Bonus Trivia

.

"There was no writing process. People would come in with ideas, and we'd all act out our ideas over and over until we pretty much got the scene in rough shape. Then we'd go to the next scene, and by the time it came to the regular show we did it the best we remembered it." --Kevin McDonald, quoted in The New York Times, April 7, 1996.

.

"Let's say a comic troupe is a glass of lemonade. Some people like to water it down. 'Saturday Night Live' is a watery lemonade, but it doesn't offend anyone so more people drink it. Our lemonade is more bitter, more tangy. The people that drink it really love it." --Kevin McDonald, in USA Today, April 10, 1996.
