Working at a Pension Fund Goes Straight into the Toilet at SNL

During the November 6, 2021 episode of Saturday Night Live, we are treated (if that's the right word) to a bunch of guys, and their innermost thoughts, in the bathroom. We learn, during that skit, that it must be really boring - or something like that - to work at a pension fund: 

Chris Redd (aloud, about to finish up and leave) - Alright, whiteman, see you on the ice! 

Kieren Culkin (aloud) - Oh yeah, yoo too. 

Redd (to himself) - See you on the ice?!? We work at a pension fund. Is that even an expression? I don't know who I AM in here? 

Is it that those working at a pension fund wouldn't use a cool little exiting catchphrase?* Is it that there're no frozen bodies of water in pension offices? I dunno. What I DO know, however, is that pension funds, at least in their capacity as employers, have now made their way into SNL bathrooms.

* Cf. Mena Suvari's Angela Hayes, American Beauty, "I don't think that there's anything worse than being ordinary."
