Do you two fall back into old routines when you meet?
HADER: For everyone around us, it sucks. What are they talking about? A butterfly and a bird on a branch?
WIIG: [writer-director] Craig [Johnson] just had to deal with it on set: “O.K., they’re doing it again.”
HADER: At “SNL,” we called it the Friday night crazies, because by Friday night, everyone’s exhausted. Kristen and I and Fred [Armisen] would really go bonkers.
WIIG: You’d just hear over the loudspeakers, “O.K.! Guys! Please!”
HADER: And I’d be fitting Kristen into a refrigerator. Or we’d do a thing where one of us would mouth the words on camera, and we’d do each other’s voices.
WIIG: Everyone would be like, “Year 3 of that joke.”
HADER: "And it’s never been funny."

In a very ridiculous way, I was thinking that I had control over when my baby was going to come… on Friday night he decided he wanted to start coming and he wanted to get there by Saturday, and so I texted Mike Shoemaker and Seth in the middle of the night and said, “I’m not going to make the show tomorrow.” From what I understand, it was really exciting because everyone had these fill-ins for my parts. Elisabeth Moss filled in for herself in a “Mad Men” sketch, and she met Fred Armisen that night, and a year later, on my son’s birthday, they were married. That was also the night where Seth had to do “Update” for the first time, and I held my newborn son in my arms as I watched Maya and Kenan sing a song to me and him. Seth tapped on the “Update” desk, which he does now pretty regularly out of a lovely habit, and I felt it was really one of those really incredibly moving moments where all these moments in my life were happening at the same time and I felt my heart crack open.
It was just love with a capital L all over there. Getting it, receiving it, feeling it, seeing this little person, my first son, and seeing the people I loved so much at my job. It felt very real to me and it is very real to me. I treasure the love and relationships that I have there and continue to have because of that job.
