Surprise! Hillary Rodham Clinton dropped in on The Colbert Report on Tuesday, Aug. 5, making an appearance with host Stephen Colbert—and she was kind of hilarious.

The rumored presidential candidate and former Secretary of State and First Lady, 66, interrupted a segment Colbert was leading about her book and her habit of name-dropping to hit the stage.

As Colbert, 50, read lines from Clinton's new memoir Hard Choices, where she mentions interactions with world leaders and stars such as U2 frontman Bono and German chancellor Angela Merkel as a part of her busy schedule.

Colbert questioned, "I just don't buy anything of this—there is no way on earth one woman can be in so many places at once!" The wife to former President Bill Clinton then found herself in one more place: Colbert's New York City television studio.

Sneaking out from the side of the stage, Clinton entered the spotlight to chants of "Hillary!" from the members of the audience, who are known for chanting "Stephen!" as episodes of The Colbert Report begin. 

"Don't you dare!" Colbert said to the crowd. "You were chanting my name four minutes ago, you two-timers!"

He went on to express excitement about the political heavyweight's appearance, exclaiming "Hillary Clinton!"

"Now who's a name-dropper, Stephen?" she retorted. 

"Oh really? Name-dropper?" Colbert shot back. "That's not what my good friend Tom Hanks calls me when we're hanging out at George Clooney's place."

"Oh, I love George," Clinton chimed in. "I wish he could've joined us when I had lunch with Meryl Streep and Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa."

Colbert went on to invoke Oprah's name, only to be one-upped by Clinton again. Later in the segment, the pair got down to business, chatting about Hard Choices and Clinton's experiences.
