John Goodman: Thank you very much, woah Saturday Night Live. I have had an incredible year I made two movies "Sea of Love" [audience cheers] plus "Always" with Richard Dreyfus. Also, five weeks ago, I got married. [audience cheers and applauds]

John Goodman: I took the plunge. My wife is here tonight. Thatís my brother next to her, and his girl Jean. Hi, honey. [audience cheers and applauds] We haven't even had a honeymoon yet. I came right here from the wedding, I have been working on the show all week. Canít wait till one oíclock, heard great things about sex. Course the high point of the year has to be working on "Roseanne". [audience cheers and applauds] Oh, what can I say about Roseanne Arnold, sheís a hell of a lady, sheís funny, generous, and as a matter of fact, she came here tonight to wish me luck. Sheís backstage right now. Roseanne, if you can hear me: I love you, honey.
