The skits for this episode are as follows: Andy Kaufman hypes his upcoming wrestling match. For his opening monologue, Danny DeVito invites the rest of the cast from Taxi to take a bow after their show was canceled by ABC without warning. Louis DePalma drives a taxi down to the ABC headquarters and detonates a bomb, bringing down the entire building as revenge for their canceling his show. Doug and Wendy Whiner annoy those around them with their constant whining. For the Weekend Update, Brian Doyle-Murray reports on Al Haig's attempts to resolve the Falklands crisis and accusations that Nancy Reagan failed to return a set of borrowed jewels, Christine Ebersole reports on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn turning down an invitation to the White House and political changes in Argentina, Dr. Badofsky warns of the many diseases people can catch from animals, Mary Gross attempts to report on the new production of Annie with an impostor dog dressed as Sandy, and Lou Grant makes a try at reporting on the weather only to lose his temper when he gets canceled yet again. After wrestling women, Andy Kaufman agrees to meet Jerry Lawler in the ring. Sparks performs "Mickey Mouse" and "I Predict". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher See less
