Michael Caine: Hello!

Peter O’Toole: Michael, I have one question for you: Where in God’s name are we?

Michael Caine: Well, let’s figure it out: a group of people…a TacoBell/Pizza Hut Express sign…and we’re wearing tuxedos. We must behosting a talk show.

Peter O’Toole: Excellent!

[They sit at a table and address the camera.]

Michael Caine: Hello, I’m Michael Caine.

Peter O’Toole: And I’m Peter O’Toole.

Peter O’Toole: Oh, wonderful, we have a caller! What is your name,and where are you from?

Brett: My name’s Brett, I’m from, uh…I’m from behind you. Look, I’mjust going to grab one of these napkins. [He does so and returns tohis table.]

Dyson Toilet

James Dyson….Fred Armisen

[Opens with the trendy inventor with gray hair in a lab. He has a strong English accent.]

James Dyson: Hello there. I’m James Dyson. Inventor of the Dyson Vacuum….the first vacuum that doesn’t use suction.

[Cut to the yellow vacuum with a transparent, plastic, dust bag. Signature is written beside the toilet. James Dyson]

And now I’ve applied the same technology to another household necessity, the common toilet. You see, I was visiting a friend one weekend and after taking a particularly difficult Sunday-morning squat on what I thought was a pretty good commode,…

[Cut to James, pants around his ankles, taking a dump]

I was amazed by the lousy suction.

[Cut to James flushing, he is intrigued by the flush]

I realized there must be something terribly wrong with this design.

[Cut to James wearing protection glasses with his face in the toilet bowl making an examination]

I took the toilet apart and discovered the problem.

[James puts his hand deep in the toilet bowl]

A small amount of my discard was hopelessly clogged.

[James back in the lab]

So I decided to design something better. And a few thousand prototypes later I had it….the Dyson Toilet.

[The toilet is exactly like the vacuum but with a toilet bowl attached to it]

The first toilet that doesn’t use suction.

[Cut to James with his face next to the toilet bowl holding a pan filled with ravioli]

Just look at how it handles this massive load of pumpkin ravioli.

[James deposits the raviolis in the toilet bowl. A hard flush takes the raviolis into the transparent dust bag. Its a mess of water, meat, pasta, tomato sauce all smeared in the see-through bag.]

And those ravioli were quite dense. It’s brilliant, isn’t it?

The Dyson Toilet….the first toilet that doesn’t require plunging.

[A last look at the Dyson Toilet.] [Signature: James Dyson.]

Ashlee Simpson: Exactly, I feel so bad, my band started playing the wrong song, and I didn’t know what to do, so I thought I’d do a hoe-down. I’m sorry!

 Saturday Night Live Transcripts

  Season 30: Episode 3

04c: Jude Law / Ashlee Simpson


Chris Matthews…..Darrell Hammond
Ed Gillespie…..Seth Meyers
Mary Beth Cahill…..Amy Poehler
Zell Miller…..Will Forte

Chris Matthews: Welcome back to “Hardball” I’m Chris Matthews. ….. handling him like Kobe Bryant backstage at the Teen Choice Awards. Has President Bush lost his momentum, and will Kerry capitalize? Here to discuss is chairman of the Republican National Committee, a man who never stops smiling, ever. Ed Gillespie.

Ed Gillespie: [smiling strangely] Chris, thank you so much for having me. You guys are doing a wonderful job here. I gotta say –

Chris Matthews: – Nope! Also joining us, Kerry campaign manager, Mary Beth Cahill.

Mary Beth Cahill: [eyes sticking out] Great to be here, Chris.

Chris Matthews: Good god, Cahill. I haven’t seen eyes like that since Jim Henson glued ’em to a sock. Ed Gillespie, let’s start with you. How does Bush plan to rebound from his lackluster performance in these debates?

Ed Gillespie: Simple, Chris. By staying on message. And that message is that George Bush is the only candidate who can win the war on terror. I don’t know if you’ve seen our new ad, but terrorist are like wolves. I think people want a president, like George Bush, who will strip himself to the waste, run full speed into the forest, and kill the wolves with his bare hands. Sure, John Kerry like to play dress up in camouflage and shoot geese, but while he’s out hunting geese, there’s a wolf in your house, eating your baby.

Chris Matthews: That’s a pretty impressive fear mongering, Gillespie. Between the war mongering in Iraq and the fear mongering here at home, how muchmongering do you have left? Ha! Mary Beth Cahill, John Kerry has taken some eatin the past week from mentioning the vice-president’s daughter’s a lesbian. Will that remark end up hurting Kerry come November 2nd?

Mary Beth Cahill: Chris, Mary Cheney is an outspoken lesbian. So as far as we’re concerned, she’s fair game. We shouldn’t have to tiptoe around that fact anymore than we should tiptoe around the fact that her father, Dick Cheney, is slightly overweight. We’re not telling anyone anything they don’t already know. Mary Cheney is a hardcore carpet cleaner. … And her dad is a big ol’ fatty boombalatty.

Chris Matthews: Good god. Ed Gillespie, recent polls show Senator Kerry is gaining as much as 11 points over the coarse of the last month. Are youconcerned?

Ed Gillespie: Golly, Chris. I don’t know what polls you’re looking at. According to everyone I’ve talked to at the Republican National Committee, Bush is going to win anywhere from 97 to 100% of the popular vote. I’m not trying to spin you there, Chris. It’s going really good.

Chris Matthews: You gotta be kidding me, Gillespie. You’re spinning harder than George Bush’s college dorm room after nicke-de-bel-bleh-[mumbling] beer night! Mary Beth Cahill, how are the polls effecting John Kerry now that we’re approaching the home stretch?

Mary Beth Cahill: Chris, we don’t run our campaign according to the latest polls, we prefer to stick to the issues that affect the American people. Issues like the fact that our vice-president’s daughter is a stone-cold lesbone. Or that she may, from time to time, take a vacation diving for muff off the coast of “dyke”-achusetts. Or that she wakes up early in the morning, looks over at her life partner, and lovingly says “time to bang the donut!”

[Cahill stares at camera with wide open eyes, Chris looks confused]

Chris Matthews: Correct me if I’m wrong, but we’re still talking about apresidential election right?

Mary Beth Cahill: I’m not sure anymore, Chris.

Chris Matthews: Joining us now is someone who might be able to shed some light on how Bush can regain some of that post-convention momentum. Key note speaker at the Republican National Convention and a guy who would have chilled the crowd at the Nuremberg rallies, democratic senator, Zell Miller.

Zell Miller: [shouting hysterically] It’s good to be here, Chris!!!

Chris Matthews: Senator Miller, some have said that your appearance at the convention may have backfired for the president, saying you came off as angry. How do you respond to that?

Zell Miller: You know what makes me angry, Chris?!! Sadaam Hussein!!! Osama Bin Laden makes me angry!!! John Kerry makes me angry with his $200 haircuts, his fancy ketchup wife, and his Ben Frank-o’s!!! I don’t want my president to be some liberal senator from Massachusetts. I want a president who protects my family with big old bombs and airplanes and spaceships!!! John Kerry wants to give our soldiers spitballs Chris!!! SPITBALLS!!!

Chris Matthews: You don’t seriously believe that, Senator Miller?

Zell Miller: What’d you say to me, boy?!!

Chris Matthews: I said you can’t honestly suggest that Senator Kerry would arm our troops with spitballs?

Zell Miller: It was a metaphor, Chris!!! I’ll tell you what, I wish we was in the days where you could still challenge a man to a duel!!! I’d come down there and slap the yellow off of that head of yours!!!

Chris Matthews: All right. Before Zell Miller gets down here and murders me, final thoughts. Smiley?

[Gillespie smiling excitedly]

Ed Gillespie: Just polled myself. Looks like 100% of me is going to vote for Bush.

Chris Matthews: No kidding. Googly eyes?

[Cahill stares around with eyes wide open]

Mary Beth Cahill: All this talk about polls, you know whose never been poled in her life?? Mary Cheney!

Chris Matthews: Yico rooney. Yosemite Sam?

[Miller pulls out two shotguns]

Zell Miller: The pistols and I, Matthews!!! You and me!!! 20 paces!! YOU’RE A DEAD MAN!!!

Chris Matthews: When we come back, Senator Miller is going to try to shoot me, and we’ll see if Mary Beth Cahill’s eyes pop out of her head, but first … “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”

…Maya Rudolph
…Ashlee Simpson

Jude: Thank you. Thank you very much. It’s wonderful to be here in New York City. Thank you! Alot of you may know me from my filmwork. Perhaps from the ( counts on his fingers) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 films Ihave coming out right now. But you know I actually started in the theatre. And hosting this show reminds me of that time in my life. When everyone would work very long hours, stay up nights rehearsing until everything was just right. Because we loved it so much. I remember my first opening night in a reperatory theatre. I was playing Happy in “Death of a Salesman,” at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leagues. I went to the theatre very early that night. I remember sitting in my tiny dressing room, with a bare lightbulb hanging from the ceiling, and even though it smelled like cigarettes and stale beer I had never been happier. As I was putting on my makeup, I looked in the mirror- I can remember thi so clearly- I looked in the mirror, and I thought “I am so good looking.” I mean look at this face. This face does not belong in a crappy little theatre in Leagues. (is handed a microphone). Honestly. [sings] “I took one look in the mirror, and I could clearly see that there was one perfect thing in it, and that thing was me.” You know people think it’s easy going through life looking like this. It is. It’s easy. [sings] “I don’t need to really act, I don’t need a big heart, I don’t need to be nice, I don’t need to be smart.” I am, that’s just a bonus. Ladies.

(Rachel, Tina, Amy, and Maya enter onstage.)

Girls: [singing]“He’s the most beautiful man we ever saw.
In some states that smile’s against the law.”

Rachel: I want to be against the law – Jude Law, that is.

Girls: [singing]“We don’t meant to be crude,
but when we’re in the mood,
the one man we think of is Jude.”

Rachel: Thinking of Jude.

Tina: Totally nude.

Rachel: About to be screw-

Jude: Alright.
[sings]“I’ve made women swoon, and Matt Damon cry,
made Nicole Kidman melt when she gazed in my eyes.
My looks don’t fit the common belief,
that Englishmen have big ears and, bad teeth.”

Girls [singing] “He’s the most beautiful man in the world.”

Jude: You know when you’re this good looking people think you’re gay. I’m just English. I’m so good looking I don’t even need to be funny to make people laugh. Watch this. Tina?

Tina: What is it, Jude?

Jude: What’s that over there? (points offstage)

(Tina looks then looks back at Jude)

Jude: Made you look.

Tina: Ha ha ha ha ha ha, good one!

Jude: See what I mean?

Tina: That is so funny, and I’m a professional comedian.

Jude: It’s so easy. No one even ever corrects me. Everyone, tonight’s musical guest, Jessica Simpson!

Ashlee: (comes onstage) Actually it’s- you can call me Jessica.

Jude: Maya? Maya, have you met Jessica?

Maya: (Shakes Ashlee’s hand) Hi Jessica.

Ashlee: Actually it’s Ashlee.

Jude: Ashlee?

Ashlee: Ashlee, yeah.

Jude: Oh, I’m so sorry.

Maya: Oh, it’s okay.

Ashlee: It’s totally okay.

(Ashlee, Maya, and Amy all talk at the same time. It’s hard to tell what each one is saying.)

Amy: I love you!

Jude: [sings] “I’m just a regular guy.”

Girls: [singing] “No you’re more than okay.”

Maya: [singing] “I’d like to get to know you in a big way.”

Girls: [singing]“We don’t mean to be rude,
but we can conclude,
that we’re in the mood for a man named,
(start to make a circle around Jude)
na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Hey Jude!”

Jude: [sings] “Jude, Jude, Jude, Jude, Jude, Wow!” (girls still singing in the background) Thank you very much. ASHLEE Simpson is here. Stick around. We’ll be right back.

“The Apprentice” Promo

Donald Trump…..Darrell Hamond
Director’s Voice…..Seth Meyers

[ open on Halloween background foliage ]

Director’s Voice: Okay. Uh.. Mr. Trump. If you could just step on your mark?

[ Donald Trump, dressed as Dracula, complete with black cape and fake fangs, over his usual business suit, steps in front of the background foliage ]

Director’s Voice: Did you, uh.. did you get a chance to see the script?

Donald Trump: [ with authority ] Here’s how I want this commercial to go: I’m gonna say the words from the script in the camera, while you film it. Then, you’re gonna edit to exactly thirty seconds, which is gonna be hard, ’cause there’s gonna be a lot of good stuff!

Director’s Voice: Yeah, that’s how we usually do it.

Donald Trump: Then, you’re gonna air it! And it’s gonna get the highest ratings of any promo in the history of NBC, not to mention the history of television!

Director’s Voice: Promos actually don’t get ratings, so —

Donald Trump: Let’s do this!

Director’s Voice: Okay. Here we go. In 5.. 4.. 3.. 2..

[ camera zooms close on Trump, as a logo for “The Apprentice” appears on the bottom left corner of the screen. Trump stands motionless. ]

Director’s Voice: Um.. Mr. Trump, is something wrong?

[ logo dissolves ]

Donald Trump: You didn’t say “1”.

Director’s Voice: [ light chuckle ] Oh, yeah.. oh.. sorry, we don’t usually say “1”, because you may hear it on the tape.

Donald Trump: Alright, here’s what you’re gonna do: I want you to count backwards from 5, and when you get to 1, you won’t say it, and that way you won’t hear it on the tape. Then, you’ll point to me, and then I’ll begin saying my lines. And then, you will take what we just recorded —

Director’s Voice: Yes! We get it. Good. Thank you. In 5.. 4.. 3.. 2 —

[ camera zooms close on Trump ]

Donald Trump: 1!

[ logo appears ]

Donald Trump: [ reading stiffly from the cue cards ] “Hello, this is The Donald from Trumpsylvania, telling you to watch this week’s special Halloween episode of “The Apprentice”. These contestants are gonna be shaking in their suits, because, unlike Frankenstein, I am not afraid of fire – ing – any of them! Moo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo, ha, ha-ha, ha!” [ lifts his cape up over his shoulders ] That was great.

Director’s Voice: Um.. Mr. Trump, we should probably do that again.

Donald Trump: I think we should do it again. I didn’t point when I said “The Apprentice.”

Director’s Voice: Okay. So, let’s try it again. And, in the end, it’s sort of like an evil villain luag,h like

Donald Trump: Alright, you just watch what I do. I think you’ll find it very professional.

Director’s Voice: Great. Here we go. In 5.. 4.. 3.. 2 —

[ camera zooms close on Trump ]

Donald Trump: 1!

[ logo appears ]

Donald Trump: “Hello, this is The Donald from Trumpsylvania — and you’ve already got this part on tape, so you can splice it, and “Moo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo, hey, hey, hey. [ points ] “The Apprentice!””

[ logo dissolves ]

Director’s Voice: Umm.. Mr. Trump, we can’t really splice that middle part, so we’re gonna have to do it again.

Donald Trump: Okay, but this time I’m gonna freestyle it, like I did in that Visa commercial, which, by the way, got tremendous ratings, and so will this promo.

Director’s Voice: Yeah, but, once again, promos don’t get ratings, so —

Donald Trump: [ as camera zooms on him ] And 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. [ points to himself ] 1!

[ logo appears ]

Donald Trump: “Hello, this is Count Trumpula. I vant to suck your blood.. but I von’t, if you vatch “The Apprentice” this veek. Moo-hoo! Moo-hoo-hoo! Moo-hoo-hoo-hoo!” [ throws cape over his shoulder again, then lowers his arm ] And then, right here, I’m gonna stand.

Director’s Voice: [ less than enthusiastic ] Great.
