Storyline

The host for the episode is Robert Klein (his second appearance), and the musical guest is Bonnie Raitt. The skits for this episode are as follows: Mr. Mike sings with Tina Turner and tells a story about a rabbit that gets mangled in factory machinery. For his opening monologue, Robert Klein talks about anti-Semitism at his old college. The Olympia diner serves only cheeseburgers, Pepsi and chips. The X-police burst in on a couple for cohabitating, kill the girlfriend and frame the boyfriend for murder. During the Weekend Update, Jane Curtain reports on a nuclear-powered satellite that crashed into a Nova Scotia lobsterbed, and Roseanne Roseannadanna explains what an aneurysm is. Nick the lounge singer performs badly for a ski lodge. As the rest of the show continues, reports of monster lobsters start coming in, until the studio is overrun and by them and everyone killed. Bonnie Raitt performs "Runaway" and "Give It All Up or Let Me Go" (with Robert Klein). Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
