Quotes

Reporter: Aren't you going to say: Live form New York, it's Saturday Night?
Ross Perot: I don't wanna discuss what I may or may not say, you are not listening!
Reporter: But how are we going to start the show if you don't say it?
Ross Perot: Is that the way the game is played? You can't start the show without saying that? You can't just say: "Here's the funny show, enjoy!" You can't do that? Okay, fine, fine. Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!

'The best' collection of Saturday Night Live skits ever!
11 June 2001 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that I am probably one of the biggest Dana Carvey fans in the world so when I saw this available on video at the video store, I quickly pulled out my wallet and bought it. As soon as I entered the front door, I ran into my room and popped the video into the VCR. For the whole 75 minutes, I was cracking up like crazy. It was one of the funniest videos I have ever seen in my entire life. I hope that all of the Dana Carvey fans have a chance to watch his best work on this classic video.
