Ben Affleck is still reveling in his Oscar glory – and dwelling on the speech in which he thanked wife Jennifer Garner and acknowledged that their marriage is "work."
On Saturday, he tried to make light of the moment while hosting Saturday Night Live – and even brought Garner on stage during his monologue to help. (Watch the monologue below.)
"I thanked my wife while saying the essence of marriage is work," he said during the monologue, noting that giving an Oscar speech is "completely terrifying."

It's officially duty-swap time in the Affleck-Garner household. As mom Jennifer Garner gets back into filmmaking this summer with a full plate of work, her Oscar-winning husband will hold down the fort at home as Mr. Mom.
After conquering Hollywood last year with his Academy Award-winning movie, Argo, the multi-talented Affleck, 40, is taking a step back from his own work to focus a bit more on the family life.
"Jennifer is going to work," a chuckling Affleck, 40, told PEOPLE Monday night. "And she told me to go to the gym."

What is Ben Affleck's follow-up act after his big Oscar win for Best Picture? A lot less Hollywood than some might think.
"Just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch," Affleck, 40, said at Sunday's Chrysler-sponored 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit for child sexual assault victims, at the John Varvatos Boutique in West Hollywood.
"It's been a nice time hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing. We're enjoying it."

Mom and son bonding time!
Jennifer Garner and son Samuel, who turned 1 last week, enjoyed a lunch date together in Los Angeles on Tuesday – dining at the rustic, wine country-inspired Napa Valley Grille in Westwood Village.
Garner, 40, was dressed casually in navy blue trousers, a white crew neck sweater and snakeskin flats. Samuel was matching adorably in a navy and gray striped outfit.
Ten days removed from husband Ben Affleck's big night at the Oscars, Garner enjoyed chef Taylor Boudreaux's chicken kale salad and sipped on an iced tea. Samuel had the grilled chicken and steamed veggies off the kid's menu.
Garner was in good spirits, smiling to everyone, and was joined by a girlfriend.

And what did Ben Affleck do after his Argo won Best Picture on Sunday night? He took it all off – his facial hair, that is.
A friend of the actor-filmmaker's confirms to PEOPLE that following the Oscars ceremony Affleck, 40, shaved his beard at Craig's restaurant in Hollywood, – where wife Jennifer Garner and pal and Argo co-producer George Clooney were celebrating with him.
"The whole family was tired of [his] beard," says the friend.
Sure enough: "Jen brought clippers!" he added.
According to TMZ.com, the shave took place in the middle of the restaurant's hallway.
