All it takes is for Jimmy Fallon to jump into her personal space and ask, "You know what time it is?" and they're off to the very silly, very intense races.

But this staring contest, which appeared on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, had increasingly difficult levels of difficulty, especially when the pair started to move into the hallway and elevators of 30 Rock.
