Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen — Eli Manning!

Eli Manning: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you very much! It’s great to be here hosting “Saturday Night Live”! After TWO Super Bowls… this is definitely the THIRD most exciting night of my life! The New York fans have been GREAT to us! We had a big parade downtown, where we took the Lombardi trophy to the heart of the city — and now we have no idea where it is!

I’m a little out of my element, but I have some guys here who ALWAYS have my back — my offensive line. [ reveal David Baas, David Diehl, Chris Snee, and Shaun O’Hara in the balcony ] They go with me everywhere — parties, restaurants… they were even with me in the room with me and my wife, Abby, when our daughter was born. Wasn’t that great, honey? [ reveal Abby McGrew in the audience, laughing, but shaking her head No ]

You know — I grew up in New Orleans, went to school in Mississippi, but I gotta say, I finally feel like a REAL New Yorker! It took a few years… but now, I’m an expert. So if there are any tourists here tonight, I’d be glad to answer your questions. [ pointing ] Oh. Yes?

Audience Member #1: Yeah. My family and I were wondering: What’s the BEST place to get Italian food in New York City?

Eli Manning: Well… there’s a great place called The Olive Garden. You gotta go to New Jersey… but it’s worth it.

Audience Member #1: So… I have to go to New Jersey for New York pasta?

Eli Manning: Hey — I play for the New York Giants, and all my games are played in New Jersey. [ pointing ] Yes?

Audience Member #2: Hi. My wife and I thought we’d see a Broadway show?

Audience Member #3: Yeah, do you have any recommendations?

Eli Manning: “Cats”! You gotta see “Cats”! It’s cats… who can sing!

Audience Member #2: Is that even still playing?

Eli Manning: I don’t know. I saw the ad on TV when I was a kid. It was so great. You know what? Even if it’s not playing, do what I used to do — put the “Cats” soundtrack on your iPod, and then go to a pet store and look at some cats! It’s like you’re watching a bunch of singing cats! [ pointing ] How about you?

Audience Member #4: I want to explore a little. Is there a place I can do a walking tour?

Eli Manning: Absolutely! New York has so many GREAT neighborhoods: SoHo… NoHo… BeBo…J-Lo… Flo-Jo. You gotta explore them all!

Audience Member #4: [ confused ] Where is BeBo?

Eli Manning: [ shrugs ] Hey — fugetaboutit! Right? Fugetaboutit! [ pointing ] Yep?

Audience Member #5: Uh — what do you do in the city to just have fun?

Eli Manning: Oh, man… I’m glad you asked that! I do this ALL the time: Get some bulky shopping bags and three of the FATTEST kids I can find. Just big, husky kids. Then we all walk hand-in-hand next to each other in Times Square — slow as Hell! It’s SO fun! Last year, one of us got hit in the head with a brick! It was hilarious! [ looking around ] Anyone else? [ pointing ] Yeah?

Audience Member #6: I know a lot of celebrities live in the city. Any hot places to spot a famous person?

Eli Manning: Of course! I see famous people every day, because I stand in the audience outside “The Today Show”. Look at this:

[ reveal photo of Al Roker, Ann Curry and Matt Laurer standing outside, with Manning behind the barricade in a rainbow wig and holding a sign that reads “Quarterbacks do it in 2 minutes.” ]

Eli Manning: Look close! There’s me in the rainbow wig with a hilarious sign! It was SO cool! I got to be on LIVE TV! When will I do that again?

So that’s my New York! If you don’t like it… fugetaboutit! We’ve got a great show — Rihanna is here, so stick around and we’ll be right back!

A Message from the President of the United States

Written by: Jim Downey

President Barack Obama…..Fred Armisen

[ open on Presidential seal ]

Announcer: The following is an address from the President of the United States.

[ dissolve to President Barack Obama seated at desk in Oval Office ]

President Barack Obama: Good evening, my fellow Americans. It was exactly one year ago last Tuesday, May 1, 2011, that U.S. Navy Seal Team 6, acting on my orders, put an end to the career of Osama bin Laden. I hope you had a safe and joyous first anniversary of his killing, and that you were able to spend it with those you love. This is a special time of year, when we gather together with family and friends to commemorate the shooting of this terrorist, and the gutsy decision that made it possible. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be at home this year, as I had to fly to Afghanistan to remind President Karzai that, exactly one year ago, we killed Osama bin Laden, and that the decision to do so was a gutsy one. And was mine. To Michelle, Sasha, and Malia: I’m sorry I couldn’t be with you this time. You know there’s no place I’d rather be on Killing Osama bin Laden Day than with you. But I’ll be home for the next Killing Osama bin Laden Day. If only, as the song goes, in my dreams.

Now tonight, I want to talk to you about the economy. But first, a little more about the killing of Osama bin Laden. Why is it that Mitt Romney refuses to join the rest of his fellow Americans in commemorating the first year anniversary? Does he think that killing Osama bin Laden wasn’t the right thing to do, or that it wasn’t “gutsy”? Why all this sympathy for a terrorist? Could it be they shared some special bond, since Mitt and Osama were both members of the One Percent? He’s weird.

Now, I’ll get to the economy in a minute, but while I’m on the subject, there seems to be some confusion among the general public about when exactly we celebrate Killing Osama bin Laden Day. Many of you apparently think it’s the first Sunday in May, whatever date that falls on. Wrong. He may have been killed on the first Sunday of May, but Killing Osama bin Laden Day is always celebrated May 1st, the date of the actual killing, whatever day of the week that falls on. Are we clear? Also, in response to numerous queries, here are the appropriate gifts for each anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, according to the White House Office of Etiquette.

[ he reads from a sheet of paper ]

For the first anniversary: Paper. And the gemstone is opal.

For the fifth anniversary: Wood. The gemstone is amethyst.

For the tenth anniversary: Tin. Really. Tin. Many people think it’s silver, but it’s not. It’s tin. Remember that. You don’t want to be embarrassed. But you can also add your own ideas. For example, I’ve already promised Michelle and the girls, for the Tenth Anniversary, I’m taking them to Orlando.

One more thing: I want to remind us all that, when sending a Killing of Osama bin Laden anniversary card, or offering best wishes on Killing Osama bin Laden Day to a friend who happens to be Muslim, we should be considerate of Islamic cultural tradition. To many Muslims, phrases like Osama bin Laden “went dirt-napping,” or “assumed room temperature,” or “sleeps with the fishes,” can be offensive. Especially the last one, since, as we all know, he was buried at sea. And, of course, let’s all remember that heavy drinking and Killing Osamabin Laden Day are never a good combination. So please celebrate Killing Osama bin Laden Day responsibly. After all, it’s the “gutsy” decision.

Well, I’m afraid that’s all I have time for tonight. The economy, by the way, is looking fantastic. Thank you for listening, and “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night.”

    Text Message Evidence

    Defense Attorney…..Jason Sudeikis
    Chad Kevin Jeremy…..Eli Manning
    Judge…..Bill Hader
    Prosecuting Attorney…..Abby Elliott

    [ open on exterior, courthouse ] [ dissolve to interior, courtroom ]

    Defense Attorney: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury… you’ve heard the prosecution’s case. But I will now prove that this murder could NOT have been committed by my client, Mr. Chad Kevin Jeremy. [ he stands ] Now, it’s important that you remember that the Coroner’s report places the time of death between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. on the evening of March 24th. Mr. Jeremy, where were you at, at that time.

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] I was at home, all evening.

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm. Now, did anyone actually see you at home? A wife or a girlfriend?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] No, sir. I live alone.

    Defense Attorney: But, you were, maybe, in communication with someone during that time? Anyone?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Yes, I was.

    Defense Attorney: Oh. Good. Speaking on the phone?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] I was texting.

    Defense Attorney: I see. Now, Your Honor, uh — the Defense submits Exhibit G. [ he hands over a stack of papers ] These are the text messages that my client sent during the time of the murder. Now, Chad, looking at the top of this page, is this your phone number? [ he holds up the page ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Yes.

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm.Now, at 10:24, you texted: “Just got home, thanks again for dinner, gonna go to bed soon.” And do you recognize the number that you sent that to? [ he holds up the page ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] That’s my sister’s number.

    Defense Attorney: Great. Great. Now, at 10:32, you sent the following to a different number: “Hey, you. Thinking about you, cutie. You still up?” Interesting. Now, uh, do you recognize that number? [ he holds up the page ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] That’s a girl I met at a bar.

    Defense Attorney: Okay. Now at the end of that text, you put a semicolon and a Capital P. Now what did that represent?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] It’s a face… like the face I was making at the time. Like I was winking, but I was also sticking my tongue out.

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm. I see. And could you make that face for the jury, please?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Yes, I can. [ he tilts his head, winks, and sticks his tongue out ]

    Defense Attorney: [ chuckling ] Not exactly the face of a man about to commit murder, is it?

    Prosecuting Attorney: Your Honor… Your Honor, this is irrelevant!

    Judge: I’ll allow it.

    Defense Attorney: Thank you, Your Honor. [ continuing ] Now, the following texts were all sent between 10:41 and 10:51 p.m. to various female recipients. We have: “You up?”… “Hey, you. What up?”… “You out?” Another one: “You out?” Another: “You out?” And, finally: “What are those big boobs of yours doing right now?” Were these your texts?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone, embarrassed ] Yes, they were.

    Defense Attorney: [ smiling ] Further proof that my client was in no mood for murder! Now, at 10:54, he texted: “Want some?”, and he attached the following photo — Defense admits Exhibit H, this cell phone photo. [ he holds up a blown-up photo of Jeremy sitting in boxer shorts while holding a banana between his legs ] Now, Chad… the banana is meant to represent…?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] A penis.

    Defense Attorney: Whose penis?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] My penis.

    Defense Attorney: And would you say this is… an accurate depiction?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] No, it is not.

    Defense Attorney: And, uh, why is that?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] The banana is larger.

    Judge: I was gonna say! [ he starts to chuckle ]

    Defense Attorney: Yeah, yeah! Now, the recipient of the photo responded at 11:01: “Chad, you woke me and my fiancee. Don’t text me any more.” And you responded with one word, spelled “K-E-W-L.” And that just means… No, how do you pronounce that word, actually?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Kewl.

    Defense Attorney: I see. And, uh… and that just means…?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Cool!”

    Defense Attorney: But, again — it’s pronounced…?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Kee-ooh-ewl!”

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm. And, for the jury, one more time?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Kewl!”

    Defense Attorney: Now, following that, my client, uh, sent out another series of texts, again, each one to a different female: “You up?”… “You out?”… “You up?”… “You out?”… “You out?”… “You out?”… “S’up?”

    Judge: The guy casts a wide net, huh?

    Defense Attorney: [ laughing ] And then, finally: “Hey, I’m probably the last guy on Earth you want to hear from right now, and you don’t have to respond if you don’t want to. Just know that you are loved.”

    Judge: Awwww…

    Defense Attorney: [ laughing, as he pats the Judge’s hand ] Now, on that last one, there was a colon followed by a lower case O. Could you make that face for the jury, please?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Yes, sir. [ he raises his eyes up and makes an O-face ]

    Defense Attorney: Understood. Now, at 11:08, you received this text: “Dear Wal-Mart Shopper, you won $1,000 gift card.”, and you responded: “Who this?”… followed by: “You up?” So you’re just kind of fishing for anything by that point, huh?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] That’s correct.

    Defense Attorney: Yeah. Now, moving on… at 11:21, you sent: “Feeling better, cutie?” And who was that sent to?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] A co-worker who was in a car accident.

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm. Now… did you meet up with her?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] No, sir. She was in a coma. It was a very bad car accident.

    Defense Attorney: And, uh, did you know that when you sent the text?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] Yes, I did.

    Judge: Euggghhhh…

    Defense Attorney: Yeah, yeah… it’s unbelievable. I know. It’s alright, it’s alright. Now, you sent her, uh, you sent her one more text that night. Would you mind reading that for the jury? [ he hands Jeremy the sheet ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “You going out after? I’m having a beer near the hospital with some bros. Let me know if you wanna hook up. Hehe!”

    Defense Attorney: Would you mind reading that last part again, please?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Hehe!”

    Defense Attorney: I see. Sort of a child-like laughter. I understand. Were you laughing like that at the time?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] No, sir. I guess I was just being silly, yet sexy. You know, like: “Hee hee!” [ he tilts his head, winks, and sticks his tongue out ]

    Prosecuting Attorney: Your Honor, none of this proves he was home all night!

    Defense Attorney: Uh, well — he was! And if these texts weren’t enough to prove that, I would like to present my client’s Internet search history from that evening. [ he holds up a separate sheet ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ stunned, he leans into the microphone ] I’d rather just confess to the murder!

    Defense Attorney: But… but you didn’t do it! You didn’t do it! So could you just read the, uh, to the jury the first thing you searched for there? [ he hands the sheet over ]

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Elderly Butts.”

    Defense Attorney: Mmm-hmm.

    Prosecuting Attorney: Yeah. The prosecution can’t hear any more of this. We drop the charges.

    Judge: [ amused ] Yeah, but I’d like to hear more! What’s the next one?

    Chad Kevin Jeremy: [ leaning into the microphone ] “Very Elderly Butts.”

    George W. Bush: I’d be in the Oval Office hooking up the Slurpee machine, settling into a “Charles in Charge” marathon…

    Joe Biden: Yeah! Uh-huh!

    George W. Bush: And then that penguin would come waddling in and yell, “Get your damn pants on, we’re going to bomb blabbity-blah-blah-blah!” I mean, it’s like… whatever happened to being a kid?

    Joe Biden: Exactly! Yeah, politics isn’t fair.

    George W. Bush: No sir. Well… [ breathes deeply ] mission accomplished.

    Joe Biden: What’s that supposed to mean?

    George W. Bush: It’s just something I like to say when a problem isn’t solved… but I don’t want to talk about it any more.

    Joe Biden: [ laughing ] Oh, you crazy son of a gun!

    George W. Bush: [ standing ] Now, uh… now, let’s fidn that butterfly and bring it to justice. Where do you keep your shotgun?

    Joe Biden: Well, I don’t have a shotgun.

    George W. Bush: Well, what kind of Vice-President are you?

    [ they crack up laughing ]

    Joe Biden: Dick!

    George W. Bush: Come on, let’s go.

    Joe Biden: Okay. Wait, wait, hey — aren’t you forgetting something?
