MAK­ING WAVES

JIMMY FAL­LON

Chicago Sun-Times - - USA TODAY -

Fal­lon re­turned to The Tonight Show on Mon­day for his first broad­cast since his mother, Glo­ria, died this month. And he marked the oc­ca­sion with one of his show’s all- time emo­tional mo­ments. Fal­lon, who’s usu­ally the most cheer­ful man in latenight, nearly broke down in tears as he re­counted his mom hold­ing his hand when he was a kid, and how she did the same when she was in the hos­pi­tal. “When we were lit­tle, my mom would walk us to the store, me and my sis­ter, and we would hold hands, and she would squeeze my hand three times and say ‘ I love you,’ and I would squeeze back, ‘ I love you, too,’ ” he said. “And last week, I was in the hos­pi­tal and I grabbed her hand and squeezed, ‘ I love you.’ ”
