Harry Anderson: I can't believe this! This is my eighth appearance on Saturday Night Live. In fact, I really got my start on this show, and, tonight, here right on ol' SNL, I'm gonna make my new start. This is too much. I'll explain. You all remember the old Harry Anderson; he's the guy that used to come on this show and he'd run a needle through his arm, or he'd beat on his wife, or he'd drop his pants to show his comedy underwear. Well, I'm here tonight to tell you that Harry Anderson doesn't do that stuff anymore. Nope. That was Harry the Hat, Harry the Con, Harry the Geek. Now... I'm Harry the Judge. And life is different on Thursdays at 9:30, 8:30 Central. It's all different for me now. I got my house in Beverly Hills, I got my condo in Palm Springs, I got my sleek exotic cars, the lawyers who tried to lock me up I got 'em on retainer now, I even got my face on the covers of national magazines. It's all different. It's not like the old days. The old Harry, he'd see someone like... like you! And he'd say something like, "Hey, nice outfit- what, they had a one-cent sale at the mortuary?" But I don't do that any more. No more: "Who picked the tie- Ray Charles?" That was the old Harry... but he's gone.
