JEANNE FEY: Hi, I’m Jeanne Fey.
GLORIA FALLON: And I’m Gloria Fallon. Here are tonight’s top stores about our children.

 GLORIA: Actor Jimmy Fallon will appear in Band of Brothers, an HBO drama about a World War II. A source close to Fallon says “Good, maybe they will make him cut that crazy hair.”  In a related story, the movie is directed by Oscar winner, Tom Hanks, who is now a personal friend of Jimmy’s. He even calls our house all the time. Back to you Jeanne.
JEANNE
: Actress Tina Fey appeared in the April 7th issue of TV Guide. However, themagazine was not available in the Philadelphia area, because I bought them all and keep them in my kitchen.

 GLORIA: And now it’s time for a segment we call “That’s My Baby.”  This is Jimmy when he was nine years old. I always knew he would be an actor because he would put on his C3PO pajamas and sing all the songs from Annie.
FALLON: Mom, what are you saying?
GLORIA: What?
JEANNE: This is Tina when she was six months old. As you can see, even when she very little she only had one eyebrow.
FEY: Mom, nobody wants to see that.
GLORIA: Why? It’s so cute. You were a nice, hairy, Greek baby.
FALLON: You guys are supposed to be doing the news.
GLORIA: We are. Jimmy, this is so easy. I don’t know why you flub your lines all the time. Do you know they have them written on those big cards up there?
GLORIA: Just read the cards!

FALLON: I do, I do, I do read the cards.
FEY: I think he needs glasses.
FALLON: I don’t need glasses.
GLORIA: Jimmy, just get the glasses.
FALLON: I don’t need glasses.
JEANNE: If you need glasses, get them.
FALLON: I don’t need glasses.

FEY: Well, you do need glasses, but the point is you can’t just do news about us. 
GLORIA
: What else is there to talk about? Just look at this face… look at this baby face.
JEANNE: (hugging Tina) From these loins, a mother’s angel. Say my favorite part.
FEY: For Weekend Update, I’m Tina Fey.
FALLON: And I’m Jimmy Fallon.
FALLON & FEY: …saying Happy Mother’s Day and we love our mommies!

I remember my parents sneaking me in to see Young Frankenstein. We would also watch Saturday Night Live, or Monty Python, or old Marx Brothers movies. My dad would let us stay up late to watch The Honeymooners. We were not allowed to watch The Flintstones though: my dad hated it because it ripped off The Honeymooners. I actually have a very low level of Flintstones knowledge for someone my age.
