I think we can all agree that Kerry Washington is just like, one of the best people. So it’s no surprise that during a hilarious segment of The Tonight Show, she was a joy to watch. Jimmy Fallon has an acting segment called “Mad Lib Theater” where his guest will provide answers to a mad lib and the two will perform a scene together based on the words provided.

Washington’s answers range from “spectacular-icious” to “Not today, Satan” which I like to believe is a Bianca Del Rio reference. The actual scene is a parent-teacher meeting with Washington as the teacher and Fallon as the parent, which is appropriate as Washington worked as a substitute teacher before she got her big acting break.

The scene is hilarious, but what it makes it even better is when the duo break character from laughing too hard — which is basically every ten seconds.

We don’t usually think of Kerry Washington as a comedy actress, but if she can hold a scene with Jimmy Fallon, she definitely has the chops. Plus, with Scandal ending, maybe we’ll see more comedy in the brilliant actresses future.
