Oh, you thought Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were done trading verbal jabs?

After one explosive (and final) presidential debate last night in Las Vegas, the two candidates reunited in New York City for the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner, a fundraiser supporting Catholic charities, attended by some of our country's most elite members.

Oh, and Trump and Clinton sat just one seat away from each other. The person sitting in-between them? Cardinal Dolan. Yes, please put a Catholic authority between these two.

However, instead of throwing political punches at each other, Clinton and Trump each took the podium to throw punchlines in what became a (mostly) lighthearted and entertaining roast. Each party's nominee took a turn to deliver some zingers targeted at their opponent, and even poked fun at themselves at one point.

Here are a few of the most memorable cracks from tonight's Al Smith Dinner:

Trump: "I have no doubt that Hillary is going to laugh quite a bit tonight. Sometimes even at an appropriate moment."

Clinton: "Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a 4, maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and tablet."

Trump: "Hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, 'Pardon me,' and I very politely replied, 'Let me talk to you about that after I get into office.' Just kidding, just kidding."

Clinton: "Donald wanted me drug tested before last night's debate. I am so flattered that Donald thought I used some sort of performance enhancer. Now actually I did, it's called preparation."

Trump: "I called Hillary a nasty woman. After listening to Hillary rattle on and on and on, I don't think so badly of Rosie O'Donnell anymore. In fact, I'm actually starting to like Rosie a lot."

Clinton: "Regardless of the outcome, this race will be historic. We'll either have the first female president or the first president who started a Twitter war with Cher."

Trump: "Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. They think she's absolutely great. My wife Melania gives the exact same speech and people get all on her case, and I don't get it. I don't know why. I'm gonna be in trouble when I go home tonight, she didn't know about that."

Clinton: "Donald is very worried about my health. He sent a car for me tonight. Actually, it was a hearse."
