George Hanson: Why’d you go off and leave me like that, man!

Billy: George, man, I thought you were dead, man!

Barbara…..Victoria Jackson
Janet…..Jan Hooks
Marvin Hill…..Dana Carvey

Announcer: It’s time for another episode of “Reverend DwightHenderson: World’s Meanest Methodist Minister”.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ dictating a letter to his Secretary ] “My Dear Mrs. Randall: Regarding your invitation for Easter dinner – in someithng akin to a nightmare, I imagine myself seated with you and your.. grotesque family, suffering through an evening of what passes for conversation in your household. And the horror of that image compels me to shun your home, Madam, as I would some kind of dread skin disease.” Mmm.. “Yours, with best wishes for this holiday season.. blah, blah, blah.. Reverend Dwight Henderson.” Oh, and uh.. “P.S. Enjoy your turkey and Cheese Whiz.”

Secretary: I’ll get this in the mail today, Reverend.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ sighing ] Oh, Rose.. I’m sodesperately tired. Why don’t we call it a day?

Secretary: But, Reverend, it isn’t noon yet, and there’s some people waiting to see you, they’ve been waiting all morning.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Honestly, can there be a job on earth more difficult than mine? Show them in.

Secretary: [ goes to the door and lets a couple enter the Reverend’s office ] Uh, Reverend, these are the Marchinsons – Paul and Barbara.

Barbara: Morning, Reverend.

Paul: Morning, Reverend.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ not interested in the formalities ] Yes, yes.. you have a problem of some kind?

Paul: Uh, yes, Reverend.. [ fidgety ] Barbara and I were, weremarried.. uh.. two years ago.. uh.. and lately.. lately..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Please. Get on with it.

Barbara: Uh, Reverend, our marriage has notbeen going on too well lately.. and before we went into a professional counselor, we thought we would ask you for your advice.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Madam, as a minister of the gospel, of course I recognize the importance of the institution of holy matrimony. At the same time, however, I must tell you that it simply is not a subject which interests me. Next! Next!

[ the Marchinsons are marched out, as the next member of the congregation is brought in ]

Secretary: Reverend, this is Janet Whitmeer..

Janet: Good morning, Reverend!

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Yes?

Janet: Uh, Reverend.. I live alone with my mother..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Yes?

Janet: And, uh.. she’s an invalid, and during the day I have to leave to go to work..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ annoyed ] I trust this isleading somewhere..?

Janet: Well.. Reverend, she has a heart condition, and I worry if something should happen.. [ Reverend Henderson mimes playing the violin in sarcasm ] ..while I’m not there. And so I was wondering if perhaps someone from the parish could just drop by and check up on her from time to time?

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ mocking ] Someone? Don’t you mean “Reverend Henderson”? Sure, why spend money on a nurse. We’ll get Reverend Henderson to do it for free! Sure! He’s happy to spend his days running all over town entertaining all our local shut-ins! He’s got nothing better to do!

Janet: [ aghast ] Reverend, I didn’t mean you.. I.. I..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ upset ] Oh, away with you!

[ Janet is pushed outside, and the next member of the congregation enters ]

Secretary: Marvin Hill.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ perturbed ] Yes..

Marvin Hill: [ carrying Easter basket ] Good morning, Reverend. I’m not here on account of any problem.. although, things haven’t been going too well for us since I got laid off. But I just came by to wish you a Happy Easter, and to drop off this Easter basket that the wife made..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ miffed at the annoying gesture ]Puh-leeeeze!

Marvin Hill: ..and to say hello from Joan and myself.. well, actually, Joan.. uh..

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ waves him off ] Dismissed! [ walks away ]

Marvin Hill: Thank you. Thanks a lot. Thank you. [ exits ]

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ back at his desk ] Rose, you know it’s been a few weeks since we’ve gone over the accounts for the Sundaycollections.

Secretary: Well, Reverend, there really hasn’t been much to count.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: I see. Well, how much was turned in?

Secretary: Well, actually, Reverend, nothing was turned in. As a matter of fact, nothing has been turned in for the last three Sundays. I think it may be part of an organized protest.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ shocked and disturbed ] I’m afraidyou’ve lost me! A protest against what?

Secretary: Reverend Henderson, forgive my bluntness, but you should be aware that you are not liked by some members of the parish.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: Well, of course. They’re cattle!

Secretary: Well, Reverend, the fact is that a great many people find your tone sort of off-putting. The Methodists in this community are used to a more conventional style ministry.. you know, someone who’s a lot more polite, and not such a.. butthole.

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ takes it in ] I see. Tell me, Rose.. why do you work for me? You know, I don’t pay you.

Secretary: Because.. [ pause ] I love you!

Reverend Dwight Henderson: [ absorbs the sudden information ]Puh-leeeeze! Spare me!

John Lithgow’s Monologue

John Lithgow’s Monologue

…..John Lithgow

John Lithgow: Thank you, thank you, thank you very much! I’m really delighted to be back on “Saturday Night Live” this year, I really am! And, besides, this time I have a kind of special reason to be pleased.

I just found out, every year, “Saturday Night Live” chooses just one single broadcast to the University of Maryland School of Communications for their consideration for the prestigious Robert Benchley Award for television humanity. And this is so great! I probably shouldn’t be telling you this.. but after a really great dress rehearsal, the producer came into my dressing room, a big smile on his face, and he said, “John, this is it. I think we got the Benchley winner!” [ nervous ] I’m so flattered! And I’m so moved! I mean, of all the shows they’ve done so far this year, he picks.. mine! I mean, what a responsibility. Frankly, I’m a little scared. Not only do we have to do a great show, but.. a perfect show.. we’ve worked so hard this week, I just know it’s gonna pay off!

[ suddenly, the boom mike appears just to the right of John’s head ] [ worried ] Is that the boom? Uh.. uh.. was the boom in that shot? Did they see the boom at home? [ pause ] Well, that’s great! Terrific! So much for perfection. [ fumed ] Well, there goes the award-winning John Lithgow show. I guess dress rehearsal was just an accodent for some of us! Thank you, audio people! Thank you so much! [ angry ] Oh, what’s the use of going on!

Director’s Voice: John.. John.. I think you’re overreacting.

John Lithgow: Oh, fine! Fine! I’m overreacting! Let’s blame the whole thing on John! He’ll be gone tomorrow! It’s John’s fault we lost the coveted Benchley Award! Well, let me tell you something, Bucko! I on’t need Benchley’s puny ltitle award! [ starts to break down ] Oh.. oh, God.. I knew it.. I knew it.. I’m having an anxiety attack.. Does anyone have a paper bag..?

[ Director Joe Disco hands John a paper bag, which he immediately begins to breathe into rapidly ]

It’s okay.. I’ve done this before.. [ catches his breath ] I’m okay. I-I’m.. better. Anyway.. stick around. We’ve got a great show.. [ awkward pause ] Flawed, but great. A good show. It’s not an award show, but you might like it. Anita Baker is here, anyway.

    [ open on close-up of Deceased’s face, as he reflects on his death ]

    Deceased: So, suddenly I was looking down at my own body, lying there on the stretcher. And there was no pain, no fear, only peace. And I began to float through a dark tunnel, toward a dazzling light. And I distinctly heard one of the doctors say, “Turn off the respirator, we’ve lost him.”

    [ screen widens to reveal the Deceased sitting next to an Angel in Heaven ]

    Angel: Yeah.. well.. doctors can’t always be wrong, huh?

    Deceased: So, I guess the idea is, I’m dead, huh?

    Angel: Yeah. Uh-huh.

    Deceased: O-kay.. How’d it happen?

    Angel: Well.. it actually started with some rough-housing.

    Deceased: No.

    Angel: Yep. You were playing football in the house, and you fell down and broke your neck.

    Deceased: [ intrigued ] I actually broke my neck rough-housing? My mom was right! [ grins ] So, you’re obviously a saint?

    Angel: Yeah.. yeah.

    Deceased: Which one?

    Angel: Uh.. you wouldn’t have heard of me..

    Deceased: No, really! Come on, which one?

    Angel: [ sighs ] Saint Cornelius. See, I told you.

    Deceased: So, you know everything about me, my whole life, right?

    Angel: Yeah.

    Deceased: Whoa! Uh.. what was the biggest mistake I ever made?

    Angel: Well.. you left the church..

    Deceased: No, no.. I meant, like, in earthly terms.

    Angel: Oh. Um.. well, one time you were walking on the beach in Bermuda, and you walked right over a treasure chest. You would have only had to have dug, maybe four of five inches, it would have been worth $40 million.

    Deceased: [ disappointed ] Aw, really?!

    Angel: Hey, hey, relax.. it’s over! It doesn’t matter up here.

    Deceased: Alright. Just out of curiosity, what career was I really suited for? I know it wasn’t selling copiers.

    Angel: Well, uh.. believe it or not, you were ideally suited to be the President of the United States.

    Deceased: [ aghast ] Oh, no, you’re kidding! Me, the President! [ laughs ] I really screwed up!

    Angel: Hey, hey, don’t worry about it, it’s no big deal. Don’t worry.

    Deceased: Okay. Tell me this: which of the girls I knew secretly had a crush on me?

    Angel: Well.. there was Denise Baker..

    Deceased: Oh, yeah?

    Angel: ..Patty Patronik..

    Deceased: Oh, right..

    Angel: .. and, uh.. Stephanie Zimmer.

    Deceased: Oh. Uh-huh. No one else?

    Angel: No.

    Deceased: Well. Let’s see.. what’s the grossest thing I ever ate?

    Angel: You don’t want to know.

    Deceased: Oh. Okay. What about the 200th grossest thing?

    Angel: Okay.. that would be some butterscotch pudding that had a dead earwig in it.

    Deceased: [ grimaces ] Oh, gross! You mean I never tasted it!

    Angel: Well, you made this very funny face.. but you were watching a football game on TV at the time..

    Deceased: This is so wild! So, you know everything? Alright.. alright.. who would have won between Secreatariat and Man-Of-War?

    Angel: Man-Of-War.

    Deceased: Hmm.. really? What kind of sit-ups are better – bent-knee, or straight-knee?

    Angel: Straight.

    Deceased: I knew it! That gym teacher was such an idiot!

    Angel: Yeah.. he was.

    Deceased: Okay.. okay.. which one’s better: Beatles or Stones?

    Angel: Beatles.

    Deceased: Ah-ha! Dogs or cats?

    Angel: Dogs.

    Deceased: Smooth or chunky?

    Angel: Chunky.

    Deceased: Huh? [ thinking ] Okay, okay, I got one! Which one wins: the irresistable force, or the immovable object?

    Angel: The irresistable force.

    Deceased: Huh.. interesting. Okay. Of the following people, which ,if any, are still alive: Elvis, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hoffa, Andy Kaufman, or Hitler.

    Angel: Uh.. that’d be Jim Morrison and Hitler.

    Deceased: [ shocked ] Hitler?!

    Angel: Hey, don’t worry. We’re really gonna nail him.

    Deceased: Boy.. this is so weird! I don’t even know what to ask.. okay – Bruce Willis. I mean, that guy, he had to make a deal with the devil, right?

    Angel: Yeah.

    Deceased: I knew it! I knew it! Okay, who else? Sugar Ray Leonard?

    Angel: Yeah.

    Deceased: Yeah! Who else?

    Angel: Oh, there’s so many..

    Deceased: Alright.. alright.. Hey! What is the one thing that would surprise me the most if I knew it?

    Angel: [ laughs ] You couldn’t handle it.

    Deceased: Alright, okay, okay.. How about the 368th most surprising fact?

    Angel: Professional wrestling is real.

    Deceased: [ surprised ] What’s the weirdest thing that causes cancer?

    Angel: Uh.. looking at goldfish.

    Deceased: Whoa-oa! Why did they change the formula for Coke?

    Angel: [ dramatic pause ] No one knows.

    Deceased: Hmm.. What happened to that $50 bill I lost at graduation?

    Angel: You didn’t lose it – your uncle stole it.

    Deceased: Wha..? [ laughs ] This is the greatest thing that ever happened! I love this!

    Angel: Well, good, I’m glad! Hey, come on, let’s go, I want to show you around..

    John Bosley: No way. The public just thinks they’re a string ofunrelated events. Meanwhile, you’ve knocked out three of the frontrunners. I know Charlie will be very happy about that. [ goes to the phone ] Isn’t that right, Charlie?

    Ted Kennedy: [ on the phone in his office, while a woman pours him beer ] Oh that’s for sure. I can’t imagine three more glamouous salvagers than Fawn, Donna, and Jessica.

    John Bosley: Well project Phoenix is right on schedule, Charlie.

    Ted Kennedy: Yes, now let’s proceed toward our target, the national convention in Atlanta.

    Jessica Hahn: Hey Charlie, why did I have to do that thing with Muskie?

    Angels: Ewww!

    Jessica Hahn: And he wasn’t even running!

    Angels: Ewww!

    Ted Kennedy: Well, my apologies, Jessica. That was just a clerical error.

    Jessica Hahn: Oh.

    Ted Kennedy: [ woman in office is now massaging him ] Now, angels, if I may direct your attention to the center court area. [ Chase Steele enters through the doorway ] Say hello to our newest angel, Chase Steele.

    Jessica Hahn: Ooh la laa!

    [ Jessica, Fawn, and Donna go to Chase ]

    Ted Kennedy: Chase, you’ll be relieved to hear I’m taking you off Jack Kemp. Now how about a progress report on Operation Pineapple?

    Chase Steele: Well, Senator Dole’s a pretty straight arrow. So I’m going after his wife, Secretary of Transportation. I have a hunch she’ll not mind if I inspect her cargo. [ kisses Jessica, as Donna and Fawn giggle ]

    Ted Kennedy: All right, but be careful. In my experience, Republican women are harder to open than a liquor store in Nebraska.

    Chase Steele: Charlie, you want Liz Dole, you got her. Just get the reporters there. Twenty minutes alone with me on the New Jersey turnpike, she’ll be underneath the bridge with her dress on up over her head, screaming, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
