    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • From the card "Don Pardo" wrote for James Van Der Beek:

        "Won't you let an old man take care of you?
        We could go horseback riding
        And dress up like Chinese railroad workers."

      • (From the voiceover previewing the next broadcast)
        Don Pardo: Next week's host... James Van Der Beek!
        Lorne: No he's not, Don.
        Don: But James and I are gonna get married!

    • NOTES (7)

      • Sketches/segments not shown in the 60 minute version: the Brian Fellow segment on Weekend Update, "Frankenteen," "The War at Home and Abroad," "Dog Show," and "Cats Home Video."

      • James Van Der Beek was the first cast member from Dawsons Creek to host SNL.

      • In the "Dog Show" sketch, Van Der Beek's character accidentally calls his dog "Gingershitsnap". The NBC rerun has the obscenity removed.

      • Chris Parnell wrote the "Cats" commercial parody, marking the first time something he wrote himself made it on the air.

      • Due to illness, Don Pardo cannot be heard in this broadcast. Darrell Hammond pretended to be Pardo for the opening credits, when he claimed to be James Van Der Beek's #1 fan, and during the teaser for the next live broadcast.

      • This marks the first appearance of Brian Fellow, in which he commentates during Weekend Update. He will return to SNL in "Brian Fellow's Safari Planet," the sketch for which he is better remembered.

      • Woody Harrelson was originally scheduled to host this episode with musical guest Whitney Houston. Both dropped out due to schedule conflicts.
