and featuring the legendary roots crew. >> questlove: 572. >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hi, everyone! welcome! [ cheers and applause ] welcome! welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome to "the tonight show." this is it. you made it. [ cheers and applause ] you're here. you're watching. thank you very much. hot crowd tonight. here's what people are talking about, you guys. i saw that president obama was in greece yesterday, to meet with the greek prime minister.
yep, obama went to the birthplace of democracy to say, "spoiler alert." [ laughter and applause ] that's right, obama began his final foreign trip in athens, greece. while back at the white house joe biden held his final toga party as vice president. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] dad's gone! ♪ was like a -- are we the conga line? what are we doing? ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ it's like a pizza on the turntable. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: or the record, i don't know. >> steve: somebody playing the base. >> jimmy: dad's gone. we didn't do anything, dad. [ light laughter ] but to mark obama's visit, greece's president made a toast in his honor. it was very nice. check out what he said. [ speaking foreign language ]
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: it was very interesting. isn't that nice? i think that -- i think that's the translation. >> steve: i think that. yeah, i don't speak greek. it's all greek to me. >> jimmy: i don't know, yeah. [ laughter ] between now and inauguration day, donald trump's transition team has to appoint 4,000 people. and because they need to hire so many people in such a short time, they made a special job application for anyone interested. and so right now i'm going to tell you, the best way to fill it out to land a job in the trump administration. for example, the first question is, did you vote for trump? [ laughter ] you're going to want to answer yes on that. next question is, did you hear anything trump said during the election? for that you're going to want to answer no. [ laughter ] that's a -- [ applause ] and finally, for the question, are you a u.s. citizen? you're going to want to circle, is this a trap? [ laughter and applause ] and there you go. just, just a little helpful hint and you'll be in there. don't worry about it. >> steve: little fyi. >> jimmy: don't worry about it. yesterday donald trump and mike pence reportedly received
their first presidential daily briefing of sensitive national intelligence. or as trump asked putin, "do you prefer email or fax?" [ laughter ] meanwhile, it's been announced that donald trump's name will be removed from the trump place apartment buildings here in manhattan. but trump's already found another place for it. take a look. it's subtle. [ laughter ] i think it's -- you barely, you barely notice it. >> steve: tasteful. tasteful. >> jimmy: "it is classy, it is beautiful, it's fantastic." i'm guessing nobody's more upset about trump being elected than this man in iowa. he made a bet with a friend last week and things didn't turn out so well for him. check this out. >> zach colbert supports bernie sanders. but he promised to get a tattoo of donald trump on his body, if trump won the election. zach went to a tattoo artist and posted every mark live on facebook. >> i'm thinking about my life and how -- how it went wrong. and now i'm in a chair getting a trump stamp. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: trump stamp. >> steve: trump stamp. >> jimmy: he got a trump stamp. might as well get the trump
tattoo now before they're mandatory. [ laughter ] trump stamp. >> jimmy: i saw that snapchat's parent company has filed paperwork to sell its stock publicly. snapchat, yeah. now comes the hard part, teaching its parent company how to use snapchat. [ laughter ] like, "no. dad, just don't do it! get off it!" check this out, the ride sharing app "lyft" is going to debut a new color changing displays on car dashboards on new year's eve to make it easier for you to find your ride. though on new years eve most people will be lucky if we can tell the difference between a a car and a mailbox. it's like -- [ laughter ] "see you later. i think my car is here. oh, it's for you. hold on a second." listen to this. i saw that denver just approved a law that will make it the first city in the u.s. that lets people smoke marijuana in public places like bars and restaurants. [ cheers ] which is great news for the three stoners who actually
leave their homes. [ laughter ] so that would be a big deal to them. "i'm going to venture out, dude! ah!" [ light laughter ] finally, here's a crazy story coming out of california. apparently a man there was just arrested -- this is real -- for terrorizing residents in his neighborhood by blasting an air horn in the middle of the night. [ laughter ] this is not, i'm not, i'm not joking. take a look at this guy's mugshot. look. [ laughter ] kind of looks like he might have aimed the air horn backwards. [ laughter ] oh, my goodness. can we see that guy again? forget the air horn. are we sure that he wasn't just making that noise himself? [ air horn ] we have a great show tonight! give it up for the roots! [ cheers and applause ] ♪

[ cheers and applause ] big show tonight. and the last two nights i've been -- i can't get this out of my head, because i've been watching a lot of "gilmore girls." gearing up. gearing up the choo-choo train for the netflix special that's coming on, after thanksgiving, i'm like, it's four -- it's four shows, it's one off. it's just, i'm freaking out. anyways, i picked my top four characters on the show besides rory and lorelai. >> steve: right. >> jimmy: of course, they were taylor, you know, the town mayor guy, whatever. >> steve: yes. >> jimmy: yeah. he just makes me laugh. luke, of course. kirk. and then paris geller. my number one, love her. but anyway, so anyways, i talked about it last night on the show, they tweeted me today, and they said they were psyched, they were like joking around.
they were -- that was cool. and it was trending. just 'cause people, they just want to know, those trending #top4 -- no, "gilmoregirlstop4." yeah, so anyways, that was trending. 'cause people were saying, even the actors were saying, who their favorites were. but then i thought of a more interesting thing, is this. 'cause i had the invisible fifth. which is, i just made that up. there is no top -- top four with an invisible five. i said well, the invisible fifth is gotta be sookie, who is melissa mccarthy. she's great. [ cheers and applause ] then i rethought it. >> steve: what? >> jimmy: i stayed up all night, i didn't sleep. [ light laughter ] no, but i thought about my new invisible five, it's going to be amy sherman-palladino. >> steve: oh. >> jimmy: yeah, no, yeah. [ laughter ] >> steve: i love it. >> jimmy: she's the writer, the creator of the show, "gilmore girls." but she wrote all of them, and up to season six. and she told everyone, i'm going to end the show with four words. then she didn't tell -- she famously said this. then she didn't come back 'til season seven.
some type of contract issue. i don't know. i don't wanna get into how the sausage is made. but this is -- [ laughter ] >> steve: so you -- >> jimmy: i just sit back, i enjoy the "gilmore girls." >> steve: yes. >> jimmy: i enjoy the way it's shot, directed, written, acted. i enjoy it. i don't want to know any of the business. hollywood business behind. >> steve: nothing behind the scenes. >> jimmy: no. amy sherman-palladino, a.s.p. was not there. [ laughter ] >> steve: for season seven? >> jimmy: a.s.p. [ laughter ] but she had the four words -- we were guessing, what are the four final words of "gilmore girls." the obvious ones are, "will you marry me." >> steve: right, sure. >> jimmy: too obvious. >> steve: no. >> jimmy: that's something amy -- a.s.p. would never do that. >> steve: no, a.s.p wouldn't stoop so low. >> jimmy: no, i mean, it should be a hashtag a.s.p., and your favorite aspm. >> steve: what do you think the last four words would be? >> jimmy: no, any four-word sentences. >> steve: oh. >> jimmy: well, i think it could be -- >> steve: i drank my invisible fifth. no, that's five words. >> jimmy: no, that's five words. you only do four words. you can do an invisible fifth word. which is probably "uh." >> steve: or "the." >> jimmy: i think it's "um." >> steve: umm. >> jimmy: my invisible fifth
words are, i think my words are, "i'll always be here." [ audience aws ] no, okay. [ laughter ] i think the four is, i think they might be, "i love you more." [ audience aws ] still invisible fifth word is, "um." but anyways, i can't wait to find out. i'm catching up, i've been watching every night. with my wife going to sleep, i watch "gilmore girls" to try to catch up. i just finished season four. rory's grown up. [ laughter ] >> steve: they grow up fast, man. >> jimmy: they grow up fast, man. [ laughter ] >> steve: they grow up so fast. >> jimmy: and dean's back in the mix. and i'm team jess, obviously. >> steve: totally. >> jimmy: i don't even know what's going to go down. but anyways, i have 60 episodes i have to get into it before next thursday, or next friday. [ laughter ] >> steve: that's not that many, you can do that. >> jimmy: so right now, it's average around seven episodes a a day. >> steve: seven episodes, that's not bad. >> jimmy: i think i can do it. >> steve: what do you need sleep for? they have those studies, you don't really need sleep. >> jimmy: thank you, thank you. anyways, i'm talking about the double gs, and talking my a.s.p.'s. you know. >> steve: yeah.
