Suicide Hotline

Hotline Answerer…Chevy Chase

[Open on close-up of phone ringing. Cut to wide shot of room with a desk, easy chair and lamp, and a stairway leading off to the right. The hotline answerer stumbles down the stairs, drops his briefcase, knocks over the chair and lamp, and falls over the desk answering the phone.]

Hotline Answerer: Suicide Prevention Center. [He hears a gunshot on the other end, then hangs up the phone and turns to the camera behind him] “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
