* Following the stunning results of Election Day 2016, the show could have easily gone for its trademark humor. Instead, a white pantsuit-clad Kate [=McKinnon=] as Hillary Clinton sat at a piano and performed a rendition of Music/LeonardCohen's "Hallelujah", thereby conveying the genuine sadness many felt, as well as simultaneously paying tribute to Cohen, who died earlier in the week. As the song concluded, a visibly teary [=McKinnon=] turned to the camera and declared:

* After one more sketch playing Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon get tired of all this bile and hatred throughout the election, break character, go out into Times Square together and hug people at random, just to show that the world needs this kind of love before things turn ugly.

* In the Reese Witherspoon episodes, the mothers of every current cast member (save Taran Killam and Leslie Jones) appear during the monologue and show adorable home movie footage of the comedians when they were kids (except for Kenan Thompson, which was just a clip from the movie ''The Mighty Ducks'', as Thompson has been working in TV and movies since he was a child as anyone who remembers him from ''Kenan and Kel'' and ''All That'' will attest). Continuing the trend, Colin Jost and Michael Che each read a joke from their respective mothers in Weekend Update (even though a picture of Michael Che's mother was replaced with a still of Diana Ross from the 1970s since Che's mom took too long at the salon to get a photo done).
** From the monologue: Kate [=McKinnon=] apologizing to her mom, Laura Berthold[[note]]Kate [=McKinnon=]'s real name is Kate [=McKinnon=] Berthold[[/note]] for playing the Amy Fisher/Joey Buttafuco/Mary-Jo Buttafuco sex scandal and shooting from the early 1990s when she was a child instead of something more traditional for girls, like princesses and "being weird." Laura then assures her daughter that she shouldn't apologize for being weird because, "weird got ya here."

* The Saturday after Music/{{Prince}} passed away, instead of rerunning the Peter Dinklage episode from early April (though it did end up airing the week after this), NBC created a tribute clip show episode called ''Good Night Sweet Prince'', hosted by Creator/JimmyFallon (who looked like he was about to cry at any moment when he was telling stories about what it was like to meet Prince) and highlighting Prince's performances on the show, including his first from the infamous season six episode hosted by Charlene Tilton that ended with Charles Rocket saying "I wanna know who the fuck did it" and causing NBC to terminate Jean Doumanian and most of her cast, his performance on ''SNL'''s 15th anniversary in 1989, Prince's return to the show after 21[[note]]or 25 if you don't count the 1989 appearance[[/note]] years in 2006, never-before-seen footage of his performance at the 40th anniversary afterparty, and three installments of the recurring sketch "The Prince Show" (with Fred Armisen as Prince).

* Though it borders on CringeComedy, Pete Davidson's mom, Amy, videotaping his commentary on Weekend Update on how she needs to start dating again (as she stayed single after her husband, Scott Davidson, died during the 9/11 attacks) and trying to defend his performance on the show from trolls criticizing him on Twitter (and asking LorneMichaels to include him more) on the Brie Larson episode is very sweet.
