Tina Fey: Last Sunday, twelve-and-a-half million Americans watched "The Sopranos" season finale on HBO. And right after that, creeps like me watched the HBO documentary "Cathouse", about the Moonlight Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada. Here now with a follow-up interview, two working girls from Moonlight Bunny Ranch - Coast Guard Carrie and Vidalis.
Coast Guard Carrie: Hi, Tina!
Vidalis: Hi, Tina! Hi, Jimmy!
Tina Fey: So now, from watching the documentary, it looks like most of the women really enjoy working at the Bunny Ranch.
Vidalis: Oh, we love it. I mean.. we're professionals. Tina. We're just like a sales team, except.. instead of getting commission, we get cold sores!
[ they laugh ]
Vidalis: Sorry, Tina. It's kind of an in-joke.
Tina Fey: I think we all got it, actually.. So, how many times a day do you have sex?
Vidalis: Oh, Tina, at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch, we don't call it sex; we call it a party!
Coast Guard Carrie: Yeahh.. we really wanna party with you..
Vidalis: Depending on how much you wanna spend, you can have a Missionary party.. or a Back Porch party.. a Mouth party..
Coast Guard Carrie: You can have a Toe party.. a Back of the Knee party.. You can pretty much name any part of the body, and then say "party", and we'll do it.
Tina Fey: Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but you guys make a lot of money working at the ranch, right?
Coast Guard Carrie: Oh, yeahhh.. we make, like, $10,000 a minute.
Tina Fey: Wow.. that's pretty good.
Coast Guard Carrie: And we're always looking for new girls, so you should really think about it, Tina.
Vidalis: And, Jimmy, come on down. Come on down - virgins get a discount!
Jimmy Fallon: What are you talking about?
Coast Guard Carrie: If you're a virgin.. you can have an Elbow party for the price of an Ear party.
Jimmy Fallon: What? Why are you telling me this for?
Tina Fey: He's a little shy about being a virgin. But.. what can I get him for.. [ retrieves loose change from her pocket ] ..this much?
Vidalis: Um.. a dollar-eighty? We could have.. [ thinking ] ..intercourse with him for three hours.
Tina Fey: Oh, great! The Bunny Ranch ladies, everyone!
Jimmy Fallon: [ weakly ] That was just a joke, you know.

While serving as the emcee for the New York Women In Film & Television luncheon this week, Rosie O'Donnell attacked Winona Ryder, saying that she has been "stealing things for ten years," and that "her last film sucked."
