Although in the past the guests often detracted from the flow of WU, they have now become the highlights of the WU spot.

They retread a lot of the same ground covered in previous visits, especially all of the jabs at NJ. Next up is Hammond's Bill Clinton, probably his most beloved impression. The excuses to revive Bubba are often slim, but who cares? Clinton is back with some tapes to prove that he was the coolest president in U.S. history. Clinton is also very disappointed over not being able to meet Megan Fox since she is not slated to appear until Saturday. Funny stuff, but the best is yet to come. The next segment features Megan Fox, Amy, and Seth in a soap opera-style tribute to the departing Guiding Light. When Megan reveals a gun, the camera pans to a very pleased Clinton flashing two thumbs up. The guest spot by Samberg's college student virgin is completely forgettable. A couple of really good segments combined with a so-so Patterson appearance and the usual panopoly of zingers nets an overall grade of A-
