    • QUOTES (1)

      • Doctor: You know, every seven minutes a child is wheeled into the hospital after eating too many refrigerator magnets... those little doodads that resemble cookies and candies and fruits. Sometimes Junior can't tell them from the real thing. The results (pulls a license plate loose from Billy's torso) can be tragic.

    • NOTES (3)

      • In dress rehearsal, the "Mr. Blackwell" segment appeared during "Saturday Night News." In the live show, however, the segment appeared directly after the "Rich Hall's Election Report" segment.

      • The film "Buddy Young Jr. is Back!" appears in this episode in most repeats, replacing a sequence where Jackson catches on to the control room ruse. It originally aired in the McKean/Khan episode from later in Year 10.

      • This episode features Dick Ebersol's second and final on-screen appearance as executive producer of SNL. He appears during the goodnights to accept an award from the Reverend Jesse Jackson.
