Storyline

The host for the episode is Johnny Cash, and the musical guest is Elton John. The skits for this episode are as follows: Andy Rooney stars as Ralph Kramden in an episode of "The HoneyRooners", doing his usual observational monologuing. When a condemned prisoner insists on his right to a final request just before execution, he gets Johnny Cash to sing "99,999 Bottles of Beer on the Wall". After coming back from another tropical vacation, Reagan opens up a dialog over the Falklands between Thatcher and Galtieri by having them act out a love scene together. Two women test their hair for dandruff by shaking it over Johnny Cash. A wandering poet muses on the beauty of the commuter train he's riding, but the other passengers don't share his enthusiasm. Johnny Cash performs "Ring Of Fire", "Folsom Prison Blues", "I Walk The Line" and "Sunday Morning Coming Down". Elton John performs "Empty Garden" and "Ball And Chain".
