Ted Cruz probably wishes he missed the phone call.

Jimmy Fallon brought back his amazing Donald Trump impression Thursday night on The Tonight Show and decided to give his opponent, Cruz, a little bit of help ahead of the Canadian-born politician's visit. Little did Trump know that he would be interrupting Cruz while he was relaxing with his favorite movie.

"I'm watching The Princess Bride for the 843rd time," Cruz told Trump.

But the real estate mogul decided he wanted to help his political enemy out by giving him some test questions that he felt host Fallon might ask. "Thank you for being the bigger man," said Cruz.

"Oh I'm the bigger man with bigger hands," Trump responded, pausing to look down at his private parts. "You can't see me, but I'm pointing at my Trump Tower."

Fallon's "Trump" first asked Cruz how he managed to with all the delegates from Colorado without having a primary. "I think the people of Colorado did vote, but they were so high they completely forgot, and let's face it, anyone that high definitely voted for me," Trump said in response to Cruz's explanation. "Let's face it, I won Colorado."

The next topic the two politicos tackled was immigration. Cruz said he wanted to "end" President Barack Obama's amnesty and secure the border once and for all, or, as Trump said, "Once and for wall." 

He continued, "Law spelled backwards is wal."

Afterwards they discussed Cruz's infamous comment about "New York values," which left a bad taste in many New Yorkers' mouths.

"I'm not going to pander to New Yorkers. I love New York City. It's the greatest city in the world," he explained to Trump, "so when I said 'New York values' I was merely trying to say that I value New York. Except I was saying it backwards the way Yoda would say it."

"I love Yoda," Trump shared. "I watch her every morning with Kathie Lee [Gifford]. It's fantastic."

"And they loving whining almost as much as you do, Donald," Cruz joked, referencing Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee's penchant for wine.

Finally, Trump decided to give Cruz some tips and asked him to get a pen so he could write them down. Instead of grabbing a pen, however, Cruz grabbed an alcohol beverage!
