    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Tina Fey: It was revealed this week that a shadow government consisting of 75 senior officials has been living and working in secret bunkers in the event the nation's capital is attacked. This shadow government is not to be confused with the pretend government that Al Gore has been running in his basement for the last year.

    • NOTES (9)

      • Robert Smigel wrote the "Super Buzzers" sketch.

      • Jonny Moseley is the 22nd sports figure to host SNL.

      • In the "Extreme Wedding" sketch, the slang term "brah" was uttered 42 times.

      • NBC issued a statement that Chris Parnell did the impersonation of Don Pardo for the opening credits (giving him "the distinction of annoucing his own return"), but later reports have confirmed that it really was Jimmy Fallon.

      • Don Pardo was late arriving for the live broadcast, so Jimmy Fallon did the voice-over for the opening credits. In the all future repeats of this episode, Jimmy Fallon's Don Pardo impression was recorded over by Don Pardo's actual voice.

      • The cold opening in dress rehearsal featured the Canadian ice skaters from Weekend Update and a backstage mention of Chris Parnell's return (One cast member mentioned: "He was gone?"), and the Bush sketch was originally a part of Weekend Update. For the live show, the Parnell bit was cut and the Canadian ice skaters switched with the Bush sketch.

      • Will Ferrell was not originally scheduled to appear on this episode. Producers had him shift his movie schedule due to Darrell Hammond's absence.

      • Darrell Hammond missed this episode since he was in the middle of a drug-rehab program.

      • Chris Parnell rejoined the cast with this episode. In an attempt to reintegrate him back into the cast, none of his sketches were cut after the dress rehearsal.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The game show spoof "Super Buzzers" parodies the 70s-era game show Super Password, which like the sketch featured a celebrity guest panel and was hosted by Bert Convy.
