SNL filter: Please list for me the Saturday Night Live skits where guests unexpectedly show up.

I'm looking for the sketches where a famous person suddenly shows up in a skit (unknown to either the audience and/or the actors), and then may or may not participate in the rest of the evening's show. (Sometimes it's a former cast member.)
Looking in particular for the sketches where the audience goes apeshit in delight over seeing said celebrity, and/or the regular cast didn't know that the celebrity was going to be there; i.e., where the surprise element is the greatest.
I'm sure there are many of these. The ones I have are:
Barbra Streisand in "Coffee Talk"
Paul Simon, Elliot Gould, et. al in the first "Five Timer's Club" sketch
Steve Martin, etc. in "Platinum Club"
Cast of Cheers in Kirstie Allie's monologue
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin
Dan Ackroyd as Bob Dole (I think he did this a few times)
Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro
Art Garfunkel once showed up and found that Paul Simon didn't recognize him
Didn't Obama show up once?
Please tell me the others. Thank you!
