Watch Amy Schumer Face the Unforeseen Effects of Time Travel

Moving in with a significant other is a big decision. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could know whether it’s going to work out before you take the plunge? That’s the premise of Amy Schumer’s new sketch, in which Future Amy—actually, a handful of Future Amys—travel back in time to warn Present Amy about the consequences of moving in with her charmer of a boyfriend. (“You’re low maintenance, and it just feels ... OK. Plus my roommate is all over me about rent,” Travis explains romantically.)

Of course as any sci-fi fan knows, time travel can have unforeseen consequences. Should Amy give Travis the “celebration beej” he asks for, or should she break up with him? Most importantly, should she get bangs? The fate of the world depends on her choices.
