A Message From Tony Vallencourt
Tony Vallencourt…..Adam Sandler
FADE IN:[ CELTICS TITLE CARD – A MESSAGE FROM TONY VALLENCOURT. ]
Tony Vallencourt (V/O): And now a message from lifelong Boston resident andwicked huge Celtics fan, Tony Vallencourt.[ INT. DMV OFFICE DESK – DAY ] [ TONY VALLENCOURT, a man in his late 20’s wearing a mullet and plaidshirt, sits at a desk holding a Budweiser. ]
Tony Vallencourt: Hey there! I’m Tony Vallencourt, speaking here from mysister’s desk at the DMV branch near Faneuil Hall in Boston. As you are nodoubt aware, the Celtics played their last game ever in the historicBoston Garden. Now the Garden is history and all I have left are a fewwicked awesome memories.
Like the time Tommy Gilbody and me were at the Lakers game in September1984. We were sitting in two of the famous Garden’s “obstructed view”seats, under the balcony and behind a wicked huge “po-st”. We could seeone basket and the lower half of the scoreboard, but not much else. Andthe 14 shots of pre-game Bacardi weren’t making things any clearer.
The temperature outside was 40 below zero and the Garden’s heating system,as usual, was “in the crapper”. To stay warm, my buddy and I beat theliving hell out of two older ladies who were cheering for the Lakers.”We’re wife and mothers of the other players”, they cried, as we laid intothem hardcore with a few pairs of numchucks. I swear to God, at one point,Robert Parrish – the Chief himself – looked up to me and screamed, “Heypsycho! You’re ruining the game! Get him out of the Garden!” The securityguards, always quick to heed the Chief’s instructions, tossed my arseright out onto Beacon Street.
As I laid on the concrete, I thought of one word — pisser. Then there wasthe time my buddy Kevin Sheehan got my playoff seats in Section 127, wherethe floor sinks down and all the rats live. They were there! They were thesize of dogs, pally! By halftime, I had been bitten by so many rodents, Iwas hallucinating. I was wicked-wicked-pisser!
For a while, I imagined I could actually see the court; which of course,was completely hidden behind a collapsed wall and a humungous fat guy! Wewere torn. Or how about the Celtics versus Sixers 1981? Our seats were infabled Section 268 — inside the boiler room. Down a step ladder andbehind yet another wicked huge post. What a game!
In the first quarter, Julius Irving had actually blocked one of LarryBird’s jump shots with his giant afro. So at halftime, my buddy Fitzy andI, snuck into the Sixers locker room and shaved Dr. J’s head bald. Pisser?I think so, pal.
On our way back to our seats, we spotted those same old ladies from theLakers game and shaved their heads too! Making the evening even morepisser! If such a thing is possible…
The Boston Garden. There’s so much I’ll miss. Like the time we stole MosesMalone’s size 35 sneaker and used it as a canoe on the Charles River. Orthe time we beat up that organ player for not knowing the song “FreezeFrame” by the great J. Geils Band.
So tonight people of Boston, drink an entire pony keg in honor of theGarden. And in the words of Larry Bird, “The McChicken sandwich is awicked pisser of a sandwich. And, Live, from New York, it’s SaturdayNight!”

David Duchovny: Well, thanks.
Ellen Cleghorne: It’s just that, you know, a lot of weird things have been going on here?
David Duchovny: What do you mean, weird?
Ellen Cleghorne: Um.. like.. ohhhh.. I don’t know. People vanishing, alien apparitions, Deion Sanders hosting. That kind of weird.
David Duchovny: Uh, Ellen, I really should be getting ready for the show —[ a loud scream is heard offscreen ]
David Duchovny: What was that?
Ellen Cleghorne: Oh, come on![ Ellen and Duchovny run out of his dressing room, and discover Molly Shannon in the hall ]
David Duchovny: Molly! Molly, what happened?
Molly Shannon: I don’t know..! I was just.. I was just grabbing a snack before the show, and, then all of a sudden, it was here..!
David Duchovny: What? What was here?
Molly Shannon: It was hairy.. oh God, it was horrible!
David Duchovny: [ to Ellen ] Get her out of here, get her out of here.[ Ellen leads Molly down the hall ]
David Spade: David. Check this out.
David Duchovny: What have you got, Spade?[ they crouch on the floor over a huge footprint ]
David Spade: Some sort of footprint.
David Duchovny: That’s too big to be a human footprint. It must be some kind of animal. Get a plaster cast made of that.
David Spade: Right, I’ll.. take it to my lab.[ Duchovny stands and passes Jay Mohr, Morwenna Banks and Adam Sandler leaning against the snack table ]
David Duchovny: What about any of you? Any of you see anything?
Adam Sandler: Uh-uh.

Kevin Nealon: Psst! David! Over here!
David Duchovny: What is it, Kevin?
Kevin Nealon: David, I’ve been a cast member on this show for nine years, and I’ve seen a lot of strange things, and tonight’s my last show.
David Duchovny: Kevin, does any of this have a point?
Kevin Nealon: No. I just wanted to remind people tonight’s my last show.
David Duchovny: Alright.
Kevin Nealon: You know, maybe.. maybe people could throw me a party.
David Duchovny: Kevin, I —
Kevin Nealon: Just keep it simple. Maybe make it a surprise party, or something.
David Duchovny: Hey, Kevin —
Kevin Nealon: You ever hear of the Beast Man of Studio 8-H?
David Duchovny: Beast Man? What Beast Man?
Kevin Nealon: Well, some of the older guys on the crew tell this story about this horrible man-beast who lives in the studio, back behind all the sets.
David Duchovny: You sure you’re not talking about the ghost of John Belushi?
Kevin Nealon: No, he haunts the 17th floor.
David Duchovny: What about the ghost of Joe Piscopo?
Kevin Nealon: Joe Piscopo isn’t dead.
David Duchovny: Oh, right, right, he’s alive..
Kevin Nealon: Look, David, whatever happens – trust no one.
David Duchovny: Well, Kevin, if I can’t trust anyone, how can I trust you?
Kevin Nealon: Look, I gotta get ready for my surprise party. Be careful.[ Kevin exits down the hall ]
David Duchovny: [ to himself ] I’m gonna go talk to Lorne.[ dissolve to the eerie presence of Lorne Michael’s office, dramatic music surrounds the atmosphere ] [ Duchovny enters ]
David Duchovny: Lorne? Can I have a word with you?
Lorne Michaels: Come in, David.
David Duchovny: You set me up, didn’t you, Lorne? That’s why you wanted me to host the show. Nobody here’s even heard of “The X-Files”, but you want me to take car of your Beast Man problem. Well, I won’t do it! I won’t do your dirty work![ Michael McKean creeps out from behind the shadows ]
Michael McKean: Don’t be silly, Mr. Duchovny. You’ve wanted to host the show ever since you became an actor. Now oyu have your chance. So you’ll catch the Beast Man for us. And you’ll do our little sketches, and you’ll wear our silly costumes. Because it’s all a game, Mr. Duchovny. And, right now, you’re holding the losing hand. Isn’t that right, Lorne?
Lorne Michaels: Yes, sir![ Michael McKean chuckles as Duchovny exits Lorne’s office ]
Michael McKean: Be seeing you again, Mr. Duchovny. [ extinguishes his cigarette on Lorne’s desk ] [ dissolve to Duchovny explaining his plan of action to Mark McKinney ]
David Duchovny: Well, I put some fresh cookies out, so maybe the Beast Man will —[ a loud, girlish scream is heard offscreen ] [ Mark McKinney ducks for cover, as Duchovny runs toward the scream he assumes to be Molly Shannon ]
David Duchovny: Molly! Molly, did you see it again?
Molly Shannon: Oh. No, actually, that wasn’t me screaming. It was Chris.
Chris Elliot: Yeah, it was.. me screaming. I’m sorry, my voice gets a little high when I get scared. Thank you very much, Molly!
David Duchovny: That’s okay, Chris.
Chris Elliot: Well.. I.. she..
David Duchovny: What did you see?
Chris Elliot: Well, it was the Beast Man. I was eating, and he just came by, he grabbed my food.. and he went off, and —[ something resembling the Beast Man casually walks down the far hall, causing Chris Elliot to scream like a little girl again ]
Chris Elliot: Auuugghhhh!! There he is!![ Duchovny runs down the hall ]
David Duchovny: Beast Man! Beast Man, don’t be afraid! I won’t hurt you![ Duchovny reaches the Beast Man, which turns out to be Chris Farley wearing a furry jacket ]
David Duchovny: Chris!
Chris Farley: Hey, David.. [ uncomfortable ]
David Duchovny: You’re the Beast Man?
Chris Farley: Um.. yeah.. sorry, I thought it was gonna be funny.. sorry.. [ slaps himself on the forehead ] Idiot! Stupid! Moron!
David Duchovny: It’s alright, it’s alright. Just don’t do it again.
Chris Farley: Okay, I’m sorry. Hey.. David. Um.. you know, the, um.. “X-Files” show? That is excellent!
David Duchovny: [ pleased ] Oh, really, you watch it?
Chris Farley: Um.. no. But.. [ can’t think of anything more to say ]
David Duchovny: That’s alright, Chris. Come on.
Chris Farley: Okay.[ they exit down as the hall, as the real Beast Man suddenly appears where they stood, creeps down to devour an armful of cookies while making Beast Man growls, then turns back the way he came ] [ dissolve back to Michael McKean sitting at Lorne Michaels’ desk watching a tiny TV screen.

Michael McKean: Mr. Duchovny’s getting a little too close to the truth. He may have to be stopped. Proceed with Operation: “Live From New York, It’s Saturday Night.”

David Duchovny’s Monologue
Interviewer V/O…..Kevin Nealon
[ woman in audience yells “Ow!” ]
David Duchovny: Thank you. Thank you. It’s great — it’s great to be here hosting “Saturday Night Live”. As you can probably guess, they’ve been trying to get me to host the show for years. Like when my hit movie, “Julia Has Two Lovers”, came out.
Thank — thank — thank you. They kept calling, and I figured, “Sure.” I’ll do the big “Julia Has Two Lovers” sketch that everyone’s waiting for, and then what? So I figured, let me get one more hit under my belt, then I’ll do the show. Sure enough – boom! – the next year, I’m starring in “Venice, Venice.”[ woman in audience yells “Whoo!” ]
Thank you. Thank you. Perfect. So I’m ready to do the show, we’re trying to set a date. And then, wouldn’t you know it – guess who gets a call to star in “The Rapture”.[ woman in audience yells “Whoo!” ]
Thank you. Hardly a movie you want to turn down. But one thing led to another, I do a movie, “Denial”, and of course, “New Year’s Day”. And here I am. [ a beat ] Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m also on “The X-Files”.[ audience cheers wildly ]
But, that’s just to pay the rent until “New Year’s Day II” comes out.
Anyway, I’m from New York, I grew up here, went to school here. And, as a gift, the folks here put together a little tape of some of the people from my old neighborhood. I’m pretty excited, because I haven’t seen it, so, could you roll the tape?[ dissolve to the filmed footage of people in Duchovny’s hometown ]
Elderly woman: David Duchovny? Never heard of him.
Eldermy Man: Duchovny? No. Doesn’t ring a bell.
Man: Dave Duchovny? No.
Interviewer V/O: You went to Collegiate High School with him.
Man: Yeah, I went to that school, but the name doesn’t ring a bell.
Interviewer V/O: Have you ever seen “The X-Files”?
Man: Yeah, I love that show.
Interviewer V/O: He’s on that show.
Man: [ shrugs ] Uh.. guess I must have missed him. Sorry.
Black Woman: You want to know about David Duchovny? Why? What’d he do? Shoot somebody? I knew he’d shoot somebody!
Blonde: Did I know David Duchovny? Yeah, I know him, I used to go out with him. And, David, if you’re watching, there’s someone here I think you should meet.[ pulls a little boy forward ]
Little Boy: Come home, Daddy!
Old Woman: I just feel sorry for the person that he shot.
Gay Man: Yeah, I know David, I used to go out with him. David, if you’re watching, there’s someone here who’d like to meetcha’.[ pulls a little boy forward ]
Little Boy: Come home, Daddy!
Alien Man: Of course, when we were in school, he never spoke to me, because he was one of the cool guys and I’m an alien. Then he gets this job on “The X-Files”, and suddenly it’s, like, “Hey, buddy, let’s hang out! Tell me what aliens are really like.” What a jerk![ dissolve back to Duchovny in Studio 8-H ]
David Duchovny: Oh, I miss those guys. They’re the best! Anyway, we’ve got a great show for you tonight. Rod Stewart is here, so stick around, we’ll be right back!

Norm MacDonald: Well … You know what? I’mgonna jump in there because, ah, I’m sure the bear isfull by now. … And then I’m gonna stick my fingerdown its throat and let it throw up at least one of mybuddies. If the buddy who comes up is too digestedalready, I’ll throw him back in. [stroking his chinthoughtfully] It’s the perfect plan.[MacDonald vaults the railing into the pit with asplash.

[Norm MacDonald sits at the WU desk, removing thepaper clip from his well-organized sheaf of papers.Music. SUPER: WEEKEND UPDATE / NORM MacDONALD]
Don Pardo V/O: Weekend Update with NormMacDonald![Cheers and applause.]
Norm MacDonald: Hi, I’m Norm Macdonald, thankyou. Thanks. Thank you. [clears throat] I’m NormMacDonald and this is the news:
It is now believed that in the months before theOklahoma bombing, suspect Timothy McVeigh may havesold drugs. Boy, is he in trouble now! Huh?With that–? …
A deadly outbreak of the Ebola virus is said to beresponsible for more than one hundred deaths in Africa– and a couple of really bad movies here in theUnited States. …[Photo of O. J. Simpson standing in courtroom with hisarms outstretched] Well, in a questionable move by thedefense team, this week, O. J. Simpson demonstratedhow to stab two people at the same time. … [cheersand applause]
A Labor Department study shows that the number oftemporary workers rose to two million in 1994. Andthat study doesn’t even include, the mosttemporary of the temporarily unemployed — KatoKaelin. … [shakes his head dismissively at the joke,chuckles]
Norm MacDonald: Now, we’d like to talk to LauraKightlinger and find out what she’ll be doing over thesummer break. [applause]
Laura Kightlinger: Well, thank you.
Norm MacDonald: Laura.
Laura Kightlinger: Hi. Thank you. Thanks,Norm.
Well, you know, June is coming up so everyone,everyone I know will be either getting marriedor giving birth which means I’ll be spending yetanother summer ripping up baby pictures and weddinginvitations. … And, you know, I sometimes wonder,you know, should I just force myself to go to theseweddings? Or should I turn on a pitching machine andlet the balls hit my face? … Hmm. I don’t know, itjust seems like most of my friends from high schoolhave long since tied the knot and I’m getting older,so maybe I should think about hanging my self….
And since most of my married friends have babies, I’vejust lost all hope for a normal conversation with themon the phone. [glumly, into an imaginary phone] Uh,hi, Karen. Karen? [as a hyper, excited mother] “Hi,Laura! Wait! Joshua wants to say hello to you! Say,hi, Josh! Say, hi! Say, hi! Say, hi! Josh, say, hi!”[as her glum self] Hi, Josh. Listen, uh, I’ve justtaken a handful of pills. … Can you get your motherback on the phone?” [as hyper, excited mother] “Didyou hear him?! He said, “Hi!”
I don’t know, I just– I guess I’m just not convincedthat getting married and having babies is the answer.And I know that there are happy marriages butit’s because of some freak alignment of souls. And Ihave a friend who experienced such an alignment. Shewas the girl in grade school who went blind fromsitting too close to the TV and she married the guy ingrade school who made a face and it stayed that way…. In fact, I just got a picture of their lovelytoddler who broke his neck from leaning back in achair. …
You know, all right, now – now maybe they are atruly happy family — but families are neverwhat they appear to be. You know, I was in the parkand I saw a father playing catch with his two youngsons — and then his wife came over, swore at him,slapped the kids, and threw their ball away. And thatjust hit me so hard — because my mom never didanything with us.
Norm MacDonald: Hey, Laura, I, er–
Laura Kightlinger: Yeah?
Norm MacDonald: I bet this has some kind ofhappy ending, huh?
Laura Kightlinger: No. No, Norm. Itdoesn’t.
Norm MacDonald: Oh.
Laura Kightlinger: But, you know? Despite mytone, I do believe in love. To me, therewould be nothing more gratifying than justlying next to someone that I’ve been with for years ina safe, sterile environment and allowing that personto do – [chuckles] whatever it is he does -into a laundered towel. … And, if I can have that,then maybe–
Norm MacDonald: Yeah, maybe what?
Laura Kightlinger: Well, maybe marriage is inmy future.
Norm MacDonald: [unenthusiastic] We-e-ell, Icertainly – envy the lucky guy that winds up with youthere, Laura. …
Laura Kightlinger: You do, Norm?
Norm MacDonald: Yeah.
Laura Kightlinger: Aww, thanks.
Norm MacDonald: Yeah, that’s all right. Allright. [polite applause] Laura Kightlinger,everybody.
Well, Gary Busey left the hospital this week afteroverdosing on cocaine last Friday. Doctors say Buseyis okay and he should be back in the hospitalin no time. …
Well, crime is down nearly twenty per cent in New YorkCity with only three hundred and eighty-four murdersso far this year. Only three hundred andeighty-four? You know, if you ask me, that’s stillthree hundred and seven too many. … [mumbles] That’swhat I think.
The Walt Disney Company has announced plans to build athree hundred million dollar hotel and entertainmentcomplex in New York’s Times Square. Constructionbegins next spring on their first attraction —Crack Whores of the Caribbean! …[applause]

[to Norm]For example, old friend, did you know … that theydon’t let me wear the mask any more. They’vethreatened to sue me if I appeared in public as the -Caped Crusader.
Norm MacDonald: [uninterested in bat-trivia]Ahh, that’s great, Adam. Hey – hey, how about that newBatman Forever movie, eh?
Adam West: Here’s an interesting – bat-fact,old chum: Cesar Romero played the Joker, but, youknow, he never shaved his mustache. Ha ha! [soberly]He’s dead now.
Norm MacDonald: [couldn’t care less] That’sgreat. Hey! What about Val Kilmer? You know, the newBatman?
Adam West: I wanted to play – Uncle Batman. He- he would be an older, distinguished gentleman –much like yourself, Commissioner Gordon. … And hewould help Batman fight crime! Ha! … Didn’t happen.
Norm MacDonald: Look, ah —
Adam West: Didn’t happen.
Norm MacDonald: Adam, are you gonna talk aboutthe new Batman movie here?
Adam West: Excuse me, Commissioner Gordon, I -I have to go. [abruptly exits]
Norm MacDonald: Adam West, ladies andgentlemen. Adam West. [polite applause] All right,well, in Russia this week, Boris Yeltsin, ah–[Suddenly, Adam West returns, wearing Batman’s capeand cowl.]
Adam West as Batman: Evildoers, beware!
Norm MacDonald: [unnerved] Ohh, my God!
Adam West as Batman: It is I, Batman!
Norm MacDonald: Ohh, hey, ah – ah,Batman … Hey what – what happened to AdamWest, wasn’t he–?
Adam West as Batman: You mean – millionaireBruce Wayne? Why, he’s at a board meeting at WayneIndustries.
Norm MacDonald: Yeah, right, hey, Adam, ah,seriously, you know, you’re not supposed to be wearingthat mask and cape in public. You know, somebody’sprobably watchin’–
Adam West as Batman: Let them sue me, Norm! Ifyou persist in calling me “Adam,” I – I’ll be forcedto use the bat-ray on you! [grabs at his pants, makingNorm nervous]
Norm MacDonald: [uncomfortable] Ohh, ah…
Adam West as Batman: [reassuring Norm] It’shere on my belt, don’t worry!
Norm MacDonald: [chuckles] No, no, no. Really.They’ll – they’ll sue you.
Adam West as Batman: [completely loses it] Isay let them, Norm! Then we’ll see who the true Batmanis! I’m Batman! Val Kilmer isn’t fit to wear mybat-tights. Do you hear me, Val? Do you hear me?!?!Aaagggggghhhhhh![Wearing mask and colorful costume, Batman’s youthfulsidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder, runs in and puts hishands on Adam West’s shoulders.]
Robin: Holy Not-Taking-Your-Medication, Batman!…
Adam West as Batman: Robin? Robin? Is that you,my ward? Help me!
Robin: Yes, Adam.
Adam West as Batman: I don’t know where I am.
Robin: I’ve come to take you home.
Adam West as Batman: Where – where is “home”?
Robin: The bat cave!
Adam West as Batman: [terrified] No! No! I’mafraid of bats! No!
Robin: [reassuring] I’ll take care of you.
Adam West as Batman: [calms down a little]Thank you, old chum![Batman and Robin exit.]
Norm MacDonald: Adam West again, ladies andgentlemen. [applause] And – the other guy, Burt Ward,was with him.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has released anupdated list of unsafe baby products. Topping the listthis year, is the really, really, really, really highchair. …
Well, last Friday in Washington D. C., the city’selementary school students pledged to stay drug freeas a gift to their moms on Mother’s Day. Meanwhile, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry … got his mom a great big boxof chocolates. …
Norm MacDonald: And now, here with a Mother’sDay message, Weekend Update’s own, and my hero, AdamSandler! [cheers and applause]
Adam Sandler: Thank you. Thank you! Thank you,thank you. Thank you, thank you. When we, uh, think ofMother’s Day, we always think of flowers and candy andtakin’ mom to dinner — you know, nice things. Buttonight I thought we should pay a little respect tosome moms who don’t have it so easy. Single moms. Thisyear there are over eight million single mothers outthere in this country alone. Eight million women whohave to act as both mother and father. One special daya year just isn’t enough for these brave, braveladies. Call me a feminist but, if you’re lookin’ forheroes, I’d say these women have Jordan and Gretzkybeat by a long shot. [spontaneous applause]
But, you know, what – what’s weird is, no one takesthe time to take care of them, make them feelspecial. Not just as mothers, but as women.Beautiful, beautiful women. So, I’d just like to sayto all you single moms out there, when you’re feelin’discouraged — like it’s all just too much for onegirl to take — little Adam’s here to make everythingall right. … That’s right, mama … I’m gonna make -I’m gonna make yo’ every fantasy come true. [sultrymusic begins; lights slowly dim; Sandler intones aspoken monologue over the music, as if on an early’70s soul hit:]
Dat man who walked out on you had to be crazy,baby,
What with your body lookin’ so right.
But you don’t have to be lonely tonight.
You know, mama, I hear you like to give your kids icecream.
Well, I like to eat ice cream, too.
But I hate eatin’ it out of a bowl.
Maybe you wanna tell little Adam where to that eat icecream off of.
Norm MacDonald: Whoa! Geez!
Adam Sandler: What?
Norm MacDonald: Adam, this is gettin’ a littleinappropriate here. …
Adam Sandler: Wait, Norm. I’m gettin’ to thegood part. …
[light changes to a smoky blue; a spotlit Sandlersings]Turn out the lights, single mama!
Mother’s Day is he-ere!
Put away those diapers, pretty darlin’!
Take off that girdle and brassiere! …
The kids are fast asleep, pretty mama!
Time for the adults to get naughty!
You look so hot in that terry cloth robe!
Let it fall to the ground – oh, Lordy!
Adam Sandler: ‘Cause I’m your SingleMother’s Day present, baby!
Singers: Ooh, baby!
Adam Sandler: And I can go all nightlong!
Singers: Ahhh, go all nightlong!
Adam Sandler and Singers: Not once, nottwice —
Adam Sandler: But three times, baby!
And I’ll sing you my Turkey Song!
Singers: Ooooh waahhhh! Turkey lurkeydoo!
Adam Sandler: I’ll do it foryou!
Singers: Turkey lurkey dee!
Adam Sandler: Take a big bite out ofme!
Singers: Turkey lurkey dactic!
Adam Sandler: I’ll make sure to wear aprophylactic!
Singers: Turkey lurkey lie!
Adam Sandler: Sammy Davis, Junior, only had- one – eye!
Singers: Doo, doo, one eye![Song ends to huge cheers and applause]
Adam Sandler: [shouts] Happy Mother’s Day![waves to camera, shakes hands with singers]
Norm MacDonald: Adam Sandler, everybody! That’sit, folks. See ya next year![Music. Norm manfully shakes hands with Sandler whowaves again. Norm nods and waves acknowledgment to thesingers as he removes the microphone from his necktie.Fade.]
