    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • During the "Star Search" sketch, Angry Comic (Wayans) tells a joke, waits for a rim shot, then mimics the sound himself. The drummer then does the rim shot, which causes Wayans to break character.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Jay Leno: Used to be "Reader's Digest"! Now, it's "TV Guide"! "TV Guide" is now considered reading in America! When did this happen? I think it happened the same day ketchup became a vegetable in this country! ... "Are you comin' to bed, dear?" "Oh, in a couple of hours, honey. I just want to see who's on 'Cross Wits' for the rest of the week. ... Put my book marker on Thursday so as not to lose my place." ... I like the new ad campaign: "You need 'TV Guide' because TV's getting more complicated every day." Boy, you know there are people out there saying, "We'd like to watch 'The Dukes of Hazzard,' we just don't have the educational background... If only there was a supplement we could follow along with"...

      • Dennis Miller: Newsweek magazine's cover story this week was on Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, whom they refer to as "the second most powerful man in America." The most powerful man, of course, for obvious reasons, is singer-actor John Davidson. (Cue photo of John Davidson with a streak of white in his hair) ... (Dennis chuckles and points to his own hair) What's with that white thing, Johnny? Get a hold of that, okay?
