    • QUOTES (1)

      • Executive #1: Hello, Miss Hoban. First, I'd like to... we'd all like to thank you for bringing your complaint to the Grievance Board. Sexual harrassment is an important problem to any public corporation like Chudd, and we feel a responsibility to nip this in the bud.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The "Nerds Nativity" was provoked the most heated battle between SNL and NBC hierarchy. New network Standards officials Ralph Daniels and Bill Clotworthy vehemently rejected the production of a sketch which seemed to spoof the birth of Christ. The blazing row continued past 11:30 P.M., and at its end three production assistants rushed the changes in the sketch to cue cards just before the sketch began. (This controversy was a central plot point in It's Always Something, the ABC movie on Gilda Radner.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Schiller's Reel: Java Junkie
        This film, like the rest of Tom Schiller's productions, was a send-up of other film styles. In this case, Peter Aykroyd stars in a staunch, black-and-white film noir à la Warner Bros. Pictures.
