    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Will Ferrell: Hey, I'm the only dumbass here with a red tie!

      • Robert Goulet: What you get is one full hour of rip roarin' rap music. Not by some dubious ruffians without the chops, but by a professionally trained voice man. No musical accompaniment. It's just me out there. Watch what I do with this little ditty from Mr. Sisqo called The Thong Song -
        'Oh girl that dress is so scandalous,
        And you know another n*gga couldn't handle it.
        You see dumps like a truck, truck, truck
        Not like a what, what, what
        Baby move your butt, butt, butt
        I think I'll sing it again
        Sha bang, sha bop, bop bop, thong song' Something like that.

    • NOTES (4)

      • Sketches cut after dress rehearsal: a sketch where a kid's birthday party is held featuring a rude and vulgar Babar the Elephant; a TV Funhouse called "Sex in the Country"; a sketch where Pat Buchanan (Jimmy Fallon) visits Al Gore (Darrell Hammond) and a drunk, vomiting Tipper Gore (Molly Shannon); a sketch parody of "Ally MacBeal"; a sketch where Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz along with dancing women encourage voter turnout in the upcoming election; a sketch where a group (Molly Shannon, Charlize Theron, Chris Kattan, Horatio Sanz, Rachel Dratch) encourage each others' differences; "Magic Mouth," a commercial about hiding flatulence noise; and a sketch where a doctor (Horatio Sanz) offers a woman (Charlize) treatment for her dry skin.

      • Sketches not shown in 60 minute version: Weekend Update, "Marilyn Monroe," "The Coconut Bangers Ball," and Paul Simon's performance of "Old."

      • The TV Funhouse for this episode (The All-New Adventures of Mr. T) was supposed to air on the Dana Carvey/The Wallflowers episode.

      • The E! rerun of this episode has a dress rehearsal version of the "A Glimpse of our Possible Future" segment featuring Ralph Nader (played by Jimmy Fallon). One can tell it's a dress rehearsal because: (a) two papier-mache pigs fly in as Nader is speaking in the dress rehearsal (the live show has three) and (b) the taller devil (played by SNL writer Scott Wainio, not cast member Will Ferrell) doesn't have his red gloves on (the live show version, Wainio does have his gloves on).
