* LongList: When Dana Carvey impersonated George Michael, complaining about how the editor of his music video didn't follow his instructions:
--> '''Carvey''': It went: Shot of boot, beard shot, belt, bullfighter, hair, crowd, face, hand, bull, boot, hair. And I told them ''specifically'' it was supposed to be: Butt shot, shot of the hand, back to the butt, hand, butt, hand, butt, hand, butt, belt, butt, beard, butt, butt, earring, face, butt, earring, tight, hold on the butt, hold on the butt; it's a formula, but it bloody ''works''!

* FanDisservice: Creator/KristenWiig's character Shana was a buxom, breathy-voiced {{Expy}} of Creator/MarilynMonroe, whose appearance at a party would be hotly anticipated by all the male characters, who would ignore the only other female character. When Shana showed up, she would behave like a stereotypical BrainlessBeauty, except that she would invariably start to behave in shatteringly unsexy ways (delivering an incredibly long belch or fart, accidentally defecating, telling a story about how she went ducking for apples but mistakenly ate cow manure instead). All of the men except one would be completely turned off.

* ContinuityNod: Bill Hader's Stefon character first appeared in 2008 in skit where he and his brother (played by Creator/BenAffleck) try to pitch a movie. Fast forward to a 2013 Weekend Update sketch where Seth Meyers breaks up Stefon's marriage to Anderson Cooper and convinces Stefon to run away with him. Affleck returns as Stefon's brother encouraging him to follow his heart.

** It also happens ''every time'' Bill Hader appears as Stefon on Weekend Update (ThatOtherWiki and most late-night talk show interviews even claim that Bill Hader has ''never'' got through a Stefon segment -- both in dress rehearsal and on the live show -- without cracking up [[note]]Though this is an exaggeration, as there are actually four segments in which Bill Hader has played Stefon and not cracked up once -- the first sketch that introduced Stefon as the estranged brother of a Disney screenwriter, a Weekend Update segment that had Stefon, Bobby Moynihan as Snooki from ''Series/JerseyShore'', and Fred Armisen as Governor David Paterson singing "O, Christmas Tree," another Weekend Update segment with Creator/SethMeyers announcing to the audience that he's going on summer vacation with Stefon, and in the monologue of the Creator/MayaRudolph episode, where Stefon appears as a background singer for Creator/MayaRudolph. Still, the four times Hader hasn't cracked up compared to the 13 times he did, as of his final appearance on May 18, 2013, is not a good track record[[/note]]), though, unlike Jimmy Fallon's cracking up [[note]] which is usually blamed on Fallon's lack of professionalism, according to his detractors[[/note]], there's a reason why it happens to Bill Hader. According to ThatOtherWiki and an interview on ''The Late Show with David Letterman'', Creator/JohnMulaney (one of the show writers) changes some of the lines without Bill Hader's knowledge and Hader is actually reacting to what he's reading.

** Chevy Chase: Speaking of which, he's banned from hosting (after doing so nine times, the record for a former cast member) due to his JerkAss attitude toward the writers and cast members. He has made cameos in a few episodes, but hasn't hosted since Season 22 (1996-97).

* Also Bobby Moynihan's character, Ass Dan, who, despite being dead since 2009, has been appearing in the Under Underground commercials alive and well, until they freeze-frame the shot and play funereal music as the caption: "Ass Dan 1981 - [whatever year he died. So far, he's died once in 2009, twice in 2010, twice in 2011, and once in 2012, so that's six times if you're keeping score at home].
