The skits for this episode are as follows: For the hundredth episode, Garrett Morris holds a séance backstage to contact the spirits of the departed, and instead finds John Belushi, who is annoyed at being called in to do such a bit part. Bill Murray sings about how much he loves living in New York. The Horizon Television advertises itself as the biggest TV ever, though the screen is still just 12 inches. Sean the Leprechaun keeps getting caught by treasure-seekers because he's as big as a regular person. Todd DiLaMuca attempts to run for class president, but a smear campaign by his rival derails his hopes. During the Weekend Update, Bill Murray reports on the Ayatollah's hat-buying habits, Jane Curtain reports a false story about Walter Cronkite in the hopes of getting a date with him, and Roseanna Roseannadanna starts talking about breastfeeding but gets sidetracked about Bo Derek's nose hair. The Minstrels of Newcastle prepare for a performance but the drummer cant get the beat right. James Taylor & Paul Simon perform "Cathy's Clown", "Sunny Skies" and "Take Me to the Mardi Gras. David Sanborn performs "Anything You Want". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher See less
