During his address, Gadhafi renewed his call for Isratine, which would be one state made up of Israelis and Palestinians, or, as it’s known here, Queens.

It’s three rivers of champagne flowing in Pittsburgh. You ever seen Carla Bruni? Man, it’s like Jay-Z said: Sarkozy got 99 problems, but the bitch ain’t, unh! I seen Sarkozy up in da club this week, making it rain Euros. Man, Sarkozy’s such a player, he makes Justin Timberlake look like Gerard Depardieu. Zuts alors! [ he jumps up and dances for a beat, then sits ] Incre-able!
Lots of protests outside the G-20 summit. It’s crazy, man. When I was growing up, if we was unruly like that, our mamas would beat us. Your mama would beat ya’ll, right? She’d pull out that belt. Y’all remember the belt? The chanel one? With the gold lame buckle? Man, she beat you so bad, your ass would be burning like the ovens at Au Bon Pain! Zuts alors! [ he jumps up again to dance, then sits ] Incre-able!
Speaking of international issues, you see what was popping at the UN this week, Seth? Lots of crazy ass speeches. We put Gadhafi on blast, though. You see how them diplomats walked out on him? Talking about how the U.S. and Europe are the terrorists. Bitch, take your ass back to your tent, and go back to spraying that jheri curl! You see Gadhafi’s jheri curl, Seth? It looks like his name should be Moammar DeBarge. Man, Gadhafi’s jheri curl is so greasy, brothers be using his hair drippings to fry up their pan crepes! Zuts alors! [ he jumps up to dance, as Seth moves with him ] Incre-able!
Zuts alors! I’m out!
Seth Meyers: Jean to the K to the Jean, everyone! Incre-able, as always! Always, incre-able.

Judy Grimes: It’s a chart. I brought it in case this happened…
Seth Meyers: Well, great! Okay, awesome! A chart. This will be helpful, okay. [ she holds up the homemade chart ] Do you have anything..? [ Judy pulls out a pointer ] Oh, good! Look at that, this is going to be great. You’re just going to walk us through it. [ she lengthens her pointer ] Don’t be nervous.
[ Judy hesitantly points her pointer to each incline on the chart ]

Just kidding — it does exist, but it’s only for scientists. Just kidding — it’s for farmers. Just kidding — I’m a farmer. I’m a cherry farmer! Just kidding — I’m cherry scientist. Just kidding — I’m not, I study grapes. Just kidding — grapes study me, and I’ve seen the reports. Just kidding — I have, but they’re locked away. Just kidding — the grapes are locked away because I put them in jail. Just kidding — they were found innocent. Just kidding — they were guilty, and I was the judge. All rise for the Honorable Judy Grimes — bang, bang, bang! Just kidding — I’m not really a judge, but I do like to boogie. Just kidding — I don’t know how to boogie, but I can tell a good joke: Knock knock. Who’s there? Just kidding. Just kidding — I’m there! Can you let me in? I forgot my keys and my hands are full of groceries. Just kidding — my hands are free, but the door’s locked. John, are you home? Just kidding — I live alone, I’m nowhere near my house. Just kidding — I’m in my house right now. Just kidding — we live together. Just kidding — Can you please do your dishes? I’m not your maid. Just kidding — travel… just kidding.
