Unlike his daughter, Chris Elliott's time on ''SNL'' was not a happy one[[note]]though, to be fair, it wasn't for a lot of cast members during the show's 20th season. Janeane Garofalo quit mid-season because she felt the cast and writers were juvenile and homophobic while Michael [=McKean=], Ellen Cleghorne, Kevin Nealon, Laura Kightlinger, and the rest -- save for Adam Sandler, Creator/NormMacDonald, and Chris Farley -- were just sick of the grind of working on the show and the critics and viewers telling them they sucked and should be canceled[[/note]]. Elliott didn't have any recurring characters and only had three celebrity impressions: Anthony Edwards (as his character, Mark Greene, from the NBC medical drama ''E.R.''), Yassir Arafat, and Chris Berman.
