    Pulling from (ok, a blatant ripoff) of the Greatest TV scenes thread, what are some of the outstanding moments from Saturday Night Live?

    Tons and tons of great skits on that show, but the one that immediately jumps to mind for me is Chris Farley doing his Chippendale dance with Patrick Swayze.

    The Sinatra Group.

    For my money, everything else is fighting for distant second.

    The one with Will Ferrell where he and his "lover" keep telling stories about their freaky sex.

    The Metrocard commercial with Roseanne Barr and Phil Hartman.

    The All-Drug Olympics.

    Happy Fun Ball.

    OK, I'll play on this one ... already mentioned the two SNL things in the other thread. That goof on the Thomas-Hill hearings still tops my list. Laughed so hard the first time I saw that, I missed much of the dialogue because I was busy gasping for breath.

    Love their political humor in general. The one with Dana Carvey doing Ross Perot, driving Admiral Stockdale (Phil Hartman) out into the country to leave him there was good. "Gridlock!"

    Love Chris Farley doing Matt Foley, motivational speaker ... the one with David Spade and Christina Applegate. Farley is right in their faces, screaming at the top of his lungs, and I love Spade holding his hand over his face because he's completely lost it and is laughing out loud, but trying to hide it. "A writer? Well, lahdy, frickin' dah! Son, I hear that lately, instead of using your paper for writing, you been using it for ROLLIN' DOOBIES!!! Well, you'll have time for a whole lotta doobie rollin' when you're livin' in a VAN, DOWN BY THE RIVER!"

    And then you have to love Will Ferrell doing his Harry Carey impersonation, hosting some show about outer space with Jeff Goldblum ... "we all know the moon isn't made out of cheese, but what if it was made out of barbecue spare ribs ... would you eat it then? It's a simple question, doctor. Would you eat the moon if it were made out of spare ribs. I sure would. And then I'd wash it down with a tall, cool Budweiser."

    Great call!. "OH! He's pulled his arms off!!"

    The reason I didn't list it is it was actually part of Weekend Update and not so much a skit on its own.

    I actually still have that on a VHS tape somewhere (as I do a lot of late 80s, early 90s SNL).

    Yeah, but it says "scenes" too.
