The actress raged, "That's a terrible thing to write... I should slap her. I should slap her in her b**ch mouth... I'm taller than most women, I could really mess her up. I'm Sigourney frigging Weaver."

She concluded the show by paying tribute to "my dad" Sylvester "Pat" Weaver the former president of NBC - the network on which "SNL" airs. The actress started the show by displaying a shot of her as a child with her parents backstage at the studios where the comedy program is shot.
