* He had on Frank Zappa in the middle of uproar over the PMRC hearings and had a very intelligent, eloquent discussion about censorship. To see the biggest talk show host in America (maybe all time) take such a stand in defense of the First Amendment is truly inspiring.

* May 29, 2009: On his last show before a small hiatus, Leno revealed all the kids who were born to crew members during the show's run. "And that's what I would like my legacy to be: when these kids grow up and say "Hey mom, dad, where did you guys meet?", I want them to say "We met on the set of ''TheTonightShow''"."

* When Michael Landon was a guest star in one early '80s episode, he complained about the National Enquirer and how they make up sensational celeb stories to sell copies. He told the audience that the $2 it would cost to buy a copy of the Enquirer could go to so many better causes, and asked them to not support them. ''It received roaring applause.''

* February 4, 2015: Jimmy took the show back to LA for the first time since he took over. He then realized a dream dating back to his first year of Late Night, as for the first time since 1994, the cast of SavedByTheBell (minus Lark Vorhees and Dustin Diamond) reunited. Not just that, but in character, and with a spot on recreation of the iconic Bayside High hallway. Bonus points for references to the cast's post-SBTB careers, complete with Elizabeth Berkley's DeathGlare at referring to Jessie [[{{Film/Showgirls}} becoming a stripper]], and Mario Lopez not aging one damn bit.

* February 1, 2015, the post[=-=]UsefulNotes/SuperBowl XLIX live show: Jimmy took the show to a commercial break, but announcer Steve Higgins suggested that the program should "go out big." After Higgins pulled a lever, the curtains were drawn, and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger (as the Franchise/{{Terminator}}) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG2f0pKr2JY appears to thunderous applause from the audience]], and later declares, "[[CatchPhrase We'll be back!]]"



* February 5, 2016: Jimmy's "Puppy Predictors" are summoned to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU66JJHIT7w predict the outcome]] of UsefulNotes/SuperBowl 50. Jimmy placed two food bowls with Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers insignia, respectively. When the puppies are released, the majority of the puppies head to the Broncos food bowl, and the Broncos are declared the winners of Super Bowl 50. Two days later, in the actual Super Bowl 50, the Broncos '''actually defeat''' the Panthers 24-10! Coincidence? Doubtful.
