The Tonight Show: At Home Edition (Hashtags: #QuarantineQuotes)

-Welcome to “The Tonight Show:At Home Edition.

” My name is Jimmy Fallon, and I am going to use a kind of teleprompterright now.

And I'll take a pictureof what I'm seeing so you know what I'm seeing, just so we can try to getthrough the monologue.

We'll do the monologuelike this.

But, anyways, this is our show.


We have a great show.

Alex Rodriguez is here, “A-Rod, “Rhett and Link, music from Tones and I.

But, first, let's get to somejokes here, everybody.

Well, I'm so excited abouttonight's show because we are filmingthe entire thing from Roger Goodell's basement.

That's right — tonight wasnight one of the NFL Draft, and this year, the commissioner announced the picks from his basement.

And, of course, right when he started talking, someone started vacuuming.

“Do you have to do that now?” Hey!” That's right –tonight was the NFL draft.

You know things are nuts whenthe most exciting sports moment in six weeks is a guyin his basement reading names off an index card.

Yeah, it was a virtual draft, which got pretty frustrating when players would be anxiouslysitting at home and hear, “The New England Patriotsselect.



” [ Audio cutting out ] Congratulations.

” “Who did he say?Was it me? Was it me? Did you –My phone's not ringing.

” This year's draft was supposedto take place in Las Vegas, but the NFL didn't want to putpeople's health in danger.

That's how crazy things are.

The NFL is more concernedabout health than the mayor of Las Vegas.

That's right — everyone wastalking about this yesterday.

Anderson Cooper interviewedthe mayor of Las Vegas, who wants to reopen the city, and this imagepretty much sums it up.

Yeah, the mayor wants to openLas Vegas back up, and she's even come up witha few slogans that will help encouragetourists to come back.

For example, there's “Vegas –the stakes just got higher.

” Then there's”Vegas — it's a gamble.

” Next, there's “Viva Las Virus.

” There's also, “Vegas — hotgames, cold drinks, dry coughs.

” And, finally, “Vegas, where'Ocean's Eleven' meets COVID-19.

” Well, good luckto everyone involved.

Listen to this.

I saw that the first-everYouTube video was posted 15 years ago today.

The first comment was, “Love it.

” The next was, “How cool.

” And the third began a15-year argument over politics.

Well, this isn't good.

I saw that Chipotle just agreedto pay $25 million in food-safety fines.

Ah! Remember the good old dayswhen the only deadly viruses were in the lettuce at Chipotle? I saw that the toy company Tyhas debuted a new Beanie Baby to raise money for thecoronavirus recovery efforts.

It's a great ideathat's expected to bring in millions of dollarsin the year 1995.

Check this out.

I heard that tie-dye is becoming a big quarantine fashion trend.

It's awkward whena co-worker asks, “Are you wearing tie-dye?”, and you go, “No, this is ketchup, mustard, relish, and Cheeto? Cheeto.

” And, finally, I saw thatthe coronavirus lockdown is increasing the demand forvideo-game coaches.


If you think people who sitaround playing video games all day is out of shape, imagine their coaches.

That's our monologue, everybody.

Now it's time for “Hashtags.

” ♪♪ -♪ “Hashtags” ♪ ♪ “Hashtags” ♪ -As I said, we have a great show tonight.

Also, we have our palsRhett and Link, who I miss so much.

“Good Mythical Morning.

” YouTube superstarsRhett and Link will be on.

And we have great, great musicfrom Tones and I, who — Of course, she sings “Dance Monkey, ” which was the biggest thingthat we've, I think, had on our show, virally.

Ooh, I can't even say”virally” anymore.

Popularity-wise? Should I start over?-No.

-Yeah, okay.

I don't know what to say.

I don't know — It's the biggestthing that we've had on our show, with like80 million hits on YouTube.
