"Or I swear," he threatened, "I'll go back on my deal to let you marry Scarlett [Johansson]." The Devil then demanded that Jost take his question back.

The Devil noted that he's had many "little side projects" to keep him busy, including "earthquakes," "killer storms" and an "Instagram for kids" he's been "trying to get…off the ground."
On tonight's Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live, Jason Sudeikis returned to Weekend Update to reprise his role as The Devil, catching co-anchor Colin Jost up on the latest in his life.

The Devil told Jost that Florida is where he likes to "beta test" a lot of his new ideas, also noting he's stuck his fork of late into the world of sports. "They shouldn’t have!" "I mean, you saw that the Astros won," he said.
Elsewhere on tonight's edition of Weekend Update, Jost and his co-anchor Michael Che discussed everything from a scandal surrounding the lead singer of the band Smash Mouth, to a recent episode of Gwyneth Paltrow's Netflix series, Sex Love & Goop, to the sale of a Star Wars-themed house in Florida.

I don’t know who screwed her more, you or Disney." Jost denied any deal of the sort took place, with The Devil insisting, "You baby trapped her!
For The Devil, stopping by SNL represented a nice change of pace. After all, back at home, Rush Limbaugh has been "talking [his] horns off."
"I don’t know if you've noticed, but I’ve been making things up here feel more like where I’m from," said The Devil. "I mean, have you ever been to Florida? That’s not that different from Hell…It's people in their hundreds, and the temperatures are also in the hundreds." Then, of course, there's the climate.
"Hey! Don't drag my good name into your sick internet fantasies." A bunch of sad internet psychos thinking a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles exists," he said. Jost subsequently asked The Devil about other aspects of modern society he's responsible for, and he happily took credit for both bitcoin and vaping. No. "It’s like, excuse me. Those guys are crazy. When asked if he's behind QAnon, he promptly dismissed the suggestion.
