    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • On the reruns "The Hanukkah Song 3," Rob Schnieder puts on a blonde wig and sings with the Drie-Dels. Schnieder wore a blonde wig in dress rehearsal, but he didn't during the live broadcast. They thought that it was better the first time it was performed, so that is the version that now appears in reruns.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Tina Fey: An Austrian ski resort is holding the ski world championship for blondes, in which blonde women will run down the slopes and then try to ski back up them.

      • Tina Fey: According to military analysts, an invasion of Iraq by US forces could cost between 20 and 50 billion dollars. In order to offset those costs the Pentagon has announced that it will refer to the invasion as the Verizon Wireless Pizza Hut War on Iraq.

      • Jimmy Fallon: Warner Brothers announced Tuesday that an illegal copy of the second Harry Potter film appeared on the internet just days before its release in theaters. Even worse, apparently a book containing the entire story of the film came out four years ago.

      • Tina Fey: You have to go.
        Drunk Girl: First, lemme just say one more thing: "Live from New York, it's Saturday..."

        Choir: Blow your harmonica, it's time for Hanukkah, once again it's Hanukkah, the miracle of Hanukkah...
        Adam Sandler: Thank you. It's great to be back. Let's go.
        Hanukkah is the festival of lights.
        One day of presents? Hell no, we get the eight crazy nights!
        But if you still feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree, I guess my first two songs didn't do it for you, so here comes number three!
        Ross and Phoebe from "Friends" say the Hanukkah blessing,
        So does Lenny's pal Squiggy and "Will and Grace"'s Debra Messing!
        Melissa Gilbert and Michael Landon never mixed meat with dairy,
        Maybe they should have called that show "Little Kosher on the Prairie"!
        We got Jerry Lewis, Ben Stiller, and Jack Black,
        Tom Arnold converted to Judaism, but you guys can have him back!
        We may not get to kiss underneath the mistletoe,
        But we can do it all night long with Deuce Bigalow!
        Rob Schneider: I'm Jewish!
        Adam Sandler: Put on your yarmulke, here comes Hanukkah...
        Rob Schneider: The guy in Willie Nelson's band who plays harmonica celebrates Hanukkah!
        Adam Sandler: Tiny Elvis, ladies and gentlemen! Tiny El Skris! Schneider, I did not know you were Jewish.
        Rob Schneider: Filipino Jew. In fact, I have to go home and light the first pig.
        Adam Sandler: Osama bin Laden, not a big fan of the Jews... well maybe that's because he lost the figure skating match to gold medalist Sarah Hughes... her mama's Jewish.
        Houdini and David Blaine escape straightjackets with such precision, but one thing they cut not get out of, their painful circumcision!
        Gwyneth Paltrow's half-Jewish but a full-time Oscar winner,
        Jennifer Connelly's half-Jewish too, and I'd like to put more in her!
        There's Lou Reed, Beck, and Paula Abdul,
        Joey Ramone is making punk rock music, but first came Hebrew school! Hey!
        Gotta live for Hanukkah, it's time to celebrate Hanukkah, I hope I get an Abtronica on this joyful, joyful Hanukkah!
        So get a high Colonica and soil your long johnukkahs, if you really wanukkah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy Hanukkah! Happy holidays, everybody! Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!
