Voice of Director: Uh, Miss Stone, there’s no smoking during the monologue.
Sharon Stone: [ laughs ] What are you gonna do, Davey, take me off the air? We’re live. [ smokes ] You know.. I had a great week. I like working with these guys. They give me a lot of laughs. I love to laugh. It’s nice. It sends ripples of pleasure through my body..[ cut to Chris Farley watching from offstage, excitement shining from his face ]
Leaving here is gonna be sad.. because I’ll miss all the pleasure they gave me..[ cut to Lorne Michaels watching from offstage, excitement shining from his face ]

But not that much. I’m not gonna miss them. The stagehands weren’t that funny..[ cut to the stagehands watching unhappily from offstage ]
