Ricky addressed the table where the cast of The Irishman was seated and jokingly referred to Joe Pesci as Baby Yoda. He also brought upon the topic of Martin Scorsese calling out Marvel movies to be equivalent to theme park rides. In a quirky manner, he retorted that Martin shouldn't be around any theme park rides as he is not tall enough to get on them. He then went on to address the table where the cast and creative team of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was seated and stated that the film had such a  long run time, by the end of it Leonardo DiCaprio's date was too old for him, referring to Leonardo DiCaprio's 22-year-old Camila Morrone, who he is rumoured to be dating.
