And K stands for Katheline. Now, most of you probably know me from “This Is Us.” [cheers and applause] Thank you. Which is the saddest thing you can watch on TV other than the news. You know, I actually have reputation for being pretty sensitive. And what can I say? I’m an actor. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. But I promise tonight that I won’t get overwhelmed because, um– [starts getting emotional]

It’s SNL, you know? I mean, how lucky am I to be here? And on top of everything I’ve gotten to do in the last few years, it’s just like the icing on the cake. But, whoo! Get it together, Sterling Katheline. It’s all good.

But everyone has been really supportive. So, if you’re fan of “This Is Us”, be sure to tune in to the after show, “That Was Them.” Or a spinoff where all black family adopts a white child called, “This Us”. It’s really beautiful. You know, the whole cast of “This Is Us” is so close. It feels like a real family, you know? Mandy, Milo, and my mama, [getting emotional] and my papa.

[yelling] No! No, no, no. Come on Brown! Come on, baby. Whoof! Hosting SNL is a dream come true. It’s such a whirlwind and I’ve been happy just to be along for the ride and to the cast, thank you for making me feel at home. Like, my first day here, Kenan comes up to me. I mean, Kenan Thompson! He is seriously like one of my– [getting emotional] He’s like one of my heroes. You know. And he said, “I got this idea where we play sidemen twins that are attached at the butts.” I mean Kenan brought that idea to me. You know? [sobbing] I’m so honored. I’m so– I’m so blessed. Man! I’m sorry. Just give me a second, please.

[Leslie Jones walks in]

Leslie Jones: Starling, we have got to get on with the show. This is the thing.

[cheers and applause]

Sterling K. Brown: Leslie Jones, everybody. Queen!

Leslie Jones: Yeah, that don’t work with me. I’m a grown ass woman. Um, Sterling, you gotta stop crying. You are ruining you for me.

Sterling K. Brown: Yeah. I know. I know. But Leslie, I just got to say, you are such an inspiration.

Leslie Jones: Okay.

Sterling K. Brown: I mean, just think of how far you’ve come.

Leslie Jones: Okay.

Sterling K. Brown: Ay! You know, you are the funniest person on this show!

Leslie Jones: [excited] I mean, that’s what I’ve been saying.

Sterling K. Brown: You the best!

Leslie Jones: You the best!

Sterling K. Brown: I promise I’ll keep it together, you know?

[Sasquatch takes Randy’s hat and pees on it.]

Randy: Oh! He’s peeing on my hat, Matt!

Matt: He’s marking you. The process has begun.

[Pete is taking pictures of Sasquatch and Randy]

Randy: Don’t post that.

[Sasquatch gestures for Randy to put the hat back on.]

Put it on? Oh!

Matt: Oh, bro. That’s not good.

[Sasquatch pulls Randy towards the fire.]

Randy: What are you doing? Matt? Matt?

Matt: Just let him do it, Randy.

[Sasquatch makes Randy sit near the fire. He is placing his butt on Randy’s shoulders.]

Randy: What is this?

Pete: Ha-ha-ha-h.

Randy: Wiping his ass on my hat.

Matt: It will be over before you know it, bro.
Pete: Randy, catch!

[Pete throws a baseball bat to Randy. Randy catches it.]

Randy: [pointing the bat to the Sasquatch] Batter up!

[Sasquatch punches Randy again. It takes the baseball bat and starts hitting Randy with it. Randy runs into the tent.]

Matt, he has the bat.

[Sasquatch runs to the tend and start hitting it from the outside. It pulls the whole tent into the bushes.]

Jackie: Oh, no. Randy. He is–

[Randy jumps in]

Randy: Right here. I slipped out the back-flap of the tent. He may have a big foot, but I have a big brain.

[Sasquatch runs in near Randy again]

Shawn: Sounds good to me.

Doctor: Alright. Fantastic. Do you smoke?

Shawn: Umm, no.

Doctor: I don’t like the sound of that “Umm.” Are you sure?

Shawn: Okay. I do smoke. But not that much.

Doctor: Alright. Any drinking?

Shawn: Uh, twice a week.

Doctor: Um-hmm.

Shawn: Alright. Alright. Like, four times a week.

Doctor: There we go. Are you sexually active?

Doctor: Wait. You don’t love her?

Shawn: Is this a medical question?

Doctor: You know what? Just never mind. Protected or unprotected?

Shawn: Unprotected.

Doctor: [squeaky voice] Oh, what? [smiling]

Shawn: Hey! Look! Can we just talk about why it burns when I pee

[phone ringing] [talking on the phone] Hello. This is he. Who? Oh, the cancer lady. Yeah. You still got it. I gotta call you back. I’m in the middle of something.

[Doctor hangs up the phone]

So, okay. I’m confused Mr. Wilkins. You have unprotected sex with one woman and you don’t think anything is there?

Shawn: There isn’t. I already told you.

Doctor: Alright. Sure. I’ll lay off. I knew syphilis rotted the mind. I didn’t know it rotted the soul.

Shawn: I have syphilis?

Doctor: I don’t know, man.

Shawn: Doc, look, just let it rest. We keeping it casual. When we started hooking up we both said we weren’t looking for anything. It’s not that deep.

Doctor: You know what, man? You should get out of my office coz I don’t treat fools.

Shawn: [yelling] Hey, I’m no fool, alright? She’s married to her job and I’m focused on my tech decks right now. It would never work out.

Doctor: Not talking like that, it won’t. But I think the young man who came in here earlier, the confident young man who bangs it down raw dog, it could work out for him. For what do I know? I’m just some Harvard doctor.

Shawn: Look, doc. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to yell at you but would we just move on with the exam?

Doctor: Yeah. Yeah. Let me listen to your heart. [Doctor puts on his stethoscope] Oh. Oh, well.

Shawn: What is it?

Doctor: You’ve been hurt before.

Shawn: Yeah. Real bad.

Doctor: Mr. Wilkins, your heart seems to be saying, “Go to her. Don’t you see? This is meant to be. Stop standing in your own way.”

Shawn: I don’t know. I don’t know. What if she says no?

Doctor: What if she says yes?

Shawn: You’re right. [looks at his watch] Oh, man. I have to go now. She’s out her way to the airport. She’s moving to London for life.

[Shawn turns to the door to leave. Doctor stops him.]

Doctor: Not so fast. I can’t let you go, not dressed like that.

[Doctor pulls out a suit and a flower bouquet from his office’s corner.]

Shawn: You know. It’s true what they say about doctors. They do save lives.

Doctor: [looking at his stethoscope] I wonder how this thing actually works.

T’Challa: Often, we take the form of a spirit animal. I am a panther.

Oni: And I am a panther.

T’kana: No, thank you.

M’Butu: Come on, man. You don’t never eat my cooking. This here is lion’s meat. The goo stuff. Check this here out. [M’Butu hold the burger like the monkey holds Simba in Lion King.] [singing Lion King song.] [After a moment, M’Butu takes a bite.]

Oni: Uncle M’Butu! Please, T’Challa. What is your concern?

T’Challa: I am much troubled. Wakanda is in the verge of civil war. The Jubari are preparing to attack from the mountains. I am considering my first strike.

T’kana: My son, the Jubari are proud people. If you approach them with respect, they will return it.

M’Butu: Shh! Not likely! Ha-ha. Let me tell you something about the mountain folks, man. They are sneaky. And they all smell like goat milk.

T’kana: Um, M’Butu, thank you. I’m so glad I get to spend eternity with you together. Um, T’Challa, know this, for all of history there has been war. But only once in a while in a generation are there men who will come together– [M’Butu puts the burger in T’kana’s mouth] No! No, thank you.

M’Butu: You wanna taste it?

T’kana: No, thank you. Once in a generation, there are men who are committed–

M’Butu: [putting burger in T’kana’s mouth again] This is baby lion.

T’kana: I said no. No. Committed to peace.

M’Butu: Come on. Try a little bit. [M’Butu rubs the burger all over T’kana’s mouth.]

T’kana: I don’t want it!

M’Butu: I’m sorry, man. I’ll back off. But hey, T’Challa, stick around, man. You know what happens when you go away. We just sit here. Yeah. They all turn into panthers. I turn into a warthog again. And then they all start hunting me, man, because all they see is bacon. It’s hard. Help me out. Just for the weekend.

T’Challa: Oh! Here, have a komoyo bead.

M’Butu: Oh! That’s nice. Yeah. That’s real nice. You know, two would be nicer.

T’Challa: No

M’Butu: Alright. Well, you alright with me, T’Challa. Come on, y’all, let’s party, man! Somebody play my music.

[music playing. The other relatives come close to the barbecue and start dancing with M’Butu.]

T’Challa: [to T’kana] Perhaps, I should return to seek guidance for my people.

T’kana: No. Stay. He’s worse when he’s a warthog.

M’Butu: Man, for real. What time of day is it? I don’t know.
