  • Quotes

    • Seth Meyers: A disabled man in Georgia who had his wallet stolen at gunpoint says that all he wants back is his lucky penny that was in the wallet. I don't know if it was that lucky, man who was robbed at gunpoint.

    • Seth Meyers: Olympia Snowe's vote was hailed as a victory for bipartisanship. So now you only need one Republican to be bipartisan? Those are pretty low standards. That's like saying you're bi-lingual if you say "hola" to the nanny.

    • Seth Meyers: It was revealed this week that the cast of the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice will include Sharon Osbourne, Sinbad and Rod Blagojevich. I think we've finally reached the point in our society where "celebrity" just means "mammal."

    • Seth Meyers: A company that designs fonts is suing NBC for two million dollars for trademark infringement for using their fonts during a recent ad campaign. Joke's on them- we don't have two million dollars!

  • Notes

    • International airdates:
      -Latin America: June 5, 2010 on Sony Entertainment Television (a.k.a. Canal Sony).

    • In dress rehearsal, Will Forte appeared in place of James Franco in the "What's Up With That" sketch. The sketch that James Franco starred in was cut so they put him in the aforementioned sketch in the live show.

    • Sketches cut after dress rehearsal: in a Digital Short, a girl (Kristin Wiig) is awed by New York at first, then becomes upset with what she sees and becomes homesick; a funeral home spokesman (Bobby Moynihan) profiles headstones for a sickly woman (Jenny Slate); Gerard Butler is visited by his sister Claire (Fred Armisen); Jeff Montgomery (Will Forte) creeps out a man (Jason Sudeikis) and his son (James Franco), while trick-or-treating two weeks early; and on Weekend Update, a woman (Jenny Slate) rambles incessantly, and Jason Sudiekis gives a commentary.

    • Andy Samberg did not appear in this broadcast.
