Jimmy Fallon: Alright. Let’s see, uh.. Best Supporting Actress, who’s that?

Dame Maggie Smith: Uh, me – whether I win it or not.

Jimmy Fallon: Okay, understood. Uh.. Best Supporting Actor?

Dame Maggie Smith: Oh, without a doubt, Ian McKellen. Saint Ian! They’ve got to throw that old queen a bone sometime.

Dame Maggie Smith: You’re not gay, Jimmy, are you?

Jimmy Fallon: Oh, no.. but I.. uh.. Best Picture?

Dame Maggie Smith: Oh, who cares? By that time, I’ll be getting as high as a kite in the toilet with Helen Mirren!

Jimmy Fallon: Are you going to go to the after party?

Dame Maggie Smith: [bitterly] After party? I’d rather drink ink. [sweetly] But wish me luck. Mmm…kiss for luck, little Jimmy Fallon?

Maggie Smith leans back with a satisfied smile on her face ]

Jimmy Fallon: [ cracking up ] Maggie Smith, everybody! [ Maggie Smith waves and smirks before the camera cuts to Fey and Fallon. Tina tries to wipe the lipstick off Jimmy’s lips.

[chuckles and is now calm enough to get on with the rest of Update] Wow…

[ Tonya Harding suddenly runs onto the set, donned in boxing gloves ]

Tonya Harding: Yeah! What’s up, crybaby! [ sucker punches Paula on the shoulder ] Ah! You flinched! [ sucker punches some more ]

Tonya Harding: [ gung ho ] I’ll take on all y’all! Amy Fisher! Anna Nicole Smith! Michelle Kwan! The Bush Twins! Why don’t you bring it!!

Paula Jones: Uh.. I would not do this again.. because it did not turn out classy. But I will be driving the monster truck Borean over six school buses, sponsored by Skoal Bandit. Live on the World Wide Web, check it out, y’all!

Tina Fey: Alright, thanks. Time to go, ladies, thanks for coming out..

Tonya Harding: Hey, ya know what, Tina? You think you’re so great – with your glasses, and.. and, your glasses… I’m gonna kill you!

Tina Fey: Oh, really, yeah? Let’s do this!
