Rachel Dratch as Debbie Downer

As the song says: "You’re enjoying your day, everything’s going your way, then along comes Debbie Downer!" There’s nothing so happy that Rachel Dratch's Debbie Downer can’t put a negative spin on it -- not sunny weather, birthday parties, Santa Claus, or even Disney World. If you know any real-life Debbie Downers, then you know how hard it is to resist making that "wah-wah" trombone noise whenever they speak!

Memorable quote: "No cake for me. With all the refined sugars we’re eating, America is experiencing a virtual epidemic of juvenile diabetes." WAH-WAH!
