Season 40 of Saturday Night Live gave us “Back Home Ballers,” Adam Levine as Freddie Mercury, and Mike O’Brien and Jason Sudeikis’ “The Jay Z Story.” But one of the sketch show’s most memorable skits from its latest installment was “Hobbit Office,” a mash-up in which host Martin Freeman merged his Hobbit and Office roles.
In the extra footage from the December sketch, a redheaded elf played by Kate McKinnon flirts with Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins à la Jim and Pam, while she shows him how to dial the office phone before her boyfriend walks in on the interaction. Meanwhile, a Gollum-like Taran Killam consumes a raw fish at his desk, and a bearded Bobby Moynihan interrupts his employees to joke about his staff and play with a stuffed dragon.
Check out the full clip above to see what else happened when The Hobbit met the The Office, and watch the original sketch below.
Saturday Night Live returns Oct. 3 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
