Baba Wawa ... Gilda Radner

[Despite her pronounced speech impediment, broadcast journalist Baba Wawa sits in an easy chair and addresses the camera.]

Baba Wawa: Hewwo! This is Baba Wawa! ... I'm speaking to you tonight from my home which you all saw on my wast special and weawwy wiked awot -- wemember? ... We took a wittle tour of my pwace and you got to see some of my weawwy intewesting personal bewongings -- wike a miwwow, a cwock, and a wittle wump of coal. ... Pwetty engwossing. I thought so, too. That's why, for my next special, instead of wasting time with extwaneous pewsonalities wike the Pwesident of the United States, the whole show's going to be about one tewwific pewson who I weawwy wespect -- me! ...

Instead of talking to cewebwities, I'll be talking to myself. It'll be fwee, fwank, weal and weveawing. ... I'll be taking you back to my apartment and you'll have a ware opportunity to see some of my favowite twinkets, incwuding my wings, my wugs, my dwapes, my pwants, my wecords, my wipsticks and my twue waison d'etwa. ... Also - also, my wange, my wadiator, my wadio, my wecord pwayer, my waincoat, my nasal aspiwator, and my best fwiend, Wita Taywor. ...

Now, a wot of people thought my wast pwogwam was pwetty cwummy. Well, this one's twuwy cwammed with cwever wevewations, wapport and wepartee. ... So tune in to "Baba Wawa Talks to Herself." It should be pwetty tewwific. ...

[Applause and a SUPER that reads BABA WAWA TALKS TO HERSELF as we pull back and fade out.]
