When Adam Sandler was fired from Saturday Night Live in 1995 he handled it like a gentleman with grace and dignity. He didn't freak out or get angry, he just went off and moved on to bigger and better things, but still would stop by other NBC shows when asked.
"You were so nice about it," Conan O'Brien told him during Thursday's episode of Conan. "You would come on and do my show in the early early days when hardly anybody else would do the show, but it was maybe strange with you and NBC at the time."
Cue Sandler's explanation of why he continued to appear on Conan's former show, Late Night, despite having been fired! Although he loved working with the redheaded host, he did admit to being somewhat confused when the network continued to ask him to appear on it for Sweeps Week.
"I thought they don't like me. They fired me," Sandler said to his manager way back when.
