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

Jane Curtin: And now back to Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams at the Apollo Ball.

[ dissolve to Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams at the Apollo Ball, in the Hyatt Regency ]

Penny Marshall: [ loudly ] Hi! Here we are, back at the Apollo! [ Cindy shushes her ] I’m sorry. [ in a softer voice ] They’re just about to introduce the Queen – the eighth Queen —

Cindy Williams: — of the Apollo.

Penny Marshall: We have missed all the hand maidens, and the three out-of-town Kings and Queens. [ fanfare blares ] But, here she is – here comes —

[ dissolve to live footage of the Queen walking down the aisle ]

Cindy Williams: The Queen is going to be wearing a floor-length, gold silk gown with chiffon overlay, encrusted and bejeweled — oh, with silver and amber on gold — ohh, she’s beautiful.

Penny Marshall V/O: She’s getting a standing ovation, as well deserved.

Cindy Williams V/O: Yes. With a collar of a combination of plume, made of scented feathers, and a crown, the same as the King.

Together V/O: Hi!!

Penny Marshall V/O: Hello!

Cindy Williams V/O: Isn’t he something? He’s something, isn’t he?

Penny Marshall V/O: What?

Cindy Williams V/O: He’s something.

Penny Marshall V/O: We must stand — we must stand for the Queen.

[ dissolve back to Penny and Cindy standing up and clapping ]

Penny Marshall: There’s a lot of scented feathers coming out of the Queen’s side. Many feathers.

Cindy Williams: You missed a costume made of yak fur, earlier —

Penny Marshall: Say bye. Bye. Goodbye, from Apollo.

[ dissolve back to Buck and Jane ]
