'Saturday Night Live' Moms And A Son Pay Sweet Homage To Mothers

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Emma Thompson translate mother lingo, and Pete Davidson introduces his mom on "Weekend Update."

Saturday Night Live” pulled out the stops to honor moms ― former cast members Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to the comedy show to translate “mom talk” with Emma Thompson during her monologue — and a classic “SNL” video stripped down the reality of motherhood. 

When moms say they want to just “relax in the backyard” for Mother’s Day, Poehler said what they’re really communicating is: “How does one buy weed?”

Or when they say: “Let’s not talk about politics,” they mean: “Please don’t ruin Joe Biden for me.”

When they say: “Son, you know I love you just the way you are,” they mean: “I’m bored of waiting for you to tell me you’re gay. Just do it so I can buy rainbow stuff!”

The routine ended with messages of love from the three mothers to their children.

The “SNL” video (below) touched on a similar theme of words contrasted with reality as a mother and daughter talk of beatific moments with kids that were actually a tad messier.

Also during the show, Pete Davidson noted that he was now living with his mom — and sister — in a new house they purchased. Then he brought out his mom, Amy Davidson, who was wearing a pink sweatshirt featuring images of her and her son. Asked by Colin Jost what they were going to do for Mother’s Day, Davidson said: “What do you mean? I put her on TV. This is it.”
