So, remember Matt Lauer's 2005 Good Morning America interview with Tom Cruise wherein the clumsy-paparazzi savior told Lauer, "See, here's the problem: You don't know the history of psychiatry—I do," and "Matt, Matt...you're glib," while discussing Scientology and the "negative" effects of prescription drugs?

Matt Lauer & Tom Cruise

OK! now reports that, since he's in the Big Apple, Cruise cruised over to the Friars Club roast of Lauer last night to surprise him with a few comedic jabs.

"Everyone in the room was shocked," says an audience member. "Tom just walked across the stage after a video segment."

Tom threw out a few zingers while Photoshopped images of the two palling around were projected behind him.

"When we can't get together, we'll talk on the phone two, three, four times a day and say, 'Matt are you watching this?' And he'll say, 'yeah.' And we'll sit there," joked the Scientologist.

"In front of all these people, I just want you to know I can't believe I flew all the way out here... Now lose my number, you glib putz."

When Cruise bolted from the stage, Matt called after him, "Come on, Tom... Stay. We can get a booster seat! Oh, guess his spaceship has to leave."

Check out Howard Stern, Jeffrey Ross, Bob Sagat and Clay Aiken (?!?) at the event.

    First, someone should review this stuff before you post it: Matt Lauer hosts the TODAY show, not Good Morning America! Second, Tom Cruise is a JERK, who treated Matt Lauer like a Jerk, and was only at the "Roast" to try to repair his crippled and down-falling public image since his incredibly ignorant and pompous Rant to Matt Lauer!!!!!! Tom Cruise has only Business cents and not personal dignity--Did he apologize to Matt for his demeaning behavior during the interview? I must say, I was impressed with Matt Lauer's restraint and professional courtesy to the idiotic ravings and insults by Mr. Cruise. I haven't seen a movie of his since, and never plan to watch another new movie from Tommy-boy! His appearance only reminds me of his atrocious behavior and that Matt Lauer is the soul of class.
