If you thought Melissa McCarthy was hilarious in Bridesmaids (or Mike and Molly), wait until you get a load of this.

The Emmy winner brought her comedic talents to Saturday Night Live, and killed the show, kicking off the night with a souped up monologue where she showed us what she was working with (in six-inch heels!). 

"Viv and Georgie go to bed now, because mama's about to get pretty inappropriate," McCarthy said before breaking out into a song and dance number with Kristen Wiig.

And that was just the beginning of the Emmy winner's comedic antics.

McCarthy threw on a blonde wig and a boa and transformed into Lulu Diamonds, an old Hollywood actress who had a serious issue with clumsiness (and slipping down staircases)…a particular issue considering her catch phrase was "Why don't you come upstairs and see me up there sometimes." 

The Mike and Molly star also guzzled salad dressing and poured it on herself for a Hidden Valley Ranch taste testing in which the person with the best comment won $50. So, McCarthy put her thinking cap on, blurting out phrases like "there's a Hidden Valley Ranch party in mouth" and "can you garlic ranch blast me now?" to take home the cash. 

But, wait there's more.

In her "Arlene" skit, McCarthy played an inappropriate office worker whose attempts to seduce Jason Sudeikis' character fall flat.

"I made a pretty intensely hot pot of coffee...making my body just hot and sweaty. You like it hot?"

And after rubbing his tie on her chest, she gave us this little gem.

"Are you my Italian stallion?" she asked, while she blew on a horse balloon.

And then there was her portrayal of a girl in a bar being picked up by Andy Samberg, in which she confessed, "My lifelong nickname is Skid Marks, but I've never owned a car."

McCarthy mentioned at the top of the show that it has been a dream of hers to be on SNL.

We think it's been a long time coming.
