In this - by out-of-character stepping Phil Hartman introduced - Titanic (1997) spoof, Dave is the captain of the ship who warns the crew for icebergs but gets jeered. Nevertheless, he tells sailor Matthew to be on the look-out for icebergs. Bill is a bourgeois passenger who doesn't want the riff-raff from third class to be on the same deck as the elite. Joe is the mechanic and Lisa is the beautiful young, stylish woman who's wooed by Walt. Written by
