This weekend, Saturday Night Live doyen returned to the show that launched his career. He was decked out in a wig and a not very factual expression of Steve Bannon.

The cold open sketch, an edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, featured Fred Armisen as Michael Wolf, author of the book Fire and Fury, Alex Moffat as Joe Scarborough and Kate McKinnon as his co-host and Fiancée Mika Brzezinski.

The biggest laughs, however, went to Billy Murray playing a political kingmaker. While portraying Steve Bannon, Murray said as a kingmaker, he convinced Americans to elect Donald Trump and he can do it again...oops. He further mentioned that he has started interviewing candidates.

7 quotes by Billy Murray

The 67-year-old comedian has spent the larger part of his career making people laugh. And right here for your viewing pleasure are 7 quotes by Billy Murray to brighten your day:

2. “The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.”

3.”People say I’m difficult and sometimes that’s a badge of honor.”

4. “I do absolutely nothing. I go home and stay there. I wash and scrub up each day, and that’s it. One month I actually grew a moustache, just so I could say that I’d done something.”

5. “My favorite thing about New York is the people because I think they’re misunderstood. I don’t think people realize how kind New York people are. The drivers are far more considerate, they’re just very aggressive.”

6. ”If you go to actors' class, you don't really die, because there's never really an audience. But if you work for Second City, there's an audience, and you die in the improv set five times out of nine. So, once you get over your fear of dying, nothing else ever really scares you. And Saturday Night Live was as tough as Second City. Once you get through those, making movies is a joke.

7. “There's only a couple times when fame is ever helpful. Sometimes you can get into a restaurant where the kitchen is just closing. Sometimes you can avoid a traffic violation. But the only time it really matters is in the emergency room with your kids. That's when you want to be noticed, because it's very easy to get forgotten in an ER. It's the only time when I would ever say, ‘Thank God. Thank God.’ There's no other time.”

As if Murray portraying Bannon and Alex playing Wolf wasn't enough, Leslie Jones made an appearance as Oprah Winfrey to discuss her presidential campaign!

Watch out Oprah, you're obviously next.
