On "SNL," Maya Rudolph hosted "Kamala Harris' unity seder" for Passover.
Martin Short was a surprise guest playing second gentleman Doug Emhoff.
Ella Emhoff, played by Chloe Fineman, and Ted Cruz, played by Aidy Bryant, also attended the seder.
Maya Rudolph hosted the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live" and reprised her role as Vice President Kamala Harris.
In honor of the first night of the Jewish holiday Passover, Rudolph portrayed Harris at a seder - a ceremonial meal for the holiday - with her husband, Doug Emhoff, played by Martin Short.
Earlier in the week, Emhoff, who's the first Jewish spouse of a president or vice president, led the White House's first virtual Passover celebration along with Harris and President Joe Biden and Jill Biden.
But in true "SNL" fashion, the event had a comedic twist: as Rudolph said, the celebration was known as "Kamala Harris' unity seder."
"Tonight we ask the four questions: How's school? Did you eat? When are you giving me grandchildren? And what's with that haircut?" Rudolph said, introducing a play on the "four questions" that are asked in a traditional Passover celebration.
Rudolph, playing the vice president, then introduced her husband, calling him her "step-baby daddy."
"I'm just a shy entertainment lawyer," Short, as the second gentleman, said.
Short and Rudolph went on to share an intimate dance, with the fictional second gentleman chanting about his love and support for his wife.
As the skit continued, the vice president welcomed guests to the "unity seder." Her first guest was Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, played by Aidy Bryant. Bryant previously portrayed the lawmaker and his Cancun vacation blunder on another "SNL" episode.
Bryant, as Cruz, carried a tray of cupcakes decorated with Israeli flags alongside miniature hot dogs.
"I've never been to a Jewish dinner, so I brought some Israeli flag cupcakes," Bryant said. "And I got some pigs in a blanket."
Then, Chloe Fineman, playing the second gentleman's daughter Ella Emhoff - who modeled in New York Fashion Week and has signed with IMG Models - strutted into the room.
Finally, Biden, played by Alex Moffat; Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia, played by Kenan Thompson; and Cecily Strong as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green of Georgia joined the comedic seder.
