    • [On his first year at Saturday Night Live]
      Tim Meadows: My first year, it was all heavy hitters. It was like being put on the Olympic Dream Team. I was like, 'I'll play guard.' 'Uh, no. We have Michael Jordan to play guard.' 'I'll play the other guard, then?' 'No, we have Larry Bird to do that. We just want you to bring the ball up the court and get it out of your hands as quickly as possible.' It was hard at first. But at a certain point, the performer in you comes out.

      Tim Meadows: I can honestly say there's not a day that goes by where somebody doesn't come up and tell me how much they love the Ladies Man. It happens every day.
