SNL: S18E15... HOST: JOHN GOODMAN... DATE: MARCH 13, 1993

The Wicker Breakdown:

  1. This week's show started with Richmeister In Waco where our favorite Copy Guy plays his famous name game at the David Koresh compound while making fun the fearless cult leader for thinking that he’s the reincarnate of Jesus. Of course, this being the opening sketch it eventually built to the announcement of, “Live from New York…”
  2. John Goodman then officially opened the show by singing the classic ‘60s hit So Much In Love with The Bravados singing backup after sharing a story about how he didn’t feel that the monolog that was written for him fit with his sense of humor.
  3. This was followed by a fake ad for Wilson Countersink Flanges which focused so much on engineering jargon it was hard to tell what the commercial was actually for but whatever it was, it seemed kind of important.
  4. Bear And The Brain was a college-themed sketch where John Goodman just got accepted into the same school as his best friend played by Rob Schneider. Goodman played a big jock named Bear with Schneider being his brainy friend who helped him get into the school. After a quick reunion, Chris Farley entered the room as a guy named Ox who became Schneider's new big jock friend that he connected with while Bear was still at home. At first Bear was destroyed by this discovery until his overreaction led David Spade to enter the room to get him to quiet down only to become Bear’s new brainy friend.
  5. Let's Talk And Talk And Talk About The Movies was as the title implies a movie talk show here Julia Sweeney interviewed John Goodman as a movie producer who made a huge series of Soylent Green sequels where the story is exactly the same only the Soylent is different colors and serve different need other than just replacing food.
  6. We then got another Deep Thoughts By Jack Handey where Jack shared why he can’t stand people that he owes money to because he finds them to be super cheap.
  7. Mary J. Blige then took to the stage to perform Reminisce.
  8. Once again, Kevin Nealon gave us the news. This week, Kevin Nealon interviewed Chris Farley who played The Storm Of The Century the hit New York that year. Chris Rock introduced a new character named Buster Jenkins who shared his crazy old man ideas about how NASA spaceships are to blame for the latest economic crisis. Adam Sandler also introduced his Sleepyhead character who tried to share his views on a situation taking place in Russia only to end up rambling in his sleep.
  9. How'd You Do That? was a talk show sketch with Kevin Nealon as the host who simply asks his panel of guests who have all been in freak accidents the simple titular question, How’d you do that? They then had a plastic surgeon come in to share his crazy solution to the guests’ problems.
  10. We then got another installment of Coffee Talk with Linda Richman On A Cruise where she and John Goodman went through the normal Coffee Talk routine only this time they were on a boat only it wasn’t actually the show, it was just Linda on vacation.
  11. Cantina Boy Attends A Block Party was the debut of Adam Sandler’s naïve adult Boy Scout character who over embellished all of his achievements in a way that annoyed all of the guests.
  12. Mary J. Blige then returned to the stage to perform Sweet Thing.
  13. Turkish Storekeeper was a sketch that took place in a corner store in New York where John Goodman threw a brink through the window because he was pissed off over an incident that took place in Egypt. Rob Schneider played the Turkish store owner who had to remind Goodman that he has made this mistake before which sent us back in time for a montage of moments where he threw bricks through the window in the past due to his racist confusion.
  14. This was followed by another Deep Thoughts By Jack Handey where Jack shared the difference between a wise man and a stupid guy.
  15. To Be Sure, It's Time to Rock! was a fake ad for an album full of rock and roll songs sung to an Irish drinking song melody.
  16. The Man Without A Shout was a sketch where John Goodman killed a group of his friends when his shout caused a massive avalanche and from that moment on he swore that he would never shout again which ruined his career as an umpire.
  17. Finally, John Goodman closed the show by thanking the audience and saying his goodnights.
