Jimmy Fallon, Hugh Jackman, Nick Offerman, and Susan Sarandon play Password

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon assembled an all-star lineup on last night’s Tonight Show for a game of Password. Fallon played alongside Susan Sarandon, against the charming (and unfortunately beardless) team of Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman.

The hilarious game is a nailbiter—well, as much of a nailbiter as a late night talk show game with no actual stakes could be—but Offerman eases the tension with a quick joke that the audience appears to largely miss.

As Steve Higgins assigns the team names (The Mans versus The Ons), Offerman quietly says “If [Hugh and I] got married, we’d be ‘Nick Jackofferman.'”

But no matter who wins or loses, we all learn one thing—no one in the game knows what the word “verboten” means.
