    This is a heartwarming sketch...I love it! There are mixed emotions, I laughed and feeling concerned at the same time...glad the dude changed his mind on his "way down". I love how old casts didn't rely on cue cards too much like the recent ones. And I love Martin Short character's sincerity. πŸ‘πŸ˜Šβ€

    Wonderful skits from a wonderful time in SNL. It’s great to see comedy like this with no foul language or slurs. Also I was reminded of how Dreyfus’ looks played on my pre teenage imagination πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž

    The all-star year. It may have been the best year for the show, which is saying a lot. At least two of the top three video sketches were done this year: The male synchronized swimmers and the 60 Minutes bootleg novelty items (The Minkman Bros). "C@ck in the Box" or "Peyton Manning United Way"" would be #3. Also that year, "Smelt Night" (Crystal and Guest as old Negro League players), "The Magic Shoes" and the Jim Belushi/toilet paper video sketches were great. The Ed Grimley "Rear Window" sketch with Ed Asner was also classic.

    Ed Grimley originated on SCTV, which was a funnier show than SNL, as was Mad TV. Love Martin Short! Interesting to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus on there, who was wasted on SCTV but ideal on Seinfeld.

    Yes, it was like it wasn't even a real, heavy, body hitting Ed, with the extra force from stories up, haha! (it was an obvious dummy) it landed like some clothes tossed aside. I SAW this sketch back then, I've watched since 1975 religiously, and I had forgotten it, but when he left the building, I just KNEW he would be hit by Chris' character! Predictable, or do I recall it, ? Anyway, where did they go then, maybe on a 'DATE'?

    Amazing piece. Isn't that the calm chap Peter Scolari from "Bosom Buddies"? Oh I miss his work. To me was at least as deep and gripping an actor as Tom Hanks. The cast of that show was simply and truly a gift to the world. So gifted and with such depth of understanding of their characters. Like the episode when Peter Scolari danced with a alumnus at a class reunion. He had the chance to apologize for succumbing to peer pressure because she lived with deafness. An unforgettable piece, I must say.

    Martin Short has been funny; this shit is insufferable at best. People only claim to like this tripe to come off as cool. I guarantee it. There is nothing remotely redeeming or amusing about this 'skit'.

    @jojopuppyfish Well, according to Larry his stuff wasn't used because early on he refused to stay and work all night (which was the established cocaine-inspired practice of the writing staff since the beginning of the show). He had written his jokes and was going home. He told the producer and when that didn't go over very well he said he "quit" and walked out. Later he would use this as the basis for an episode of Seinfeld. Unfortunately for Larry when he calmed down and realized he was out of a job and his neighborhood suggested he go back and tell everyone it was just a joke...well, when he went back to nbc they told him of course he still had a job because you can't just quit. He signed a contract so he couldn't have walked out if he'd wanted to. So he HAD to stay and write material for the rest of that year but as a punishment the show refused to use any of this stuff. Seems a little childish on both parties parts.

  61. jojopuppyfish

    jojopuppyfish26 hari yang lalu

    They didn't use Larry David either. He wrote for the show in1984 and got ONE sketch on the air. Clearly Larry liked Julia enough to cast her in Seinfeld

    *On the way down I was thinking about what you said* Surprisingly, this is an accurate description of the experience of jumpers. People who have survived things like jumping from bridges almost all say that as soon as they jumped, they thought something like "oh, Ive made a horrible mistake!" For most suicidal people, the actual suicidal crisis is very brief and healthcare intervention works. For example, according to the research of Dr. Richard Seiden, Among people who tried to jump off the Golden Gate bridge but were stopped by police, over 90% never went on to kill themselves. The statistics for people who survived a suicide attempt are usually the same or even better. Research done since his work has produced very similar results. A very small percent of people keep trying until they finally do pass away, but for the VAST majority of people, if they can just be prevented and recieve some care, the crisis ends!

    @William French True enough. I suppose it's also down to how professional Martin Short and Christopher Guest were.

  96. William French

    William French21 hari yang lalu

    @Jerry Booth Could be. I think part of that also has to do with lines changing at the last minute. BUT shows like 'The Jackie Gleason Show' were done live, scripts were changed at the last minute, and the cast memorized their lines. This clip was simply refreshing. It a pleasure seeing a real artist as work and no laser focused on cue cards.

  97. Jerry Booth

    Jerry Booth21 hari yang lalu

    That may be down to the show having a different producer at this time. Generally Lorne doesn't really like the cast members memorizing lines. Janeane Garafolo got upbraided for doing so when she was a cast member.
