  • This episode could have been so much stronger than it was. They front-loaded the episode with so much crap that it didn't really show any life until the digital short.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (1)

    • Seth Meyers: The French newspaper Le Monde said on Monday that French secret service produced nine reports between September 2000 and August 2001 looking at the Al Qaeda threat to the U.S., and knew it planned to hijack an aircraft. Though not to brag, but so did we.

    Notes (2)

    • Sketches not shown in the 60 minute version: "Ms. Hastings," "WIIX News," "Newsmakers," "TV Funhouse: Torboto," and Bjork's performance of "Wanderlust."

    • Sketches cut after dress rehearsal include: "Two A-Holes in a Yoga Class"; a sketch about a woman (Scarlett Johansson) grocery shopping but runs into her ex-boyfriend, when she avoids him he makes announcements over the intercom; a sketch where Fred Armisen is a customer in a hardware store and he uses his genitals to hit things; a second sketch about Bill Hader's Vinny character from the Julia-Louis Dreyfus/Snow Patrol episode, this time he talks to Scarlett Johansson and does impressions of Woody Allen and Peter Falk; and a sketch where Scarlett Johansson is on a trial with ever-changing names of the participants/suspects.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Michelle Dison first appeared earlier in the season, she was a reporter for WVIR in Charlottesville, Virginia. However, in her second appearance she "returns" to WIIX, the same fake NBC affiliate from the "Photo Shoot" sketch from Black/Young in Year 31. The call letter change may or may not have anything to do with the Virginia Tech massacre, which occured five days before this broadcast aired.

    • On Weekend Update, Seth Meyers talks about a recent article on the French newspaper Le Monde which reported that the French secret service had produced nine reports between September 2000 and August 2001 looking at the Al Qaeda threat to the US. He goes on to the punchline, saying "Although, not to brag, but, you know, so did we." The visual at the end of the gag is a fake report by the American intelligence, in which they misspell Osama Bin Laden's name: "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US."

    Allusions (2)

    • Seth Myers: I'd rather have the guy from Memento as a lawyer. Seth compares Alberto Gonzalez's memory to the main character in Memento, who had severe memory problems and couldn't remember anything that happened more than about 15 minutes ago.

    • The Smigeltoon "Torboto" is a spoof of the classic Japanese cartoon "Gigantor."
