SNL SKit The California with Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader


Maybe you have to live in California to really appreciate it, but we found this SNL skit to be absolutely hilarious. In the soap opera, The Californians, drama, passion and intrigue are always accompanied by detailed driving directions. Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen are the ultimate southern Californians. They talk in some kind of deranged Valley speak and they are really, really blonde. And they know what's important in life: white wine, California avocados and validated parking.

Wiig's best line: "Stewart, at this time of day? It's going to be jammed. Are you crazy??" No, she's not worried that her husband found her kissing their neighbor, Devon, it's that he dared to tell Devon to take the 405 north to Mulholland. Josh Brolin is the doctor who stopped by to deliver some shocking test results, and Kenan Thompson shows up after having escaped from Chino. Yes, we got his route home. Take a look:
