Hooray, Saturday Night Live is Back This Week! Here Are the OK! Editors' Favorite Moments Ever
The reality is, we still have a few more days at our desks before the weekend. So to celebrate, the OK! editors have reminisced about their all-time favorite SNL moments. I’m sure we’re not alone with these classic sketches, so sit back, relax, (in between finishing your work of course) and rewatch these hilarious moments until we get some new ones from the SNL crew in just a few days.

I could watch the “More Cowbell” sketch a million times and would still cry from laughter. From Jimmy Fallon cracking up in the background to Will Ferrell jamming out, the whole skit is true perfection!

Andy Samberg really blew up for me after “I’m On A Boat“. His nautical ode has T-Pain decked out in a captain’s uniform singing lines like “It’s a big blue watery road, Poseidon!” It’s a classic and the song will forever be on my iPod.

Almost every single sentence of this sketch is quotable—and quote I did, every day of seventh grade. This was before YouTube, which goes to show the legacy of the character. It has everything that made Chris Farley funny: a weirdly angry character, a goofy outfit, and physical comedy.
Haley Longman, Entertainment Editor
To me, the best part of Saturday Night Live is watching the actors laugh at themselves. This Debbie Downer sketch, featuring then-host Lindsay Lohan, gets me every time because literally everyone in the sketch just could not stop cracking up. Rachel Dratch, it’s all your fault!

Anything Stefon is the best. Sometimes if I’m in a bad mood I’ll put it on in the background while I’m working and I will literally laugh out loud to myself. It’s also fun to do your own Stefon impressions when your bored with friends.

HOW ON EARTH DO I PICK A FAVORITE? In recent years, my most favorite sketch was on the episode that Maya Rudolph hosted during Kristen Wiig‘s last season. The duo plays two vaguely Eastern European game show models and crack up the entire time. You can tell how much fun they have together and when they break character towards the end of the (otherwise pretty dull) sketch, I just about lose it.

I don’t know if it’s Betty White‘s reaction to her daughters’ song or… No, it’s definitely Kristen Wiig’s character in this clip that gets me going. Sorry, Betty! She’s only allowed upstairs—enough said.

Choosing a favorite SNL sketch is harder than choosing a favorite child, because those can’t make you laugh nearly as much as these do. But I had to go with Boston Teens. Nothing made me laugh harder than Jimmy Fallon and Rachel Dratch with their finest Boston accents. Throw in some Ben Affleck and you have pure magic.
