[ cheers and applause ] ♪
that's so nice. this is a hot crowd. i love this, great new york city crowd right there. [ cheers and applause ] welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. that's me. hi. how are you doing, pal? nice to see you. first off, i just want to say happy birthday to tariq right there. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we're going to have a fun show tonight. here's what people are talking about. you guys, this whole government shutdown thing is still going on. it's just insane. last night president obama had an hour-long meeting with republicans and democrats and they still were unable to end the situation. so don't worry, while the shutdown is putting people out of work and costing people taxpayers millions of dollars, lawmakers did spend a whole hour trying to fix it. [ applause ] so we're trying. we're trying has hard as -- here's good news. this week disney world said it
would help its employees sign up for obama care. yeah. disney world -- they're going to help. so finally sneezy can get some claritin, sleepy can get some adderall and grumpy can get some prozac. [ cheers and applause ] they need it, those dwarfs. that's right, disney world said they'd help employees sign up for obama care. though it was awkward when they asked about pre-existing conditions and goofy was like, "syphilis." >> steve: say what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: um, i don't know how much you guys know about obama care, but the way it's supposed to work is that people can choose between several different price plans -- bronze, silver, gold and platinum. but if none of those work for you, president obama actually introduced a few other plans that are even cheaper. like, here's a few of them right here. and the coverage you can expect from these. first, we have the cubic zirconium plan.
instead of a detailed mole check, your dermatologist gives you a bottle of sunscreen and offers to "do" your back. i don't know what that means. do my back? next is the cement plan. makes it legal for you to take someone else's medication if they feel like they're done with it. i think i'm healthy now. want these pills? take it. after that there's the wood plan. with that one, the doctor just looks at you and goes, "eh, probably nothing." [ laughter ] next we have the what evs plan. that's where a cashier at walgreens guesses what's wrong with you. [ cheers ] "menopause? i don't know." and lastly, there's the cardboard plan. it's just a card with webmd.com on the front. that'll tell you what's wrong. some good options. people are still talking about
the big "breaking bad" finale last sunday. did you guys see that? that was great, wasn't it? [ cheers ] it was fantastic. i read today they're planning on making a spanish language version of "breaking bad" down in colombia. colombia, yeah. it's about a crazed man who builds an empire on the drug trade or as that's called in colombia, "the news." [ laughter ] this is nice, but i didn't even know about this place, but there's a toy hall of fame. did you guys know about that? yeah, a toy hall of fame in rochester, new york. i saw that the game clue and the magic eight ball are both finalists to be inducted this year. yeah. because if there's anything that defines the fun of toys, it's murder and a ball that crushes your dreams. isn't it? [ applause ] i don't know. i don't know what's the thing about this, but apparently kfc is coming out with a new to-go packet for its chicken that can fit in your car's cup holder. they say great for people on the go. though if you're someone who is
eating chicken out of the cup holder, do you really have to be anywhere? i mean -- [ laughter ] eating chicken out of a cup. >> steve: yeah, come on. >> jimmy: kfc is not the only one doing this now. other fast food restaurants are also releasing car-friendly products. take a look, taco bell is coming out with a new drinkable burrito. you have, popeye's is releasing original recipe drumsticks stick shift and pizza hut is coming out with the meat lover's pizza steering wheel, which should be great with a side of meatballs to go. on the go, got to get the food in there. >> steve: you've got to get it in. that's stuffed crust, too. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. i found this a little surprising here. a new study found that teenagers actually make better decisions than senior citizens. really? because last time i checked we didn't have any shows called "85 and pregnant." "i really got myself in some trouble this time." [ laughter ]
"i'm going to make a porno." [ laughter ] this is really interesting. i've been doing this for years, but now they've done some research and they found that because it makes you think positive thoughts throwing salt over your shoulder can actually prevent bad luck. yeah. or at least give you better luck than the guy behind you. it's like, "hey what's this?" "salt, man." and finally -- >> he was "a-salted." [ laughter ] [ rim shot ] >> jimmy: he was a-salted. >> steve: i didn't want to say it. >> jimmy: no, yeah. you didn't want to say it. you just had to. >> steve: i had to. >> jimmy: you had to, yeah. sorry. there you go. there you go. you're doing it for the country, that's good. i appreciate that, higgins. thank you. and finally, there's a theory out now that says the third year of marriage is the happiest. and the people who came up with this actually prepared a visual time lapse of what an average face looks like over the course of marriage year by year. here's what it looks after one
year. looks pretty happy. here is the same guy after two years of marriage. a little happier. here he is after three years looking very happy. and here's the same man after four years. [ laughter and applause ] we have great show tonight! give it up for the roots. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we have a great, great show tonight. we love it. she's going to be our neighbor soon. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: she's getting a daytime talk show and going to be actually shooting in this exact studio, yeah. it will be fun to have her as a neighbor. she's one of the best journalists out there. meredith vieira is stopping by. we love her.
