Gene Shalit: Hello, Jimmy! First, let me say this. Jackass: The Movie is a jackass of a movie! Hey, hey, you, you, get the jackass off of my screen! Don’t jack-ask me again, Michael Jack-ackson! Put away your shiny glove! This thriller is a dud! Billie Jean is not my lover, she’s just a girl who thinks that Jackass: The Movie isn’t worth saying, “Mama say, Mama sa, Mama kusa!”
Jimmy Fallon: Crazy.
Gene Shalit: Jimmy!
Jimmy Fallon: What?
Gene Shalit: Get the jackass out of your trunk and change the tire and drive your car away from this movie!
Jimmy Fallon: I am so lost, I mean, what on earth are you . . .
Gene Shalit: Jimmy! A little ditty about Jackass and I end, to an American movie doing the worst it can as a movie!
Jimmy Fallon: Okay, I think we get the idea. You didn’t like Jackass. Have you seen anything else? How about “Ghost Ship”?
Gene Shalit: [pauses] Ghost Ship? More like a steaming pile of Ghost Ship? Who ya gonna call? Ghost Ship Busters! [starts laughing] If you call me up . . . I am afraid of this Ghost Ship, Jimmy!
Jimmy Fallon: You’re not in your Today Show studio. You know, we have microphones, you don’t need to yell so much.

Jimmy Fallon: I know. Do you dye your mustache as well?
Gene Shalit: I dye everything!
Jimmy Fallon: How about the movie “The Ring”? Did you see “The Ring”? That’s supposed to be pretty good.

Jimmy Fallon: All right, okay, that’s good.
Gene Shalit: Ring around the collar! I say, skid marks in my drawers! When “The Ring” is in my theater . . .
Jimmy Fallon: Okay, we get it, we got it.
Gene Shalit: I got some more about Jackass, Jimmy!
Jimmy Fallon: I think we’ve had enough, actually.
Gene Shalit: Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jackass nipping at your theater! Merry Christmas? I say, Merry Don’t-count-me-in-the crot-of-this-movie, ISTA-MIS! Jackass!
Jimmy Fallon: “Istmas?” You gotta put some more effort into your songs!
Gene Shalit: HIT IT! [Gene Shalit gets up, music starts, and he dances around flailing his arms and making faces.]
Jimmy Fallon: What’s going on? This is crazy. What is he doing? Why is he doing this? He’s lost his mind!
Gene Shalit: When the movie stinks, it has no story! Then you’re watching “Jack-the-ass: The Movie! [resumes dancing]

Tina Fey: According to reports, Phil Collins has been going deaf for the past 2 years and may have to give up touring.
Jimmy Fallon: No, no, noâ¦that’s not what I heard. I heard that he witnessed this deaf guy murder this other deaf guy [“In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins plays] and then he invited the murderer to his concert and now he’s pretending to be deaf to trick him.[Jimmy and Tina bob their heads to the music, then it stops.]
Tina Fey: Yeah.

You know Tina, I gotta tell you that Jay-Z was pretty great, right, Jay-Z? He’s awesome, he’s a good dude, a very good rapper. I’ll tell you what, I like the guy. My favorite guy in the group is that guy Baby K.
Tina Fey: Baby-K, which one is Baby-K?
Jimmy Fallon: He’s the little guy, he’s like 2 months old, he wears gold chains.
Tina Fey: I didn’t see Baby-K. I didn’t see that guy.
Jimmy Fallon: Actually, I got to know him pretty well. I could possibly persuade him to sing a song with his new joint. Baby K, come here for a second. [Jimmy jumps over the Update desk, puts Baby K on the desk, and returns]
Tina Fey: Oh there he is, he’s so cute. Hi Baby-K.
Baby-K: Gimme a beat! (rapping)
I’m gonna get this party started, this party started, started
I’m gonna get this party started, this party started, started

I’m-a, I’m-a, I’m-aâ¦mama, mama, mama, mama, mamaâ¦
I’m gonna get this party started, this party, party started. Word!
Jimmy Fallon: Baby-K everybody. (he goes and picks Baby-K up and takes him off the desk, he goes and sits down again)
