Storyline

The host for the episode is Teri Garr, and the musical guest is The B-52's. The skits for this episode are as follows: Father Guido Sarducci attempts to get an interview with Paul McCartney following his arrest in Japan for marijuana possession, but is unsuccessful. A group of débutantes in prison try to adjust to the restricted social life behind bars, hoping that George Bush will be elected and pardon them. During the Iowa primaries, the candidates try to win the favor of Iowa voters by showing up at their houses and doing chores for them. During the Weekend Update, Al Franken repeats his hope that the 80's will be the Franken Decade, and unveils the Franken decade medallion. Lady Plinth-Garnell reviews bad theater. Mr. Hands the psychiatrist tries to help Mr. Bill by having him re-live some of his past traumas. The B-52's perform "Rock Lobster" and "Dance This Mess Around".
