On Monday night, cellphone footage appeared on the internet featuring actor Dennis Quaid angrily cursing out people on the set of some movie. (Here's the uncensored version.) Lots of people attributed the "Dennis Quaid freakout" out to Jimmy Kimmel. On Tuesday's Kimmel Live, he strongly suggested — but didn't quite state — that this wasn't his doing.

"I have to say, it's disappointing, because you play 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don't trust you anymore," Kimmel quipped. Then he made the most of the video anyway, putting Quaid's (censored) tirade in the mouth of Daffy Duck. Well played, Kimmel. —Peter Weber
