Most of the women in your life will outlast the men in your life. The SNL ladies — Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Tina — and I text pictures of our kids back and forth all the time. It keeps us connected. As my nanny used to say, the older you get the more important it is to know people that knew you when. | Amy Poehler

Jodi: Let’s welcome two guys who’ve worked here for years, but we’ve never introduced ourselves because we always had to go on the show. Please welcome from our crew, Tony and Lou.
Betty: Hey Lou, you got a big boom?
Jodi: It’s always hanging right over my face, your boom.
Betty: Tell you what, Lou. Put your boom in my hand. It’ll look bigger.
Jodi: Look at that beard. It’s so thick. You hairy? You hirsute?
Betty: Lots of pheromones and hormones. Very masculine.
Jodi: Tony, I’m not gonna forget about you. You do camera?
Betty: Look at you, babyfaced Tony over there. You peepin’ at us, Tony? You like peepin’ at us, Tony? You like peepin’ at us?
Jodi: Yeah Tony, you peepin’? Huh? With your camera? You’re watchin’ us Tony with your camera?
Betty: Keep peepin’ at us Tonyyyyyy!
Maya Rudolph’s tribute to her mother, Minnie Riperton, on SNL.
Julie Andrews, Tina Fey and Tony Bennett are among the stars set to pay tribute to Carol Burnett, the 2013 recipient of the Kennedy Center’s annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Tim Conway and Vicki Lawrence, two of the regular cast members on “The Carol Burnett Show, will also celebrate the 80 year-old’s career at the Oct. 20 salute at the Kennedy Center, which PBS will broadcast nationwide Nov. 24.
I mean, the only thing Lorne ever said to me [that had anything to do with gender] was ‘If I had known that you were pregnant when you did that sketch where you fell through the piano, I would not have let you do it.’ But I hadn’t told him I was pregnant yet.
Ana was the first person on SNL to ever be pregnant on the air, and then came Tina and then me. We were like these girls in high school, carrying their binders really close to their stomachs, not telling anybody about their teenage pregnancy. Amy was literally on the show until she went into labor. We were going to do a Bronx Beat on a Jon Hamm show, and she knew that her baby was due on Sunday, so she was going to do her show on Saturday and have her baby on Sunday. And we rehearsed Friday night, and Saturday I got a call that her water broke and she was in the hospital."
I have a lot of chosen sisters, women in my life who I consider my family and sisters. | Amy Poehler
