    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the cold opening, Dennis Miller tells Lorne that he never got the chance to say "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" Miller actually said it in the cold opening for the 01-18-86 episode with host Harry Dean Stanton. However, many people purposely forget the season featuring that episode existed.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Dennis Miller: This week, General Norman Scwartzkoff got into some hot water, speaking to the West Point cadet corps. He called Pentagon insiders who criticized the Army "military fairies," a phrase which offended some of the gay and lesbian community. Here to clarify his meaning, is General "Stormin'" Norman Schwartzkoff. Welcome, General!
        Gen. Norman Schwartzkoff: Well, thank you, Dennis! Let me say right off that, when I used the term "fairy", I was speaking colloquially. Where I grew up in New Jersey, the word "fairy" was often substituted for other terms. For instance, on my block, the Staten Island Ferry is called the Stetan Island Gay Boy. And, of course, we all believed in the Tooth F****t! Let's not let this minor incident diminish the fact that our combined forces kicked some Iraqi butt! Hell, we got the damn thing on video cassette! Those Iraqis are lucky I had an army, 'cause if I didn't, I would have been forced to go over there myself and personally beat the livin' tar out of each and every individual who came within my parameter! (stands) And I'll tell you one more thing: I want Holyfield! I want Holyfield! I showed you what these guns can do in the Middle East, now I'm gonna show what they can do in the ring! This summer, Atlantic City, the Taj Mahal: Holyfield/Schwartzkoff!! It's the War on the Shore! I'm the Whale That Prevails! Vander, you're going DOWN, Sir! In three! You will take your punishment! (rips open shirt to reveal "Stormin' Norman" t-shirt)
        Dennis Miller: General Norman Schwartzkoff, folks. You need one of those spit shields from the salad bar..

      • Dennis Miller: Well, this is my last show.. I want to thank all the people I worked with, you couldn't ask for a nicer group of people. And I want to thank all of you. It's been my real privilege to work here, and I'll miss it a lot. Guess what, folks? That's the news, and I... am... out of here!

      • Dennis Miller: Well, Lorne.. it's been a great six years, but.. it's time for me to move on.
        Lorne Michaels: Is this really your last show?
        Dennis Miller: That's right.
        Lorne Michaels: You're really leaving us, Dennis?
        Dennis Miller: Yes. This is it.
        Lorne Michaels: Are you sure?
        Dennis Miller: Yes, sir.
        Lorne Michaels: You're not going to come back every week to hang out on the set like Lovitz, are you?
        Dennis Miller: No. No, I'm really going.
        Lorne Michaels: Because that would be pathetic. I mean, the man has no life.
        Dennis Miller: This is definitely my last show.
        Lorne Michaels: I mean, thank God every now and then he gets a movie..
        Dennis Miller: Yeah. Well, I'm serious. This is it for me.
        Lorne Michaels: Well.. okay. Is there anything special you'd like to do for your last show?
        Dennis Miller: Really?
        Lorne Michaels: Anything, Dennis, you name it.
        Dennis Miller: Well, you know, I've always wanted to say, "Live, from New York, it's Saturday Night."
        Lorne Michaels: Well, there's the camera. Be my guest.
        Dennis Miller: "Live, from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
        (the show doesn't start)
        Lorne Michaels: (pats Dennis' back) That was great. Uh, well.. we're gonna miss you, Dennis.
        Dennis Miller: Yeah, I'm gonna miss you, too, Lorne. (they shake hands)
        Lorne Michaels: Well, time to start the show. "Live, from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
