1. Jay said: When I first began hosting The Tonight Show … I used to pack up my things every night and take them home—I didn’t know if the show would be mine the next day.
I say: No one has ever done that.
2. Jay said: Years ago I lived in Boston, and when I saw a Mercedes/Rolls-Royce dealer, I thought, “I’d like to work there.” I asked about a job, but the boss said, “We’re not hiring now.” Monday morning, I returned. I went to the car-wash bay, said “I’m the new guy,” and started washing cars. After three or four days, the boss saw me and asked, “What’s he doing here?” The car-wash guy goes, “He’s a hard worker.” I said, “I figured I’d work here until you hired me.” And I got the job.
I say: This isn’t how jobs work.
3. Jay said: I’ve put a lot of work and thought into getting ready for hosting The Jay Leno Show.
I say: Nuh-uh.
