[ cheers ] great. me, too. and you know, one thing i've really noticed lately is that men and women are totally different. they almost never see eye to eye. in fact, sometimes they can be in the exact same situation and be thinking two totally different things. what kind of things are men and women thinking? let's find out together in a segment we call "he said, she said."
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: now, you guys might not realize this, but i have a real knack for telling what's on people's minds. i don't like to brag about it, but i'm kind of psychic that way. like, for example -- take a look at this. here we see a man and a woman spending time outdoors. they're having a rest, taking a drink there. you can tell by looking that this man, he's thinking, "this water will get me through the rest of the hike." the woman's thinking something very different. she's thinking, "this vodka will get me through the rest of this date." [ laughter ] two people, very different viewpoints. here's another example. an older couple. posing for a photo, enjoying their golden years together. i can tell that she's thinking, "after all of these years, we still have fun together." and he's thinking, "after all these years, we still get mistaken for frodo and gandalf." [ laughter and applause ] >> it's a good time for them. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah.
let's keep going. oh, this is precious. a couple getting their house ready for christmas. she's thinking, "i wonder if we have enough decorations." he's thinking, "i wonder if 'hoarders' does wreath-related episodes." [ laughter ] i'd watch that. >> i would. >> jimmy: here's another one here. this is a man helping a woman exercise. nice. he's thinking, "this is supposed to stretch your calves." she's thinking, "this is supposed to be a dentist appointment." [ laughter ] you gotta watch. [ applause ] go online and make sure they're good -- let's see another one here. oh, yeah. here's a young couple on the couch together. they're both under the weather. she's thinking, "no fun having a cold." he's thinking, "it's so fun huffing paint thinner." here -- look at this. you see a lady crawling on top of a table towards a guy. it looks intense. she's thinking, "are you thinking what i'm thinking?"
and he's thinking, "yes, we th need chairs." [ laughter ] very important. >> very uncomfortable. >> jimmy: standing. moving on, here's a husband and wife dressed for a fancy occasion. she's thinking, "i feel like i've known you forever." and he's thinking, "i feel like we're in a made-for-tv movie about hugh grant and j. lo. [ laughter ] i would see that movie. >> i would, too. >> jimmy: another good one. let's do another one here. here's an older couple snuggling in bed. she's thinking, "50 years later, and we still make love." and he's thinking, "yeah, the only difference is now it's now totally gross." [ laughter ] get the image -- just get the image out. moving on here. here's a couple nervously looking at their laptop together. she's thinking, "i can't watch. i'm too nervous." and he's thinking, "i never thought watching the domino's pizza tracker could be this intense." [ laughter ] it's been put in the oven. doug put it in. >> doug put it in the oven.
>> jimmy: here's the last one here. a couple posing in their workout attire. both in very, very good shape there. he's thinking, "we're james and robin. we'll get you in shape." she's thinking, "i'm james." [ laughter ] that's all the "he said, she said" we had time for. stick around. we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody.

i usually try to keep my clothes on while i have intercourse too by the way which is a whole other issue. my body is falling apart. >> jimmy: that's awful. >> it's a religious thing too. not really, i came in naked the other night and my joyce has a great body. i ran in and put the lights off and she put them on and she's very funny and then she started pointing at my behind. because -- i haven't looked at my behind in 30 years. i looked in one of those three-way mirrors, it looked like the appalachian mountains, it's unbelievable and my wife has to sleep with this? she started pointing like scrooge seeing his grave, i swear to god. and she stood up, jimmy. she stood up and she went, you should see what i see. to my ass. >> jimmy: why is she doing this? >> and i'm supposed to have, you know. but she's mature. i mean, the ex-girlfriend, the young one, i broke up with a girl who was 24 and she called me, she wanted to return her orgasms for three years. [ laughter ] >> but the thing that really -- i got to just share this with you, is i love music, it's been my mantra, for me.
rock and roll. and i love great classical and great jazz. >> jimmy: who do you like? >> the greats. i'm a classic rock guy, i can't get out of that head. and when you do your stuff, here's the thing that trips me out. is that when you know when i was a kid, growing up with the stones, i'm not a name-dropper, or anything. you know everybody now. when bruce comes on, everybody -- it must be a trip. >> jimmy: it's unbelievable. >> it's unbelievable. so i, i've got, when bands start when they're eight years old. they're in a band. i'm getting bar mitzvahed at 13 years. so you know, it takes them 25 years for them to catch up with who i am. >> jimmy: yeah, exactly. >> if you're lucky and you make it. okay. so, i got to meet all of these people. so, the one show -- one night -- and i'm really close friends with ronnie woods. 25 years. >> jimmy: legendary. >> so he invited me to stay within the dressing room. dig this, in the small venue where the stones are great. 2,000 people. just the stones. and keith, who i can't do it, i got no idea what you're talking about. he's naked, scars all over him. i have no idea.
i love him. he adores comedy by the way. he's a genius. he loves comedy. and i love keith. but anyway, i'm there and he's not a junkie any more. but he was the most legendary junkie in the history of the world, right? >> jimmy: of course. >> so, i'm standing there and i reach, even the stones have crappy platters. you think it's only comedians. the stones. >> jimmy: the vegetables -- >> the stones -- the crap would -- praying mantis having intercourse on the crotons. it's unbearable. these are the stones. so, i reach for some cheese, and of all people, keith -- keith richards, he says don't eat cheese. that's a bad impression, obviously. >> jimmy: i thought it was fantastic. if you close your eyes. >> oh come on, it sounded like that could have been dom deluise, rest his soul. so, you know what he says to me? "don't eat cheese." i said, "why not?" he says, "it's bad for your cholesterol."
