[ open on the cast standing around on Home Base ]

Gilda Radner: Uh, Chevy, uh – I don’t think it’s that John was hurt, it’s just that he thinks you’re getting more attention than he is. You know what I mean?

Chevy Chase: [ he shrugs ] That’s not a good excuse.

Gilda Radner: Well, I know. But I don’t think he was that hurt…

Chevy Chase: [ pointing at the camera ] We’re on! we’re on the air.

[ they all look at the camera and smile ]

Chevy Chase: Well, here we are!

Gilda Radner: Back from vacation!

Chevy Chase: And we want money!

[ John Belushi enters ]

Gilda Radner: Hi, John!

John Belushi: What’s going on?

[ Belushi shakes hands with everybody, as the audience applauds enthusiastically ]

John Belushi: How’s everybody doing?

Garrett Morris: Great!

John Belushi: Yeah, yeah. I just got in from L.A. Anyhow, it’s nice to see you. Gilda, you’re so sweet. Jane! How’s Patrick doing?

Jane Curtin: [ smiling ] Just fine, just fine!

John Belushi: Danny!

Dan Aykroyd: Hi, John!

[ Belushi looks up at Chevy ]

John Belushi: Ohhh, Mr. Chase.

[ the cast looks on uncomfortably ]

Dan Aykroyd: I’ll give you a drive home, John.

John Belushi: Yeah.

Chevy Chase: How you doing? Nice suit.

John Belushi: Thanks. Listen, Chevy, uhh — I’ve been thinking about, uh, what I said and stuff, and, uh… we’ve been together a long time, we’ve been friends a long time, and I don’t think that should, you know, stop us from being friends. You know, we gotta work together, so what do you say? Huh? Let bygones be bygones?

Chevy Chase: Are you serious?

John Belushi: Yeah.

[ Chevy looks to the other cast members ]

Jane Curtin: Go on! Go on!

[ Chevy hugs Belushi ]

John Belushi: Heyyy!

[ the rest of the cast cheer them on ]

John Belushi: Hey, man, yeah!

Chevy Chase: [ holding out his hands for low-fives ] Let’s do the show, huh! [ John slaps him ten ] Alright! Now we’re talking! Alright, you’re serious about it, now, right?

[ they begin to do an elaborate seriers of high-fives — forward, backwards, kneeling, across their shoes, etc. ]

[ finally, they take it too far and begin to knock fists and punch one another playfully ]

[ Belushi punches Chevt one hard, sending him flying over a folding chair and flat onto the floor by the audience’s feet ]

Chevy Chase: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
