‘SNL’: Kristen Wiig Is Pigeon Lady In ‘Home Alone 2’ Parody
On Saturday Night Live's Christmas show, the sketch comedy forged a Christmas movie, the 1992 Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.
Presenter Kristen Wiig portrayed the Pigeon Lady as SNL in a "never-before-seen scene" from the film and recreated a meeting with Kevin, played by SNL's Melissa Villaseñor in Central Park.
In Home Alone 2, Pigeon Lady (played by Brenda Fricker) befriends Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) and helps him defeat the Wet Bandits.
During the SNL treatment, Wiig's Pigeon Lady is hungry and in need of protection, while Villaseñor's Kevin flaunts his father's credit card that pays for his stay in the plaza. He takes out a box of leftover pizza, but instead of giving it to the woman, he feeds the pigeons. He finally offers Pigeon Lady to get her a suite on the plaza. At that moment the Wet Bandits appear and threaten to take away Kevin's credit card. Desperate, Wiig's Pigeon Lady kills her with bare hands and an umbrella, while Villaseñor Culkin's famous hands-on-face scream from Home Alone.
She then reminds Kevin of his offer to book her a suite in the Plaza.
"Did you kill these guys?" Says Kevin as they leave.
"No Kevin, we killed him," says Pigeon Lady.

Another Christmas staple, the Grinch, also appeared in a not-very-PG sketch.
