Monologue by Jim Carrey   Carrey dresses as "Helvis" for Halloween (Elvis Presley in a red jumpsuit with horns on his head), and performs an Elvis-esque song about pecan pie.
Matthew McConaughey for Lincoln I   Matthew McConaughey (Jim Carrey) does a commercial for Lincoln.
Carrey Family Reunion   Multiple members of the cast appear as Jim Carrey's relatives at a family reunion, doing impressions of him. Includes Taran Killam, Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Vanessa Bayer (talking from her rear a la Ace Ventura: Pet Detective), Cecily Strong (as Fire Marshall Bill), Bobby Moynihan (as Carrey's character from The Mask), and Jay Pharoah (as the Cable Guy). Also features Leslie Jones in her first credited role on SNL, and a cameo by Jeff Daniels (in character as Harry from Dumb and Dumber).
Matthew McConaughey for Lincoln II   A reprisal of the earlier sketch; there are now children in the car.
Haunted graveyard   A couple (Sasheer Zamata and Pete Davidson) go to a graveyard for fun, only to find it haunted. Four ghosts (Jay Pharoah, Kenan Thompson, Bobby Moynihan, and Kate McKinnon) start a scary musical number, only to have it ruined by friendly ghosts Paul and Phil (Taran Killam and Jim Carrey). Mid-sketch, in an incorrect camera shot, Carrey and Killam can be seen crawling on the floor to their new positions flanking Thompson.
Matthew McConaughey for Lincoln III   Dennis Haysbert (Kenan Thompson) appears in an ad for AllState insurance, only to be run over by Matthew McConaughey (Jim Carrey) in another reprisal of the earlier sketches.

Ghosts: Fact or Fiction   A parody of the early-2000s specials based upon the television series Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction. The host (Taran Killam) leads a group (Vanessa Bayer and others) in a haunted house, but the skeptic (Leslie Jones) turns out to be a believer and runs from the house screaming.
The Walking Dead   A father (Jim Carrey) tries to join a group of people hiding from the zombie apocalypse (Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong, Kyle Mooney, and Beck Bennett) with his infected son (Pete Davidson).

Two other employees (Kate McKinnon and Jim Carrey) end up in the same costume, Sia from the music video for her song "Chandelier". They hold a dance-off to decide the winner, going off the set, through the audience (and pausing at Lorne Michaels), across the set from the earlier "Haunted graveyard" sketch, over the musical set (where Iggy Azelea joins them in-costume) before coming back to the sketch.
