A Special Address from the Secretary of the Treasury
Timothy Geithner…..Will Forte
[ open on Department of Treasury Seal ]
Announcer: The following is a special address from the Secretary of the Treasury.
[ dissolve to Timothy Geithner, seated behind desk ]
Timothy Geithner: Good evening. I’m Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury. Earlier this week, I reported to you the results of the so-called “stress tests” my department ran on the nation’s nineteen largest banks. This was an effort to determine each bank’s fiscal soundness, following last September’s $700 billion federal bailout. Tonight, I would like to reveal to you, the American people, the results of Part 2 of the Stress Test, the written exam, taken by all nineteen bank CEOS last Saturday.
[ reveal Stress Test cover page graphic ]
Initially, my department had planned to give each bank a numerical grade of 1 to 100 — 100 being a perfect score. But then we decided that might unfairly stigmatize banks who scored low on the test because they followed reckless lending practices or were otherwise not good at banking. So we changed to a simple “PASS/FAIL” system. However, on reflection, a few of us felt that THAT system was too rigid, so we changed it once again to “PASS/PASS*”. This seemed less judgmental and more inclusive. Eventually, at the banks’ suggestion, we dropped the asterisk and went with a “PASS/PASS” system. Tonight, I am proud to say that, after the written tests were examined, every one of the nineteen banks scored a “PASS”! Congratulations, banks!
But that’s no reason to just rest on our laurels. There’s always room for improvement. NONE of the bank answered all fifty questions correctly, and most got less than half right. One bank in particular — CitiGroup — seemed to think the whole thing was just a big joke.
[ reveal test sheet with repeated answers of “Geithner Sucks!” written on it ]
Shame on you, CitiGroup! And this is a serious matter. I was DEEPLY disappointed with CitiGroup’s attitude towards this entire project. And, frankly, if CitiGroup weren’t too big to fail, I would have failed them. That’s how DISGUSTED I was. But apart from CitiGroup — who are a bunch of smart ass punks — the other banks at least took the test seriously. And since we can all learn from our mistakes, I thought we’d take a moment to look at the most commonly missed questions:
[ reveal test sheets throughout ]
#11: “For every ten million in commercial loans outstanding, a bank should have…”
The answer were were looking for was “10% Cash On Hand.” J.P. Morgan Chase wrote: “Knicks Tickets.” Wells Fargo wrote: “Gulfstream Jet.” And CitiGroup, of course, wrote: “Geithner Sucks!” Grow up, CitiBank.
Question 23 also stumped several banks: “If Federal Bank Examiners determine your bank to be under-capitalized, the Bank’s Board of Directors should…”
Goldman Saks wrote: “Flee the Country.” State Street of Boston said: “Shred Documents.” And Capitol One said: “Eliminate Eyewitnesses.” Actually, none of these is correct. The correct answer is: “Issue Common Stock.”
Now, Question 30, which most banks got wrong, really has no one correct answer since it would vary with each bank. We asked: “In the event of a nationwide run on the banks, how much in total cash assets does your bank have on hand to pay depositors?…”
Bank of America wrote: “Not enough, that’s for sure!!!” CitiGroup said: “Geithner Sucks!” And GMAC answered: “TaxPayer Bailout.” As you’ll notice, that last answer doesn’t make sense, and that’s because GMAC apparently answered “TaxPayer Bailout” to every one of the fifty questions. Although, that did turn out to be the right answer to thirty of them.
Question 41 tripped up a few banks: “Given their historic underrepresentation in banking, women should be encouraged to enter the field, as long as they are…”
Obviously, we were looking for “Qualified.” Morgan Stanley wrote: “Doable.” Bank of New York Mellon said: “Immediate Family Members.” And CitiGroup wrote: “Hey Geithner, WE’VE got a job for your MOTHER!!” Now, I don’t know if they’re serious about that job or not, but I think my mother would be really pumped.
Finally, what was the most difficult question? Apparently, this one from the Multiple Choice section:
“Banking executives should be given special financial bonuses for…” A) Good performance B) Mediocre performance C) Poor performance”
The correct answer is A. “Good Performance.” Surprisingly, A:: nineteen banks got this wrong. [ he shrugs ] Who knew?
Well, thank you for your kind attention. Together, we’ll get through this. And “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”

Robin Gibb: [disinterestedly] No, no I don’t.
Barry Gibb: Nancy Pelosi, do you agree with chairman Bernanke’s rosy assessment of our (falsetto) FINANCIAL FUT-AH?
Nancy Pelosi: I do, Barry, but it’s also important that we discover the causes of our current situation, and the first step is the formation of an impartial investigatory committee.
Barry Gibb: (as Robin bows his head in disappointment) A committee?! That’s your answer to the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression?! Are you out of your mother-loving, dope-smoking (falsetto) HIPPIE MI-I-IND?!

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen — Seth Rogen!
Seth Rogen: Thank you! Thank you very much! It is GREAT to be back here hosting “Saturday Night Live”. I’m really excited — I have a new movie coming out called “Observe and Report”. It’s a really funny movie about a mall cop.
Uh, this is my second time hosting, and it’s really — it’s amazing how different things are since I was here last. Uh, for one thing… I lost about one million pounds. [ the audience laughs and cheers ] Another thing is, I feel way more prepared this time. I learned so much since the last time I hosted. Like, for instance: now I know that the head guy’s name is pronounced “Lorne”. Not “Lauren”, or “Laura”. Because those are girl’s names. “Lorne”, on the other hand, is a man’s name. A very normal man’s name.
What else? Oh! Uh, here’s something different. Um — the first time you host, the writers spend a LOT of time working on your monologue. The second time, they get lazy and they tell you to take questions from the audience. So, here we go. [ points to an audience member ] Yes? Uh… you.
Audience Member 1: Hi. Uh, I just want to say I think you look great.
Seth Rogen: Thanks! Thank you! Thank you so much!
Audience Member 1: Did you lose all of that weight after you shot “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”?
Seth Rogen: Uh… I was not in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”.
Audience Member 1: Oh. I thought you said you were in a mall cop comedy?
Seth Rogen: I am, uh… it’s a completely different mall cop movie.
Audience Member 1: You’re in a second mall cop movie? [ she laughs ] Okay! Good luck with that!
Seth Rogen: Thank you very much…
Audience Member 2: Hey, over here!
Seth Rogen: Yes. Uh… you?
Audience Member 2: Yeah, I just want to start out by saying that I’m really excited to see you in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”!
Seth Rogen: [ he laughs ] That’s great, but, like I said, I’m not in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”!
Audience Member 2: Yeah, I know.
Seth Rogen: [ befuddled ] You have a question?
Audience Member 2: No. [ he sits ]
Audience Member 3: [ a pizza delivery guy ] Hey, man! You remember me?
Seth Rogen: Yeah! Actually, I do! You look familiar, man!
Audience Member 3: The delivery guy who used to bring you pizza every night?
Seth Rogen: Oh! yeah, yeah! How’s it going, man?
Audience Member 3: Bad! It’s going bad! I don’t know if you’ve heard, but we’re in the middle of a recession! Not a good time for your best customer to decide to get healthy!
Seth Rogen: Oh. Um… I’m really sorry, man. But what do you want me to do about that?
Audience Member 3: Bailout! I want you to pay me for what you would have spent this month.
Seth Rogen: Okay… fine. How much is that?
Audience Member 3: $3,500.
Seth Rogen: [ bewildered ] $3,500 for pizza?!
Audience Member 3: I’m also your WEED dealer.
Seth Rogen: [ siganls him to “cool out” ] Okay! Okay, I’ll give you that. I’ll give you that after the show.
Audience Member 3: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Thanks, Slim.
Seth Rogen: Alright, so… I guess not everyone is happy I lost the weight!
Audience Member 4: Yeah, I’ll say!
Seth Rogen: [ amused ] Who are you?
Audience Member 4: Hi, uh, my name is, uh, Matt Bankford. I used to tell girls I was Seth Rogen, in effort to sleep with them! Okay? But, now, I can’t do that! ‘Cuase now, when I tell girl I am Seth Rogen, she says, “You CAN’T be Seth Rogen! You’re TOO FAT!!” And what exactly did I do to deserve that kind of cruelty?
Seth Rogen: Uh, I’ll tell you: you lied about your identity to sleep with women. So…
Audience Member 4: Touche.
Seth Rogen: Yeah!
Audience Member 4: [ he sits next to an attractive babe ] Hey! What’s your name?
Audience Member 4: Hi! I’m Se– [ stops, reconsiders ] I’m Jonah Hill. [ he slyly wraps his around her ]
Seth Rogen: Well, I’m glad to see that he landed on his feet. And I’m glad to be back. Phoenix is here. So, stick around, we’ll be right back!
