In the teaser, Thompson -- who's been on the show for a record-smashing 18 seasons -- asks Mulligan, "Carey, your movies are pretty serious. Are you ready to loosen up with us?"
"Kenan, I'm ever so glad you asked," thePromising Young Woman star says, as dramatic music swells and the color of the promo transitions into a more dramatic muted shade of blue.
"We've all been through so much this year," Mulligan says, as if delivering an epic Shakespearean monologue. "But I must tell you, as God as my witness, I am ready to -- no! I'm kidding, I'm not like that."
Laughing, Kenan celebrates the fact that she doesn't take herself too seriously. Cudi, on the other hand, has to wipe a tear from his eye.
"That was riveting though," the artist says in a shaky voice.
In another short bit in the promo, after Mulligan makes the introductions, Thompson makes a joke about Kid Cudi's name, joking, "And I'm Adult Kenan."
"And this is Little Baby Angel Carey," he adds, as Mulligan lights up with glee.
"OK! Everyone has to call me that from now on," she declares.
"You got it, Little Baby Angel Carey," Cudi chimes in as she claps with joy.
