You'll Laugh Right Along With Kerry Washington And Jimmy Fallon In 'Mad Lib Theater'

"He has to raise his belly button."

Kerry Washington may be finishing her role as Olivia Pope on Scandal soon, but we think we just found a new job for her — acting in Jimmy Fallon's "Mad Lib Theater." She joined the Tonight Show host for the fun game on Wednesday night, and we were laughing right along with them as they recited their ridiculous lines.

First, they have to come up with the silliest dialogue for their scene. Fallon asks Washington to think up everything from a name you might give a cat ("Fluffy Girl") to a chain restaurant (Olive Garden, obviously). Then they act out a scene featuring these words and try to keep a straight face.


Previous "Mad Lib Theater" installments have covered everything from police interrogations to weird date nights. This time, Washington plays a teacher telling parent Fallon about his trouble-making son. Washington really gets into the role, putting on an accent and adjusting her oversized glasses.

"I want to talk to you about your son, little Coconut," Washington tells him. "I've been a teacher for many years, and I've never seen such a fuzzy child."

They go on to discuss the importance of raising one's belly button before speaking, and Fallon announces his intention to read Harry Potter and the Ladies of the Night with his son. All the while, they can't keep from cracking up — and neither can we.
