Also revealed that he kept a Soupy Sub Sandwich at the studio sent to him by a lady from Rhose Island in 1993. Johansson was astounded when Leno produced the antique sandwich along with a bottle of 'brown' tomato ketchup.
20The final guest on his run of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) was successor Conan O'Brien and the musical guest was James Taylor.
21The first guest on The Jay Leno Show (2009) was Jerry Seinfeld and the musical segment comprised of an ensemble performance by Jay Z, Rihanna and Kanye West.

34During the Michael Jackson trial in February of 2005, Jay Leno had been subpoenaed to testify at the trial. Judge Rodney S. Melville issued a "gag order" barring anyone involved in the case from discussing it outside court, and the comedian feared that the order would apply to his monologues on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992). He was allowed to write the jokes but not tell them. To get around this order, Leno called on his fellow comedians to tell the jokes he wrote for him. Some of these people included Brad Garrett, Scott 'Carrot Top' Thompson, Roseanne Barr, Dennis Miller, and Drew Carey. They came out and told the jokes while Leno stood beside them on stage. On March 11, 2005, the judge had the gag order lifted. In a statement, he explained, "I am not attempting to prevent anybody from making a living in the normal way that they make their living," adding that Leno may not talk about the specific things to which he is a witness.
35Although Leno's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) predecessor Johnny Carson appeared on rival late night talk show Late Show with David Letterman (1993) twice (in a walk-on stage appearance soon after Letterman's show debuted, and later in a filmed segment), Carson never once appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) with his successor. Many, including Leno, took this as a sign that "Johnny likes Dave more" and would have preferred David Letterman to have been his "Tonight Show" replacement.
36He stepped down as host of the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) in 2009. His replacement was NBC Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) host Conan O'Brien.

38Is one of the few owners of the McLaren F1 supercar.

40Is a "seasoned" Monopoly player; likes to play with real money and the "race car" is his favorite playing piece.
41In May 2003, he hosted NBC's morning talk show Today (1952). In a May sweeps promotion, "Today" show host Katie Couric, in turn, hosted The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992).
42Had guests sign one of his Harley Davidsons (the first being Arnold Schwarzenegger), after which the bike was auctioned off with the money going to help victims of the September 11th attacks.
43Under the teacher's comments of Jay's 5th-grade report card read, "If Jay spent as much time studying as he does trying to be a comedian, he'd be a big star."
44Growing up in Massachusetts, he suffered from dyslexia.
45Jay's paternal grandparents were Italian. His mother was Scottish (born in Greenock, Scotland).
46A 1972 graduate of Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
47Met his wife while performing at a comedy club in Los Angeles. Mavis was in the audience, and she laughed at all his jokes at the right time.

49Owns over 170 classic cars and over 150 motorcycles. His very first automobile was a 1934 Ford V-8 truck, which he restored himself at the age of 14.

#Quote
1Happy birthday to Hugh Hefner. He just turned 88. You might remember, a year-and-a-half ago he married his 26-year-old fiancée, Crystal Harris. Or, as she calls it, bed-panning for gold.
2[Advice to young comedians when starting out] Comedy is like going to college, you do it for four years, then you graduate, then you start getting stand up jobs. You have to look at it like any other job, if you went to work for a big company, you would start in the mail room for a year, maybe nine months if you're exceptional, then you move up.
3If God had wanted us to vote He would have given us candidates.
4Some sad news: President George W. Bush's lapdog passed away. Gee, I didn't even know Tony Blair was sick.
5This week, Britney Spears sent out invitations for her marriage to Kevin Federline. But those aren't really invitations, those are more like season tickets. Once you have one, you get to go to all her weddings until January.
6[on NBC replacing Conan O'Brien with Jay Leno after only seven months of his tenure hosting "The Tonight Show"] -- Conan got screwed. I got screwed. This is TV. The reason show business pays a lot of money is so when you get screwed you've got something left over.
7Riding a Ducati is like having sex with an aerobics instructor - you know, I'm exhausted and panting and it's going: 'Are you done, already?'
8My dad's idea of a good time is to go to Sears and walk around.
9The best way to ruin a comedy is to throw a lot of money at it.
10People don't mind if you have a lot of money if they know you're working for it.
11"You cannot be mad at somebody who makes you laugh...it's as simple as that."Woman's World (7-4-06)
12I see that Mike Tyson has just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It marks the first time that Mike Tyson has made it to Chapter 11 in anything.
13[on the now-defunct XFL] "Ratings for the XFL are so low that pretty soon they'll be able to address the viewers by name."
14[on the steering for his jet-powered motorcycle] "It's kinda like square-dancing with a fat lady: the fact that she does it at all is pretty amazing."
15The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin.
16Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Teach a man to create an artificial shortage of fish and he will eat steak.
17You aren't famous until my mother has heard of you.
18It is said that life begins when the fetus can exist apart from its mother. By this definition, many people in Hollywood are legally dead.
19The reason there are two senators for each state is so that one can be the designated driver.
20"Seems there's a big debate going on about whether a new TV commercial for Minute Maid orange juice portrays Popeye and Bluto as gay lovers or just good friends. The commercial shows Popeye and Bluto at the beach and riding a bicycle for two. I don't think that makes them gay. I think the fact they both find Olive Oyl attractive, that makes them gay." (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), June 4, 2001)
21"In France, they're having trouble translating a lot of Internet terms into French. In France the law is you have to use French words. For example, there are no French words for surfing the Web, there aren't any French words for chat session, and there aren't any French words for hacker. Of course, a lot of other words don't translate to French either: military victory, deodorant..." (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), May 4, 2001)
22"President James Garfield could write in Latin with one hand while writing in Greek with the other. I would give my right arm to be ambidextrous." (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), March 9, 2001)
23"I saw something stupid in the paper today - a new alarm clock that makes no noise. It's for people who don't like loud noises. Instead, it slowly hits you with light and gets brighter and brighter until you wake up. I already have one of those...it's called a window." (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), February 14, 2001)
24"Looks like Darva 'Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?' Conger (Darva Conger) will pose naked in 'Playboy' Magazine. She says the photos will be tastefully done. And who else knows more about taste than a woman who marries a man she just met on Fox?" (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), May 8, 2000).
25They always say the Miss America Pageant isn't a beauty contest, it's really a scholarship program. If that's the case, why don't we just put all the contestants on Jeopardy! (1984) and pick Miss America that way? At least you get the smartest one.
26A new medical study reports that men who eat ten pizzas a week are less likely to develop prostate problems at age 50. That's because they are usually dead by age 40.

29"A historic operation occurred over in Boston. Doctors successfully transplanted tissue from a pig's brain to a man's brain -- and the man's brain did not reject it. That pretty much confirms what women have been saying about men" (From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), April 25, 1995).
