    “I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it,” he said.

    “But I’m, like, cold-open political punchlines. I’m 'Weekend Update' jokes. When I’m not there, they’ll be like, ‘Pete’s a fucking jerkface.’ It’s like, whose side are you on?"

    "I have a weird feeling in that building, where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for — if I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke. I really wanted last year to be my last year, but I’m still around.”

    “If I’m just fodder now, though; maybe I just shouldn’t be there,” he said. “They think I’m fucking dumb — like, I’m literally painted out to be this big, dumb idiot.”

    "I just feel like I’ve done as much as I can over there."

    "It's a cutthroat fucking show. Everyone wants to be the next thing. You're not gonna get coddled over there. They don't give a fuck at the end of the day."
