    • NOTES (4)

      • To commemorate the season finale, a montage of images from past sketches appear as the credits roll after the goodnights. This has not been done before or since.

      • Mary Gross and Brian Doyle-Murray screen a banned promo spot for the upcoming concert film The Secret Policeman's Other Ball. Monty Python alum Graham Chapman (who had starred in the spot) "apologizes" during Newsbreak.

      • "Ebony & Ivory" produced one of Joe Piscopo's most celebrated battles over his Frank Sinatra character. He tried to change the opening 30 seconds, which had Sinatra waiting for Stevie Wonder in the recording studio. "Frank is too big to wait for Stevie Wonder," Piscopo said, unsuccessfully. "Stevie would have to wait for Frank."

      • This is Brian Doyle-Murray, Christine Ebersole and Tony Rosato's last episode; Murray quit and Ebersole and Rosato were fired. This is also the last "SNL Newsbreak with Brian Doyle-Murray."
