    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the "Hypnotic Fireplace" sketch, Billy Crystal's wig becomes lopsided after Martin Short smacks Billy in the head. Billy is unaware of this until Martin re-adjusts the wig at the end of the sketch. Also, Rich Hall's fake front teeth fall out while he plays magician Doug Henning during "Saturday Night News". He covers by saying it was an illusion, then ducks behind the desk to put the teeth back in.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Kathleen Turner: Thank you! In my opinion, it's about time they had a woman hosting this show! [ audience cheers ] And I'm very glad to be here doing it. I guess a lot of you saw.. Romancing The Stone? [ audience applauds ] And you might be saying to yourself, "Wait a minute. Wasn't she, uh... more of a brunete?" That was mud! I've washed my hair since then.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This is Harry Shearer's final episode. He left midseason because of creative differences with Dick Ebersol. To quote Shearer when the media had cited "creative differences" for his departure: "I was creative, and they [Ebersol's people] were different." Despite his departure, his image is still shown in the opening credits for the rest of the season (spray-painting an elevated train as it goes down the track) but his name is not mentioned.
