In a skit where Gomez played the host of a TV show about notable inventions in history, Martin, five-time “SNL” host and co-star of Gomez’s “Only Murders in the Building,” appeared as ‘gag inventor’ Archie Gizmo, reports ‘Variety’.
He talks to the camera about his early career creating a whoopie cushion prototype.
“I knew it would be funny if your boss sat down and had a noise come out of his ass. But I just couldn’t figure out what a noise. I couldn’t break it, but then I met her. ”
Aidy Bryant appeared in a flashback to the 60s, smiling, dancing and farting.
“Miss Dina Beans,” Martin said.
“I saw her from afar. Her energy was magnetic. Her eyes were endless. And every time she sat down: gas.”
“It was that night that he realized the funniest sound that could come from an ass was a fart,” Gomez said.
Martin went on to talk about how he fell in love with Dina, as well as his bad luck.
When Bryant opened a box of peanuts and four live snakes came out, Martin came up with the idea for stuffing boxes with fake snakes. When she was struck by lightning while shaking someone’s hand, he invented a manual bell, and so on.
“The biggest gag she ever blundered was marrying a guy like me. I love you, Dina Beans,” Martin said, reaching out to shake his wife with a buzzer hidden in his palm.
In her monologue, Gomez made jokes about her age difference with her “Only Murders in the Building” co-stars.
“I was so honored to work with Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after I googled them to find out who they were. I remember telling my friend that I had been cast on a show called ‘Only Murders ‘, and she said, ‘That sounds hot’. . Any hot co-stars?’ And I was like, ‘That depends. Do you like the banjo?'”
Season 1 of “Only Murders in the Building” debuted on Hulu in August 2021 and Season 2 will premiere in June.
The series follows Mabel Mora (Gomez), Charles-Haden Savage (Martin), and Oliver Putnam (Short), three New York neighbors who team up to solve the murder of Mabel’s childhood friend and Arconia roommate Tim Kono (Justin Cihi) while documenting their progress on a podcast.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s court battle was the focus of the cold open.
Kyle Mooney played Depp, who in real life alleged that Amber Heard once left a “fecal delivery” on their bed out of anger.
When shown a video of Depp’s property manager (Kenan Thompson) finding the ‘dookie’, Heidi Gardner, playing Heard’s attorney, pointed out that the video would not constitute proof that the feces came from a human, as Heard claims. the couple’s dogs.
“True, but I’ll allow it, because it sounds like fun. And this trial is for fun,” shouted Cecily Strong, playing the judge.
Parodying how the trial became such a pop culture moment, Strong said, “I think I’ve seen enough.”
“This trial has given me a lot to think about. On the one hand, I believe Mr. Depp’s story. But on the other hand, your constant smirk lets me know. This is not the first woman you drove so crazy she pooped in your bed.”
“I guess I’m known for being a real nightmare,” Mooney replied with a smile.
In another skit, the cast spoofed recently leaked photos and videos of the Broadway play “Take Me Out,” in which Jesse Williams appears fully nude.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first look at ‘A Storm Within’ by acclaimed Irish playwright Rory McFadden. And as you’re no doubt aware, there’s a penis in the show,” Thompson said. “Yeah, here we go and it better not be online enough. If you post it, you’ll lose the penis.”
