Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen — Jesse Eisenberg!
Jesse Eisenberg: Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. Thank you very much. Its so great to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. Its been a really exciting year for me, I was in The Social Network. Thank you very much. And Im also glad to be here tonight because, you know, in a few movies Ive played guys who are kind of shy and unassuming and thats just not me at all, you know, and as youll see tonight, Im… well Im really cocky, you know. In life, I just, you know I, I own it, you know. When I walk into a room, people are just like Wow wow watch out, who is that freight train of confidence?, or not, I dont know, I wouldnt want to pretend to be an expert on what other people are thinking, thats presumptuous of me, sorry, um, anyway although actually one, one thing I am an expert in is women, you know, I, no I do, I know, I know a lot about the ladies, you know, like for example, like I know that every 28 days females will shed their uterine lining, that is, no its true, thats true, so so you know that would be a thing like if I were, if I were out on a date, you know, with a lady, she wouldnt have to explain that to me, you know, cause I already know it, you know, cause Im so cocky! Yes, and I cant wait for the Oscars, you know, I am, Im gonna, Im gonna, oh okay, thank you, yes, yes, none of us can wait, and when I get there, Im going to take Jack Nicholsons seat in the front row and when he comes over to me Im just gonna say: Sorry Jack, you know, heres Jesse! No Im not, Im not gonna say that, no no, even thinking of saying something like that is kind of, was actually kind of giving me a panic attack right now, you know what, I feel like Im misrepresenting myself.
Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah, well, misrepresenting people is something you have a lot of practice with.
Jesse Eisenberg: Wow, Mark… Mark Zuckerberg, hey, how are you?
Mark Zuckerberg: Oh, how am I? Im bad, okay? You got nominated for an Academy Award for playing me, and what do I get, you know, what do I have to feel good about?
Jesse Eisenberg: Uh-ha, wasnt Facebook just valued at like 50 billion dollars?
Mark Zuckerberg: Oh thats right, yeah. Well, good luck at your dinky movie award thing. All hail the Zuck! Wooh hoo hoo!
