    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Dennis Miller: While Wall Street suffered a down week, condom stocks continued to rise. I often hear people nowadays whine about the fact they have to wear condoms when they make love. This seems to me to be a rather minor argument. I'll tell you how I approach it. I wear two in my everyday life. When I go to make love, I take one off, I feel like a wild man! Sort of like swinging two bats in the on-deck circle.

      • Dennis Miller: Beleagured Judge Robert Bork, in an effort to win some public sympathy, deliberately fell into an abandoned well in his backyard, trapping himself thirty feet underground. So far, no effort has been made to rescue him.

    • NOTES (5)

      • This was the first of three episodes to be affected by the 1987 NABET strike. A lot of the camera work in this episode is somewhat stilted, and most of the tech workers' names do not appear in the closing credits.

      • This was the first time Sting appeared on SNL as a musical guest.

      • With this episode, Steve Martin ties Buck Henry as SNL's most frequent host.

      • This is the only show to not have a dress rehearsal done before the live show. There was a fire in a nearby studio and the cast and crew were evacuated from Rockefeller Center right before they were to start the dress rehearsal. The show went on at Steve Martin's insistence.

      • Kevin Nealon becomes a full fledged cast member in this episode.
