The host for the episode is Eliott Gould (his fourth appearance), and the musical guest is Peter Tosh. The skits for this episode are as follows: President Carter appears with his daughter Amy for an event on the White House lawn. Rovco presents their new all-flammable Christmas tree. The Widette family, who all have enormous backsides, prepare for dinner at home. During the Weekend Update, the reports include Beethoven's birthday, human rights abuses in Iran, and Cleveland's default, while Laraine Newman interviews the owner of Studio 54, Jane Curtain and Dan Aykroyd debate relations with China, and Roseanne Roseannadanna gives advice about beating depression during the holidays that ends up making Jane sick. An interviewer talks with a down-on-his-luck man who came to New York from Tacoma to help make his holiday better. Honker starts selling Christmas trees when the owner o the lot steps out for a minute. Peter Tosh performs "Don't Look Back" (with Mick Jagger) and "Bush Doctor". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>
