Here's what you missed...

And thanks to their high public role, the lawsuit is being taped and viewed by hundreds of fans, waiting for the juror's decision.

The skit started off with comedian Kyle Mooney on the stand in the courtroom, pretending to be the Pirates of The Caribbean actor. He was being questioned by his "lawyer," Aidy Bryant, who asked him about the incident where his ex-wife supposedly used the bathroom where he usually falls asleep. "I felt very, very sad," Mooney said. The amusing scene went on with Bryant admitting that she had surveillance footage of the event in question. Before playing the clip, she explained, "I'll allow it because it does sound fun, and this trial is for fun." Everyone in the skit's courtroom watched the video as Depp's "property manager," Kenan Thompson, discovered the fecal matter, which he said looked "just like the emoji." LOL. "It smells like boo-boo in here," the 44-year-old comedian teased. "It's coming from this bed! Oh, h*ll no, that's a boo-boo!"

That's when the judge, portrayed by Cecily Strong, spoke up, "I think I've seen enough. This trial has given me a lot to consider," she started. "On one hand, I believe Mr. Depp's story, but on the other hand, your constant little smirk lets me know this is not the first woman you've made so mad that she pooped in your bed. … Either way, I'm just so glad this ain't me!" Check out the rest of the hilarious content from last Saturday night on Hulu. And as for the real-life trial, it will resume Monday, May 16, after a 10-day recess...
