It’s no secret that we love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Their comedic genius (both as individuals and together) is mighty, and their relationship gives us all the best friendship goals. On Friday, their new movie Sisters opens and we’re straight-up psyched. To celebrate the film, and the fact that Tina and Amy are hosting SNL together this weekend, here are a few Tina + Amy gems that never fail to make us howl with laughter.

Thanks for keeping us laughing, ladies.

Mom Jeans

It’s a classic SNL sketch and it never fails to fill our eyes with hilarity-infused tears. The sketch also stars goddesses Maya Rudolph and Rachel Dratch, plus this commercial parody will have you singing the “mom jeans, mom jeeeeans” jingle under your breath for days.

That George Clooney joke

George Clooney is great, sure. But his wife, Amal, has an illustrious career as a human rights lawyer, and at the 2015 Golden Globes, our favorite duo couldn’t help but point out the irony that her actor/ director husband was the one receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Baby Mama “Spray a Little Pam”

In this scene from the pair’s 2008 comedy about an odd couple pair of women, one of whom is acting as a surrogate for the other, Poehler’s character Angie makes a hilarious — but valid — suggestion regarding some pre-baby prep. This will haunt us during our own pregnancies.

The Palin/ Clinton SNL cold open

This 5-minute sketch from SNL features Tina as Sarah Palin (duh) and Amy as Hillary Clinton (double duh). Needless to say, it’s a classic. 

 That other George Clooney joke.

In 2014, our fave ladies also poked fun at Clooney (probably because he’s such a good sport).

“Bitch is the New Black”

Last but certainly not least, this segment from Tina and Amy’s tenure as the only female duo to host Weekend Update on SNL is one of our favorite pieces of comedy, ever. In it, they rebrand the word “bitch,” saying, “bitches get stuff done.”

Of course, there are many more Tina + Amy gems (and we’re sure Sisters will add some new favorites to the list); these are just some of our personal faves to whet the palette.
