** [[AndYouWereThere The ending]], followed by the band playing [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilton_Place_Street_Band "Disco Lucy"]] (Unfortunately the NBC version cuts that scene short).

** There are lots of great bits in that sketch: Jack Woltz...err...Leonard Bernstein and his ''Series/MisterEd'' obsession, Caballero getting shot hundreds of times and surviving mostly unscathed, the whole "network war" thing, and Ugazzo Vision is a very accurate portrayal of cable TV circa 1981.

* The Zontar episode. It turns out that Bonar Bain ([[DifferentStrokes Conrad's brother]]), a new cast member, is working for Zontar, who seeks to [[spoiler:abduct the staff at SCTV due to how funny they are because of his obsession with television]], and he does this by sending ''cabbages'' to possess the staff. [[spoiler:Thankfully, [[CloudCuckoolander Gerry Todd is immune to this]].]]

** Mel became a regular recurring character and ''SCTV Boogie'' underwent a number of name changes, until they settled for "Mel's Rock Pile." Mel reappeared in 2015 in an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROGI87hc-g4 outro clip]] for Canada's ''other'' pride and joy, [[Music/{{Rush}}]], introducing them as a "little band" and saying "three guys does not a rock band make." Rush have had other SCTV characters introduce songs on their tours (Count Floyd in 1984 and Bob and Doug in 2007), but this one is arguably funnier when you think about the meta; Eugene Levy and Geddy Lee (Rush's lead singer/bassist/keyboardist) may or may not live in the same ritzy neighborhood in Toronto, depending on what source you're reading. Mel of all people should know about Rush's success, since "he" lives in the same neighborhood as the lead singer!

* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqagQiKQk50 Muley's Roundhouse]]'', a SubvertedKidsShow with Harold Ramis playing a grouchy, sad old railroad switch operator who had dreams of being a military pilot, but was grounded for being "tetched." Also, he hates the Bolsheviks.

Added DiffLines:

** The Yiddish argument the brothers Bittman have. The ''entire audience'' apparently understands Yiddish, because when Skip says something particularly rude, they all gasp in shock.
