WATCH: Bernie Sanders makes a “yuge” cameo on SNL with doppelganger Larry David

In a live sketch on board a Titanic-esque sinking ship, Sanders barreled in and shouted: “Enough is enough! We need to unite and work together if we’re going to get through this!” 

David also riffed on Sanders’ Jewish religion, with his character suggesting a name change for “Bernie Sanderswinsky” once they get to America.

This season on True Detective…

FADE IN:

INT. INTERROGATION ROOM - DAY
RUST COHLE sits at a interrogation table. He CRACKS a LONE STAR BEER.

RUST COHLE
You see, time is a flat circle, Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over again. Like this speech. I’ve done this before.

DIP TO BLACK.

EXT. LOS ANGELES HIGHWAYS - DAY
Stock helicopter shots of the highways with tonal, moody music.

INT. CAR - DAY
Rust sits in the passenger seat staring out the window. MARTY HART drives.

RUST COHLE
Personally, I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. But if there’s one misstep that takes the cake, it’s this. What happened here, well that’s not alright. It’s all wrong.

MARTY HART
All wrong.

RUST COHLE
All wrong.

DIP TO BLACK.

INT. INTERROGATION ROOM - DAY
Rust is carving up a Lone Star can with a pocket knife.

RUST COHLE
In this universe we process time linearly, forward. You watch season one. You enjoy it. You watch season two. You’re supposed to enjoy it. But we all know no one enjoyed it. I don’t even think Colin Farrell enjoyed it and he got to make out with Rachel McAdams.

Rusty CRACKS open another beer.

RUST COHLE (CONT’D)
Outside of our space time from what would be a fourth dimensional perspective, time wouldn’t exist and from that vantage, we could avoid season two. Our space time would look flattened, like a single sculpture and that sculpture would be season one. And season one is a beautiful sculpture, like that bust of Lionel Richie from the Hello video.

Reveal the INTERROGATION DETECTIVES. They nod in agreement.

INTERROGATION DETECTIVE 1
That is a good sculpture.

INTERROGATION DETECTIVE 2
A modern day Venus de Milo.

CUT TO:

EXT. PARKING LOT - NIGHT
A foot chase. Two sets of feet race across the blacktop.

A GUN SHOT.

Rust dives behind a parked car.

Rust sits on the ground leaning on the side of a car. He holds a gun as he yells across the lot.

RUST COHLE
What’s done is done. Just come out and we can end this thing. You can go back to being funny, romantic comedy Vince Vaughn!

Across the parking lot VINCE VAUGHN leans against another car. He is bloody and clearly wounded.

VINCE VAUGHN
But I don’t want to be funny Vince Vaughn. I want to be Vince Vaughn, dramatic actor!

Rust reloads his gun.

RUST COHLE
It’s just not working Vince.

Vince starts to cry a little.

VINCE VAUGHN
It’s not fair. Why does Marky Mark get to be a dramatic actor AND in those funny Teddy Ruxpin movies? He gets two careers and I don’t? And Woody Harrelson? He gets to be in Cheers AND True Detective Season 1? That’s not fair.

Pan from Rust to reveal Marty sitting next to him behind the car.

MARTY HART
Hey!

Vince wipes the tears from his eyes.

VINCE VAUGHN
He’s the worst part of the Hunger Games if you ask me.

Marty stands and yells across the parking lot.

MARTY HART
Woody Harrelson is a great actor!

RUST COHLE
And handsome!

DIP TO BLACK.

INT. INTERROGATION ROOM - DAY
Rust CRACKS open another beer.

RUST COHLE
Someone once told me a house is only as sound as its foundation. You can put all the fancy shutters on it you want. You can fill it with great pieces, your Colin Farrells, your Rachel McAdamses. But if the foundation is weak, eventually that house is going to collapse. It’s going to fall right in on itself. I guess my point is: There’s no way that little fat red headed kid is Colin Farrell’s son. That’s just terrible casting. Come on.

DIP TO BLACK.

EXT. GRASSY FIELD - DAY
Marty and Rust are hunched behind a large rock in a grassy field.

RUST COHLE
Nothing’s ever fulfilled to the very end. Nothing is ever over. I have seen the finale of thousands of lives. Young. Old. Guatemalan, Asian, Portuguese, Icelandic. This is what I mean when I’m talking about…

A GUN SHOT.
Marty drops to the ground. He’s been shot.

RUST COHLE (CONT’D)
Marty?

DIP TO BLACK.

EXT.  STREET - NIGHT
Rust Cohle and Vince Vaughn have their guns drawn on each other.

RUST COHLE
What’s it gonna be, Vince Vaughn? How’s this going to end?

VINCE VAUGHN
It’s not my fault, Rust. The script was terrible. Nobody cared about the crime. Nobody cared about the victim. Nobody cared about my character. Nobody cared.

RUST COHLE
Oh, but they did care, Vince. They cared so much that they watched the whole damn season. Even after all the terrible acting. The slow pace. Colin Farrell’s mustache! They cared through all of that. And you let them down, Vince.

VINCE VAUGHN
It wasn’t just me. It was an ensemble cast. AN ENSEMBLE CAST!

RUST COHLE
Did you know ensemble actually means “a series of mistakes” in Latin?

VINCE VAUGHN
Is that true?

RUST COHLE
No.

GUN SHOT.
