, i'm telling you, it is incredible what is it going on. it's so powerful. >> jimmy: we have different tweets me and you. [ laughter ] >> slightly different. slightly different. >> jimmy: i actually have an example, a couple examples. all right? here is one that you wrote. you wrote, "productive meeting with president saleh in yemen. enormous challenges in a country with two insurgencies." and around the same time, i wrote, "didn't see 'halloween ii' yet. going this weekend." [ laughter ] similar. and you -- another one, put, "late evening with colonel gaddafi at his ranch in libya. interesting meeting with an interesting man." and, at the same time, i wrote, "thanks to mario batali for our gift, 100 pbrs on ice."

>> jimmy: really? >> it's very, very tough, and it is a bad place. that is where 9/11 began, as you know. al qaeda was trained and equipped there. and they're the people that did such a horrible thing to this great city in america. so, it's going to be long and it's going to be hard and it's going to be tough. but, i'm telling you that there are thousands and thousands of young men and women who are there in iraq and afghanistan who are going to be seeing this show. and, thanks, because they're the best of america. they really are. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: let's take a couple of twitter questions here. >> twitter? >> jimmy: yeah, some tweets. this one is from mr. 570. look, he's having a nice coffee there. "is it true that the current health care system will implode if we don't change things? in other words, is there really a problem?" >> this is really a problem. i mean, medicare is going to be broke in about seven years. and that is something that's just going to happen.
we can't continue to pay for it, and so we've got to fix it. and we need to fix it. and i think that we can. but it's time we really sat down together rather than the kind of back and forth. i was interested in the president saying that the time for bickering is over. what time -- what was bicker time? i missed that. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> the fact is we need to work together. we need to save the system. and we can. we can. working together, we can. >> jimmy: do you talk to the president much? >> i talk to him when -- seriously, when it's necessary. the president is the busiest man in the world. and i do -- we have a cordial relationship. we have worked together on a number of issues. i know we'll be work together on afghanistan and other problems. >> jimmy: do you like the way he's doing things? >> i think that he is a very charismatic and very effective leader. his speeches and conversations with america, i think, are very effective. we have disagreements on some things, and there's other areas where we agree.
but i think that he is extremely effective. >> jimmy: yeah. well, let's take another twitter question. second question, here we go. this is from mpgeno. or -- i don't know. mpgeno. i can't read anymore. okay. "please ask -- [ laughter ] his thoughts on personal responsibility and health care. can we legislate healthy lifestyles if it saves us all money?" >> sure, we should. right now, there's companies and corporations that reward people for wellness and fitness. if you join a health club, if you don't smoke, if you're -- you keep your -- keep weight under control, then there should be rewards for doing that. and that can save money. it saves money all of the time. there's no doubt that people that are obese have enormous problems in life with health care. so, it's clear that we should reward wellness and fitness and healthy lifestyles.
>> jimmy: bloomberg and giuliani were doing good. there's no smoking in bars now. and, like, you go to a bar for health reasons, please. [ laughter ] but, anyway, that was good. you know, there's no trans fats and stuff like that. so, that's all working. we have one more twitter question. who is -- this is from jimmy fallon. who is your favorite "snl" cast member turned talk show host in the last 15 years?
