If you’re ever in a Pictionary pinch, you now know who to call – Claire Danes, of course!

While visiting The Tonight Show on Monday, the Homeland star, 36, teamed up with host Jimmy Fallon to challenge In the Heart of the Sea director Ron Howard and the show’s announcer, Steve Higgins, to a competitive game of Pictionary.

The game starts off badly for Team Higgins-Howard, with Higgins guessing Howard’s drawing of a periscope is an “eye flag.” However, Danes soon ups the stakes with a perfect, easily guessed rendition of “you’re fired” – we’re only sorry Fallon didn’t preserve her impressive sketch of Donald Trump‘s hair.

In Round Two, both teams get the point. Howard quickly guesses “walking on eggshells” and, at the very last second, Danes realizes Fallon is drawing a man doing a cartwheel.

For the final round, Danes and Howard are tasked with drawing a trampoline at the same time, with the victorious team winning 1,300 points and, thus, the whole game.

We won’t spoil the ending, but, for the record, we would never willingly go up against Danes in a game of Pictionary.
