      • Stephen: Tonight: A new report predicts a biological attack within the next five years. That report? Sponsored by the duct tape council. Then I look at some holiday movies that are destroying America. Do you fear what I fear? And my guest Nicholas Wade wants to use DNA to grow a wooly mammoth. Hey, only one person gets to play God: Morgan Freeman. Only twenty one more can't afford to go shopping days until Christmas. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen: Why go to all the trouble to recreate a wooly mammoth? Why don't you just take an elephant and staple shag carpeting to it? You got the same basic idea, right?
        Nicholas Wade: It would still be an elephant in sheep's clothing and if you want to know how a mammoth sort of behaves and what its love life is and its ecology…
        Stephen: Once again, you need to get some better dreams.

      • Stephen Colbert: Well folks, that is it for The Report tonight. Our show will return Monday, or will it? ... find out when we return Monday.
