Episode Quotes
Stephen Colbert: Tonight, Time Magazine implies the Iraq War isn't worth the cost, well neither is a Ferrari but it gets you laid. Then the new Afghan government threatens a christian convert with death. The Taliban offered him Chichi. Plus I tell former senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart that more democrats should follow his example and leave politics. In the future, you'll be able to inject this program directly into your eyeballs. The future is now. This is the Colbert Report.

Cultural References
Chichi has many meanings. However, in keeping with the context of Stephen's quote in his opening bit, when he refers to Chichi is most likely referring to a snack commonly prepared in prison that consists of cheese curls, ramen noodles, and sausage, cooked together with hot water in a plastic bag.
