Storyline

The host for the episode is Chevy Chase (his second appearance as host), and the musical guest is Marianne Fathfull. The skits for this episode are as follows: Henry Kissenger visits with former president Ford and reminisces on old times together. An ad invites diners to come to Pre-chewed Charlie's restaurant, where the food is easier to eat because all the hard chewing work has already been done for you. Other skits include the Bel Arabs, You Can't Win, Speaking of Fashion with Mr. Blackwell, the life of Hollywood's forgotten director Linden Palmer, and a segment about Honduras. Marianne Faithfull performs "Broken English", and "Guilt", and Chevy Chase performs "Sixteen Tons" with Tom Scott & The Saturday Night Live Band. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Weekend Update Anchor: If you ask me, the best defense our country could have... would be an army of poorly-equipped, untrained, unarmed women. That way, either we would win the war or we'd make the Russians look like incredible jerks. And isn't that what it's all about, anyway? That's my opinion. I'm Bill Murray, and my girlfriend's going.
