The best thing about Bill Hader hosting SNL:
He’s hosting on October 11th. October 11th is the exact day that the show premiered. Bill Hader will be standing on home base in 8H doing his monologue live exactly 40 years after the show was done for the first time. That just blows my mind and warms my heart
Bill: When I did my goodbye as Stefon with me and Seth and everything, we were crying, we all started crying, and then what happened was I went out, I did my goodbye, I cried, and then Kristen… she didn’t tell me, I thought she was in LA, and I look, and she was standing there, she surprised me and she came and gave me a hug and I was like “bawwww— I love you.”
And Lorne was like, “You can stay, if you want.”
Jon: “(As Lorne) There’s plenty of room.”
Bill: “(As Lorne) I can give you whatever you want.”
Excited is an understatement. This. Is. Everything.

Seth: You had to often do the hardest job at SNL, because you were such a good impressionist and you played so many political figures, you had to start the show. You were in so many cold opens. Which you always talked about how stressful they were.
Bill: I hated doing cold opens
