Darrel Hammond (Announcer): Ladies and gentlemen, Steve Carell.
[Steve walks to the stage][Applause and cheers]
Steve: Hi, thank you very much. Thank you. Hello, I am so excited to be here tonight. It is my third time hosting “SNL” and thank you. It’s been a while. It’s been 10 years, and I have been pretty busy doing movies. I actually have one coming out really soon.
Woman from the audience: Steve, [Cut to a woman from the audience standing and asking question] hey, can I ask a question?
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Yeah, okay. Guess we’re doing questions. Sure.
Woman from the audience: [Cut to the woman from the audience] First of all, big fan. I love all of your movies.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Oh, thank you.
Woman from the audience: [Cut to the woman from the audience] My question is, will you ever reboot “The Office”?
Steve: [Cut to Steve] No, actually, I don’t think so. It was a great experience. I love all of those people, but I just don’t think it’s the best idea. I think maybe we should just leave it alone. Okay. Next question. [Cut to the audience. Kenan also from the audience smiling and raising his hand to ask the question] Oh, yeah.
Kenan: Hey, Steve.
Steve: Hey. Are you [Cut to Kenan, nodding his head] Kenan or are you playing a fake audience member?
Kenan: I am Kenan. Believe me, dude, if I was acting, you would know it. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I also think you should reboot “The Office.”
Steve: Thanks, Okay. You know what, it would be like if someone wanted you to reboot “Kenan and Kel.” Right? [Cut to Kenan thinking]
Kenan: That would be an honor. [Cheers and applause]
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Fine. No, I get that. Just I don’t think it would be as good this time around. But thank you for that. Next question.
Ellie: [Cut to Ellie talking from the audience] Yes, hi Steve.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Oh, Hi! Ellie Kemper. [Cut to Ellie] Wow, Hi!
Ellie: Hi. People would really love to see an “Office” reboot. Yes. Especially me. I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve!
Steve: [Cut to Steve] I’m sorry, Ellie, I just don’t think it’s a good idea.
Ellie: [Cut to Ellie] You’re a jerk. [Ellie sits down]
Ed: [Cut to Ed in the audience] Hey, Steve.
Steve: Hey, Ed Helms. Hi. Wow! Ed Helms.
Ed: It’s so great to see you.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] It’s great to see you too.
Ed: [Cut to Ed] Yes, so, I just don’t think you understand just how much money we’re talking about. Like, you wouldn’t have to do all of those sad movies anymore.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] I don’t do those movies for money, I like doing them.
Woman from the audience: [Cut to the woman from the audience] Yeah, but you could all make some serious money.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Okay. You’re an audience member; this isn’t about you. And Ed, why don’t we just have a party instead? We can all catch up, get together. NO cameras, just friends?
Ed: [Cut to Ed] Oh we already do that. We just don’t invite you.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Okay. Wow, all right. Thanks, man.
Jenna: Steve. [Cut to Jenna in the audience]
Jenna: Steve, do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver?
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Not really.
Jenna: [Cut to Jenna] Okay. She said, “Steve, don’t be a dick, do the Reboot.”
Steve: [Cut to Steve] I don’t remember that at all.
Jenna: [Cut to Jenna] Well I do. Don’t you want to see what Pam and Jeff are up to these days?
Steve: [Cut to Steve] It’s Pam and Jim.
Jenna: [Cut to Jenna] Who cares? Why are you getting hung up on the details? Let’s just do the damn thing.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] No, Jenna, please I just don’t want—
Nancy: Honey, [Steve is searching for the speaker] [Cut to Nancy] honey.
Steve: Oh, it’s my wife, Nancy, and my kids. [Cut to Steve] Hi, guy! [Cut to Annie and Johnny and Nancy] Annie and Johnny and Nancy, say hi.
Nancy: Hi. We think you should probably do the show.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Honey, I just don’t want to spend that much time away from you guys.
Nancy: [Cut to Annie and Johnny and Nancy] Well, we don’t really need you to hand around anymore, right, kids? We’re good.
Steve: Are you serious? [Cut to Steve]
Nancy: [Cut to Annie and Johnny and Nancy] Yeah, we’re fine. No problem. Hey, you guys want to go? Let’s go.
Steve: [Cut to Steve] Where are you– Are you not even going to watch the show?
Nancy: No, see you later.
Steve: Okay, all right. Well, thanks. Feels like everybody wants this to happen. Do you guys want to see an “Office” Reboot? Is that what’s–
[Crowd cheering “Yes”]
