Storyline

The host for the episode is Steve Martin, and the musical guest is Kinky Friedman. The skits for this episode are as follows: The coach of the Yankees consoles his team after losing the World Series, and one of the players gives him their final decision. Chevy Chase attempts to make an endorsement for milk, but keeps adding in its less pleasant effects. An episode of Jeopardy from 1999 gives a look at some social changes in the future. During the Weekend Update, Chevy comments on Jimmy Carter's cross-dressing, the latest election poll results, a mafia funeral in a pizza oven, and a gorilla crashing an airplane. An ad features a new combination watch and German Shepherd. Several counter-culture acts perform in a late-50's beatnik café. Jane Curtain interviews the author of a book analyzing the connection between sexual activity and sports performance. Mary Tyler Moore gets murdered by Ted before their newscast as a prank. A new diet plan works by stranding dieters out in the wilderness... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
