  Season 2: Mardi Gras Special






Mardi Gras Special

Goodnights

.....Randy Newman
.....Buck Henry
.....Jane Curtin

Randy Newman: Thank you! Good night! Good night to you all, and now over to Buck and Jane!

[ cut back to SNL's reviewing grandstand at the corner of Bourbon and Canal streets ]

Buck Henry: Thank you, Randy. Uh, Jane, you might as well just tell them all.

Jane Curtin: The parade has not been delayed - it doesn't exist! It never did. "Mardi Gras" is just the French word meaning "no parade." Good night!

Buck Henry: Thanks, and good night.

[ credits roll, as the crowd cheers ]

[ there's a momentary glimpse of Garrett Morris and the cast and crew standing among a cut sketch -- Garett, most noticably, holding up a book that reads "Roots II." ]

Don Pardo V/O: Next week: Saturday Night's host will be Steve Martin, with special guests Lily Tomlin and The Kinks. That's 11:30, 10:30 Central Time. This is Don Pardo. Good night!
