Quotes

Dennis Miller: Here with a commentary is a grumpy old man. Welcome Grumpy Old Man.
Grumpy Old Man: I'm old and I'm not happy. Everything today is improved and I don't like it. I hate it! In my day we didn't have hair dryers. If you wanted to blow dry your hair you stood outside during a hurricane. Your hair was dry but you had a sharp piece of wood driven clear through your skull and that's the way it was and you liked it! You loved it. Whoopee, I'm a human head-kabob. We didn't have Manoxidol and Hair Wings, in my day if ...

'The best' collection of Saturday Night Live skits ever!
11 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that I am probably one of the biggest Dana Carvey fans in the world so when I saw this available on video at the video store, I quickly pulled out my wallet and bought it. As soon as I entered the front door, I ran into my room and popped the video into the VCR. For the whole 75 minutes, I was cracking up like crazy. It was one of the funniest videos I have ever seen in my entire life. I hope that all of the Dana Carvey fans have a chance to watch his best work on this classic video.
