      • Auctioneer: Now, ladies and gentlemen, if you will turn to page 22 in your catalogues, we have Lot 36, Ringo Starr.
        (Ringo Starr enters, dressed in his classic Beatles "Ed Sullivan Show" outfit of black slacks, grey collarless jacket over a white dress shirt. Ann leads him around the room to display Mr. Starkey.)
        He was for nine years the drummer with the Beatles and performed with them on all their albums and tours. As you can see, he's in very good condition. I will open the bidding at $75,000. Do I hear 75? Do I hear $75,000 for this drummer with the Beatles? Do I hear $65,000 for Ringo Starr? A member of the Beatles...talented musician...owner of a large ring collection. (Calls on the second bidder, who has raised his hand) Yes, sir, $65,000?
        Second Bidder: No, no--I was wondering about the jacket he's wearing.
        Auctioneer: Yes...
        Second Bidder: Was it by any chance ever worn by Paul?
        Auctioneer: I'm sorry, no sir. Do I hear $15,000 for Ringo Starr? $15,000? Good Lord, this man is a human being!

    • NOTES (3)

      • "Saturday Night News" does not appear in this episode.

      • This was Jim Belushi's last episode for five weeks. He was fired by Dick Ebersol a couple days after the broadcast for "not working out," and was then rehired after the departure of Harry Shearer.

      • A rerun of this show was a last-minute replacement for the John Candy/Eugene Levy/Hall & Oates broadcast that was intended to air on 3/9/85. The rerun was heavily edited, cutting "Texxon," "Massacre on 34th Street," "Faking Mental Illness" and Herbie Hancock's first performance ("Rockit" was reedited to use Ringo Starr's introduction from "Junku"). Said segments were replaced by an assortment of old Eddie Murphy sketches and filmed pieces from earlier that season.
