Back when Aliens was the number one movie in America, Sigourney Weaver took to Saturday Night Live for their 12th season opener, and took part in an Aliens spoof. The skit is... sort of interesting, but the joke on Ripley randomly removing her jumpsuit for no reason is pretty classic.

Also, E.T. had it coming.

One of my all time favorite SNL bits, if only for ET having been “drinking.”

Man, growing up, I er... “paused” on that scene with Weaver in her teeny tiny panties at the end of Alien so many times. Bow chicka wow wow

Also, just how great are the first two Alien movies? I just rewatched them for the first time in about 15 years (on Blu Ray, natch), and I remembered them being good, but they are just fucking amazing. It’s too bad we got that nihilistic sad porn with part 3, and then the campy mess that Whedon wrote with Resurrection.
