    The best sketches are usually the ones where everyone is losing their shit because of one person. Especially if they got the veterans losing it.

    The look Kate gives Aidy and Bobby when they start breaking is the best because she knows everyone is going down 😂😂😂

    I love how Cecily is able to gently cue Ryan at 5:08 by saying the first word
    Of his line, “man.” He’s laughing so hard he could have missed it lmao. I love how Cecily is not only a outstanding jack of all trades cast member she’s such a team player. It seems like she’s always trying to help everybody be their best!

    When the girl interviewer almost broke character after the “knocker” story, I died. Kate McKinnon knew she almost broke her. You could hear it in her voice after. Lol

    Kate & Cecily are the hardest to break, but when they do they have everyone rolling. They’re also the best imo. 🖤

    Agent Morris:I'm agent Morris with the NSA, and this is special agent Kirkpatrick. Now we know you've all been through quite an ordeal, so we appreciate you making the trip to Washington on such short notice.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Yes, you three experienced the first verified case of alien abduction, so naturally you are of great interest to the United States government.

    Sharon:This is nuts man, I mean-- We're just small town buds who saw a UFO in the woods, I mean, now we are hanging out with the government.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Okay. Now after the blue light pulled you into the spacecraft, what is your next memory?

    Sharon: I came to and saw a beautiful being, made of like a beautiful calming light.

    Todd: Yeah, same here, that being touched my head and I felt every emotion in its purest form. It was amazing; I cried, sir.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Okay, and you Miss Rafferty?

    Miss rafferty: Wow, what floor were you guys on? I woke up in a dirty metal dome and 40 little grey aliens watched me pee in a steel bowl.
    Then they took the bowl, walked out.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Interesting, were these beings also bathed in light?

    Miss Rafferty: Uh no, nope, they were grey with big fat eyes and little mouths. They just stared while I peed. I don't think I was dealing with the top brass.

    Agent Morris: And how did they instruct you to urinate? Was that telepathically?

    Miss Rafferty: Uh, no, no. I woke up, I had to pee like a camel, so I started peeing, and one of the grey aliens slapped the wall and pointed at the bowl.
    So I got the hint, I kind of duck-walked over to the bowl and peed in there.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Yes, I, I see. Now when you all awoke were you clothed?

    Sharon: Um, I was wrapped in like, a robe made out of warm, glowing energy.

    Todd: Yeah, like a blanket made out of pure love.

    Miss Rafferty: Yeah, a little different for me. I uh, I had my shirt I came in with, but my pants were gone. So uh, my coot-coot was out.
    I was full porky pigging it in a drafty dome.

    Agent Kirkpatrick: Now did you all stay on the same ship the entire time or--

    Todd: Well, you know my body did, but my consciousness was shown what lies beyond time and space.
    It was so beautiful, I'm sorry I'm just crying about--just thinking about it a little bit.

    Agent Morris: Do you need a tissue?

    Todd: What? No that's alright, I'll just, I'll use my shirt.

    Sharon: Um, the alien showed my mind the furnace of all creation, what we would call God.

    Miss Rafferty: WHAT? These fancy cats are seeing God, meanwhile, I'm starting phase two, which is me sitting on a stool, while 40 grey aliens take turns
    gently batting my knockers around. Did y'all get the knockers stuff?

    Sharon: Um, no, no knockers stuff. Sorry.
    Agent Morris: And did you feel threatened Miss Raferty?

    Miss Rafferty: No, no, no, no, no, no. They were, uh, they were real respectful about it, they were, they were in a line, and then, uh, one by one they would step up, slap a knocker, then go to the end of the line, wait for another turn. It didn't hurt it was like-- I'm sorry pardon me Sharon.
    It was kind of like that. No harm, no foul.
    Sharon: Ow, ow that hurts a litt... That hurts.

    Agent Morris: Um, perhaps they were collecting biological data?

    Miss Rafferty: No, nope, that felt super off the books. I swear to God there was one grey alien by the door just kind of peeking. I think he was the lookout. Look, it wasn't my worst Wednesday night.
    Agent Kirkpatrick:And how did the aliens return you all to earth?

    Sharon: Wow, I was carried down gently. He's crying. I was carried down gently in a cradle of light and placed into a soft bed of wildflowers.

    Todd: Yeah, yep, the light laid me down like a baby in a meadow near my house. I was smiling and weeping tears of joy, sir.

    Miss Rafferty: All right well now this miffs me a little bit. Because, uh, my grand exit was out of what was basically like a big airplane toilet, okay?
    I, uh, shoot--I dropped down seven feet onto the roof of a Long John Silver's. They threw out my pants separately, they missed the roof.
    My slacks landed in a fricking pine tree, 30 feet away. So I had to just chill up there with my damn coot-coot and prune chute hanging out
    until the place opened up.

    Todd: Man, you got screwed.

    Miss Rafferty: Oh, you think Todd?

    Agent Morris: Well we'd like to take you guys for physical examinations now.

    Miss Rafferty: Yeah, all right, is there going to be any knocker stuff?

    Agent Morris: Um, possibly, I'm sorry.

    Miss Rafferty: Ah, nah, don't be, just be gentle because they're pretty banged up.
    Tell me about God, what's God's deal?
