Let us mark this date: November 17 (or 18th since WU is after midnight), 2012. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie makes his first SNL appearance, sure to be the first of many. Especially as we near 2016.
Mayor Rudolph Guiliani: Having our city’s institutions up and running sends a message that New York City is open for business. “Saturday Night Live” is one of our great New York City institutions, and that’s why it’s important for you to do your show tonight.
Lorne Michaels: Can we be funny?
Mayor Rudolph Guiliani: Why start now? “Live, from New York! It’s Saturday Night!”
My favorite SNL sketch of all time for three reasons:
1. Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon”
2. Tom Hanks on the sax
3. Will Ferrell being so awesome to share the stage with not only the whole cast but past hosts and musical guests. AMAZING!
this is the best
Even 10 years ago, “smart people” knew this electronics on planes thing was ridiculous.
Toby: We’re flying in a Lockheed Eagle series L10-11. It came off the line twenty months ago. It carries a Sim-5 transponder tracking system. Are you telling me I can still flummox this thing with something I bought at Radio Shack?
