Adam Sandler: Hello. I like that. That was excellent. I’m Adam Sandler, and, uh.. thank you. “Saturday Night Live”. Wow. What a great show. This is unbelievable. All these great people here. You know, a few years ago I used to be on this show, and that was a great time. And, uh.. a lot of people used to be on the show. And I’m sure they had a great time, too. [ pause ] Some people are still on this show.. and I bet they’re having a blast, also. Sketches.. and talking about funny things. A lot of good times. Uhh.. after the shows, uh.. sometimes, I would go with the other people who were on the show to the.. to the after the show parties.. and that was a good time, too.. yeah.. funny things and parties. And all the people.. all the people who have been on the show, that was.. so many people. So many funny things happened. [ awkward pause ] I’m sorry.. I’m not good at talking. Uh.. usually, when I was on the show, I didn’t write what I said. Other guys would write it for me, and that was.. that was probably better than what I’m doing now. So, why don’t I ask three great writers, who wrote a lot of stuff for me, to come bail me out. Uh.. Mr. Jim Downey, Mr. Rob Smigel, Mr. Tim Herlihy.
