Speaker 2: New York’s famed Carnegie Deli has introduced a new sandwich featuring a massive tower of turkey and bacon which they call the ‘Derek Jeter Triple Club’. They named it for Jeter because after you eat it, [Picture changes to Jeter’s back with ‘2’ on his jersey.] you’ll take a legendary number 2. [audience laughing] [Cut to 1. There’s a picture of Microsoft logo and written ‘Fifth Ave’ at left top corner.]

[Cut to 2. There’s a picture of ‘Police Department: City of New York’ logo at right top corner.]

Speaker 2: The New York city Police Department is hoping to eliminate incidents of police brutality by showing police a compilation video of officers assaulting people. Unfortunately, the background song on the video is, “This is how we do it.”

[Picture changes to Jimmy Carter]

Jimmy Carter celebrates his 90th birthday this week as usual by snorting peanut dust off a hooker’s ass.

[Picture changes to Joe Biden]

While speaking at Harvard this week, vice president Joe Biden said that his job can be “a bitch”. But when you’re vice president, bitch is basically the job description.

[Cut to 1 and 2]

Speaker 1: Now, that’s kind of a weird word. Can we say that?

Speaker 2: What? Bitch?

Speaker 1: Yes.

Speaker 2: Well, I think so because we’re talking about a thing, not a woman.

Speaker 1: Okay, yes. Cool, cool. Um, while we’re on the subject, could I ask you if there’s a couple of other things I can say?

Speaker 2: Yeah.

Speaker 1: Like, what about ‘bae’?Can I call my girlfriend bae?

Speaker 2: Ew, no. You can’t.

Speaker 1: Why, is it because I’m white?

Speaker 2: No, it’s because you’re 30.

Speaker 1: Well, what if I’m in the club?

Speaker 2: Well, you definitely can’t say in the club.

Speaker 1: Why not?

Speaker 2: Because I know the place you’re talking about and that’s Dave & Buster’s.

Speaker 1: I just feel like I can’t say anything and you can say everything.

Speaker 2: There’s things I can’t say. Like, “Tootle-loo.” Or, “Skinny Macchiato.” Or, “Thank you for your help, officer.”

Speaker 1: You know, coming out of your mouth, that does sound a little cra-cra.

Speaker 2: See that’s– Actually, you can keep cra-cra. You pretty much ruined that for everybody.

[Cut to 1. There’s a picture of a breakfast meal at left top corner.]

Speaker 1: I got cra-cra. A British cafe has introduced a new breakfast called the Hybernator which is 8,000 calories and contains bacon, sausage, cheese omelettes, waffles, toast, black pudding and beans. And if you’re able to finish the entire thing, they’ll even make your plaque with your name on it. [Picture changes to a tombstone with all the written on a plaque.] [Picture changes to Nicholas Sparks.]

A law suit has been filed by a former head of the North Carolina private school against ‘Notebook’ author Nicholas Sparks, alleging he’s a bigot and held the man captive in a room while attacking him. But something tells me they’ll end up falling for each other at the end.

 

Weekend Update 1

Colin Jost

Michael Che

[Starts with Weekend Update intro]

Announcer: It’ Weekend Update with Colin Jost and Michael Che.

[cheers and applause] [Cut to Colin Jost and Michael Che in their news set]

Michael Che: Good evening. Welcome to Weekend Update. I’m Michael Che.

Colin Jost: I’m Colin Jost. And here are tonight’s top stories.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There is a picture of Julia Pierson at left top corner.]

Colin Jost: Julia Pierson announced Wednesday that she would resign as head of the Secret Service. Pierson made the announcement at she dove out of the way of a man running toward the president.

[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Texas state at right top corner.]

[Picture changes to Rick Perry]

Texas governor Rick Perry said that the first man in the US diagnosed with Ebola had contact with several school age children. You know who I feel bad for? Texas school teachers. I mean it’s hard enough going to school teaching kids that god created at the world in like 1942, and the first two people were John Wayne and Barbara Bush. But now you gotta deal with 6 foot country boys coughing off a monkey disease. And also, who goes to Texas and Africa? Like, there’s never a reason to do that unless you’re a missionary or [Picture changes to Hakeem Olajuwon] Hakeem Olajuwon.

[Cut to Colin Jost. There’s a picture of  US flag at left top corner.]

Colin Jost: It was revealed yesterday that the man in Texas diagnosed with Ebola was allowed to leave Liberia after he lied on a questionnaire of possibly contracting the disease. A questionnaire! Well, it’s good to know that our hospitals are holding Ebola patients to the same standard as a Facebook quiz. [Picture changes to a Facebook quiz.] And now officials in Liberia are prosecuting the man for lying on the questionnaire. If convicted, he could face up to… Ebola.

[Cut to Michael Che. There’s a picture of Kim Jong Un at right top corner.]

Michael Che: According to report, Kim Jong Un has not been seen in public for over a month after injuring his ankles. And not as I had hoped, because he’s traveling around the world in Dennis Rodman’s backpack.

[Venessa passes smothie to Anne and Anne drinks it.]

Anne: That’s delicious. Did you make this?

Venessa: [looking at the camera] I sure did. With my Vitamix Pro 750 blender. [There’s a black blender in front of her] It’s amazing. It blends ingredients completely and evenly for ultra smooth creamier results.

Anne: This is smooth.

Venessa: It’s also great at making nut butters and grinding grains into flours.

Anne: My blender can’t do any of that. How much is it?

Venessa: Well, it’s up there.

Anne: Oh!

Venessa: And look, just set it to a variety of preset modes. Soups, porridge, I mean, ah!

Anne: That’s really cool. Is it like $200?

Venessa: No. Um..

Anne: So, it’s less.

Venessa: Well, no. But it’s more than that. [Cut to Venessa and the blender.] But did I tell you that it blends ingredients completely? Like, even nut butters. [Venessa laughs] [Cut to Anne]

Anne: Yea, yea, you said it made stuff creamy. It can’t be more than $300, right?

[Cut to Anne and Venessa]

Venessa: Well, it kind of is. But, look at the soft griped organically designed handle. I mean, ah!

Anne: Yeah, that’s great.[Cut to Anne] But still, money wise, I’m gonna go crazy and say it’s $400?

[Cut to Anne and Venessa]

Venessa: Okay, okay, just watch this. [Venessa opens the lid and puts an apple in the blender.] Put this in here. And, okay.

[Venessa starts the blender]

Do you see what it’s doing to this apple? I didn’t even core it. And it’s so quiet.

[Anne turns the blender off]

Anne: No, it’s not that quiet. Dina, seriously, how much is this?

[Cut to Venessa]

Venessa: 650.

[Cut to Anne]

Anne: Wow! Really? Wow! [Cut to Anne and Venessa] Okay.

Venessa: You know, it’s a great blender. I use it everyday. It makes nut butters. So, yeah! 650 is a lot but– I don’t know. It just works so good and pulses–

[Venessa puts a carrot in the blender and turns it on and quickly, off]

Anne: What are you doing?

[Cut to Venessa]

Venessa: I feel like you’re judging me. Like, you think that I’m crazy.

[Cut to Anne]

Anne: I don’t. I’m not. I- I didn’t say anything like that. [Cut to Anne and Venessa] I think it’s a great blender.

Venessa: It is. It absolutely is. You should get one. I mean, if you can.

[Cut to Anne looking offended.]

Anne: If I can?

[Cut to Venessa]

Venessa: No, I just– The way you reacted when I told you the price. [Cut to Anne and Venessa] It makes it seem like maybe you don’t have that kind of income to cover a purchase like this.

Anne: Yeah! Okay! Well, you and your nut butter maybe need to dilate back a little bit.

Venessa: I’m just trying to share with you how great this machine is. And you’re just– [Cut to Venessa] Look, um, I know you’re having a hard time financially.

[Cut to Anne and Venessa]

Anne: What?

Venessa: You have money problems.

Anne: How do you even know my money situation?

Venessa: Anne, this community is small. You know that. Anne!

[Cut to Anne very angry]

Anne: Robert and I are, we’re gonna be fine, okay? You can just let everybody know that if they’re so concerned.

[Cut to Anne and Venessa]

Venessa: Okay. I will.

Anne: We can get a Vitamix! We can get a Vitamix in two seconds if we wanted to.

Venessa: I never said you couldn’t, Anne. Look, do you want any more juice?

Anne: I don’t want anymore anything.

Venessa: Okay, then I think you could just go home.

Anne: Great! I will.

[Anne takes her glass, throws it to the sink and leaves.] [Cut to Venessa feeling angry] [Cut to Vitamix commercial]

Female voice: Vitamix, they’re just jealous.

[Cut to Venessa in her kitchen.] [Anne walks by the window behind Venessa]

Anne: Enjoy all the ridiculous expensive stuff you own.

Venessa: I do!

Sarah Silverman Monologue

Sarah Silverman

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [The band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sarah Silverman.

[Sarah Silverman walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Sarah Silverman: Wow! Thank you so much. Wow, it is so crazy to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. I mean, is it really crazy? Everybody always says it’s so crazy to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. I’m a pretty big comedian, kind of makes all the sense in the world.

Tonight is the end of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. [slight claps from the audience.] And, um– Thank you. [audience laughing] And I just want to take this opportunity to say to all the Hasidic Jews out there, I promise you, god will not mind if you wear a nice cotton blend in this summer. You are being ridiculous.

Anyway, for those of you who don’t know me, I guess I’m knows as a bit of blue comedian which is– I find that annoying. It kind of bothers me. I don’t think of myself that way. I think of myself more as an important comedian. Anyway, because of this, they had to censor a lot of my jokes after dress rehearsal. Like, um, here’s what’s left of my favorite joke. Can we get a shot of Walley?

[Cut to Walley carrying the cue card. All the script is censored except ‘Black guy’ and ‘God’s mouth’.]

It’s all that’s left.

[Cut to Sarah Silverman]

Guys, it was such a cute joke. It was totally innocuous. I saw Lorne laughing really hard at it during dress, like almost too hard at it. Screw it. Can I just, um– Is there like a hand held mic? Can I just– Oh! Thank you.

[Sarah Silverman walks down the stage to the audience]

Let’s get real. Come on. This is live television. [cheers and applause] Let’s go among the people.

[Cut to Sarah Silverman with the audience]

Who are you? Can I sit on your lap?

[Sarah Silverman sits on a random woman’s lap]

Oh! This feels nice.

What is your name?

Lindsay: It’s Lindsay.

Sarah Silverman: Lindsay? Um, I’m Sarah. I guess you know that. Lindsay, I wanna tell you something, it’s really important. You’re beautiful. And you deserve love. And I hope that you are as kind to yourself as you are to any shmo on the street. And I love you.

Lindsay: Thank you.

Sarah Silverman: Your turn. [audience laughing] [Lindsay is laughing]

Lindsay: You’re amazing. And you’re beautiful. And you’re smart.

Sarah Silverman: Keep going. Be creative.  [audience laughing]

Lindsay: You’re my favorite.

Sarah Silverman: You know what it is, Lindsay? It’s like, I get sad sometimes. I feel like, it’s over– in terms of like, we’re never gonna get carried again. You know what I mean? We’re grown ups. We’re not gonna, you know, fall asleep at our parent’s party and overhear adults going like, [whispering] “I got her. No, I’ll take her.” It’s never gonna happen again. And it makes me sad. It’s just like, I wanna be carried. I wanna be bathed and cared for. I wanna get my hair shampooed. You know, like a little child, or a princess, or a quadriplegic I guess. [audience laughing] Very similar lifestyles, very different circumstances. Am I sitting on your phone?

[Sarah Silverman looks at Lindsay’s lap]

Lindsay: No, you’re good.

Sarah Silverman: Oh! [audience laughing] I wanna think of an app. Wouldn’t it be great to think of that million dollar app? Let’s think of that million dollar app. God! I was thinking like an hour ago. It’s like, “Wouldn’t it be great if you had an app that told you and all your friends were making a duty.” And I was pretty excited about it. I would pay 99 cents for that. But then, somebody told me that they have that. I think it’s called ‘Words With Friends’. How old are you?

Lindsay: 32.

Sarah Silverman: You are? Oh, you’re 32. You’re only little. You don’t know nothing. Here’s some advice. If you’re ever drunk at a party and you throw up at a party, I feel like you can save the moment if you can muster like a, “Tadaa!” [audience laughing]

Alright, I guess I should go back to the stage. You keep this. [Sarah Silverman gives her the mic and walks to the stage] You can have that.

[cheers and applause]

Oh, god! This feels so right. I mean, it’s live. I could stay here. I love this stage. I mean this is the first time I’ve hosted but I have been on this stage before. I was like a featured performer on this show in the 90s. I wasn’t in much, but I– A lot of times it’d mostly be like, a plant in the audience asking fake questions to the host during the monologue. And, um– Oh! Yes, you have a question.

[Cut to old clip of Sarah Silverman when she was young in SNL show in the audience]

The girl: I think you’re great. I love you.

[Cut to Sarah Silverman]

Sarah Silverman: Oh! [audience laughing] I love you more. You have a question for me cutie?

[Cut to the girl]

The girl: Are you gonna be doing a solo albums now that you’ve left Wilson Phillips?

[audience laughing] [Cut to Sarah Silverman]

Sarah Silverman: Great question. You know, I left Wilson Phillips because I felt like it wasn’t really my thing anymore and I’m not sure about a solo album. Though, the album of my stand up special “We Are Miracles” is out now. [cheers and applause] Oh, yes you! [pointing at the audience] [Cut to another old clip of Sarah Silverman when she was young in SNL show in the audience]

The girl: Yeah, what did you feed the dinosaurs?

[audience laughing] [Cut to Sarah Silverman]

Sarah Silverman: Uh, what is this? Pretty girl in the audience night? This is crazy. Of course, the stegosaurus is a herbivorous. So, they eat mostly plants but the T-rexes are carnivorous. They’d be more inclined to eat you because you’re delicious. [audience laughing] Let’s take a– yes! You, sparkled face over here.

[Cut to another old clip of Sarah Silverman when she was young in SNL show in the audience]

The girl: Yeah, um, what makes the human knee bend?

[Cut to Sarah Silverman]

Sarah Silverman: Okay, um, well the knee is technically a joint where the tibia in the femur meat, right? And the bending of the joint is aided by two menisci. I hope that helped and I hope you stay this curious and strong for the next 20 years. [audience laughing] I’m feeling that you will. And maybe someday you’ll even get to say, “We have got a great show for you tonight. All of Maroon 5 is here. So, stick around and we’ll be right back.

[cheers and applause]

Ashley…Sarah Silverman

Scott… Kyle Mooney

Brian… Beck Bennett

[Starts with Ashley reading a book ‘The December Generation’ in a park.] [Scott walks to Ashley]

Scott: Hmm, the December Generation.

Ashley: Oh, this, yes. ‘The December Generation’, it’s a term–

Scott: [sitting down by Ashley’s side] That Jack O’Boyle used to describe a group of poets and artists from late 50s and early 60s.

[Cut to Ashley]

Ashley: Exactly.

[Cut to Scott]

Obama 60 Minutes Cold Open

Steve Craft… Beck Bennett

President Obama… Jay Pharoah

Security…Taran Killam

[Starts with 60 minutes video bumper with a clock] [Cut to Steve Craft in his set] [cheers and applause]

Steve Craft: Good evening. I’m Steve Craft. Later in the program, Lara Logan talks to Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba.com who just set a new record for the largest IPO. As well as the record of smallest face on the biggest head. But first, I sat down with President Obama for part 3 of our interview.

[Cut to video bumper] [Cut to Steve Craft and President Obama in an interview]

Steve Craft: Mr. President. Thank you for joining me.

President Obama: Well, it’s great to be here, Steve,

Steve Craft: Is it?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Not particularly. No.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Tell me Mr. President, do you think you underestimated the threats of ISIS?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Without question, yes. And obviously, my entire administration shares a blame for that. But first, could I throw a particular person under the bus?

Steve Craft: Sure. Go ahead.

President Obama: James Clapper.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Got it. Now, what in particular surprise you about ISIS?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Well, Steve, we underestimated their military, but most importantly we underestimated how effective ISIS would be at social media. They really blew us out of the water.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Will all due respect Mr. President, you had a historically effective social media campaign in President Obama008. How could you be worse in social media than a band of terrorist in a dessert in Syria.

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: [laughs] Steve, you don’t understand. These terrorists have nothing to do. They can be tweeting all day. And I’m talking peak hours between 11 am and 3 pm. When they can maximize favs as well as RTs, those are retweets. And man, these guys are shuttle. I mean, check out this tweet. [A tweet appears at the bottom of the screen] “Hearing cool stuff about Sharia law. I’ma check it out.” And then there’s a little emoji of a ghost with an eye patch. Or how about this one? [The tweet at the bottom of the screen changes] “Loving this new show ‘Selfie’ on ABC. P.S. can you believe Israel is still a state?” They’ve also started co-opting popular hashtags and trick folks into reading their messages of hate. For example, [Another tweet appears at the bottom of the screen.] “One day the Black Flag of ISIS will fly over the White House. #TheVoiceIsBack” Or this one. [The tweet at the bottom of the screen changes.] “We will destroy the infidels. #ThankYouJeter”

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: That is very underhanded. But at least the US air strikes in Syria have destroyed mot of ISIS’s oil refineries which were earning them millions a day in revenue.

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: That’s true. But they’ve made up for Kickstarter.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Kickstarter?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: That’s right. Apparently, every time we thought we were giving money to Zach Braff, it was really going to terrorists.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Wow. Well, at least they’re not on tinder.

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: You think that, wouldn’t you?

Steve Craft: No.

President Obama: Well, just look at this profile that CIA recently intercepted.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Why was the CIA on tinder?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: That’s not important. But you see this profile? [Cut to a male tinder profile.] Seems like a nice normal hunk, right? But look at his interests. It says very clearly. That is, “D.T.J”. Down to Jahad. [Cut to President Obama] I mean, luckily we were able to track him down via LinkedIn. Which is, it turns out, a whole separate terrorist organization.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: That actually makes a lot of sense. Now, Mr. President, much has been made of the correlation you have assembled. But it sounds like America is burying the brunt of this campaign.

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Hey, Steve. That’s just how we roll. We roll slow and deliberately. Almost like we have no idea what we’re rolling to. Then someone pushes us and suddenly we’re rolling straight down hill into oncoming traffic.

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Finally, Mr. President, you made the point that ISIS and the Islamic faith are in no way connected. You still believe that?

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Actually, I’m beginning to think there is some connection. For example, did you know that the first I in ISIS stands for Islamic? I mean, who knew?

[Cut to Steve Craft]

Steve Craft: Mr. President, some of what you’ve said tonight is a little worrysome. That combined with the recent security breaches of the White House–

[Cut to President Obama]

President Obama: Steve, Steve, Steve. We had problems with our secret service. But I promise you, we’ve taken care of it.

[A security walks to President Obama]

Security: Excuse me, Mr. President. There is a man with a sharp screwdriver to see you. We think that this might be time sensitive as he was running across the front lawn. You know what? I’ll just have him wait in the Oval Office.

[Security walks away]

President Obama: Well, Steve, I should probably go take care of that, right? But it was nice talking to you. And live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!

Ben Franklin: I don’t know what that means.

[Cut to Ms. Joan Rivers]

Ms. Joan Rivers: Speaking of bi, I see you Freddie Mercury. [Cut to Freddie Mercury on his yellow flashy jacket.] You’re so skinny with that hugs mustache. You look like

a gay broom.

Freddie Mercury: You know, wonderful, darling. Wonderful! Mama-mia, mama-mia.

[Cut to Ms. Joan Rivers]

Ms. Joan Rivers: When Freddie died, people were surprised he was gay. Are you serious? You’re so gay, even your teeth aren’t straight.

[Starts with Forgotten TV Gems intro] [Cut to Reese De’What in his set]

Reese De’What: Good afternoon. I’m Reese De’What. Welcome to the Forgotten TV Gems. Today, we look back at the short lived soap opera “Supported Women”. The first serial drama to break away from the soap opera cliche of Katty, backstabbing female character. And instead of present women as nurturing and empathetic. Audiences tuned in and whatever the opposite of droves is. Why did they not tune in? I do not know. I am not a good guesser. Just ask my wife. She asked me to guess what she did today. And I said, “I don’t know. Sit your ass into the car.” Worst anniversary ever.

Let’s watch a scene from a “Supportive Women” now.

[Cut to a scene from “Supportive Women”. Two women are standing in office.] Miss Mondre: Monica, you’ve made quite an impression in the short time you’ve been here.

[Cut to Monica]

Monica: Thank you Ms. Mondre. I enjoy the work that I do.

[Cut to Miss Mondre]

Miss Mondre: Well, if you’re not careful, you’ll work yourself to death. Say, did I just hear a knock at the door?

[Cut to Miss Mondre and Monica. Monica looks away at the door while Miss Mondre puts something in Monica’s glass of water.]

Monica: Well, I don’t think so.

Miss Mondre: Oh, my mistake. Well, here you go. [Miss Mondre gives the glass of water to Monica] [Monica takes the glass and drinks the water]

Monica: This isn’t just water, is it?

[Cut to Miss Mondre]

Miss Mondre: Not quite. And the effects should be kicking in right about now.

[Cut to Monica choking]

Monica: I feel, [chokes again] better!

[Cut to Miss Mondre]

Miss Mondre: Yeah, it’s emergency because I noticed you were coughing earlier.

[Cut to Miss Mondre and Monica]

Monica: Thank you. That is so sweet.

Miss Mondre: Well, you’re welcome.

[Cut to Monica looking at the camera making a face] [Cut to Miss Mondre looking at the camera making a face] [Cut back to Reese De’What]

Reese De’What: Isn’t that weird? Women being nice and not hurtful to each other. Audiences clearly would have rather seen that white boss lady grabbed that other girl by her weave and jack-smack her across the lobby and into the break room. And that is a review quote from Variety magazine. The big one. The one that comes out on the weekends that recaps everything.

Here’s another scene from “Supportive Women.”

[Cut to a scene from “Supportive Women”. Taran is holding Monica from the back in the office.]

Taran: I need you. Kiss me.

Monica: I can’t. You’re married to my best friend.

[Cut to Aidy walking in on them]

Aidy: What’s going on in here?

[Cut to Monica and Taran]

Monica: Your husband tried to kiss me but I said no.

[Cut to Aidy]

Aidy: And I believe you.

[cut to Monica and Taran]

Monica: Thank you.

[Cut to Aidy]

Aidy: You’re welcome, girlfriend.

[Cut to Monica looking at the camera making a face] [Cut to Aidy looking at the camera making a face] [Cut to Taran looking confused] [Cut back to Reese De’What]

Reese De’What: Did you see that? Even that man in the scene comprehend the way these women were acting towards each other. Women are instinctively awful to each other. Yesterday, I saw a gal trip another gal and called her an old pig just because she had the same iPhone case. I think that’s what she said. It happened kind of, far away. Here’s one last very dramatic scene from “Supportive women.” Enjoy.

[Cut to a scene from “Supportive Women”. Monica has a gun in her hand.]

Monica: It’s all going to be better soon. Ha-ha-ha-ha. She won’t know what hit her.

[Cut to Rosa holding a mop]

Rosa: Miss, what are you doing in here?

[Cut to Monica and Rosa]

Monica: [pointing a gun at Rosa] Don’t move, Rosa. Stay right where you are.

[Cut to Rosa being scared.] [Cut to Monica]

Monica: Because I have a gun I wanna give you. I know you live in a crappy neighborhood. I’d feel terrible if anything happened to you. You’re such a cool chic.

[Cut to Rosa smiling]

Rosa: Thank you. I’ll use that gun in my neighborhood for sure. What a considerate gift.

[Cut to Monica and Rosa]

Monica: I’m so glad you liked it. Here.

[Monica mistakenly pulls the trigger and shoots Rosa] [Monica holds Rosa]

Monica: Rosa, it was a mistake.

Rosa: I know that dummy. Don’t give it a second thought. You were just trying to be nice. Just all me an ambulance. I’ll be fine. You smell good.

Monica: Aw, gracious.

Rosa: Bienvenida.

[Rosa dies in Monica’s arms.] [Cut to Monica looking at the camera making a face] [Cut back to Reese De’What]

Reese De’What: That character died with a smile on her face. I do not know why. Do not ask me those things. This is not why I’m here. Not at this stage in the game. Thank you for watching Forgotten Television Gems. I have been Reese De’What. Good night.
