  • Quotes (1)

    • Steve Martin: Hey, we're having some fun now, eh kids? [ sips water, spits ] Excuse me! Sorry, I didn't mean to.. get some on you there. We're having some fun - hey! [ picks up camera, snaps his own picture ] Excuse me! Alright! Hey, you get to see a show; all I have are.. memories. I paid $900 for this - is that too much? I don't know. Okay. We're moving! I tell you what - let's rip the place apart! Sorry, folks. Okay, we'll be starting in a few moments - just waiting... for the drugs... to take effect... and then... Ah! Okay, here we go!

    Notes (2)

    • This episode makes Steve Martin the third person to host SNL twice in one season (the previous two being Candace Bergen and Buck Henry in Season 1; the latter would also do so later in this season). Martin would accomplish this again in the following season, while Henry would continue do so through the end of the 5th season.

    • "Buster Holmes' Resturant" and "Roots II" were cut from the Mardi Gras broadcast; they were projected to be the last two segments, but were dumped at the last minute due to time constraints.

    Trivia (1)

    • The host of "Hollywood Bingo" (played by Steve Martin) says the object of the game is to get six squares in a row, but Bingo only requires five in a row.
