By the way that was a picture – that was a picture of our – of our staff and our amazing crew, lets have a hand for them because they — are amazing.
Ladies and gentlemen before we bring this rodeo to a close, I think a couple things should be said.
There’s been a lot of speculation in the press about what I legally can and can’t say about NBC. And this isn’t a joke. To set the record straight, and this is true, tonight I’m allowed to say anything I want. (One Man laughs)
Um, and no it’s not a joke, but thanks sir. Tonight I really am allowed to say whatever I want and what I want to say is this. Between my time at “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Night Show,” and my brief run here on “The Tonight Show,” I’ve worked with NBC for over 20 years. Yes, we have our differences right now, yes we’re going our separate ways, but this company has been my home for most of my adult life. I am enormously proud of the work we’ve done together. And I want to thank NBC for making it all possible. I really do. Uh… (Audience applauds)
Uh… A lot of people have been asking me about my state of mind and I’ll be honest with you, walking away from “The Tonight Show” is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Um, making this choice has been enormously difficult. This is the best job in the world. I absolutely love doing it and I have the best staff and crew in the history of the medium. I will fight anybody who says I don’t, but no one would. But despite this sense of loss, I really feel this should be a happy moment. Every comedian…every comedian dreams of hosting “The Tonight Show” and for seven months, I got to do it. And I did it my way with people I love. I do not regret one second of anything that we’ve done here. (Audience applause)
And yeah. And I encounter people when I walk on the street now who are just uh who give me sort of a sad look. I have had more good fortune than anybody I know. And if our next gig is doing a show in a 7-Eleven Parking lot we will find a way to make it fun. We really will. I have no problems. (Audience applauds) And, I don’t want to do it on a 7-Eleven parking lot. (Audience laughs)
But whatever, uh, finally I have something to say to our fans. This massive outpouring of support and passion from so many people has been overwhelming for me. The rallies, the signs, all this goofy outrageous creativity on the Internet uh, the fact that people have traveled long distances and camped out all night in the pouring rain. (Audience cheers)

It’s pouring! It’s been pouring for days and they’re camping out to be in our audience. Really, you…Here’s what all of you have done. You’ve made a sad situation joyous and inspirational. So to all the people watching I can never ever thank you enough for the kindness to me and I’ll think about it for the rest of my life. And all I ask is one thing…and this is…I’m asking this particularly of young people that watch…please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record, it’s my least favorite quality. It doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. I’m telling you. Amazing things will happen. (Audience claps) I’m telling you. It’s just true. As proof, let’s make something amazing happen right now. Here to close out our show here are a few good friends led by Mr. Will Ferrell.
