** The ColdOpen is also sweet, since it features all the cast members' moms, though when all the moms begin complaining about their children's sketches, it becomes a subversion.

** From the same episode, the short film "The Day You Were Born", about guest host Creator/AmySchumer as a young mother sweetly telling her son how the day he was born was the best moment of her life - only to be contrasted by the ''[[MoodWhiplash utter chaos]]'' in the delivery room in flashbacks. And the birth wasn't even the end of it, as we see the poor woman in the process of raising the infant, like breastfeeding while on the can to save time. The final message sums it all up:
-->To all mothers everywhere - Thanks for ''pretending'' it was easy.

* On the Mother's Day Weekend Update, Melissa [=McCarthy=] appears as Michael Che's stepmother, gushing over him in classic AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents fashion. But he never once tells her to stop, and finally says she should read the next joke from the teleprompter herself, which turns out to just say she's the world's greatest stepmom.

* After the friction between the Jim Henson company and SNL due to a failed CrossOver attempt, someone must have extended the olive branch because we've had both Big Bird and Kermit the Frog appear on Weekend Update. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRgTdws-f6M Kermit in particular is a perfect fit.]]



* [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG-_ZDrypec "[[GracefulLoser I'm not giving up]], [[YouAreNotAlone and neither should you]]."] With all the melodrama, it's easy to have missed that Kate [=McKinnon=] as Hilary Clinton performing "Hallelujah" wasn't just a tribute to Hilary's unsuccessful presidential campaign, but to Leonard Cohen, who passed away that week.

* April 7, 2018: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzMzFGgmQOc T'Challa playing Black Jeopardy]]. The host Darnell Hayes , played by Keenan Thompson, is moved by T'Challa's SincerityMode:
** T'Challa answers that you put your cable bill in your grandmother's name because she is a foundation of the family and it's to honor her.
-->'''Darnell Hayes''': "That's really nice. It's wrong, but it's really nice."
** When T'Challa answers that he would send a "smart-ass child" to a free Wakandan college to educate her, where "she can apply her intelligence, and become a great scientist." (It's obvious that he's thinking of his little sister Shuri.) The host gives him the points even though it's technically wrong.
** T'Challa finally gets the hang of the game and comments about "bland-ass potato salad," winning the competition. Darnell Hayes has a SoProudOfYou look.

* From the Mothers' Day special, Kate Mckinnon is a mother who organises a game show with all her kids as contestant, and they're all just as reluctant to go along with it as you expect real kids to be. Then you realise that ''nobody gives a wrong answer'', subtly hinting at how close they really are anyway.

* 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."



* Bill Hader nearly crying during the goodnights to the episode he hosted, saying hello to his wife (Maggie Carey) and his daughters, and calling the show "his home."

* The one "behind the scenes" sketch for ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' with Creator/AndrewGarfield and surprise guest Creator/EmmaStone doing the important kissing scene, except it becomes one AwkwardKiss after another, including one where he ''takes her entire chin into his mouth''. It could only be pulled off if both of them were dating in real life - and guess what, they are!

* After seven years on the show, Kristen Wiig got a sendoff at the end of the 2011-2012 season finale hosted by Music/MickJagger in a sketch where she "graduates" from "high school" and dances with all the cast members [[note]]the most tear-jerking ones were when she danced with Creator/BillHader (who most likely was crying ManlyTears over her departure; notice how he wiped his eyes after he danced with Wiig), Jason Sudeikis (who spent the entire sketch looking like he was trying desperately to not lose his composure), and Andy Samberg (who actually picked her up and spun her around while they were dancing). The four came on the show together in 2005 and half of them were now leaving -- two weeks after Wiig's goodbye episode, Andy Samberg announced that he wouldn't be coming back to the show[[/note]] and LorneMichaels. Probably the most tearjerking and heartwarming goodbye of a popular female cast member since the "Steve Martin tribute to Gilda Radner."

* Season 41: Tracy Morgan returning to the show after the car accident that nearly claimed his life (and saying that the accident showed him that he had a lot of love and support in the world, along with referring to LorneMichaels as his Obi-Wan Kenobi), with cameos from some of his ''Series/ThirtyRock'' costars.

* 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.
