What are your favorite and least favorite Saturday Night Live sketches, characters, and cast members?

I’ve never really tried to rank any of them before, but scrolling through the replies & seeing yours - Debbie Downer has to be it for me, never ever fails to make me laugh incredibly hard. It’s one of those that on paper maybe shouldn’t even be funny, but watching it played out kills me every time. I’d love to be able to figure out exactly what it is that makes it so funny to me. I think that’s one sketch that can be funny to people for different reasons. Obviously if you know someone like that, funny in that way. But I don’t think that’s mainly it for me. My husband doesn’t “get” it and I’ve tried to explain what I think is so funny and I cannot articulate it. Yea, she’s bringing the mood down every time, but that’s not entirely it for me either. And I don’t think bad things happening to people is funny on it’s own. The bad just gets progressively worse and worse, and that is the part that gets me and I don’t know “why” that is so fucking hysterical to me. Maybe something is the matter.
