* Also Season 30, back in the late nineties, Horatio Sanz, Music/JimmyFallon, [[Series/ThirtyRock Tracy Morgan]], and [[Series/TheMiddle Chris Kattan]] used to do an annul Christmas song. When Fallon, Morgan, and Kattan left, Franchise/TheMuppets [[MuppetCameo came in to cheer up Horatio!]]

* From the 2000-2001 season, a parody ad for the drug ''Homocil'', intended to help parents deal with the fact that their children were showing signs of being gay. The underlying message being that parents should be loving and supportive of their kids, no matter what.
--> (voiceover)"Because it's ''your'' problem. ''Not'' theirs."
* From the season 39 ChristmasEpisode, a spoof of the classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" done as an ImmediateSequel, but subverting whatever UnfortunateImplications there were by showing something real blossoming between them.
-->'''She''': ''Do you mind if I sleep in this?'' (already wearing one of his football jerseys)\\
'''He:''' ''This is getting too serious...''\\
'''She:''' ''You know I'm just as nervous as you / But who knows what this could turn into?''\\
'''He:''' ''I don't know what to do...''\\
'''She:''' ''Here's a clue.'' (she kisses him)

* Season 43 The cold open of the second episode had Music/JasonAldean simultaneously paying tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting and to Music/TomPetty (who died of a heart attack that same day) by performing Petty's classic, "Won't Back Down".

* A sketch for Christmas 2017 has a bunch of real little kids who are all clearly overjoyed to be on the show. A couple even get so excited they can't get their lines out, leading to Keenan Thompson and Kate [=McKinnon=] adorably helping them out.

** And, in the opening monologue she states how grateful she is:
-->"And now I'm here tonight because you wanted me to be. I just want to say that I feel so loved. Thank you."

* One ''Family Feud'' sketch in season 43 has Steve Harvey (Kenan)'s own family up against a mostly white family, by which we mean that they have what is obviously a ChocolateBaby played by SpecialGuest Chance the Rapper ''in his best Steve Harvey impression''. With all the turmoil from the wave of sexual harassment allegations rocking the media, you half expect this to be a reference to that... until it's gradually revealed that it was from a completely consensual encounter from before the boy's mother was married (although from Mrs Harvey's DeathGlare, there's a chance that ''Steve was...'')

* The pretaped sketch "Sad Mouse" on the episode hosted by BrunoMars. Mars plays a man who is depressed over his girlfriend breaking up with him and his dad leaving him for another family he had behind his mom's back, but has to go to work as a mouse, greeting tourists at Times Square. Throughout the short film, the man tries to keep a brave front, but is totally miserable, until he meets a girl in a frog costume who's also upset despite having to be all cheery for tourists and comforts her. It's the sweetest, strangest thing ''SNL'' has come up with (at least until the "Stefon's Wedding" segment of Weekend Update on the Ben Affleck/Kanye West episode).

* Season 14: Creator/SteveMartin ended up hosting the program the same day Gilda Radner passed away (May 20, 1989; S14E20). Instead of the planned monologue (where Martin discusses his good and bad sides in photography), Steve pays tribute to Gilda by flashing back to the Season 3 episode he hosted in 1978 where he and Radner did a takeoff of Creator/FredAstaire and Cyd Charisse in ''Film/TheBandwagon'' in a sketch set at a discotheque. At the end of the clip, Steve mentions how much he's going to miss Gilda and there are visible tears in his eyes.

* Season 14: The Schillers' Reel short film "Love is a Dream" which, while a departure from the usual comedy fare, is one of the most beautiful and heartwarming things to be shown on SNL. It involves an elderly woman (Creator/JanHooks) flashing back to her younger self while looking at her safety deposit box containing a tiara and a necklace. In the flashback we see a man played by Creator/PhilHartman in uniform and taking her by the hand as they waltz together. It's just so romantic, but the capper is when the flashback ends and we see the elderly woman again. She departs from the bank and she glances at the security guard (who had previously let her in) and it's the same gentleman from the flashback. Unfortunately, with Hartman's death in 1998, and Hooks' dying 16 years later, this now doubles as a major TearJerker. In her honor, they re-aired the sketch on the season forty episode hosted by Creator/BillHader (with Creator/KristenWiig as a special guest).

* Season 28: The end of the Music/QueenLatifah episode, where Creator/HoratioSanz does a tribute to Creator/MrRogers (the episode first aired around the time that Mr. Rogers died).
* Season 30: Similarly, an episode had Creator/DarrellHammond as Creator/RodneyDangerfield (who had recently passed away at the time of the episode's premiere) doing his "I don't get no respect" schtick for St. Peter (Horatio Sanz). Rodney thinks he has to do it to get into Heaven, but really St. Peter just wanted to hear Dangerfield's jokes just because. Oddly enough, that episode was ''also'' hosted by Queen Latifah (this time as host and musical guest; the first time she was on, she just hosted)...

* During the 25th anniversary special, some screentime is devoted to honoring cast members that have passed on. A couple involve some good natured ribbing of the departed, of course, but there's no doubt they're honoring the departed. Appropriately, Creator/DanAykroyd and Creator/LaraineNewman do a segment about John Belushi; Steve Martin again about Gilda Radner; Creator/DavidSpade about Chris Farley; and Creator/JonLovitz (backed up by the 80s cast) about "[his] big brother, Phil Hartman."
