The refresher course was not put together in vain. Matt Damon did a full-on takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in what was a spectacularly organized star-studded affair.

- “This is like when I lost my virginity, except this is going to last way longer than one second.”
- “I am Luke Skywalker and Kimmel is the Death Star: big and round and easily destroyed through his garbage hole.”
