Storyline

The host for the episode is Fred Willard, and the musical guest is Devo. The skits for this episode are as follows: The opening act is interrupted by a honker in the audience. Aging stuntman Cliff Preston attempts to do his job but doesn't move as fast as he used to. During the Weekend Update, Dan Aykroyd rants about the NFL's new cheerleader uniforms, paying particular attention to the disgusting ways in which the outfits are designed to arouse male viewers. Mainway toys again attempts to defend the quality of its products. Mr. Bill visits New York only to get ripped apart by an escalator and dropped from the top of the Empire State Building. A new store, The Scotch Boutique, sells nothing but tape, and is having a hard time staying in business. Devo performs "Satisfaction" and "Jocko Homo".

Quotes

Joan Face: Mr Mainway, let's talk about the milk you're serving our children. We've taken the libery of having your milk analyzed at the lab. I think the public has a right to know. It's dog milk.
Irwin Mainway: Yeah, so what? Dogs are mammals, aren't they?
Joan Face: I don't know where you get it, how you get it or who actually milks the dogs, and I don't care to know.
Irwin Mainway: Well, it's your loss, Miss Face, because it's a very interesting process, let me tell ya.
