Robert Downey, Jr.’s Monologue

…..Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr.: Thank you very much. Good evening. Wow, it’s great to be back here on “Saturday Night Live”. I was actually a cast member on the show ten years ago, and, in case you’re wondering why I’m hosting, well, actually, I’ve been invited back as part of their “Distinguished Alumni” series. Anyway, things are good with me.. you know, basically just been the same old same old. I did have a really interesting summer, though. In fact, I’ve brought some slides of what I did on my summer vacation. Would you like to see them?

Well, it wouldn’t be Summer without hosting a barbecue..

That guy works me hard, he really does. But it’s worth it when you take off your shirt at the beach, which is where I was going in this next picture..

Yeah, you know.. you go with your buddies in the car pool lane, it’s sweet. And here’s me at Disney Land..

This next one’s of me when I stayed at this terrific guest house in Malibu..

It’s actually two doors down from my own house. But, you know.. anyway..

Whoops! how’d that get in there? That’s from Kelsey Grammar’s summer vacation.

And finally what would summer be without a hot summer romance?
