[Starts with SNL monologue intro]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Eddie Murphy!

[band playing music] [Eddie Murphy walks to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Audience: Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!

Eddie Murphy: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. It’s great to be back here, finally hosting “Saturday Night Live” for Christmas. [cheers and applause] This is the last episode of 2019, if you’re black, it is the first episode since I left back in 1984. It has been really long time. Here’s actually a picture of me back when I started.

[Cut to old picture of Eddie Murphy] [Cut to Eddie Murphy on stage]

Wow, I look at least five years younger there. You know what they say, money don’t crack. But so much has changed. I just had a new baby incidentally about a year ago. [cheers and applause] I actually have 10 kids now. 11, if you count Kevin Hart. I’m teasing. I love Kevin Hart so much but my kids are my whole life now. And if you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring stay at home, you know, father of 10 house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, I would have took that bet. “Who is America’s dad now?” I also have a movie on Netflix called “Dolomite Is My Name.” And we just finished a sequel to “Coming to America” as well. And if you’re wondering why I’ve been working so hard lately, it’s because 10 kids are very expensive.

[Tracy Morgan walks in]

Tracy Morgan: Yo!

Eddie Murphy: Tracy Morgan, ladies and gentlemen.

Tracy Morgan: Welcome home.

Eddie Murphy: Yeah! Its good to be here.

Tracy Morgan: You knew I wasn’t gonna miss this show for all the tea in Arizona. Did you get the sketch I wrote for you?

Eddie Murphy: Oh, yeah. The Jimmy Walker story.

Tracy Morgan: Yeah! It’s called Dy-no-mite Is My Name.

Eddie Murphy: Yeah. I don’t know if we’re going to do that, Dy-no-mite Is My Name.

Tracy Morgan: Well, whatever you need, I got your back. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be here. Like, literally, I was conceived on the “Delirious” tour bus.

Eddie Murphy: You know, that math doesn’t really add up.

[Chris Rock walks in]

Chris Rock: He, hey, man.

[cheers and applause]

Eddie Murphy: Chris Rock, ladies and gentlemen. Chris Rock, what are you doing here?

Chris Rock: Common man, I would not miss this show for the world. My kids love Lizzo.

[audience laughing]

Eddie Murphy: Hey! My kids love Lizzo too.

Chris Rock: Okay but, did you get my sketch?

Eddie Murphy: Oh, yeah, that “Law and Order” UTI sketch?

Chris Rock: Yeah, yeah. Instead of ice tea, it’s cranberry juice.

Eddie Murphy: That sounds kind of nasty for a Christmas show.

[Dave Chapelle walks in]

Dave Chappelle: Hey, hey.

[cheers and applause]

Eddie Murphy: Dave Chapelle! Dave Chappelle’s ladies and gentlemen. What a moment. What a moment we’re having.

Dave Chappelle: Well, did you get my sketch?

Eddie Murphy: Oh, yeah!

Dave Chappelle: It’s the one where TI has the drive through gynecology clinic.

Eddie Murphy: I don’t get it.

Dave Chappelle: It’s stupid. He just says stuff like, “I will check your Hammond expeditiously.” You know, I followed your blue print for my entire career.

Eddie Murphy: Did you?

Dave Chappelle: Yeah, yeah. Became the biggest staron television. And then I quit.

Eddie Murphy: Oh, all right. [4 takes a cigarette out and lights it] Hey, I did not know you could smoke on stage.

Dave Chappelle: You can’t.

Eddie Murphy: Oh! See, this is why I came back to “Saturday Night Live,” for moments like this. When was the last time we was all together like this?

Chris Rock: Last Thursday at Sinbad’s house.

Dave Chappelle: Right, man. Oh, you’re looking at half of Netflix’s budget right here.

Chris Rock: Thanks, Netflix.

Eddie Murphy: Thanks, Netflix.

Tracy Morgan: Not me, not me. I made all my money on the road.

Eddie Murphy: You mean touring?

Tracy Morgan: No, I got hit by a truck.

Eddie Murphy: Okay. Well, I’m glad you’re all here to support me. And I appreciate it.

Dave Chappelle: That’s the least we can do, man.

Chris Rock: That’s right. I remember when I got hired, Lorne told me, “You’re gonna be the next Eddie Murphy.” And then a year later, he said, “No, you’re not.”

[Beck Bennett walks in]

Beck Bennett: You said it, Chris Rock. And just to piggy back–

[Kenan Thompson walks in and pushes Beck Bennett away]

Kenan Thompson: No, we’re good on that.

[cheers nd applause]Sorry about that fellas. Please continue.

Chris Rock: Who the hell was that?

Tracy Morgan: Joe Piscopo.

Eddie Murphy: Hey, we’ve got a great show for you tonight. Lizzo is here.

[cheers and applause]

I’m back. Don’t turn the channel. We’ll be right back.

[cheers and applause] [band playing music] [Will Farrell walks in the door and to the stage]

Will Farrell: Thank you, thank you very much. It is so nice to be back hosting “Saturday Night Live.” New York city in the house. Get your hands up. Get your hands up. Is this a thing that people still do? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. Like I was saying, it is so great to be back here in studio8-H. I was a cast member for seven years. I cherished every moment that I was here. Really some of the best times that I—I’m sorry. One second. Excuse me. But you look like Ryan Reynolds.

[Cut Ryan Reynolds sitting between the audience.] [cheers and applause]

Ryan Reynolds: Yeah. I get that a lot.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Is it you?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yes, it’s me.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Oh, wow. Okay, cool. Welcome to the show.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Thank you. I’m a big fan.

Will Farrell: Big fan of me?

Ryan Reynolds: Yeah. Oh, okay.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Fine. I didn’t know you were going to be here. Yeah. Okay. So, where were we? I – I can’t believe you’re here. God, Ryan Reynolds is here.

[cheers and applause] [Cut to Ryan Reynolds waving] [Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Cool, cool. Okay. Sorry, you good?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yes, I’m good. I’m just here to enjoy the show.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Yes, of course. Anyway, always great to be hack in the new blork. New York. New York. Speaking English much? Got milk? Is it really you?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yes, it’s me.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: And you came to the show because—

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: To see you. Like I said, we’re big fans.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: We’re? Like we? Who’s we?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: My wife and I.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: You mean Blake Lively?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yes.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: And she’s watching, too?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yeah. She’s at home, but yeah.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: And she likes me, too?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Probably more than me.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: [laughing] Okay. That’s not too shabby. Great. Fun. TSA pre check what? Sorry. What am I saying? Okay. So, anyway, I was saying New York city in the house. I have never gotten that phrase, “In the house.” Like, all of New York city could, you know, fit into one house. Imagine the line for the bathroom.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Will? You’ve got to stop looking at me, okay?

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Oh, am I? Am I? Is it too much?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Yeah, it’s—It’s a little much. Yeah.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Backstreet’s back all right. What? Why would I say that? Why? Why would I say that in front of Ryan Reynolds. You would never mess up like that, would you?

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Can you just pretend I’m not here?

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: No way. It’s too late. I’m locked in. It’s like the rest of the audience has disappeared.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Will, just do the monologue.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: No, the monologue is terrible. But you know what’s not terrible? Ryan Reynolds. Yeah! Ryan Reynolds. He took ‘Deadpool” from scrap heap and turned it into box office gold.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: Are you impersonating Tracy Morgan?

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Whenever I get nervous, I go into Tracy Morgan. In fact, I delivered my wedding vows in his voice. I was so nervous. It was a big day.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: No, no, no, no, no. Don’t do that.

[Cut to Will Farrell]

Will Farrell: Will Farrell can do whatever he wants.

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: I just wanted to enjoy the show. Please stop addressing me.

[Cut to Will Farrell. Tracy Morgan walks in.]

Tracy Morgan: Ryan Reynolds, you listen to me. The prophecy must be fulfilled. This is Will Ferrell. Ferrell. He can do what he wants to do. I suckled from his comedy bosom. And like a young Luke Skywalker, he filled me with strength. The rest is as they say, “It’s puppy dogs and gum drops.”

[Cut to Ryan Reynolds]

Ryan Reynolds: What’s happening?

[Cut to Will Farrell and Tracy Morgan]

Will Farrell: The prophecy! Oh, my goodness, thank you, Tracy! I feel so much better.

Tracy Morgan: Anything for you, Farrell. If you talk like me again, I’m going to bust your ass.

Will Farrell: As you should. Yes, yes! We’ve got a great show for you tonight. King Princess is here. So, don’t go away.

Both: Backstreet’s back all right!
