** The Music/JustinTimberlake episode of season 38 reunites Creator/SteveMartin, Creator/ChevyChase and Creator/MartinShort - yes, the Film/ThreeAmigos. And Martin Short is the only one still enthusiastic about that old movie, which actually mirrors the Amigos' team dynamics.

** An indirect one when Creator/ChadwickBoseman mentions that he's "played every black character in history except Rachel Dolezal - although playing a white woman playing a black woman would be prime OscarBait." One of Chadwick's biggest MCU co-stars is Creator/RobertDowneyJr, who did something ''very'' similar in ''Film/TropicThunder'', and got nominated to boot.

** The first season featured "the Land of Gorch," a series of sketches developed by Creator/JimHenson in hopes of trying to create puppets to appeal to an older audience. However, due to Writer's Guild rules, Henson and company couldn't write the sketches, the SNL writers had to, and they hated doing so (former writer Alan Zweibel said that whichever writer drew the shortest straw had to write the sketch). This led to the crew and writers developing a dislike for Henson and co. [[note]] The late Michael O'Donoghue, the show's original head writer and occasional regular, was quoted as saying "I won't write for felt," and Creator/JohnBelushi referred to them as "the Mucking Fuppets" and, on the goodnights of the Anthony Perkins episode, pulled a knife on one. [[/note]] Noticeably, the final few "Land of Gorch" sketches are very meta, and have the characters realize that they're not welcome on SNL and try to get in their good graces, but eventually end up in filing cabinets. Henson later said he had no ill will towards anyone on the show, admitting their two styles of comedy just didn't mesh.

* ReailtySubtext: The season 38 premiere has Fred Armisen as a speaker announcing for Barack Obama (Jay Pharoah), while quipping "wouldn't want his job, am I right?" Fred had been heavily criticized for his own portrayal of Obama, since it was akin to {{blackface}}.

** The 1994-95 season was [[SeasonalRot such a mess]] that [[http://nymag.com/arts/tv/features/47548/ a cover article]] in ''New York'' magazine from that time about the show's DorkAge was heavily devoted to the behind-the-scenes clashes that were going on. Creator/JaneaneGarofalo's tenure on the show during this season started with great enthusiasm, but only lasted six months before she [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere quit in disgust]] after feuding with several cast members and writers (including Creator/AdamSandler, Creator/AlFranken, and Fred Wolf). She described the experience as the most miserable thing she'd ever been through through, and the sexist atmosphere backstage as comparable to a [[InitiationCeremony fraternity hazing]], remarking that, every time she arrived on set, she'd wonder "okay, who's mad at me today?". Laura Kightlinger also had little nice to say about the experience in the writers' room, describing many of them as [[ManChild immature man-children]] who were obsessed with crude humor and would bitterly argue with each other, comparing it unfavorably to her experience writing for ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' (itself not an easygoing job).

* SeparatedAtBirthCasting: Creator/NasimPedrad and Creator/JennySlate looked and sounded enough alike that viewers kept mixing them up during their one season together on the show, and they ''did'' end up playing sisters in sketches.
