Melissa Villaseñor

[Starts with Colin Jost in his set]

Colin Jost: Well, there’s simply no denying it guys, it’s the holiday season. Here with some of her favorite Christmas albums is our own Melissa Villaseñor.

[Melissa Villaseñor slides in. She is dressed like Dolly Parton.]

Melissa Villaseñor: Yeah. Hey, Colin. I’m so excited to be here to talk about Christmas music.

Colin Jost: Yeah. Melissa, I’m a little nervous to ask you this but are you dressed as Dolly Parton?

Melissa Villaseñor: What? No. This is my special Christmas outfit. [pointing at her breasts] And these are my regular big old things. I’m here to talk about Christmas.

Colin Jost: Are you sure? I’m just asking because you’ve been trying to get your Dolly Parton impression on the show for a while now.

Melissa Villaseñor: No. I’m 100% just here to sing Christmas songs. Okay?

Colin Jost: Alright. What are some of your favorites?

Melissa Villaseñor: Mm. It’s a tough one, but definitely Holly Jolly Christmas. It’s so joyful. Here, I’ll sing it.

[music playing]
[singing in Dolly Parton’s voice] Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
it’s the best time of the year
now I don’t know if there’ll be snow
but have a cup of cheer

Oh, I just love Christmas.

Colin Jost: Yeah. That’s great, but you were just doing a Dolly Parton impression.

Melissa Villaseñor: Hey buddy, eyes up here. [telling Colin to stop staring at her breasts and look at her eyes.]

Colin Jost: What are you pointing down for?

Melissa Villaseñor: You know another song I really like? Jingle Bells, okay? What a classic. Right? It goes like this.

[music playing]
[singing in Dolly Parton’s voice like the song “Jolene”] Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle bells all the way
I’m begging of you please don’t take Jolene

Colin Jost: Yeah. That’s not how Jingle Bells goes and it’s also not really how Jolene goes. Melissa, just if you want to do Dolly song, just be up front with me.

Melissa Villaseñor: [pointing at her breasts] I am being extremely upfront. I almost had trouble walking out here. Okay, fine. Yeah. News flash. I want to be Dolly. Who doesn’t? She’s the coolest. She’s a great singer. She writes her own songs. She donated $1 million to the vaccine. plus, there’s a new story this week that she saved a kid from getting hit by a car. Which made me mad because I was speeding up to hit him. Kidding. Alright. Look. I’ll sing you one actual Christmas song. A real one this time. Okay? Growing up, my family and I, we would go to mass, midnight mass which was in Latin. This was my hymn.

[music playing]

Colin Jost: Melissa, I know what this is.

Melissa Villaseñor: [singing] Working 9 to 5
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’ and no givin’
They just use your mind
Colin Jost: Melissa Villaseñor, everyone.

Melissa Villaseñor: I’m not coming to work next week. [pointing at her breasts] I’m going to get big thing.

Colin Jost: For Weekend Update, I’m Colin Jost.

Michael Che: I’m Michael Che. Goodnight.

Melissa Seals the Deal

Melissa Villaseñor

[Starts with Melissa talking to his date at her apartment door.]

Melissa: Oh, man. I had the best time. Well, it’s getting late. Goodnight. Unless, you wanna come in for a little bit. [There’s no one. Melissa is just talking alone.] You do? Oh, cool. [Melissa opens the door] Lead the way.

[Melissa gets two glasses of wine and lights the fireplace. She then sits on the sofa alone.]

Can I get you anything else? Oh, sorry, I don’t have any cigars. I’ll add that to my shopping list. Do you like movies? Me too. Okay, favorite movie on the count of three. Ready? One, two, three. “Flubber.” Ah! I was totally going to say “American History X.” I swear. [starts blushing] Why are you looking at me like that? I’m only looking at you coz you’re looking at me. Stop it. I’m not the most beautiful girl in the United States. [smiling] Okay, I guess I am. [kisses the air] Ha-ha. Your tongue’s tiny. [starts kissing the air intimately.] [Cut to Melissa in her bed. She’s wearing her gown.]

What? Your scars don’t bother me. I think it’s pretty cool you were attacked by a wolf. Wait, before we go any further, there’s something you should know. [whispering] You don’t have to be gentle with me.

[Cut to Melissa waking up in the morning]

Good morning, you tall drink of milk. Last night was crazy. I’ll be right back. Don’t go anywhere.

[Melissa walks into the bathroom. She looks at the commode.]

What the heck? Did you plug up my toilet? Oh, man! Get out of my house, you weirdo. And cut your toenails. My legs are all cut up.

[door shutting sound]

Oh, Meliss, you sure know how to pick em’.
