    Some sketches off the top of my head that I always enjoy (don't know the official titles, but I'll try to give quotations as best as I can remember them):

    Kabob sketch ("If I don't have the kabob now, I may never have the kabob again.")

    Imprisoned Monkeys ("I don't have the power because I have the monkeys, no, I have the power because I'll let the monkeys out")

    The Tea Guy tries to give up tea ("Go ahead, lick my bag")

    French-Canadian suit traders

    Lazy cop ("Hey kid, did you see anything" *shoots kid* "Oink, oink, pig comin' through")

    Guy looking for a barfight ("Hey, what's up yer craw?")

    Sketches with the two appathetic brothers/friends (not sure which they were)

    Sketches with the escaped mental patients (Geri(sp?) and Geri Sizzler)

    Most of the skits I like are from season 2. Like for instance, the daddy drank sketch, the one with the business suit trappers, and the simon and hecubus skits. And for characters, I would have to say Hecubus and Buddy Cole. Oh, and Mr.Tiscic(Headcrusher) is pretty funny too.

    The head crusher skits. Those are the best. I also really like that skit about that guy that has a list of things to do and he gets abducted by bank robbers.

    Merc_2k has a pretty sharp list. I think I can agree with all of it. But I would add, also off the top of my head:

    The pen - this sketch is so dramatic about something so inconsequential "stop him, he's got my pen!"

    7 things to do - Kevin is perfect in this role. "Gotta keep on top of my life"

    The king of empty promises - Dean and Lex are a great odd couple. "will do"

    Let me start out by saying I adore the Kids in the Hall. There are
    so many wonderful sketches and characters, but the one that stands out
    for me the most has to be a monologue on love that Bruce did. Here is
    the transcript. PURE GENIUS!

    Bruce: I'm gonna slow things down a bit. Where was the love my horoscope promised? I have looked under my mattress where I keep things, hidden. There was no love for me in the corridors of power. I found no love in the bar. Just songs about love and bourbon, lots of bourbon. There was no love in volunteer work, in "just being myself." I found no love in bank line-ups, in the sports section of my daily newspaper. I found no love in the Canadian praries, just farmers. Farmers with their own problems, and used farm equipment. I did not find love on the phone, just a network of the un-loved, with something called "call waiting." I did not find love at Eaton Center, just bargain hunters, bargain hunting. I found no love at the Karoake club, I think. See, I couldn't make it inside. Noone needs love quite that badly. There was no love in the VIP room of the Big Bop. Just me and a bowl of peanuts, and Bryan Adams. I talked to the bowl of peanuts all night, if you know what I mean. Would you believe I actually looked for love in the health food store? There I only found women buying steroids disguised as sea kelp. There was no love for me in the day care industry, just hard women dressed in pink. I found no love at the antique market, just hopeless couples muttering about the family unit, the family unit, the family- shut up. I found no love in burning the bottom of my feet with Cigarellos. Just a certain amount of artistic satisfaction. I found no love in the hollowed-out belly of a dead elk. Just warmth, and quiet. But then the questions: "Hey, why are you in the hollowed-out belly of a dead elk? Are you in there because of love?" And always, "You know if you're homeless, man, you cannot sleep there." There is no love in writing about love, only a deadline.

    I loved buddy cole. No one seemed to list the King of Empty promises. Suppose he "slipped your mind".

    To me, the funniest sketches I have ever seen are both of Bruce's letters to the bike tire theif and the guy who watched him (Poor Bruce). I could probably name others but then the post would be TOO long...

    The best scene (or skit, as seems to be customary here) that i've seen is "the nutcracker in a very small room". I remember seeing it back when the episodes went on first - and i remember laughing harder than i've ever done previously.


    The problem is, i can't find it. Anyone know which episode it is in? It isn't listed anywhere as far as i can see.
