During the Weekend Update, Jane Curtin reports on an archaeological find in Egypt, McDonald's hamburgers and Sambo's restaurants, Bill Murray reports on Neil Armstrong, Vietnamese refugees, and the death of Jimmy Hoffa.

Well, the Bantha knows it'll take a little while for the Nava-computer to calculate the coordinates. So, then... the Bantha goes over to Jabba the Hutt's bar, and he gets an idea.
