Saturday night saw the premiere of Saturday Night Live, thus lifting the curtain on the forty-first season. One sketch in particular stands apart. A sketch centered at Katz’s Deli, the Lower East Side institution that often figures prominently in the open credit roll.

Three of the female lead actresses – Vanessa Bayer, Leslie Jones, and Cecily Strong – are joined by Miley Cyrus to parody the famous (i.e. played out) orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally. The establishing shot is current, but the sketch was not a “produced” piece; it was shot live in Studio 8H with all the proper merch.
