DAVE | If you were going to start your own group right now, with the people who have made names for themselves at Saturday Night Live, and you had to pick eight people, who would they be?
TINA | Oh, like an All-Star band to do a sketch show with … wow, let’s see … eight of them I get … living, dead, anybody …

MAYA RUDOLPH | 2000-07
Tina | She can do anything.
BILL MURRAY | 1977-80
Tina | I don’t know Bill Murray. Sometimes I’ve tried to meet Bill Murray, and I just get scared. I feel like he looks at me, and he can just smell how uncool I am.
AMY POEHLER | 2002-08
GILDA RADNER | 1975-80
JAN HOOKS | 1986-91
Tina | I guess we need a couple more dudes. …
