    • Gilda: Well, it seems like the writers just found out that, uh, Deng went back to China. You know, they're all so busy they didn't get a chance to watch the news or anything and, uh... now Deng isn't even here anymore.
      Jane: Well, he left five days ago.
      Gilda: I know, and they just found out.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Steve Martin was originally penciled in to host this episode, but cancelled due to a schedule conflict. Cicely was scheduled to host the next week's show and was bumped up.

    • Cicely tried to work without cue cards for most of the week. She finally relented late Friday night, much to the dismay of cue card men who worked well into the night writing her parts down.

    • Cicely also rubbed SNL the wrong way, refusing to do several parts and blasting the writers for their mistreatment of Garrett Morris.
