John Oates…..Chris Kattan

[John Oates is sitting in a stairwell.]

John Oates: You might–you might remember this one. (sings) “Private eyes, (claps) they’re watching you. (claps twice)” That was all me. The clapping part. I wasn’t actually the one who uh, clapped, but um, it was my idea. To clap. [Hall & Oates’ “Maneater” starts to play] I didn’t really sing, or play guitar that well. So. (pause) I’m Oates.
