Plot: American Airlines Pilot Steve Rogers made an appearance on Weekend Update to apologize for kicking Alec Baldwin off his flight Wednesday. But in true SNL absurdist fashion, Captain Rogers was played by none other than SNL stalwart Alec Baldwin himself. He managed to fool no one, but Seth Meyers seemed reluctant to let Baldwin continue with his covert apology. Speaking as though it were a horrific occurrence, Rogers affords an air of gravitas to the situation, while expectedly continuing his trend of shaming American for their actions. The mustachioed captain, in a Southern drawl, explains that Words With Friends is a game for smart people and pokes fun at the “no cell phones on airplanes” rule.
Best Line: “Mr. Baldwin is an American treasure.”
