  • Quotes

    • Judge Larry Seidlin: You know, I tough, I tough that, I came up looking pretty good! But apparently, not everybody agrees. What I'm gonna do now is going to read some reviews in the newspaper. These are blurbs! Now when I read this, okay, let's keep out cool, I might cry. (pauses) Ah! (pauses again, then bumps the pencil) Hoooo! (sniffs and weeps) Gooo! (sniff) "Judge Seidlin is a bozo on a bench, (long pause and weeps) which tries to have the spotlight!" (sobs) I gotta look tough, Mama! Wanna be like Muhammad Ali!

    • Seth Meyers: Many critics said you turn the courtroom into a circus. I mean, how do you respond to that?
      Judge Larry Seidlin: Oh, you know, let me (Sniff and bumps the pencil), that makes me think of growing up in the Bronx, you know. When I was a kid I use to go to the circus everyday! (Sad look) And you know, one time, you know, I saw a clown on a tricycle get trample by a crazy elefant. And you know what I said? You know what I said?
      Seth Meyers: What? What did you said?
      Judge Larry Seidlin: I said, I want that clown to be buried with an elefant! (Sniff) They should be buried together! (Cries) In the Bahamas too!

    • Seth Meyers: A new bus in Tel Aviv has a yoga instructor onboard, who teaches passengers how to breathe correctly and relax. And if you can relax on a bus in Israel, you can relax anywhere.

    • Amy Poehler: Monday was President's Day and, as expected, President Bush was up at the crack of dawn, ready to open presents.

  • Notes

    • In repeats, the term "Down Syndrome" is bleeped out of the "Danny's Song" sketch after the use of the term received several complaints from viewers.

    • During the goodnights, Arcade Fire left the stage immediately after getting thanked because they were going to play three songs on stage, not unlike what U2 did two years earlier. Their first post-show song was "Rebellion (Lies)", followed by "My Body Is A Cage," and than they closed with "Wake Up". Several members of the cast, including Amy Poehler and Andy Samberg, are fans of the band and sat in the front row for their performance.

    • Sketches cut in dress rehearsal include: a talk show where the hosts have A.D.D., the weatherman has depression, and the guest has OCD; a Nike-type commercial where the male cast is playing basketball; a sketch where Will has various dieases and needs a buy a coffin from Rainn; "Out of Breath Jogger from 1933" with Andy Samberg (this is the second time this has been cut in dress rehearsal); and a sketch where Rainn, dressed as Michael Jackson, applies for a job. A "Falconer" sketch where Ken (Will Forte) finds out the falcon isn't real and later finds out that he himself is a robot only to find all of this to be a dream was scheduled to air during the live show, was cut do to time constraints.

    • Rainn Wilson is the second cast member from "The Office" to host SNL.
