Before Saturday Night Live showcased highlights from its 40-year history on Sunday, stars past and present gathered on the red carpet to honor the sketch show's historic run.
As they recalled their favorites, though, a few folks noted some missed opportunities. Below, find out who wishes they'd had the chance to keep a straight face around Stefon and which two gentlemen wish they could have demanded "More Cowbell!"
AJ McLean: "I would love to do anything with Stefon even though I would probably break character immediately because Bill Hader is amazing and that character is amazing, but if I could be, like, Stefon's little brother and we could do a whole skit without breaking character that'd be pretty awesome, that would be the one."

Fred Armisen has a very simple, very personal reason for why he wanted to be on Saturday Night Live: his mom!
Armisen told reporters on the red carpet of Sunday night's 40th anniversary special that he first discovered SNL when he was a child: "My mom used to watch it and she used to say, 'I love Chevy Chase.' She's from Venezuela. This is all about impressing my mom."

During his Saturday Night Live monologue last night, Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons sought to prove that he is nothing like his aggressive, domineering band leader character in Whiplash.
To prove his conviviality, Simmons prepared a song with the SNL cast – and then proceeded to yell in everyone's faces for being off-tempo.
"This isn't one of your weird videos!" he yelled at Kyle Mooney on the drums. "This is the opening of the show!"

"These hazelnuts … they are local?"
You already may be able to quote the best lines ("Put a bird on it!") from Portlandia, the hilarious sketch comedy show that pokes fun at the gluten-free, locally sourced world of Portland and its residents – and if you're a fan, you won't want to miss the premiere of the new season Thursday night. (Spoiler: They'll show you how Candace and Toni, from the Women and Women First bookstore, first met many years ago.)
The show's creators, writers and stars, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, stopped by PEOPLE to tell us how they come up with their absurdist characters, and plenty of other juicy behind-the-scenes info.

Saturday Night Live generally keeps its departed cast members close, unless you've done something to really offend the show. So having Golden Globe winner and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg on to host the last episode of the show's season wasn't a stretch, though the parade of alumni the show brought out at different points felt appropriately momentous for a season-closer.

The pouring rain didn't stop Fred Armisen from his food cravings on Saturday afternoon at the Independent Spirit Awards.
The band leader of Seth Meyers's inaugural season of Late Night popped into the Breyers Gelato Indulgences lounge connected to the awards location, and walked away with treats from the ice cream company.
But it wasn't a full sweets fest for the star, who also sampled some goodies from Sabra snacks.
