In the hilarious sketch, Barb reams out Eleven, Dustin, Mike, and Lucas (played by the actual Stranger Things actors, with the exception of Barb and Jimmy Fallon's Steve) for not bothering to save her from the Upside Down and the Demogorgon. Every part of this is amazing (and well-deserved), but the best lines are probably the description of Barb as having "bright red Ronald MacDonald hair, old granny glasses, and a librarian's blouse," and the announcement that she won't return for season two because she's getting her own spin-off, "Orange Is the New Bitch."
