    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Several technical foul-ups occur through the show, mainly cameras not turning on at the right time. It is first noticable during the "Bizarro World" sketch and during Saint James' introduction of The Kinks performing "Destroyer." Also, the camera is focused on Joe Piscopo when a man attempts to climb aboard the boat in the "Here in a Lifeboat" sketch.

      • Robin Duke and Mary Gross can be seen putting on their Bizarro masks during "The Bizarro World"

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Ronald McDonald: No no, not yours, Sally, McMarilyn's breasts. [Rolls over and lays on his back in bed] Did you notice them at the party tonight?
        Sally: I wasn't looking at McMarilyn's breasts.
        Ronald McDonald: Yeah, they were huge. They were like a pair of McMelons, I'm telling you. You know, I bet you she's hiding something in there.

      • Buckwheat: (mangling "Looking for Love") "Wookin' Pa Nub in all da wong paces. Wookin ' Pa Nub."
        Mel Brandt: Once Buckwheat sings a song, it's eternally his.

    • NOTES (5)

      • "(Single Bars and) Single Women," the song Christine Ebersole sings in this episode, was written by Michael O'Donoghue. Oddly enough, this song became a hit for Dolly Parton in 1982.

      • The "Assassination Aftermath" film was a tribute to Anwar al-Sadat, the Egyptian leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner that was slain on October 6, 1981.

      • Rickie Lee Jones was originally announced as musical guest. She dropped out for unknown reasons.

      • When Ha!, MTV's failed attempt at a comedy network, was launched April 1, 1990, this was the first SNL the fledgling network used. And they aired it uncut. Sadly for purists, Ha! would fail in less than six months, merging with HBO's struggling The Comedy Channel to become Comedy Central.

      • Susan St James will later become producer Dick Ebersol's wife.
