      • George Carlin: On that first show, I did a monologue about God. And before the show was over, by one in the morning, uh, we had the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Cooke, on the phone, complaining about the monologue. Seems he didn't think that God was a suitable subject for a monologue. Okay in a sermon but - not in a monologue. ... And I didn't really say anything that wrong -- I felt. I mean, all I said was, it was my feeling that if - if you look at it real carefully, that maybe - maybe - God isn't perfect. You know? Just maybe He's not perfect. I mean, if He created us in His own image and likeness, how perfect could He be, you know? ... I mean, uh, if God created everything, I'd say He has a serious quality control problem. ...

      • The 11/7/04 rerun on Classic SNL featured the rerun broadcast from 3/16/85 in which Eddie Murphy sketches were edited into the show. "Alan Thicke's In Thickeness and In Health" and Frankie Goes To Hollywood's performance of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" were cut and replaced with an old "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood" and two filmed segments from earlier in the season.

      • As Don Pardo introduces George Carlin, footage is shown of Carlin walking to the stage on the very first "NBC's Saturday Night" broadcast.
