Tipper Gore: Hi. I got them in.

Al Gore: [ excited ] Tipper! [ rushes in and wraps Tipper in an extreme kiss ]

Jimmy Fallon: Look at that. Isn’t that nice?

Lorne Michaels: [ thinking ] It is.

Jimmy Fallon: They must really love each other. [ struggling to fill the awkward silence ] You don’t see many married couples this affectionate.

Lorne Michaels: No.. no, you don’t.

Jimmy Fallon: I think it’s nice.

Jimmy Fallon: Uh.. no.

Lorne Michaels: Really?

[ Chris Kattan and Maya Rudolph enter the hall, looking upon Al and Tipper ]

Chris Kattan: Ohh.. that is really sweet, isn’t it?

Lorne Michaels: Yeah.

Jimmy Fallon: I-I-I was thinking.. maybe we should try to get them to stop.

Lorne Michaels: I’m sure they’re just about finished.

[ Al and Tipper still don’t come up for air ]

Jimmy Fallon: I think we should try to get them to stop!

Lorne Michaels: [ nudging Al ] Al? Al? The thing is.. the show is about to start, so you might think about, maybe, wrapping it up..

Maya Rudolph: Hey, Lorne, is she alright?

Lorne Michaels: What do you mean?

Maya Rudolph: I mean, look at her – I don’t think she can breathe.

[ Tipper’s arms begin to flail in distress ]

Lorne Michaels: Al! You’ve got to stop. We’re worried about Tipper. Honestly. [ to Jimmy ] Jimmy, get Tracy. [ Jimmy runs down the hall ] We think you may be suffocating her, Al..

[ Maya grabs Tipper’s arm and feels for a pulse ]

Maya Rudolph: Hurry!! We’re losing her!!
