>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

FOLKS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

AS WE HAVE ALREADY DISCUSSED

THOROUGHLY TONIGHT THE BIG

STORY IS OUR NEW NATIONAL

SECURITY STATE.

AND I AM ON RECORD AS BEING

FINE WITH GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE.

IN FACT, I WANT TO GO ON

RECORD RIGHT NOW.

I'M FINE WITH IT.

(LAUGHTER)

NOTHING, FOLKS S OUT OF

BOUNDS WHEN IT COMES TO

KEEPING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

SAFE.

THAT'S WHY I WANT TO COMMEND

THE TSA FOR RECENTLY DOING

WHAT THEY HAD TO DO TO FOIL

A HIGH PROFILE FUGITIVE WHO

ASSOCIATES WITH KNOWN

SMUGGLERS.

I AM TALKING, OF COURSE,

ABOUT CHEWBACCA.

JIM.

>> CHEWBACCA IN THE STAR

WARS MOVIES WAS BRIEFLY

STOPPED BY THE TSA AT THE

DENVER AIRPORT BECAUSE OF

HIS CANE WHICH KIND OF LACKS

LIKE A LIGHT SABRE.

THE TSA SAYS THE UNUSUAL

WEIGHT OF THE CANE GOT THE

OFFICER'S ATTENTION.

>> Stephen: YES, PETER

MAYHEW WAS DETAINED.

NOW YOU MAY SAY THIS WAS AN

UNNECESSARY OVERREACH BUT I

FOR ONE AM RELIEVED THE TSA

HAS FINALLY JOINED THE

EMPIRE IN THEIR FIGHT

AGAINST THE REBEL ALLIANCE.

WHO WE ALL KNOW-- WHO WE ALL

KNOW WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO

OVERTHROW A DUALLY ELECTED

EMPEROR PALPATINE.

NO, JIMMY, NOT MITCH

McCONNELL.

PUT UP PALPATINE, OH, MY

MISTAKE, OKAY.

NOW SOME ALDERAAN HUGGERS

OUT THERE MIGHT SAY THAT

THIS GUY, PETER MAY

SHOE-- MAYHEW IS MERELY AN

ACTOR WHO PLAYED CHEWBACCA

IN THE STAR WAS-- STAR WARS

MOVIE BUT THINK ABOUT, IT,

WOULDN'T THAT BE THE BEST

UNDERCOVER DISDUCE FOR

CHEWBACCA.

DON'T BELIEVE ME?

JUST LOOK AT MAYHEW'S

LUGGAGE.

AND FOLKS T SHOULDN'T BE

JUST TSA, ALL GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES SHOULD BE ON THE

LOOKOUT FOR THESE REBEL-- I

SAY I SHOULD INVESTIGATE

C-3PO.

THE GUY SOUNDS FOREIGN TO

ME.

I MEAN SERGIO, JULIO,

THREEPIO.

COULD BE A SPACE MEXICAN.

AND HEALTH AND HUMAN

SERVICES SHOULD AT LEAST BE

INVESTIGATING YODA FOR

FRAUD.

I MEAN 900 YEARS OLD?

MILKING SOCIAL SECURITY, HE

HE-- DRY, HE IS.

(APPLAUSE)

RIGHT BACK, WE'LL BE.
