Tina Fey reprised her role as Sarah Palin on ''Saturday Night Live,'' again appearing as the Republican vice presidential candidate in an opening sketch.

Saturday night's show -- the third of the season for the NBC comedy program -- brought back the season premiere tandem of Fey and Amy Poehler, who opened the season with a memorable sketch featuring Fey as Palin and Poehler as Hillary Clinton.

This time around, Poehler played CBS's Katie Couric, parodying the interview with Palin earlier this week. Poehler, though, mostly played straight man to Fey, who ratcheted up her performance of Sen. John McCain's running mate by satirizing her foreign affairs experience.

When Poehler's Couric pushed Fey's Palin to specifically discuss how she would help facilitate democracy abroad, Fey gave in: ''Katie, I'd like to use one of my lifelines. ... I want to phone a friend.''

When a confused Poehler informed her that that wasn't how the interview worked, Fey's Palin responded -- alluding to one of the governor's most quoted lines from the interview -- ''Well, in that case, I'm just gonna have to get back to ya.''
