Seth Meyers' final Weekend Update segment on Saturday Night Live had everything: Joe Biden jokes, new terms for snow, a Mr. Burns impression and best of all, Stefon.
A few choice lines from his final fake newscast:
"This week, President Obama delivered the State of the Union address, while Vice President Joe Biden just delivered."
"Willie Robertson, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty, attended as a guest of Rep.Vance McAllister and no one was more upset about it than Louisiana Senator Bill Quackenbush."
"During a ceremony this week at the Vatican in which two doves were released by children in the name of world peace, a seagull and crow swooped down and attacked the doves. Said former Pope Benedict, 'Excellent, my pets.' "
"Lord, I'll never forget when I saw those first flakes of devil's dandruff," recalled hankie-clutching Atlanta snowstorm survivor Buford Callaway (Taran Killam). He gave TV weathermen a few other nicknames for the white stuff they can use for the next snowfall, including "New England clam powder," "Connecticut confetti" and "Obama's white friend."
After Meyers delivered his final joke, co-anchor Cecily Strong choked up a little as she told him how much she enjoyed sharing the Weekend Update desk with him, before telling him, "A couple of friends wanted to stop by and say something." In rolled Meyer's former co-anchor Amy Poehler and Bill Hader in Stefon garb.
Meyers: "What are you guys doing here?"
Poehler: "We're here to take you to the other side."
Stefon: "We're like a gateway drug. You know, like bath salts and meow-meow."
Poehler: "We are so proud of you. You've been the heart of the show for over a decade."
Stefon: "You're like the Sting of SNL."
Meyers: "Why am I like the Sting of SNL?"
Stefon: "Because it takes you 12 years to finish."
Cecily Strong: "We are going to miss you so much."
Stefon, hissing at the junior anchor: "YOU BARELY KNOW HIM!"
Strong: "Stefon, Seth has told me so much about you."
Stefon: "Keep my man's name out of your mouth."
Meyers: "Can I ask you something? What's it like out there?"
Poehler: "The world outside of SNL? Seth, my friend, it's so weird and cool, and God, how do I put this ..."
Stefon: "That place has everything."
Poehler: "Opportunities and new adventures ..."
Stefon: "Homeless weightlifters who look like The Croods ..."
Poehler: "New friends, a new show."
Stefon: "Japanese daredevil Yolo Ohno. Human DVRs ..."
Meyers: "I'm sorry, what are human DVRs?"
Stefon: "It's that thing where a midget sits on your TV and tells you what happened on Scandal. And unlike a regular cable box, it goes down all the time."
That last one left Meyers momentarily speechless. Which opened the door for another SNL alum, Andy Samberg, to come in and serenade him with a tone-deaf rendition of Boyz II Men's It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.
Meyers: "Andy, buddy, thanks for coming to my last show."
Samberg: "It's your last show?"
Meyers: "It is my last show and I'd just want to say being out here with my friends and co-anchors and my dear friend — and my husband — is the perfect way to end."
And as the camera pulled out, Fred Armisen could be seen wandering the set dressed as his old Weekend Update correspondent, blind former New York Gov. David Patterson.
