Nancy Kerrigan: Thank you very much, thanks, thanks, thank you very much, thanks (speaking over applause). Itís a thrill to be here hosting "Saturday Night Live". Before we begin Iíd like to clear something up. When I was at Disneyworld, on the float with Mickey, what I actually said was, "This is the horniest thing Iíve ever done." (much audience laughter) But the real reason Iím happy to be on the show tonight, this is my chance to get some things off my chest. Iím here on live TV, uncensored, and Iím ready to talk. So, go ahead, no topic is off limits, ask me anything you want about the last few months. (turns to acknowledge audience member) Over here?

(Male Audience Member 1 in audience standing up)

Male Audience Member 1: Yeah, I donít know how to say this so Iím just gonna ask, what exactly is an axle? (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: Well ok, an axle is the only jump that takes off going foreword. You jump from one outside edge of one skate, and you land on the outside edge of the other skate. Yes, over here. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Male Audience Member 2 in audience standing up)

Male Audience Member 2: Umm, can I ask you a question about Tonya Harding?

Nancy Kerrigan: Sure.

Male Audience Member 2: Are you jealous of Tonya Harding (much audience laughter), I mean you work so hard all your life and then she just steps in and wins 5 gold medals. (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: Tonya Harding didnít win 5 gold medals.

Male Audience Member 2: Di..did I say Tonya Harding? I meant Bonnie Blair. (much audience laughter) Are you jealous of Bonnie Blair?

Nancy Kerrigan: Well, no I was really happy for Bonnie Blair, sheís great.

Male Audience Member 2: OhÖ

Nancy Kerrigan: Yes, over here. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Male Audience Member 3 in audience standing up)

Male Audience Member 3: Yeah, uhh, I think itís very brave of you to come out here tonight and talk about Tonya Harding, I canít believe youíve been quiet this long. Now, I have a question about speed skates, why are they longer than regular figure skates? (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: WellÖ

Male Audience Member 3: I mean it seems like you could go faster on shorter skates.

Nancy Kerrigan: Well, I donít know the physics of it, but I think the longer skates give you more leverage. Uhh yes. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Male Audience Member 2 in audience standing up again)

Male Audience Member 2: Uh yeah, I have another question, uhh, after all this, do you hate Tonya Harding? I... (puts hand to head)...I did it again, I meant Bonnie Blair. (much audience laughter) I... Iíve got Tonya Harding on the brain.

Nancy Kerrigan: No, I donít hate Bonnie Blair; I just said that sheís great. But I would like talk about whatís happened to me recently. Uhh yes over here. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Male Audience Member 4 in audience standing up)

Male Audience Member 4: Yeah, I got a question, uhh, wasnít it great that, after falling all those times, Tonya Harding finally won a gold?

Nancy Kerrigan: I think you mean Dan Jansenís gold.

Male Audience Member 4: Yeah. Dan Jan... didnít I say Dan Jansen? (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: No, you said Tonya Harding.

Male Audience Member 4: Geeze, now heís got me doing it.

(much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: Ok, yes over here. (turns to acknowledge two audience members)

(Translator and Oksana Baiul in audience standing up)

(much audience laughter)

Oksana Baiul: (light whimpering, sad expression)

Nancy Kerrigan: Oksana Baiul, Iím glad youíre here.

(Oksana speaks inaudibly to Translator)

Translator: (Russian accent, translating) She says, she says she does not speak English, and nothing you say is making any sense, because the language youíre speaking is not the language she is speaks in her country.

Nancy Kerrigan: Ok, over here. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Female Audience Member 1 standing up in audience)

Female Audience Member 1: Yeah, can I ask a question about that whole knee thing?

Nancy Kerrigan: Yes, please go ahead.

Female Audience Member 1: Yeah, uh, what makes the human knee bend? (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: Well, itís a ball and socket joint that swings kinda like this. (swings arm to demonstrate) Yes. (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Male Audience Member 5 in audience standing up)

Male Audience Member 5: Uh yeah, I have a question.

Nancy Kerrigan: Ok.

Male Audience Member 5: Not for you, for the girl who asked about the knee. (much audience laughter)

Female Audience Member 1: Yeah?

Male Audience Member 5: Look, if youíre really interested about the knee, I got this great book that explains like the whole leg. (much audience laughter) So if you want it, I...I can talk to you after the show.

Female Audience Member 1: Great.

Male Audience Member 6: Umm yeah, I...I...I have a question about Tonya.

Nancy Kerrigan: Let me guess, Tonya Roberts, right?

Male Audience Member 6: No, Tonya Tucker (much audience laughter), do you think sheís had a rough life being married to Glenn Campbell?

Nancy Kerrigan: I donít really know. Yeah? (turns to acknowledge audience member)

(Female Audience Member 2 in audience standing up)

Female Audience Member 2: Hi, is it true that because of the Martin Lawrence monologue, hosts are now only allowed to take questions from the audience?

Nancy Kerrigan: Yes, thatís true. Over here (turns to acknowledge three audience members)

(Jeff Gillooly, Tonya Harding, Shawn Eckhardt in audience stand up)

Tonya Harding: Yeah, uh, (much audience laughter) we have a question.

Nancy Kerrigan: Ok.

Tonya Harding: Uh, whoís hosting the show next week?

Jeff Gillooly: Yeah, do they need someone to host (much audience laughter), I mean we could... you know (gestures to Tonya and Shawn Eckhardt) (much audience laughter)

Nancy Kerrigan: Uhh, I think they have a host. Ok weíve got a great show, Aretha Franklin is here (audience cheers), so stick around weíll be right back.
