Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin warmly noted the absence of their 30 Rock co-star Tracy Morgan from Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary special during a segment on the show.

“I wish my friend Tracy Morgan was here tonight, and I know that he was hoping that he was well enough to be here too,” Fey said. Baldwin added, “Tracy would have been the first to accurately express how thrilled we all are to be a part of television history.” He then busted out his own impression of Morgan.

“And if he were here tonight, I’m sure Tracy would remind us that more than anything, he would like to get us all pregnant,” Fey said.

Before launching into a clip of Morgan doing his character Brian Fellow, Baldwin said, “See you at the 41st, Tracy.” Fey added, “We love you.”

Morgan was involved in a car crash in June; he’s still recovering from a traumatic brain injury.
