Aubrey Plaza as this weekend’s Saturday Evening Stay host returned to her outdated 30 Rock stomping grounds, having labored there as an NBC web page when she was in school.
As such, it was inevitable that her monologue — which opened along with her assuring us that, trademark sarcasm and all, she actually does “care” about (some) issues, and featured a cameo from fellow Delawarean President Biden — would discover her reflecting on that years-ago gig. And it was equally inevitable that she would then slip on her outdated web page’s jacket and provide viewers a backstage tour (requisite headdress-wearing showgirls and all).
Plaza confirmed us why as a web page she by no means bought assigned switchboard responsibility (one thing about her being a “unhealthy web page” with “horrible telephone etiquette”), and Kenan Thompson apparently continues to be ready on a espresso she was fetching him in 2004.
Then, simply as Plaza was rolling her eyes over how tour teams would hope to identify a celeb roaming the halls, who greets her however SNL alum and former Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler.
“Aubrey, I see that you simply’re carrying your web page jacket,” Poehler commented. “Are you consuming once more…?” After which Plaza apparently lifted Poehler’s pockets.
(And if that wasn’t sufficient Pawnee energy for you, Plaza and Poehler later actually performed April and Leslie throughout Weekend Replace!)
