** 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).

::It should be noted that this sketch was cited (by Tina Fey, on a Season 31 episode that aired on the same day Richard Pryor died) as the sketch that solidified ''SNL''[='s=] reputation as the "edgy, outrageous late-night sketch show".

* 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].

Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateImplications: {{Invoked}} in the "High School Theatre" sketch. At one point, the SoapboxSadie performers all in unison chant "Who runs the world? ''Whites''." While this is presumably supposed to be a searing indictment of white privilege, one of the parents points out that, since all the performers happen to be white, this has the unintended effect of making it seem like they're just bragging.

* {{Hypocrite}}: In the "High School Theatre" sketch, one of the scenes the students perform is one wherein a girl piously delivers a eulogy to her dead mother, delivering an {{Anvilicious}} message about how you should cherish your parents before its too late. This is not appreciated by her ''actual'' mother, who is very much alive and disgruntledly points out that her daughter is a "total bitch" to her on a daily basis.

Added DiffLines:

* SoapboxSadie: The "High School Theatre" sketch involves a production delivered by a group of high school students who have clearly just recently discovered both the concept of ''avant garde'' and various social justice issues such as homophobia, transgenderism, and so forth. The resulting production is a series of skits that are the worst combination of insufferably self-righteous, poorly informed and utterly pretentious, which their long-suffering parents are forced to endure while snarking and complaining from the audience.
