    • In the actual "Wilson Brothers Funeral Home" sketch, when Rachel Dratch's character was "dead" you could plainly see her turn her head to avoid laughing.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Amy Poehler: A chimpanzee in China has quit smoking after 16 years with the help of her keepers. The chimp was able to quit when the keepers stopped buying her cigarettes.

    • Amy Poehler: Security in the New York City subway system was raised on Thursday after reports of specific threats involving bomb-laden baby carriages and briefcases. The extra security has made commuting especially difficult for business babies. (Picture of a baby standing on a subway platform, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. Some applause. Amy is clearly amused by the picture.)

    • Lorne Michaels: Hey Amy, you wearin' a bra?
      Amy Poehler: Yeah, Lorne, I am.
      Lorne Michaels: What the hell for? (Walks off, giggling)
