Hey, it's us, in stupid wigs.
If you're in tonight's audience, that means you did it. You're an SNL Great.
Congratulations. You know, there's been a lot of classic moments here, over the years.
Yeah. A lot of classic moves. But right now, we're gonna sing a little song about just one.
Andy Samberg, Adam Sandler:
Uh, listen up!
It's the night of the show, your sketch is killin'. The audience is having the time of their lives.
When suddenly it hits you: a fit of the giggles, and you know that you can't hold it inside.

Obviously the "Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special" didn't take place on the actual 40th anniversary, but close enough. I liked seeing the old clips - how can you not laugh yourself sick watching Chris Farley's motivational speaker skit? - but I would've liked to see every single cast member as opposed so many guests. Speaking of the guests, shouldn't they also have included Buck Henry (who apparently hosted almost a dozen times)? The best segment was the "Celebrity Jeopardy" spoof. It would've been fun to see the Wild and Crazy Guys or The Delicious Dish (of Schweddy Balls fame).
In the end, it was an OK reunion. It's a safe bet that former cast member Victoria Jackson, currently known for claiming that Obama's a "secret Muslim", won't get invited to any reunions.
