A music company pitches an album of classical works that inspired the hit songs of today. A foundation to help the tragically hip solicits donations. Game show host Phil Lively meets his new neighbors. President-elect Reagan decides to name Nancy as his Vice President after Frank Sinatra recommends her for the job. For the Rocket Report, Charles Rocket interviews a daredevil cab driver. A museum guard confesses to the Mona Lisa that he has to break off their relationship. During the Weekend Update, Mary Lou James present diet tips for the stupid, and Joe Piscopo tries to scalp a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl. Dan Rather leads an investigation into why there are no female reporters at CBS.... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Weekend Update Anchor: Well, during the Senate confirmation hearings, Alexander "General" Haig -General Alexander Haig said that the MX missile is the key to our country's defense. Here, we see Mr. Haig swallowing that key. Later, when asked about the neutron bomb, he replied: "You know, I don't believe in using a weapon designed to destroy only human life. After all, part of the fun is watching the buildings blow up!"
