Dennis Miller: Well, Lorne.. it’s been a great six years, but.. it’s time for me to move on.

Dennis Miller: That’s right.

Lorne Michaels: You’re really leaving us, Dennis?

Dennis Miller: Yes. This is it.

Lorne Michaels: Are you sure?

Dennis Miller: Yes, sir.

Lorne Michaels: You’re not going to come back every week to hang out on the set like Lovitz, are you?

Dennis Miller: No. No, I’m really going.

Lorne Michaels: Because that would be pathetic. I mean, the man has no life.

Dennis Miller: This is definitely my last show.

Lorne Michaels: I mean, thank God every now and then he gets a movie..

Dennis Miller: Yeah. Well, I’m serious. This is it for me.

Lorne Michaels: Well.. okay. Is there anything special you’d like to do for your last show?

Dennis Miller: Really?

Lorne Michaels: Anything, Dennis, you name it.

Dennis Miller: Well, you know, I’ve always wanted to say, “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night.”

Lorne Michaels: Well, there’s the camera. Be my guest.

Dennis Miller: “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!

Dennis Miller: Yeah, I’m gonna miss you, too, Lorne. [ they shake hands ]

Lorne Michaels: Well, time to start the show. “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!
