    Spnited hit it back in the day. Then Frank found out. Sinatra was so pissed that he threw spnited out of the Rat Pack and replaced him with Joey Bishop.

    That's gotta suck, being Pete Best to Joey Bishop's Ringo.

    That reminds of the story some Las Vegas comic/Sinatra pal told ... Shecky Greene, maybe? "Frank Sinatra saved my life once. I was getting the shit beat out of me after a show in the casino parking lot. Then Frank showed up and said, 'That's enough, boys.'"

    “Ava Gardner or Rita Hayworth: Who would you rather nail? I disqualify myself, because I've done them both."

    Sinatra Group -- one of SNL's greatest skits.

    Luther Campbell: I swear, man, I don't have any talent. None! This is all I got. [ to Billy Idol ] Tell him, man.

    Frank Sinatra: No, you're wrong, schoolboy. You don't need to work blue! You'll never play the big rooms with that crap. Ask Redd Foxx. You don't need the blue stuff, kid, you got talent!

    Luther Campbell: But I don't have talent.

    Frank Sinatra: You've got it, kid. You listen to me - you've got a Ben Vereen quality, I can't put my finger on it. Take the high road, baby!

    Luther Campbell: I swear, man, I don't have any talent. None! This is all I got. [ to Billy Idol ] Tell him, man.

    Billy Idol: Yeah, he sucks!

    Sinead O'Connor: He's not talented.

    Frank Sinatra: No, Bob Goulet - that's not talented! You got talent! You got a Dionne Warwick/Falana kind of thing going. Steve and Eydie?

    Eydie Gorme: Oh, you're right, Frank.

    Steve Lawrence: Absolutely. He's great!

    Frank Sinatra: Of course he is, you brownnoses. Look at you, you're just swimming in my wake.

    Luther Campbell: Be honest, I don't care about the head. I like the butt.

    Frank Sinatra: I hear you, baby. Forget the head. Put a bag over it and do your business! Am I right, Steve and Eydie?

    Steve Lawrence: [ slow to answer ] You bet, Frank!

    Eydie Gorme: You know it, Chairman!

    Frank Sinatra: You were a little slow that time.

    Steve and Eydie: Sorry, Frank.

    Frank Sinatra: Forget it, you're alright. You could pick up a check once in a while..

    Eydie Gorme: Frank, that's not fair.

    Frank Sinatra: Shut up! Okay, issue number four: Milli Vanilli. What is this faggot crap? Uncle Fester!

    Sinead O'Connor: I don't understand the question.

    Frank Sinatra: I'll tell you what you better understand! Next time you see Old Glory riding up that pole, you better sing that anthem, darling! You're lucky you're a chick, or you'd be nothing but a stain on the road and a crewcut. Our founding fathers went to the mat for you, baby!

    Sinead O'Connor: It's not my flag - I'm Irish.

    Frank Sinatra: Oh? Well, then stay off of this stuff.. [ mimes drinking ] That's the curse of you people.
     
  11. Go to the video section on nbc.com and there are sketches from many snl cast members, year by year. I believe the Sinatra one with Sting as Billy Idol is there. Chunks in my stool, indeed.

    Methinks Belushi's "Don't Look Back in Anger" works for me today.

    I was hoping somebody would go the SNL route. Definitely one of my favorite sketches.

    I heard somewhere that Sinatra's family hated that skit and Hartman's impression of the "tough guy" Sinatra.
