Broad City’s lead duo of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer recently did a stint at the local nunnery—that is, the one run by “sisters” Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. On Tuesday, Comedy Central released “Sisters Helping Sisters,” a promotional video for Poehler and Fey’s new movie Sisters (out in select theaters on Thursday), which includes all four legendary comediennes.

In the video, delinquent sisters Abbi and Ilana report to New York’s Supreme Court to be charged for a slew of crimes. Then, Poehler and Fey—in full nun garb—come to their salvation, armed with “rosary beads.” With a bit of “tsk tsk-ing,” Poehler and Fey manage to get Abbi and Ilana back on the derech.
