Jimmy Fallon has been doing the late-night talk show thing for a startling amount of time now, having hosted Late Night from 2009 to 2013 and The Tonight Show from 2014 to present. And in that about seven-year span, there have been a lot of memorable guests and skits. We’ve narrowed down to six of our faves from Fallon’s time as the person to watch on weekday nights.

1. Donald Trump and Fuller House: In the most recent sketch on this list, having aired on February 16, Fallon plays current presidential candidate Donald Trump as a member of the Tanner household alongside the entire returning cast of Netflix’s upcoming reboot Fuller House. In the sketch, Fallon as Trump is scared about losing the election, but receives the kind of advice that only a returning sitcom can give.


2. Jimmy Fallon, Bayside Student:
Fuller House isn’t the first case of Jimmy Fallon integrating himself into a beloved ‘90s sitcom cast, having done something similar with Saved By the Bell about a year earlier. In this sketch, Fallon plays a new friend of Zack Morris’ (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and is present when the gang learns that Kelly (Tiffani Amber Thiessen) is pregnant. This was one of the most talked about reunion sketches on the show!

3. Tight Pants:
Three years ago, Fallon and Will Ferrell sang and then squabbled about wearing particularly form-fitting pairs of pants. The skit proved so popular that two more versions were done, one last year with Jennifer Lopez and then another with Ferrell and Christina Aguilera in mid-February of this year.

4. Hashtag:
Hashtags may be a popular—even important—part of social media, but most people have the common sense to realize that saying them out loud sounds really dumb (notice we said “most people”). Fallon and Justin Timberlake proved this point in a sketch that made clear the fact that Twitter conversations should stay on Twitter.


5. Joking Bad:
Would Breaking Bad have been even more successful if Walter White created jokes instead of crystal meth? Well, maybe not, but Fallon still shows a world where the comedy trade is the most dangerous in this re-enactment of parts of Breaking Bad seasons 1, 4, and 5. Also featured are cameos from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk in-character as Saul Goodman, and one other special guest who we won’t spoil.

6. Ew!:
A fictional Nickelodeon show, Fallon, Seth Rogen, and Zac Efron play teen girls who are very easy to displease but otherwise act like stereotypical teen girls, and we mean that in the most hilarious way possible. Like “Tight Pants,” the skit was beloved enough to be returned to a couple months later with Ariana Grande and even got a music video featuring will.i.am.
