Host Kristen Wiig portrayed the Pigeon Lady as SNL in a “never before scene” from the movie, recreating 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.
In the SNL treatment, Wiig’s Pigeon Lady is hungry and needs shelter while Villaseñor’s Kevin is flaunting his father’s credit card that pays for his stay at the Plaza. He pulls out a box of pizza leftovers but instead of giving them to the woman, he feeds the pigeons. He eventually offers Pigeon Lady to get a suite at the Plaza for her. At that moment, the Wet Bandits show up and threaten to take Kevin’s credit card away. Desperate, Wiig’s Pigeon Lady kills them with her bare hands, using an umbrella, while Villaseñor makes Culkin’s famous hands-on-face scream from Home Alone.
She then reminds Kevin of his offer to book her a suite at the Plaza.
“Did you kill these guys?,” Kevin says as they are leaving.
“No Kevin, we killed him,” Pigeon Lady says.

Another Christmas staple, the Grinch, also made an appearance in a not-very-PG skit.
