SNL dead poets society

O Captain! Oh, the humanity.

The 41st season of Saturday Night Live went out with quite the bang.

Former cast member Fred Armisen returned to host, reprising his beloved role as Regine, the cringe-worthy girlfriend, and starring in perhaps the best sketch of the night: Farewell Mr. Bunting.

Armisen assumes the role of Dead Poets Society teacher Mr. Keating. Sure, he's got a different name from the Robin Williams character, but he's still got that je ne sais quoi to inspire his students.

In a faithful remake of the film's most climactic scene, SNL ups the ante by taking that whole dead thing quite literally.

Well, that escalated quickly.
