Storyline

The host for the episode is Eric Idle (his second appearance), and the musical guests are Alan Price and Neil Innes. The skits for this episode are as follows: A British soldier interrogates an Irish prisoner by torturing a potato. During his opening monologue, Eric Idle joins the Queen in hosting a telethon to help save England, and over the course of the show manages to raise $20. The pot growers of America urge everyone to buy locally. Nixon gives an interview to David Frost but turns out to be terribly boring. During the Weekend Update, Jane Curtain reports on an iceberg floating from Antarctica, Alex Haley being accused of plagiarism, and Groucho Marx's former manager, Bill Murray talks about punishing schoolgirls, and Emily Litella confesses her love for Tom Snyder. Two boxers face off to get the most laughs. A low budget film depicts the Battle of Britain. A host and guest conduct an interview based solely of nonsense words. Alan Price performs "Poor People" and Neil Innes ... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
