Chevy Chase’s Monologue

…..Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase: Thank you very much. It’s great to be back here. You know, tonight is just four days short of being 20 years to the day that I opened the first show by saying, “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night.” It holds a lot of memories for me.. and I’m nostalgic. There are a lot of ghosts in this studio. [ reflecting ] I can remember that first night, when I was over there on Stage 3 with John and Michael O’Donoghue.. we were getting ready to do the opening, and I remember Gilda was standing over here.. Jane.. and Danny and Garrett were over there, and, uh.. Laraine was in her costume, and it was just unbelievable. I was backstage over here. And, uh.. [ removes his glasses ] ..My heart was pounding, and I remember thinking at that moment, “This is a dream come true.” It was a great, great time.. And I remember the song.. that wonderful song, “When You Wish Upon a Star”.. uh.. as sung by Jiminy Cricket..

[ puts on his Jiminy Cricket face and sings ]“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.”

Thank you! Thank you very much! We’ve got a great show for you tonight, Lisa Loeb is here, and we’ll be right back!
