Here are some facts fans know about Matt Damon: He was in a little movie known as Good Will Hunting, and he has an ongoing (fake) feud with host Jimmy Kimmel. If, for some reason, you weren’t aware of these bits of trivia, his appearance on the Emmys served as a reminder as Damon wandered onto the stage, chomping on an apple, and set up a reference to one of cinema’s most quotable lines of dialogue on TV’s big night.

Damon showed up to rub Jimmy Kimmel Live!’s loss to Last Week Tonight in Kimmel’s face. The piece of fruit—which The New York Times’s Dave Itzkoff accurately referred to on Twitter as “Chekhov’s apple”—also ended up being a callback to an earlier joke about Kimmel’s mom packing bagged lunches for audience members.
