A stage light misses its cue near the end of the "Vincent Price Thanksgiving Day Special" sketch.
Amy Poehler: According to a new study, machines will take over from humans as the biggest users of the Internet, thanks to new technology that allows machines to masturbate.
Amy Poehler: On Wednesday, Bill Clinton criticized the Bush administration saying the Iraq war was a big mistake. And whatever your opinion of ex-President Clinton, he's an expert on big mistakes. (Shows a picture of Monica Lewinsky)
Tina Fey: (reacting to a video clip of Rep. Jean Schmidt) Wow, I haven't heard booing like that since I quit stripping.
Amy Poehler: We are very honored here at Weekend Update to have a very special guest. Here to talk about the hottest gifts this holiday season, CEO of Apple Computers, Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs: Thank you Amy and Tina. Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift? Well it's here, the new iPod.
Tina Fey: Oh! The iPod Nano? I got that one, I love it!
Steve Jobs: Nope!
Amy Poehler: Oh oh! No! Tina, I bet it's that new video iPod. Those look really cool; I want to get one of those!
Steve Jobs: No! Those are both obsolete. This one came out just a few minutes ago.
Amy Poehler: A few minutes ago?
Steve Jobs: Yes, ladies and gentlemen, introducing, and I'm thrilled about this, the iPod Micro! (He pulls out an iPod that is no more than an inch tall)
Tina and Amy: Wow!
Steve Jobs: The iPod Micro holds over 50 thousand songs! It has iPhoto, you can watch movies on it, in high definition.
Tina Fey: But we can barely see it.
Steve Jobs: Exactly! That's exciting!
Amy Poehler: Well, I guess, but how are we supposed to watch movies on it?
Steve Jobs: Well, you don't have to worry about that because by Thanksgiving, the iPod Micro will be obsolete! (He throws it onto the Update desk as Tina and Amy gasp.) Ladies and gentlemen, I am thrilled about this, introducing the new iPod Pequeño. (He pulls out one that is at least half the size of the iPod Micro)
Tina Fey: When did that come out?
Steve Jobs: Just now! The iPod Pequeño, the smallest iPod yet! It holds a million songs! A million songs! A MILLION SONGS! It has an iCalendar that goes seven thousand years into the future, iPhoto, you can watch movies on this!
Amy Poehler: Geez, you know that thing's really small.
Tina Fey: And you can watch movies on that?
Steve Jobs: Not any more, because by Christmas, the iPod Pequeño will be obsolete. (He throws it down on the desk as well)
Amy Poehler: Wait, that iPod was only out for like five seconds.
Steve Jobs: Five seconds too long! It was too big! Ridicules, old, obsolete! But guess what? I'm very proud to introduce, and I'm thrilled about this, the new iPod Invisa. (He 'pulls' something out but he is really not holding anything)
Amy Poehler: Okay, wait a minute Steve Jobs, I don't even think you're really holding anything.
Steve Jobs: I am! The iPod Invisa, the perfect stocking stuffer. It holds 8 million songs, every photograph ever taken, Pong. And watch…(He purposely throws 'it' on the desk.)
Steve Jobs: Oops I dropped it, but where did it go, on the ground? No, it's floating!
Tina Fey: Steve Jobs everyone.
Amy Poehler: He wasn't holding anything you guys. Thank you Steve.
George W. Bush: If the Democrats are so smart, why'd they listen to me?
