    • Jimmy Fallon: Scientists say the detection of particles of West Nile Virus in the breast milk of a Michigan woman earlier this month, is not cause for alarm. But, just to be on the safe side, they are warning Michigan residents not to suck the woman's nipples.

    • Tina Fey: The Senate will vote next week on whether to approve the use of force to oust Saddam Hussein. President Bush said he will watch the results of the vote carefully, then invade Iraq anyway.

    • Sully: This is Pat Sullivan, coming to you live from the second row of the FleetCenter. I'm at the Bruce Springsteen concert courtesy of my cousin Scotty Skayner. Scotty: YEAH!! Sully: He was the 104th caller on WROW. Scotty: I know exactly when to call!! I'm like a numbers whiz like that queer on Good Will Hunting.

    • (During the "Coping with Loss" segment for Yankees fans) Matt Damon: Now's a great time to catch some other sports. I mean, you guys still have the Jets! (audience boos) Matt Damon: I'm sorry, that was a low blow.

    • Matt Damon: (During the same "Coping with Loss" bit) The most important thing is to remember to breathe. I was hospitalized for a week when Buckner dropped the ball in '86.

    Notes (6)

    • Sketches not shown in the 60 minute version: "Brian Fellow's Safari Planet," "Nutri-Quik," "Hannibal Lector Goes to Michigan State," "Sex Robot," "Dr. Phil," "The War on Iraq," and Bruce Springsteen's performance of "You're Missing."

    • The binocular flask that Sully (Jimmy Fallon) had in the Boston Teens sketch looks like the one George W. Bush (Will Ferrell) had in the "Glimpse of our Possible Future" cold opening of the Charlize Theron/Paul Simon episode from season 26.

    • Ben Affleck was originally going to make a cameo appearance during the "Dr. Matt Damon" sketch, but he had to cancel for personal reasons.

    • The planned cold opening of Darrell Hammond as President Bush bombed at dress rehearsal, so the producers had to scramble for a replacement. The "Dick Cheney Rides a Missile" segment was originally part of Weekend Update, with Tina Fey interviewing Cheney. The lines were slightly revised and given to Chris Parnell to perform as Tom Brokaw.

    • Beginning with this episode, Budweiser becomes the official sponsor of the show's musical guest again after an 18-year layoff.

    Trivia (1)

    • In the "Hannibal goes to Michigan State" sketch one of Hannibal's roomates is wearing a University of Miami shirt. Though that might seem strange to some, it is common for students to wear sweaters for a school they don't attend.

    • Maya Rudolph: American Idol
      In the monologue, Matt Damon wishes he could have done an "American Idol" sketch, and moments later, Maya Rudolph comes out dressed as "American Idol" runner-up Justin Guarini.
