In the midst of an ugly primary, SNL gave us on the May 21st finale a beautiful vision we are unlikely to see IRL: Hillary and Bernie setting aside their differences to share a drink and a dance. Bernie was sitting far behind Hillary, "so far behind [he] could not catch up," before joining her at the bar to reminisce about the race he insists still isn't over. Picking up the tab (or more accurately, Goldman Sachs probably did), Hillz ordered a "beer no one likes but gets the job done," with Bernie opting for the revolutionary, popular new brew.

After running out of jabs, the two waltz around Studio 8H, with surprisingly impressive skill. Larry David's pirouette is pretty, pretty, pretty good. Also, since Saturday Night Live will be in reruns until the fall (when it's pretty, pretty likely that Bernie will be at home in Vermont), this was a goodbye of sorts for Larry David's highly successful year-long cameo and the best character he's ever played not named Larry David.

It was also Hillary's best trip to the bar since she met Val.
