SNL: S07E20... HOST: OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN... DATE: MAY 22, 1982

The Wicker Breakdown:

  1. This week's episode starts in the women's restroom where the hooker from the Velvet Jones People's Court sketch has a run-in with Olivia Newton-John and pesters her like a crazy fan, and Olivia attempts to give her advice.

  2. They then announce Olivia Newton-John and the cast as if they are supposed to do the lame huddle, but then she jumps right into singing Let's Get Physical in place of the opening monolog.

  3. We then get a repeat of the TransEastern airline for what seems to be the third or fourth time.

  4. This is followed by the classic sketch with Piscopo as Sinatra and Eddie as Stevie Wonder where the two sing their version of Ebony And Ivory.

  5. We then get another installment of I Married A Monkey where Sweetchuck's monkey wife ran off to join the covenant, and he and their monkey child try to talk her into coming back home.

  6. We then go to Heaven where Hitler tries to sneak in dressed as Mother Teresa just to get a peek at what it's like up there. The sketch then gets a Monty Python interruption accusing SNL of stealing their style of bit, which then sends us into the Twilight Zone.

  7. Not A Record Ad is an ad for something, but it's definitely not a record ad.

  8. Olivia Newton-John then returns to the music stage to perform Make A Move On Me.

  9. Once again, Brian Doyle-Murray and Christine Ebersole give us the news with Mary Gross "Out on assignment." This week, Mary Gross interviews "Arnold Schwarzenegger" about the release of Conan only it turns out to be some random guy. We also get a Monty Python ad for their upcoming movie The Secret Policeman's Other Ball. Sweetchuck gets a segment of Looks At Books where he makes fun of self-help books. Olivia Newton-John gets to do a commentary. Piscopo checks in with sports where he shares crazy sports endorsements. Finally, Eddie Murphy checks in to give his observations about the upcoming prom night and how it's a night where everyone hooks up in a way to scare the fathers out there viewing the show.

  10. Michael Davis then takes the stage to perform another comedic juggling act where he juggles ping pong balls with his mouth.

  11. We then go to a business lunch where the guys from the cast talk business while only using jargon and acronyms.

  12. Next, we got a Grease parody showing how Sandy treats the underclassmen after her cool-girl transition.

  13. Sports Organ Classics is a fake ad for a way to bring the ballpark home by selling the music sheet for every generic sports organ song.

  14. We then get a repeat of The Bird parody called The Clams where a town gets attacked by clams.

  15. Finally, Olivia Newton-John closes the season by thanking the audience and saying her goodnights.
