Some of Saturday Night Live‘s newest great impressions got to interact with some of its most classic ones when the show brought back its Celebrity Jeopardy sketch for the 40th anniversary special. 

Kate McKinnon’s Justin Bieber joined Darrell Hammond’s Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin’s Tony Bennett to play, while Will Ferrell’s Alex Trebek remained as wonderfully bewildered as ever. The categories included “Potent Potables,” “Famous Oprahs,” and “Who Reads,” which Connery turned into “Whore Ads.” “Let It Snow” also got the Connery treatment. (Guess how.)

But where was Norm Macdonald’s Burt Reynolds, or rather Turd Ferguson? Oh, he showed up—as did Taran Killam’s Christoph Waltz, Jim Carrey’s Matthew McConaughey, and Kenan Thompson’s Bill Cosby. Yes, Bill Cosby.
