Comments

Darin Osborne : Those four words made TV history, and all because of Dan's flawless delivery.

Thomas Crown : Back when SNL cared about comedy and not politics.

Dazlidorne Jenkins : Hops from bed to bed with the frequency of a cheap ham radio!

D RolyPolyMan : Dried up Slunk Meat? Rapacious Swamp Sows? Brilliant and Funny at the same time.

Tflexxx02 : This was based on a segment on "60 Minutes" in the 1970s called, "Point-Counterpoint", with Shana Alexander and James Kilpatrick. With or without that reference, the sketch still holds up well more than 40 years later.

bluemonkey223 : Anytime Jane tries to make a point in life, she is hit with a recording of Dan Ackroyd. Lol.

Rudy Juarez : I miss the days when people had a sense of humor.

Daniel from Texas : Damn, forgot how hot 1970's Jane Curtin was.

INTERNETWORK : I always loved how, after his barrage of eviscerating insults, she smiles at the camera and says "That's the news..."

Joseph McDermott : _"with the frequency of a cheap ham radio"_ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Ken Steiger : When SNL was actually funny

Taube Victor : Wow, everyone would be fired today !!! Funny skit...

bryan allan abian : That frigging line killed me ๐Ÿ˜† Why can't SNL stay like this? My god!

Keith Purdue : This was a brilliant ongoing bit, never equalled.

Thomas Boner : Almost 40 years later and this is still funny as hell!

Noah : Depression? Isnโ€™t that just a fancy word for feeling bummed out?

dopamining : Many people today, while paradoxically claiming to be 'woke', will find this incredibly offensive. I really miss this kind of intelligent irony.

Curtis Donihoo : Jane is kind of hot

Number Runner : ....lmfao...."hop from bed to bed with the frequency of a cheap ham radio"....

Tweety Bird : In 1975 I was in gr. 10 and watched George Carlin host the first show! It was fantastic, and then went down the toilet somewhere around 1985? Can't remember we were all stoned back then, and now it is legal!!! Should be a skit? PS edit: When John Belushi was on stage with Joe Cocker copying him, it was hilarious. So 75-80 was the best!

Tommy Hill : Screeching, squealing, rapacious swamp sow.

foxstar612 : And another skit that could never fly today

Jessi Duffour : I love the professional Newscaster quality style they aired their grievances in.

D Gray : So SNL started out as a comedy show?

5jerry1 : ~ The 1975 - 1979 seasons were *GOLD!*

Matt Foster : God I miss that SNL cast

Shmueli : This triggered over 400 people

random person : This is comedy gold

gutz1981 : "When you're on your back's, the meter is running!" Ha ha.

John Corbin : Ackroyd was brilliant.

Doug Finlayson : SNL was funny a long time ago

canada joe : When they're on their backs, the meters running.

zman8184 : They both make good points.

None None : Dan Aykroyd. Delivery, profesionalism, and comedy.

David Gibson : One of the funniest bits in TV history.

BeTheMonsterOrBeDevoured : This could not be more relevant!

Don Johnson : Awesome. We snuck out of our rooms late to watch the adult shows like this!!! Then they would play the national anthem and show a flag. Then snow...... because that concluded there regular scheduled program.โœŒ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ OLD SCHOOL. BOOM

Brandon Hill : God, Jane was a fox.

Ksjeff : I could not stop laughing. โ€œRapacious swamp sowsโ€ - totally original and totally hysterical.

Don Moore : Wow - I haven't listened closely to the dialog in this skit for many years. Aykroyd nailed it with speed and accuracy. Bravo!

Bob Smith : Yeah. That's back when it was funny and stuff like this was cutting edge because it hadn't been done to death. The other thing was - at this point in time - 60 Minutes had a Point Counter Point thing at the end. I remember that at one time - the Conservative Guy and the Liberal Woman switched up - and no one seemed to notice. After that, 60 Minutes stopped doing that piece. .

theo vee : Snl is unwatchable..in 2018

Dana Myers : "frequency of a cheap ham radio" LOL

Tobi Makkura : Holy shit, savagry from the 70's still savage today

Brian Mouland : Compared to the trash which passes for journalism today this seems almost professional

AE Conn : Who else only knows about this line because of the office?

The Future Is Here : Back when SNL was cutting-edge, creative, funny and worth watching

Carl Thomas : This bit and The Bass-o-matic are two of my all time favorite Dan Aykroyd classics ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
