'''Farley's Character:''' ''(grabbing Spade, with Farley briefly dropping the teenaged girl routine)'' LAY OFF ME, I'M STARVING!

** Lucy, Adam Sandler's character, gets super upset when Kristy and Cindy joke about Michael Jackson being a child molester.
--->'''Lucy''': That's not fair! You guys already convicted him! All his charges are based on hearsay and conjenture! It's all circumstantial, anecdotal evidence!
--->'''Kristy''': ''What?''
--->'''Lucy''': I'm just telling you what I heard.
--->'''Kristy''': Do you even know what any of those words mean?
--->'''Lucy''': ...no! ''(Starts giggling)''

* From a 1993 episode, Creator/ChristopherWalken as "Ed Glosser, Trivial Psychic" a spoof of his movie ''Film/TheDeadZone'' where Walken is an office worker who can foretell events whenever he makes contact with people but they're all insignificant:

** Robert Smigel, who wrote this sketch, has explained that he'd come up with the line years before -- it was just a matter of figuring out the kind of person who would actually ''say'' it and giving it to them!

** E!'s countdown of greatest SNL moments reveals that everyone was confused by Waterston's delivery at the initial readthrough -- until he explained that he was approaching it from the perspective of [[MoneyDearBoy someone who was only in it for the money]]. Knowing this makes the sketch even funnier.


Added DiffLines:

** Also from this episode, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd9TIkbwEM8 "Wave Starter at a Baseball Game"]] (Goldblum) ''really'' wants people to appreciate his efforts.


** From the same episode, an AlternateEnding to ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' where Paxton's character and his salvage crew get tired of listening to Old Rose' story and beat her up.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/BobNewhart hosts? Why not reference the famous "Hi, Bob!" JustForFun/DrinkingGame. With Chris Farley and Adam Sandler going shot-for-shot with one another while people chastise Bob for "encouraging" people playing the game--he actively wasn't--[[HypocriticalHumor while they are unknowingly sending Farley (especially) to higher levels of drunkenness]].
** For additional context, they were standing over ''a tray'' of shot glasses. When that was exhausted, Farley reached down and ''produced an entirely new fully loaded tray of shots''.
