      • Stephen Colbert: And the most affordable city for unaffordable items? Paris, France! Parisians have always embraced the rich. In fact, they loved the rich so much, they used to break them into separate parts so everyone could have some! (Shows drawn picture of a guillotine chopping someone's head off)

      • Stephen: Tonight: The upside of the economic meltdown. Did you know that you can survive for weeks just by drinking your own tears? Then: Is your money safe or is it in a bank? And my guest Wynton Marsalis has written a book on jazz. The interview will be unscripted and last for five hours. If your actions speak louder than words, you're not yelling loud enough. This is the Colbert Report.
