Saturday Night Live returns this week with a first-time host: Brie Larson.

With an Oscar win for Room under her belt, the actress is set to take the stage in Studio 8H in the same week Donald Trump has emerged as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. But before SNL tackles the latest political developments, the show is teasing its new episode with an adorable set of promos featuring Larson and cast staple Kenan Thompson.

Casually awaiting their food on a sushi date, Larson and Thompson touch on her looks, his Nickelodeon past (hey, you didn’t forget All That, right?), this week’s musical guest Alicia Keys, and more.

“Brie, do you like cheese?” asks Thompson at one point. “You’ve asked me that 15 times already,” she tells him. “Yeah, but do you like cheese?” he shoots back. “Oh my god, yes I do—I like cheese,” Brie answers. “Well then, we should go somewhere else because sushi don’t have no cheese in it,” Thompson quips.
