  • Quotes

    • Steve Martin: Do I look okay? I know what you're saying. You're saying, "Hey. Where has Steve been? Haven't seen him on 'Saturday Night Live' in a while..." [ chuckles ] They want me. They call me every week to do the show. But I have been holding out for a little bit of this.. [ rubs his fingers together ] And so the calls fly back and forth, and I made a deal, and I'm very happy to be here tonight. I wish I'd asked for money instead of a little bit of this... [ rubs his fingers together again ]

  • Notes

    • The McCartneys do not perform- in fact, are interviewed live from London several times by Father Guido Sarducci. The video for their new single "Coming Up" was shown. The real musical guest is 3-D.
