Talking on a telephone in his workplace, a seemingly calm Day stated, “No, I didn’t win, honey. No, not this time both. It’s OK. I’m feeling good.” Then after finishing the decision he broke the receiver in two.

“A few of us are right here to truly serve the American individuals,” Day stated angrily. “All I need to do is get Congress again to work so I can shut it down once more.”

An assistant (Heidi Gardner) supplied him a brand new telephone and launched a customer: Consultant George Santos (Bowen Yang), who was holding a child.

Requested why he had the child, Yang answered, “Nobody appears to know.” He handed it to Gardner and stated, “Simply put him in an Uber.”

Providing his consolations to Day, Yang stated, “I need you to know I voted for you and — get this — so did Shoshanna Loggins.” Day requested, “Who’s that?” Yang responded, “Additionally me.”

Day requested him if he ought to strive working for speaker another time. “Nicely, look, I might be mendacity if I stated sure,” Yang answered. “So, sure.” Then he took a name on his cellphone that he stated was from Tupac: “Woman, I do know,” Yang stated into his telephone. “Jada is loopy.”

Day acquired a name from Consultant Lauren Boebert (Chloe Fineman), who supplied her help whereas a hand reached in from offscreen and groped her. “Are you out someplace?” Day requested her. “Yeah,” Fineman stated, “I gotta go. I’m on the theater seeing ‘Aladdin.’”

“You endorsed me and then you definitely form of disappeared,” Day informed him.

“Yeah, effectively, that’s as a result of I desire the Jordans who win, OK?” Johnson stated. “Like the good Michael Jordan or the even better Jordin Sparks. ‘No Air,’ do not forget that? Now that was a tune. Inform me how I’m alleged to breathe with no air? You possibly can’t. You possibly can’t do it.”

Johnson answered, “Nicely, as a result of, frankly, you’re not me, OK? You’re no enjoyable, I’m hilarious.”

Unhealthy Bunny, the Puerto Rican pop star who was each host and musical visitor this weekend, continued a latest “S.N.L.” custom of Spanish-speaking hosts who delivered a portion of their monologue in Spanish. As he spoke, a satirical caption appeared beneath him on the display that learn “[SPEAKING IN NON-ENGLISH],” tweaking a (nonhumorous) incident through which related captions had been proven on the 2023 Grammy Awards when Unhealthy Bunny carried out and through his acceptance speech for the Finest Música Urbana Album.

A turkey is described as having “testicles on its face,” whereas the king and prince recoil on the sight of a pumpkin: “That melon has herpes!” they scream.

No disrespect supposed to Pascal or to Girl Gaga (who popped as much as introduce Unhealthy Bunny’s first musical efficiency), however we’ll give the sting to the Rolling Stones lead singer and longtime Lorne Michaels pal, Mick Jagger, making the most recent in a protracted string of “S.N.L.” appearances that stretch again to the late Seventies.

If his comedy profession doesn’t work out, there’s all the time rock music.
