[ open on Lorne Michaels pouring a cup of coffee backstage, as Dennis Miller walks up ]
Dennis Miller: Well, Lorne.. it’s been a great six years, but.. it’s time for me to move on.
Lorne Michaels: Is this really your last show?
Dennis Miller: That’s right.
Lorne Michaels: You’re really leaving us, Dennis?
Dennis Miller: Yes. This is it.
Lorne Michaels: Are you sure?
Dennis Miller: Yes, sir.
Lorne Michaels: You’re not going to come back every week to hang out on the set like Lovitz, are you?
Dennis Miller: No. No, I’m really going.
Lorne Michaels: Because that would be pathetic. I mean, the man has no life.
Dennis Miller: This is definitely my last show.
Lorne Michaels: I mean, thank God every now and then he gets a movie..
Dennis Miller: Yeah. Well, I’m serious. This is it for me.
Lorne Michaels: Well.. okay. Is there anything special you’d like to do for your last show?
Dennis Miller: Really?
Lorne Michaels: Anything, Dennis, you name it.
Dennis Miller: Well, you know, I’ve always wanted to say, “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night.”
Lorne Michaels: Well, there’s the camera. Be my guest.
Dennis Miller: “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!“
[ the show doesn’t start ]
Lorne Michaels: [ pats Dennis’ back ] That was great. Uh, well.. we’re gonna miss you, Dennis.
Dennis Miller: Yeah, I’m gonna miss you, too, Lorne. [ they shake hands ]
Lorne Michaels: Well, time to start the show. “Live, from New York, it’s Saturday Night!“
