There was a skit where Hartman was doing Charlton Heston reading the Madonna "Sex" book, for books on tape, and it had Danny Devito acting as, I think, Bob Guccione, and he was giving an oral description of the pictures.

It was one of the best skits I've ever seen.  One of the best lines was Hartman (reading as Heston) and he says, "Sometimes, I like to look at my vagina...."  "Hey, do we have to say that word?  Couldn't we use something else?  What was it old Ernie Borgnine used to call it....a fur burger?"

That skit had me rolling...I wish I could find it on the net.

/RIP Phil Hartman

It's too location specific.  But if you've eaten in Greek delis in NYC, then yes, it is funny.

The Walken census skit is up there...maybe not all time favorite; but definitely top 10.

The Baron: Christine Baranski's monologue

to 'splain - I generally find her super annoying and harpy, but maybe she just plays that character too well (and too often).  Anyhow, she was hosting SNL  I only remember the monologue.  She was doing a straight monologue about her Polish heritage.  As she spoke, they panned around the studio to show all these Pollock jokes being executed.  Like, a guy on a ladder holding a light bulb and five guys below holding up the ladder and walking in circles.  It was terribly funny, especially since everyone played it straight.

This was the height of pollack jokes, in the 80s.  For some reason, we changed the punchline to blonde, but the content was the same.  I would love to find that clip.  going to poke around youtube and google videos to see if I can find it.

Like much of the humor they pushed, I can't imagine you could do that skit today.  Plus, no one would get it.  I haven't heard a 'pollock' joke for 20 years.

I have seen every show ever.  Never miss it.  I am also absolutely not one of those people who complains 'it was funnier 20 years ago'.  Every cast brings something big to the table.   Well, most.  There were some horrible cast members over the years, but that is a separate discussion.

lastly, Justin Timberlake kills every time.  That kid is just stupid talented


It was in <b>1996</b>.

I can't believe no one's mentioned the SNL skit where Cheri Oteri talks about John Goodman's dirty man-meat dangling betwixt his legs.

Special mention for "Don't Look Back In Anger," which still gets me choked up.

Which one is that?

It's from the 1977 season.  It's a black and white film in which Belushi plays himself, years in the future, as an old man, visiting the graves of, and reminiscing about all of the early cast members because he is the last original member who is still alive.

It's really the saddest thing that SNL has ever aired, although of course we didn't know that at the time.




Found it.

Yeah, the room I'm in always gets a bit dusty when I watch it.

Ugh! Haven't watched in years but the one I *still* quote:

Danny DeVito and Mike Meyers in a tub. Myers was playing some English child. They were talking about Christmas and I remember DeVito's line "My daddy says sometimes even Santa gotta get whacked"
