Bill Murray is welcome addition to this episode, in the first sketch he plays Joe DiMaggio as owner of a restaurant, he challenges customers to try and strike him out and they get a free meal. All people wear batting helmets when he swats the ball all over the place.
Guy and Mrs Prickley try to come up with new programming when LaRue busts in, they will only offer him another Street Beef.
A very funny commercial for Tide detergent is next with Norman Mailer (Eugene Levy) beating up Gore Vidal (Martin Short) and using Tide to clean the blood off of his clothes.
Next is a funny takeoff on old time serials and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Dave Thomas plays a movie writer who hates the stuff he writes but then it really begins to happen to him in real life.
The Days Of The Week shows Clay and Sue Ellen's wedding. Violet recognizes her real son Billy. Clay looks like he is dying at the altar. Both Rocco and Harrington pull guns. Bill Murray also shows up like Dustin Hoffman from The Graduate. I can remember him singing Mrs Robinson when he runs to the church when I saw this on TV back in 1982. It appears to be cut from the DVD,
LaRue tries doing a topic of the big "O" and women faking it while at a bar. He gets slapped but meets new friend Donny (Murray) who makes T shirts and becomes LaRue's new body guard. There is a funny commercial with Moranis as a lawyer named Lipschitz who offers to change people's weird names. Bill Needle gets a new show called TV Talk where he complains about ratings.
Carl and Fred Scutz have a funny sequence where they want to make a delivery of film and head cheese. It turns into a Deliverance parody as they go down river in a canoe. Martin Short plays banjo playing kid. Fred encounters two hillbillies who tell him to squeal like a man.
The finals scenes in Guy's office has Donny threatening him with a gun and LaRue being given anything he wants. Donny tells Guy he can get a super group together with the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Barbra Streisand (on drums!).
