The Meyers and Ashe Families Face Off in the Newlywed Game


-Welcome back to “Late Night.” It’s time for
“The Newlywed Game”! [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ Where three couples compete
to find out who knows each other best. Let’s meet our contestants. She’s a retired schoolteacher,
and he will tell you the same story
twice in one night. [ Laughter ] Please welcome Seth’s parents,
Hilary and Larry Meyers. [ Cheers and applause ] She’s a lawyer
and a mother of two, and he didn’t learn how to
snap his fingers until college and still can’t whistle. Please welcome
Alexi and Seth Meyers. [ Cheers and applause ] Come on, Seth.
[ Fingers click ] Everyone quiet down. Give us a whistle. [ Blowing ]
[ Laughter ] Good job.
[ Laughter ] And, finally, she founded
an international nonprofit, and he sometimes sings karaoke
in his living room by himself. Please welcome Alexi’s parents,
Tom and Joan Ashe. [ Cheers and applause ] All right.
Now let’s get down to business. Earlier tonight, we asked
each of you a few questions, you wrote down the answers,
and now your spouses are gonna try to guess answers
that you gave. It is important to remember that
how well you do in this game directly correlates to how well
your marriage is doing. -Oh, great. The first question
is for the husbands. Husbands, we asked your wives, “If you could have
your husband’s blank, what would it be?” That’s right — if you could
have your husband’s blank, what would it be?
-[ Laughing ] Oh, boy. -Dad, what’s your answer? -Um…
I would say… my, uh, hair.
-Your hair. -Yeah.
I have really good hair. -Your hair.
Mom, let’s see the card. -Quick wit. [ Laughter ] -Not so much, huh?
[ Laughter ] -All right, Seth,
what’s your answer? -I think she would have
my beautiful blue eyes. -Beautiful blue eyes.
Alexi, let’s see the card. -I really like my green eyes.
-Wife. -Ooh! [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] Trust me. It looks great from the outside,
but there are some issues. [ Laughter ] -So you would just want
a replica of yourself? -Yes.
-Okay. They’re very good
to have around, I can assure you of that. All right, Tom,
what’s your answer? -I’m gonna go with
musical talent. -Musical talent.
Joan? Singing voice?
-We’ll take it. [ Cheers and applause ]
We’ll take it. [ Both laugh ] -Very good, very good. All right, our next question
is for the wives. We asked your husbands, “How can you tell when your wife
is mad at you?” “How can you tell when your wife
is mad at you?” Mom, what’s your answer? -Wait a minute.
How can he tell if I’m mad? -Yeah.
-Yeah. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -All right. I think it would be
a sullen silence. -Sullen silence. Dad, let’s see
what’s on the card. [ Laughter ] “She refers to me
as ‘your father’ when talking to Seth and Josh.” [ Cheers and applause ] -Go to bed early? -And, dad,
when you’re in her good graces, she refers to you as…
-My hero. [ Laughter ] -It’s a very clear delineation.
All right. Alexi, what is your answer? -I think my face, my voice,
and everything about me. [ Laughter ] -Seth, let’s see the card. “She says, ‘I am mad at you.'” [ Laughter ] I think
we’re not gonna give you that. -No, no.
-It’s very clear. -She’s more text than subtext. [ Laughter ] All right.
And, Joan, what’s your answer? -I ignore him. -You ignore him.
Tom? “Yells at me.”
-What did he say? Yells at you.
Different than ignoring. All right.
No points in that round. All right, our next question
is for the husbands. We asked your wives, “How does your husband
deal with telemarketers?” We asked your wives, how do you deal
with telemarketers? What did your wife say? -I’m as rude and angry
as I possibly can be with them. -Mother? “He screams as loud as he can.” [ Laughter ]
-We’ll take it. We’ll give you that one. [ Cheers and applause ] Dad, can you do a quick
impression of where you get to, if you’re gonna act
like your hand is a phone, what it gets to? -Yeah, well,
I don’t care about that! How’s that?!
[ Laughter ] -Very good.
Thank you, thank you. All right,
Seth, what’s your answer? -I never answer the phone. -Alexi?
“He doesn’t answer.” [ Cheers and applause ] All right. And, Tom, what is your answer? -I think she would say
that I probably talk to them. [ Laughter ] -That’s what I would say. [ Laughter ] Joan, what did you say?
-I said — What did I say? “Take my name off the list.” -“Take my name off the list.”
All right. But he might meet a nice friend
on the phone. Well, all right, let’s take
a quick look at the scorecard. We are tied three ways —
1-1-1. So this is anybody’s game. The last question
is worth up to 3 points. Joan, I hope you can sort these
cards out before we get there. It’s time for the wives. We asked your husbands
to describe you in three words. What three words
did your husband say? You will get one point
for each word correctly guessed. So, Mom, three words —
what is your answer? -How I described you. -Va va voom. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] -I mean… You really went all-in on that. -Let let me just say,
it would be so shocking if he got two out of three. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -“Oh, he said, ‘Va va nice.'” [ Laughter ] All right, Dad,
show us your card. -I don’t want to.
[ Laughter ] -All right. -Beautiful, heiress, and joyful. -Oh. [ Applause ] Also, just for you
watching at home, my mother is not an heiress, but she will get a check
from being on this show, and they tend to rerun it, and when those checks come in,
she claims she’s an heiress. [ Laughter ] -If she has an envelope. -And she has an envelope,
like an heiress. [ Laughter ] Alexi, what’s your answer?
Three words. -Obsessive compulsive disorder. -Obsessive compulsive disorder? -“Disorder” was last word?
-Yeah. -Beautiful, smart,
strong-willed. -I couldn’t say that,
by the way. [ Laughter ] -Well, I couldn’t say O.C.D. [ Laughter ] It’s like
“The Gift of the Magi.” [ Laughter ] All right, Joan. -Bossy, impatient,
and beautiful. [ Laughter ] -Come on, Tom. -Well,
at least there’s beautiful! -Smart, sexy.
[ Cheers and applause ] Okay.
Let’s look at the final score. It looks like
a tie for second and third. Seth and Alexi and mom and dad
with one point each. Turns out “Va va voom” and “Obsessive compulsive
disorder” tanked you. [ Laughter ] First place is gonna go to
Tom and Joan. You are #CoupleGoals. That’s right.
[ Cheers and applause ] Tom and Joan have a true love that will
stand the test of time. That’s all the time we have. Thanks for joining us
for “The Newlywed Game.”
