Storyline

The host for the episode is Louise Lasser, and the musical guest is The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The skits for this episode are as follows: John Belushi and Chevy Chase have an argument over how the opening to the show should be done. After Louise Lasser's opening monologue, General Idi Amin comes on to warn viewers about the importance of checking oneself for V.D., using himself as an example of the effects of advanced-stage syphilis. In a parody of Swedish films, a couple involved in a secret affair fool death by sending him out for a pizza. An advertisement pitches potholders made from human hair. Chevy Chase presents the Weekend Update, with a special segment on Olga Korbut. Two teenage girls discuss the hazards of dating with a padded bra and whether they'd want to see a guy naked. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band performs "Panama". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Although it was joked about in the monologue sketch, Lasser really did lock herself in her dressing room before airtime refusing to do the show. She was convinced to come out just before airtime. If Lasser had not come out, Michaels planned to have Chevy Chase take Lasser's place wearing a wig and future cast member Bill Murray taking Chase's place in sketches. See more »
