  1. Seeing this is so surreal. I totally forgot Chevy Chase was actually young once. Gilda, on the other hand, always looks the same. She is immortalized.

  2. Gilda Radner does a woman like the Monty Python did their elder "pepperpot" ladies, and it's hilarious. This skit is clearly molded in the Python category.

  3. Gilda: "We need more violets on TV. People should learn about horticulture & gardening in general. If not, how will we smell roses & whatnot?!"
    Chevy: "We're talking about VIOLENCE, not VIOLETS."
    Gilda: "Oh. Never mind."

  4. My brothers, mom, nephew and I went around saying "Never mind!" like that all the time. Good times.

  5. Gilda you were a genius — Emily, Roseann, and all the rest were pure comic genius.  And they were not nasty and hatefule like today's SNL.  No one ever came close on SNL.

  6. Now this gal died pretty slowly of cancer. It was different when you couldn't see what was going on outside your room. And there we have belief in the virgin birth

  7. this was really funny, for the times. kinda like how people found pong fun. because they just didn't know any better

  8. Emily Litella: What's all this fuss I hear about Russian Medaling? What's wrong with Russians wanting to hand out medals?
    Chevy Chase: That's Russian "Meddling". 'Not Russian "Medaling".
    Emily Litella: …Nevermind. 🙂

  9. SNL I love the series. I'm 35 and have seen sketches back into the 1980's. But please stop with the re uploading of old videos and clips. Even though it's your off season, and I know you need to keep YouTube traffic strong without live shows. I would love to see web exclusives like Fallon does. New and old comedians having fun with games or questions. This re uploading, not just of old clips but of clips only a couple years old makes it hard to find skits you are looking for in a list and saturates my feed with outdated comedy. You are not a second class program, you are the cream of the crop when it comes to sketch comedy. Embrace it and create new content, even in the off season. It doesn't have to be a digital short, just funny videos that are new. People aren't going to share with their friends 5-30 year old sketches.

  10. There will never be another Gilda Radner! Amazing comic, actress and women! Taken way way too soon from us!
