Last quote about Saturday Night Live

Tom Hanks
Dwayne, Dwayne, Dwayne, I could not possibly . . . turn this down! I'll do it! The truth is, America needs us. No one can seem to agree on anything anymore, except for two things. And people are still excited to see me on their flight. I would get the senior vote. Because I've fought in World War II in, like, 10 different movies.feedback

“I said, I'm going to be doing the movie Friday nights. I'll work till one, two in the morning, then I'm going to get on a plane?' He's like, That's right. That's what I said. You'll work till two in the morning, then get on a plane and come here to be with us and do the show where you belong.'

Chris Kelly

We really liked the image of everything just in slow motion falling down around her, and then we called one of the directors, and we were like, Could we shoot on a soundstage and make it flood?' And he was like, No, we can't,' . We really tried to jam through some Titanic-y idea for weeks, and then eventually we thought of this perfume angle [Complicit perfume, with Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka].feedback

Kent Sublette

Melissa couldn't get to New York, so I said, Well, what if we shot it live remotely in L.A.' Of course, I said it not knowing anything about how difficult that would be to pull off. [They shot the sketch on the Access Hollywood set in Burbank.]. It was awesome, but logistically I don't think we'd do it again.feedback

Neal Brennan

Chris Rock and Lorne and I are all watching underneath the bleachers, and Dave is such a good orator that he spun that yarn about Frederick Douglass and Bradley Cooper. [Chappelle shared a story about Douglass being the first black man invited to the White House, then recalled how he'd recently been a guest in the West Wing for a party where all the attendees – except Cooper – were black.] He'd never said any of it before in his life. It was off-the-cuff. He's just playing a different game than the rest of us.feedback

Leslie Jones

I asked Lorne, How come y'all aren't bringing Rosie O'Donnell in [to play Bannon, per her plea on Twitter] or any of them to do it?' And he was like, When you're playing a character, you can't play it from hate. You have to play it from funny, because when you play it from hate, it looks like you're just being mean.feedback

Kent Sublette

That was around the time of Sean Spicer's first couple of press briefings, and they were just so insane. It was a Tuesday, and one of our producers, Erik Kenward, told me that Melissa had flown out with our host and had a monologue idea. That's when I just blurted out, Melissa should play Spicer.feedback

Lorne Michaels

The idea came out of a conversation with Tina Fey at some point during the summer. She said, Well, the person that should really play [Trump] is Alec.' And I went, Yeah!' A light went on.feedback

Ernie Tedeschi - Evercore ISI

It's unclear what's going on right now. There may be caution because of political uncertainty both on the monetary policy side and the fiscal policy side. It's one of those things that we're going to have to see how it evolves over the next couple of quarters.feedback

Ernie Tedeschi - Evercore ISI

We're keeping an eye on it. It could be a canary in the coal mine for some problems down the road. We are far from the point of embracing that hypothesis.feedback

Lindsay Shookus

We've gotten a lot of pitches from people, big people, like, I can play this person on the Cabinet, or I can play this person. It's in the vein of Melissa and Alec and Larry David, and it's never happened before. We got a lot of Kellyanne [Conway] and [Steve] Bannon pitches. But the casting has to make sense. You don't want to make a splash to make a splash. That's not what we do.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's when I tug on myself a half-hour before Melania comes in so she can find it easier, okay?feedback

Donald J. Trump

That's right, nothing's gonna stop me because I have the Republicans in the palm of my hand. Too bad because this is gonna run for eight years, okay? Even though it should've been canceled months ago, but don't worry: We have plenty of fun plot twists coming up. A lot of your favorite characters will be coming back: Kim Jong Un, Carter Page, even that little psycho Steve Miller. Also, I don't want to give away too much but in an upcoming episode we will find out that Kellyanne was dead this whole time.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I fired him because of Russia. I thought: he's investigating Russia, I don't like that, and I should fire him.feedback

Colin Jost

Trump said he decided to fire Comey himself because Comey wasn't doing a good job, adding, for example, I'm still president.feedback

Melissa McCarthy

Before we begin, I know the press and myself have gotten off to a rocky start. When I say rocky I mean in the sense of 'Rocky' the movie because I came out here to punch you in the face, and also I don't talk so good.feedback

Samantha Skey

It's straight-up off-brand. It's a change in tone for Dove, from ads that are almost painfully sincere and earnest, to something that could literally be a 'Saturday Night Live' skit. Unless you're trying to mock everything you stand for, I'm not sure why you would do this. If this were a different brand that hadn't done such beautiful, consistent work, nobody would've cared. But for Dove to equate plastic bottles to a woman's body – how that could be perceived as good idea, I don't know.feedback

Alec Baldwin

Trump himself is responsible for nearly all of the content. Trump is the head writer at 'SNL.' Nearly everything, every consonant and every vowel is something that Trump himself has rendered in some way. So I think Trump is even more frustrated because he has only himself to blame for that. I can't imagine any time in your life when you buckle down more and kind of batten down the hatches more than when you're going through that with your wife. That's just mind blowing. Mind blowing. And I hope everything is great for his son.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I think if he came it would be a great show. I think it would be better for everybody. It's always fun to defuse some of the tensions and unpleasantness of all this because we are mocking him – by no means with more frequency or more maliciousness, if you will, than other people. We invited him to come when I hosted recently, but he refused to come, which is fine. I'm hoping 'SNL' was the one thing he chose to ignore so he could actually do his job.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I can't imagine what it would be like if I met him [now], if I ran into him. When we did the show – when I hosted SNL this season – we asked him to come. We invited him to come, we were so hopeful he would come, but he didn't show up.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad.feedback

Joe Piscopo

This woman knows exactly what the heartbeat of this state is. I'm too honest for that.feedback

Kim Guadagno

Joe's gonna make sure that we talk about what is good about this state.feedback

Chris Christie

The fact is independents don't win in this state. They simply don't. It seems to me that this is just an attempt by Mr. Piscopo to increase the ratings on his radio show. ...I hope it does, for his sake.feedback

Danielle Haim

On the first record, we were really obsessed with mixing the two in a way where you couldn't tell if a snare was real or a sample. We still love that, but this time we came at it from a more organic, rock standpoint. Because when we play live, we realize that ultimately, we're a rock band.feedback

Alec Baldwin

It's amazing. It's kind of eerie actually that more than anything I've ever done, people come up to me and say something to me on the streets. At SNL, they're always coaching you. I was gonna go do a movie this past summer, and Lorne would say, I want you to come and do Trump on the show. It's totally a caricature. You know, you just pick a few things. Like, I'm sitting in the room and I'm going, left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down. Shove your face out like you're trying to suck the chrome off the fender of a car.feedback

Sean Spicer

I am sensitive to the fact that they were sent there on trains. But, hey, at least they didn't have to fly United, am I right? That one just jumped. That one just jumped right out of my mouth.feedback

Melissa McCarthy

Yes, you all got your wish this week, Spicey finally made a mistake. As we all know President Trump recently bombed Syria while eating the most beautiful slice of chocolate cake America has ever laid eyes on. That's a fact. It would be really great if the nitpickers could see the bigger picture and didn't focus on every little slur and lie I say.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Steve, you may be smart, but I once caught you eating a live pig in the Roosevelt Room. Steve, I'm sorry but this is goodbye. Take him back to hell.feedback

Sean Spicer

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had a – someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons.feedback

Melissa McCarthy

Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn't you, huh? Spicey finally made a mistake. As you all know, President Trump recently bombed Syria while eating the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake America has ever laid eyes on. That's a fact!feedback

Jay Pharoah

They put people into boxes, and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do. And I'm fiery, too, man. I'm not a yes (n-word). You go where you appreciated. Me speaking up, they were ready to get rid of me in 2013. I almost freakin' lost my job.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I feel like they gave up ... on the Obama thing. I think it was just like a 'whatever' attitude.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like, You're so talented and you're able and they don't use you and it's unfair and it's making us feel bad.....feedback

Jonathan Scott

I'm putting this out there, I give Lorne [Michaels] 12 months to have us on there to host SNL. I think it would be the most fun. I'd say at least once a week we have a major celebrity from Hollywood or musician or somebody reach out who wants us to do a renovation.feedback

Jonathan Scott

We were doing the Today Show and I remember we were coming off from co-hosting and Russell Crowe walks by and he stops and is like, I have to say, I'm a big fan of the show.feedback

Jay Pharoah

You go where you're appreciated. Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do. I'm not a 'yes n–.' That's not me. If you really noticed, for the last year and a half, they didn't do any Obama sketches. I am the reason it happened.feedback

Jay Pharoah

You go where you're appreciated. They put people into boxes. Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do. And I'm fiery too... I'm not a 'yes n-----.' That's not me.feedback

Oliver Stone

When I write that I am 'in love' with Megan Mullally or Kate McKinnon or Tina Fey, I mean that I am in love with their talent. As a happily married man who wants to stay that way (ahem), I wanted to clarify that.feedback

Jay Pharoah

You go where you're appreciated. If you really noticed, for the last year and a half, they didn't do any Obama sketches. I was like, Just let me do my character and we'll be fine.' They didn't want to do that. If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like, You're so talented and you're able and they don't use you and it's unfair and it's making us feel bad, because they don't use you and you're a talent.' . They put people into boxes. Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do. And I'm fiery too.feedback

Sean Spicer

Russia is on an island when it comes to its support of Syria or its lack of, frankly, acknowledgment of what happened. You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. It was a mistake. I shouldn't have done it and I won't do it again. It was inappropriate and insensitive.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Sorry hombre, it's all coal. That's why I came here. You people stand by me no matter what. It's like you found a finger on your chili, but you still eat the chili because you told everyone you love chili. It's tremendous.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to get rid of it. You're going to get rid of my health care? Like, all of it? All of it. Gone. After you're done, you'll never have to drive to see a doctor again, how does that sound?feedback

Beck Bennett

Okay, so, well it's an homage to the resistance. There's this huge protest in the street, reminiscent of Black Lives Matter. So everybody's marching, right, and they get to these police officers and you think it's going to go bad because there's a standoff, and then Kendall Jenner walks in and walks up to one of the police officers and she hands him a Pepsi. And that Pepsi brings everyone together. Isn't that like the best ad ever?feedback

Alec Baldwin

The media is saying nice things, and no one is talking about Russia. Wow, what a difference that 59 Tomahawk missiles can make.feedback

David Soren

Today, we have sports figures today who might guest host Saturday Night Live. But they're not really purporting to be show people; they don't usually try to make a career out of it anymore.feedback

Virginia Hanlon Grohl

Nirvana was playing Saturday Night Live, and I went to New York to see them, . Charles Barkley was the host, and I told my class I'd get him to sign some autographs. But if there were any [bad] reports from the substitute, then they would be null and void.feedback

Robert Greenblatt

SNL' is having its best season in a quarter of a century – how many shows can say that?! – so we didn't want them to take the summer off.feedback

Lin-Manuel Miranda

I cannot wait – I actually went to the taping of Saturday Night Live and I got to talk to her a little bit after the taping. She's so incredible, what more perfect person could play Mary Poppins? I'm really excited to be able to go to work every day, singing and dancing with Emily Blunt.feedback

Patrick Stewart

I am now applying for citizenship. Because I want to be an American too. All of my friends in Washington said, There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose.feedback

Melissa McCarthy

I feel like my dad and Sean Spicer had a baby, and it's me. Which makes it even stranger. Then, I got into it, cause I was like, Can I have eye bags?feedback

Chris Kattan

When you have surgery, you're out of commission for months. It's embarrassing. You cant go out in public. [Now] it's perfect timing. I wouldn't have been able to do this 5 or 10 years ago.feedback

Witney Carson

It's definitely concerning because breaking your neck is a serious injury. I'm a little scared, but I want to push him so the judges see that he is a contender. It's a hard balance. The first two weeks [of rehearsal] have been a lot of test and trial to see what he's capable of. But he's fearless.feedback

Chris Kattan

They asked me twice. At that time I wasn't ready for it yet, physically. I had to be at the right level of health and spirit and all that. [Now] it's perfect timing. I wouldn't have been able to do this 5 or 10 years ago.feedback

Chris Kattan

One of the judges said, 'Try not to be so stiff.' But that's one of the hardest things for me, is to not be stiff.feedback

Bob Corker

The first time Franken presided," "I was sitting and looking at his profile, and all I could think was Saturday Night Live.feedback

Pete Davidson

But hey, at least I have dreams now, and I've started waking up with boners again. Hard as a rock. I work really f–ing hard and I take care of my s– and I need weed in order to do that. I'm sick, I have Crohn's … so it sucks.feedback

Pete Davidson

Just wanted to let you guys know I'm okay. I know I've kinda been missing, on social media and on the show. I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years.feedback

Pete Davidson

I got Crohn's disease when I was 17 or 18. And I found that the medicines that the doctors were prescribing me and seeing all these doctors and trying new things … weed would be the only thing that would help me eat.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I know this guy over here – he loves Trump. Here's what we're going to do, we're going to bring coal back. We're going to have so much coal that you're going to say, Where did all this coal come from? I never knew there could be this much coal.feedback

Alec Baldwin

The aliens are laughing at us. They're killing us and laughing at us. Here's what we're going to do, we're going to bring coal back. You won't believe how much coal we're going to have. You'll say I never knew there could be so much coal. So I won the popular vote?feedback

Alec Baldwin

Everyone in California is dead? Even Arnold? Now here is the deal: we are going to beat these aliens because we have got the best military. But we don't win any more. The aliens are laughing at us. They are killing us. And laughing at us. The maliciousness of this White House has people very worried, which is why I'm not going to do it much longer by the way, the impersonation. I don't know how much more people can take it, you know.feedback

Kristen Stewart

Donald, if you didn't like me then, you're probably really not going to like me now. Because I'm hosting SNL, and I'm, like, so gay, dude.feedback

Pete Davidson

Just wanted to let you guys know I'm okay. I know I've kinda been missing on social media and on the show.feedback

Pete Davidson

I got Crohn's disease when I was 17 or 18. Weed would be the only thing that would help me eat. I tried going to rehab because I wanted to smoke weed less. Like, I didn't even want to quit. Don't tell anyone that in rehab, by the way.feedback

Kate McKinnon

Zoë Kravitz is a great lady. Blair is so uptight and Zoë is so cool in real life. I think that her coolness in real life is adding another dimension to this character and it's really cool to watch.feedback

Kate McKinnon

It's hilarious. Scarlett Johansson is a great actress – really funny. She improvises really funny stuff and it's really rare to find the two rolled into one. And it's such a cool thing to watch her just work. I sort of just sit there and go, Wow, look at that.feedback

Kate McKinnon

Ilana Glazer is what we call a spitfire. You give her something to do and she just – it snaps, it crackles, it pops. She makes everything so much her own and she's such a cool character in real life. I've known her for so long and she just always brings all of herself to it. And she's so magnetic to watch.feedback

Kate McKinnon

You'd be hard-pressed to find a funnier person. Jillian Bell is just improvising the funniest stuff I've ever heard. And she brings an absolute manic sincerity and devotion to this character that is so grounded and believable.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I think for me playing Trump has been, it's been a fun experience because it's like going home when I do SNL.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I didn't realize in the comedy terms that I was dead. Maybe I was in a coma ... now I'm waking up from a coma and now I'm ready to do some comedy. A large plurality of the country voted for Trump as president, and I think many of them are people that are not fond of the way Trump is treated, not just by 'Saturday Night Live' but the comedy cosmos in general.feedback

Jonathan Scott

When you go to SNL and Leslie pulls out reno plans to review. Any other cast renos I can help with? How about a meditation room for Vanessa [Bayer], karaoke studio for Kenan [Thompson] and a karate dojo for Kate [McKinnon]?feedback

David Letterman

Alec Baldwin deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sadly, he's not going to get it from this president. Well, that's Alec Baldwin and Saturday Night Live. It's distracting the batter. Eventually Trump's going to take a fastball off the sternum and have to leave the game. People tell me nice things about Seth Meyers, that he's good and thoughtful. I'm aware that Stephen has been able to solidify his position [in the wake of Trump], or – having not seen the show, I don't know what the situation was prior. I can't say much about these shows, because I just don't watch them.feedback

Forrest Gump

I always say life is like a box of chocolates. Sure are a lot of brown ones in there.feedback

Andrew Miller

Even if he's not tweeting about it, they know that someone in the White House is paying attention to it, and I think that increases the currency of the show.feedback

Alec Baldwin

Now he aims, out of spite, 2 destroy everything they hold dear. For Trump and Bannon, the ? is always, What will drive liberal NY crazy?feedback

Alec Baldwin

North and South Korea issued a joint communicate, calling for Adam Sandler's execution.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I thought I had said goodbye, but the pull of fate is undeniable. So, I must return. I must find the strength to ... I've got the slicked back hair, I'm a little old for that, but yeah. Because I'd just have to sit there and go, Duh.'.feedback

Alec Baldwin

I'm trying to be patient in the first – not 100 days – but the first couple hundred days. But I just wish President Trump would give us a reason to feel good and to feel safe and to feel like he's representing our interests. I want him to succeed, but I think that his definition of success is going to be very different than mine.feedback

Rosie O'Donnell

If asked, of course I would. Alec is amazing, Melissa McCarthy was perfect. It's a funny idea. But SNL knows what they are doing. I have hosted the show in my youth. Quite an honor. I loved it.feedback

Bob Cesca

What makes 'SNL's' Trump material so brilliant is that, perhaps for the first time, the cast and crew are more than aware that Trump is watching. Rather than being deferential, SNL' is deliberately crawling up Trump's a--, and they know it's working, thanks to Twitter.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The way the show is going now and you look at the kind of work they're doing, who knows how long that show is going to be on. It's a terrible show.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He's using your words. When you use the word and he uses them back, it's circular using of the word and that's from you.feedback

Sean Spicer

It's not a ban, it's not a ban. The travel ban is not a ban, which makes it not a ban. You just said that. He's quoting you. It's your words. He's using your words, when you use the words and he uses them back it's circular using of the word and that's from you.feedback

Kristen Stewart

I don't think he likes me that much. Here's how I know. Four years ago this guy I was dating this guy named rob. Robert. We broke up and then we got back together, and for some reason it made Donald Trump go insane. Okay. To be fair, I don't think Donald Trump hated me. I think he's in love with my boyfriend. The president is not a huge fan of me. But that is so okay. And Donald, if you didn't like me then, you're really probably not going to like me now. Because I'm hosting SNL and I'm, like, so gay, dude.feedback

Gregg Popovich

It's all obvious, it's about him. If anything affects him, if it's Saturday Night Live or Hamilton, or she got three more million votes than you. They're illegal.' It doesn't matter what it is, there's a pattern there. And that's dangerous. I'd like to have someone with gravitas, but he got there through the electoral college which is part of our system, and I hope he does some good things.feedback

Rider McDowell

This is clearly a parody of a subliminal ad, and the audience is in on the joke. It's almost unbelievable to me that the network that produces 'Saturday Night Live' wouldn't understand satire.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Kellyanne, I just retweeted the best tweet. Wow what a great, smart tweet. Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad.feedback

Kate McKinnon

I'm not giving up, and neither should you. And live from New York, it's Saturday night!feedback

Dave Chappelle

I don't even think it's the most important thing we're dealing with. All these shootings in the last year, worst mass shootings in the history of the United States.feedback

Barack Obama

Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear codes. If somebody starts tweeting at 3 in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes.feedback

Barack Obama

In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said: 'We're just going to take away your Twitter.' Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear code, If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning 'cause SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear code.feedback

Kate McKinnon

And we can't tell you who to vote for, but on Tuesday, we all get a chance to choose what kind of country we wanna live in. And live from New York, it's Saturday night!feedback

Guy Cecala

We know from separate, non-HMDA data that it has continued into 2016. I think when the dust has settled on 2016, you'll see nonbanks with close to a 50 percent market share.feedback

Ian Mayberry - Twitter

Sometimes I forget this is a presidential debate and not an SNL (Saturday Night Live) skit #badhombres.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Listen, women if you'd just give me a chance I could prove to you that I could do a whole lot more than just grab it. I can also bop it, twist it and pull it.feedback

Milo Yiannopoulos

I was distressed to hear that Leslie Jones had been hacked and naked pictures of her have found their way online. I know we had our differences after my review of 'Ghostbusters,' but I wish her all the best at what must be a deeply upsetting time.feedback

Sue Scheff

I think Leslie is a tough cookie and will come back stronger than before. I think she should stand tall and be a role model for everyone who has ever faced this kind of abuse. There's only one way to go – and that's up.feedback

Grace Helbig

I thought the only way to success via the Tina Fey method was getting on 'SNL' or getting cast in an NBC pilot.feedback
