* Combined with EarlyInstalmentWeirdness, one Season 41 episode has unannounced guest Creator/AlecBaldwin, not as Trump but as Democrat presidential candidate hopeful Jim Webb, who's not only boasting all his accomplishments but strangely the ''least'' left-leaning Democrat, what with his NRA certification, and when asked questions suddenly gets all evasive. All this, and going from declaring himself "your future president" to just calling himself "President Webb" by the end.

* Back in 1982, there was an episode hosted by Creator/DrewBarrymore - fresh from ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'', all smiles and curls, just seven years old (making Barrymore the youngest host ''SNL'' has ever had, beating out Creator/JodieFoster, who was 14 when she hosted in 1976). In the cold opening, when asked if she wanted a glass of milk, she responds: "Milk? I'm a Barrymore! Get me a drink and make it a double!" Her family legacy of alcoholism and self-destructive behavior would catch up with her for real, and in a big (bad) way, not long after (just four years after, she really was drinking alcohol). Subverted in that there is a happy ending to all of this: Drew Barrymore managed to climb out of the same pit of drugs and despair as her ancestors did and has come back to host a few more times, now becoming ''SNL'''s most frequent female host (beating out Candice Bergen, who frequently hosted in the early days of the show) as of October 2009.

* The pre-Election Day 2016 sketches, if you're a Hillary Clinton supporter, when it looked like the Clinton was going to win by a landslide.
* On that note, the "Never gonna be president now" meme that Creator/LinManuelMiranda referenced about UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump has become this, after Donald Trump unexpectedly won the election.

* A lesser known example from the "Not Ready for Prime Time" era is in a sketch known as "Least-Loved Bedtime Stories." Michael O'Donoghue narrates a story called "The Little Engine that Died," where he says "I think I can...I Think I Can...HEARTATTACK...OHMYGODTHEPAIN!" In 1994, "Mr. Mike" woke up, felt what was thought to be a severe migraine headache, and screamed "OH MY GOD" in pain and later died from cerebral hemorrhage. Michael O'Donoghue was an SNL writer known for his sadistic humor and his frequent migraines, making this death a literal "funny aneurysm moment" ''and'' a KarmicDeath.

* Season 15 Episode 14 has Fred Savage as a kid playing with a gun he took from his dad. Who just happened to be played by Phil Hartman. During the skit, Fred holds the gun to Phil and threatens to shoot him. Later on at the end. Kevin Nealon comes in to talk about gun safety. And, he startles Phil. Leading Phil to retort "Don't spook me like that. I almost blew your head off!" Not so funny, since that's basically what happened to Phil. Yeah...May be HarsherInHindsight.
