Jimmy Fallon brought back his crowd favourite game “Password” on The Tonight Show this week, with Rob Lowe, Kat Dennings, and Beth Behrs as his guests.

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the stars of 2 Broke Girls, teamed up against Jimmy Fallon and Rob Lowe in this latest version of “Password,” and the results were hilarious.

Uproxx reported that the 2 Broke Girls stars won the game simply by showing up. Despite the fact that the girls tragically lost the game (in fact, they were defeated by a landslide victory by Jimmy Fallon and Rob Lowe), they were so delightful and funny that, in a way, the moral victory was theirs.

Rob Lowe, of Parks and Recreation fame, won the game with Jimmy Fallon by his side, although both teams came unstuck with the word “cringe.” As luck would have it, this proved to be the only cringeworthy moment throughout the game, and the audience loved it.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon’s injured finger has probably been the most famous finger in Hollywood for the past couple of months, as he famously broke it in late June 2015 after he tripped over a rug in his home and caught his finger on the end of the counter.

As Entertainment Weekly reported, Jimmy Fallon was told at the hospital that he hadn’t actually broken his finger — he had just suffered from “ring avulsion,” which is, in a way, horrifically worse than an actual break.

As it happened, Jimmy Fallon’s ring caught on the kitchen counter as he fell, very nearly ripping his entire finger off. Jimmy Fallon received treatment at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital, where talented surgeons removed a vein from his foot and implanted it into his hand in an attempt to save his wayward finger.

Inside Edition caught the story from Jimmy Fallon himself.

“So, basically what happened is I tripped and fell in my kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves and I can’t wait to burn it down. And I tripped and fell and I caught my fall and I’m getting up and my finger is sideways. My ring got caught on the counter as I fell and the ring stayed there and pulled my finger off.”

Luckily, as KPopStarz reported, Jimmy Fallon wasn’t aware of any of this.

Fast forward three months and Jimmy Fallon has appeared on the red carpet at the 2015 Emmys with his finger unbandaged, his famous finger’s first public appearance since the injury.

Jimmy Fallon told Inside Edition that he took his bandage off on a whim.

“I took the bandage off today because I figured ‘why not? Maybe I have had it on too long?’ It is getting better. I am in physical therapy right now. It is all about getting better now.”

There’s still a long road to go in Jimmy Fallon’s finger’s recovery, though, and he still has another surgery to endure as well as months of physical therapy.

Anyway, back to Monday night’s show. Irish singer Hozier also appeared on The Tonight Show and delighted audiences with his catchy songs. He really stole the attention behind the scenes, though, when he used Jimmy Fallon’s official Instagram account to share an image of the snacks that he requested before appearing on the show.

As Irish site Her reported that these snacks probably caused some confusion amongst American viewers, but they were a familiar sight for Irish fans and anyone familiar with Irish snack food.
