[ open on Phil Hartman standing before the audience, dressed in a tuxedo ]
Phil Hartman: Good evening. For too long, “Saturday Night Live” has failed to enrich the cultural and artisitic traditions of this country. Tonight, all that will change, as we present the following peroformance by.. the Opera Man! [ audience applauds wildly ] Indeed! He will be performing a work entitled “Opera Man Comes Within One Number of Winning the New Hampshire Lucky Five Scratch-Off Lottery.” As tonight’s opera begins, Opera Man has purchased a lottery ticket at New Hampshire gas station. He knows that in order to win, the same dollar amount must appear on all five squares of his ticket. Now, ladies and gentlemen, here’s.. Opera Man.
Operaman: “Une millione!”[ scratches ]
“Une millione, il matcho!”[ scratches ]
“Dio mio, une millione!
Es possible Opera Man Millionaro!”
due more scratcho.”
Dio in heaveno
Un more matcho

Opera Man promise
no more masturbato.”
