Personal Quotes 

[re leaving 'SNL'] It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point. It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go' ...I'd heard stories that you get very emotional in those conversations, and I've had other people tell me, 'Oh, I cried.' I didn't, but I did think I was about to faint.
[re 'SNL' continuing without him] There's a new sensibility happening, and if it isn't totally apparent on the show yet, I see it on Wednesdays at the table reads. I found myself looking up and watching the new people do their sketches. I like watching Kate McKinnon do something - there's a joy in seeing a new move from somebody and going, 'Oh, she can do that.'
Yeah, improvising only really works 100% when you're with somebody.
A lot of times I think people, when they're doing a movie that's a family movie, they're worried about this being too esoteric or too dark or too weird.
