The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Oh... oh... Seth, hi!
Seth Meyers: Now, uh, Worst Lady on an Airplane, I noticed right away you're wearing a neck pillow. Are you about to take a flight?
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Ohhh, I've been wearing it so long, I can no longer support my own head! Yes, the muscles have atrophied! Doctors call the condition "Baby Neck!"
Seth Meyers: Oh, no! So, I have to ask: Do you have any tips for people traveling this holiday season?

Seth Meyers: Okay! What else?
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Hmm... Tip #2: Plan you meals ahead of time. I'm not going to wait for the food cart to stop at every single row. Why take the local, when you can take the Panda Express?
Seth Meyers: Oh, no... You bring Chinese food on the plane?
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: No, Seth -- I bring it everywhere! I always get Chicken and Broccoli. I only eat the chicken, and I leave the broccoli on the tray table to cover up my farts!
Seth Meyers: That seems like a lateral move, smell-wise! What else?
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Well, Tip #4: If you want extra leg room, use my little secret: Set up shop IN THE BATHROOM! I turn that BITCH into my own SLEEPER CAR! You can bang on the door all you want, pal, there are NO vacancies at the Hotel Occupado!
Seth Meyers: Oh, boy...
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Yes! Yes! [ laughing ] Now, Tip #4: Bring Your Own Entertainment. I open my very own 28-inch Dell laptop. I plug in my headphones, and I just CACKLE at the top of my dang lungs! NOTHING is more relaxing than the sound of unexplained adult laughter! "Excuse me, Ma'am, can you keep it down?" "I don't know -- Can you make Monsters University less hilarious?!" Then, if they complain again, I just pop in a porn-oooo! That'll clear out the first row faster than you can say "Tuna and egg sandwich", which I also have in here!
Seth Meyers: Oh, no! You have a second meal?!
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: Yes! I'm very cool! Now, always ahow them who's boss. That's Tip #5. Now, I turn my phone OFF before take-off, but I continue to scream into it! When the stewardess comes by to reprimand me, I show her it's been off the whole time! SHE's the LOSER; now I HAVE THE POWER!!
Seth Meyers: Okay, you need to relax!
The Worst Lady on an Airplane: FINE!! If you need me, Seth, I'll be sleeping AND smoking in the bathroom!
Seth Meyers: I don't see any reason why I'll need you... The Worst Lady on an Airplane, everybody!
