[Starts with Will Farrell in SNL studio]

Will Farrell: Hi. Will Ferrell here, and I thought I would spend some time  giving you a tour of Studio 8-H.Let’s begin.

[Will starts walking forward]

Of course, right here is our page desk. All of our pages work very hard here. [Cut to members of page waving at the camera] [Cut to Will Farrell]

None of them are wearing pants.

Here’s some of the hosts that have been hosting, [Cut to frames of pictures of hosts hung on the wall.] some wonderful photography.

Here we have cue cards. A lot of the cue cards are done in foreign languages just for the heck of it.

This is the famous ladder section right here.

When everyone comes to “Saturday Night Live,” they want to know, “Where are the ladders kept?” This is, uh, Pete Davidson’s tattoo artist. I don’t like to bother him. Right back in that little… that little… nook right there is the ghost of Fred Armisen. That’s where he lives.

[Producer: Will, he’s still alive]

Oh, he’s still alive? Oh. I didn’t know that. Here we are, Studio 8-H. Look at it in all of its grandeur. You know what the capacity is? It seats 2,000 people. Can you believe that?

[Will Farrell concentrates to hear something]

And that — did you he– That’s the Studio 8-H owl. There’s a family of owls that live here. And it’s a wonderful population. They’re protected by the State of New York.

That’s our tour. I’m gonna go ahead and take, uh, a nap. I like to take a nap during rehearsal right — right where the monologue is delivered.

[Cut to Will Farrell lying on the SNL monologue stage]

Quiet, please. I’m trying to take a nap.
