When this first aired, a graphic appeared over Herbert and Marion Sandler (played Darrell Hammond and Casey Wilson) saying "People who should be shot". After the real-life Sandlers complained to Lorne Michaels, the sketch was temporarily removed from the show's official website. The sketch was later reposted but the graphic was deleted as was Hammond's line referencing "our corrupt activities". Michaels admitted in interviews that he was unaware that the Sandlers were real people when he approved the sketch. See more »


About a minute into the cold open, Gwen Ifill (played by Queen Latifah) says that her new book "The Breakthrough" will come out on Inauguration Day. At the end of the cold open, she says the "the book drops November 4th", which is Election Day instead of Inauguration Day. See more »


Joe Biden: You know, I get a little tired of being told I'm an insider. I come from Scranton, Pennsylvania. And that's as hardscrabble a place as you're gonna find. I'll show you around sometime, and you'll see: it's a hellhole! An absolute jerkwater of a town! You couldn't stand to spend a weekend there. It's just an AWFUL, AWFUL, sad place... filled with sad, desperate people with no ambition. Nobody, and I mean nobody, but me, has ever come out of that place. It's a genetic cesspool. So don't be tellin...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, sounds atrocious.
5 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Saturday Night Live was one of my favorite shows, but recent years it suffered rather spectacular decline in quality. This season especially, bar the 'Tina Fey as Sarah Palin' skits, couldn't deliver the funny. This episode is a glorious throwback to the good old days of early 2000's when SNL was in it's second 'Golden Age'. This seasons' hosts so far were somewhat disappointing as comedians and couldn't carry the weight of the show (Phelphs was simply painful to watch) but lovely Anne Hathaway just oozes charm and talent elevating this episode to lofty heights of SNL's heyday. Hathaway channeling Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins bit is simply priceless. With her beauty, charisma and impeccable comedy timing she's truly one of the best actresses working today. Put simply, I'm in love with Miss Hathaway and I laughed my ass of. PS. I hope Tina Fey's return won't limit to Palin's impression, she's just to good to stay away.
