    • (After being caught in the act by her husband she makes up a wild story about who he is and how he died.)
      Husband: Alright, just wait a minute, now. Who is this guy? Let's start from the beginning. How is he here, how did he die?
      Wife: Well, he's, uh.. he's a delivery boy. He, uh.. I guess - I don't know. I guess he just had a heart attack or something, I don't know. What happened, he just fell on top of me gasping, and the next thing I knew, I couldn't move.
      Husband: Well, what was he delivering?
      Wife: [ looking about the room ] That lamp.
      Husband: That lamp?
      Wife: Yeah.
      Husband: We've had that lamp for twelve years.
      Wife: Yes, I know, honey, and I know how much you love that lamp. and this afternoon, when I was in the kitchen, ironing your socks, uh.. the lamp - I was ironing it, and the board fell over, and the thing fell on top of it, and, uh.. well, I went to have it fixed, you see, and he came to deliver it. He delivered it.
      Husband: That lamp looks the same as it's always looked. It doesn't look any different.

    • Chevy Chase:  Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase, and that's the news. Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow - just kidding. And you're not.

  • NOTES (2)

    • NBC never reran this episode in its original timeslot. However, it later appeared twice on Classic SNL.

    • The "Johnny Angel" sketch would prompt two Hell's Angels from New York's Lower East Side to storm into NBC a few days later. They didn't like the idea of some comedy show wearing the winged-skull insignia. Dan Aykroyd insisted he give the costumes—with merely a traced insignia—to the Angels at their headquarters. SNL got along fabulously with the Angels after that.
