[ Chevy Chase, Martin Short and Steve Martin walk onto the stage; Martin and Steve are dressed in tuxedos, but Chevy appears in his old “Three Amgigos” costume, alarmed to discover he’s the only one ]

Chevy Chase: Wait a minute. Didn’t we have a conference call and discuss this, where we were all gonna wear the Amigo costumes?

Martin Short: No, no. Remember, we talked about it and we decided it would seem very desperate and sad.

Chevy Chase: I mean, does it seem desperate and sad? I –

Steve Martin: [ shakes head ]

Martin Short: Yes. Frighteningly sad. Anyway! Let’s get on with it, shall we? I think what the audience really wants to see is the salute!

Chevy Chase: Oh, yea-eah! Okay! Now, we’re talking! [ gives the “Three Amigos” salute ]

Steve Martin: I think what Marty meant was the salute to the first five years.

Chevy Chase: The first five years? Oh. Good idea. Let’s watch this.

Alec Baldwin: None of us would be here tonight if it weren’t for Lorne Michaels.

[ audience applauds ]

He created this show as a safe place for all of us to work, and we owe him a debt of gratitude. But I guarantee you that there is not one person here tonight who hasn’t imitated him or made jokes about him behind his back. Hey, he’s the boss, you’re supposed to make fun of him. Here’s another swipe at the old man.
