Take a look at a few of our favorite (and most-memorable!) liners from SNL’s all-star crew.

Kristen Wiig

“I can probably hear you better just ’cause I have really good ears . . . so I was in a listening contest this morning . . . so I came in first and second . . . so I just have really big ear drums . . . so probably bigger than yours so . . .”
– As Penelope on SNL

Maya Rudolph

“I don’t look my best when I wake up. But, I do feel beautiful when I’m tired and happy and I’ve had a good laugh and a glass of champagne.”

Tina Fey

“This week, penny collector Gene Sukie went to the bank and cashed in 10,000 pounds of pennies he had collected over 34 years, which were worth over 14,000 dollars. And, of course, I was in line behind him.”

Amy Poehler

“Take your risks now, as you grow older you become more fearful and less flexible. And I mean that literally. I hurt my knee this week on the treadmill and it wasn’t even on.”

Kate McKinnon

“If you asked me to seriously kiss someone on a screen, I would be very uncomfortable. But I will lick any part of your face.”

Rachel Dratch

“Not trying so hard, not planning ahead, just getting out of your own head and letting the magic happen.  You could apply this to any activity, of course.  You could apply it to life.”
-An excerpt from Girl Walks into a Bar

Molly Shannon

“Are you aware that I am rubber, and you are glue, and whatever you say to me bounces off, of me, and sticks to you? So put that in your, back pocket.”
-As Mary Katherine Gallagher in Superstar

Gilda Radner

“I’d much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they’re the first to be rescued off sinking ships.”
