Eunice: You lay off of me!
as Thelma "Mama" Harper: You aren't playing with a full deck Eunice. I think you done sprung a leak in your dinghy. What is the problem Eunice, is it your time of month or something, you riding the cotton pony?

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, the charwoman (an animated caricature of Carol Burnett) is seen in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen mopping the floor. As the credits roll she suddenly turns and notices them and for the rest of the sequence she leans on her mop and watches them move from bottom to top (except for a brief pause to scratch her behind).

The Greatest Variety Show Ever
19 October 2002 | by StreepFan126See all my reviews

i can not understand why this show is not in reruns. I'm writing a letter to TV Land, to ask why they have never aired this on their network. What makes this show so good, is the chemistry between the perfect cast. A variety show like Saturday Night Live is greatly dependent on the chemistry among its cast members. When one of them leaves, it upsets the balance among the rest. This show was lucky enough to have most of its cast stay for the duration of the run, and therefore, it is the best.
