: Did anyone else notice that the piano player for Bill Murray's little romp in the beginning of the Special was playing the LOTM theme?
I did, Chloe! I came running into the room as it started. I believe that was Paul Schaeffer playing the piano, and the whole sequence cracked me up. Bill Murray was doing his smarmy old lounge singer, Nick, who had recently discovered he is something like 1/600th Omigali, and so has changed his name to Nick Thinblood, and gone to sing in the Omigali (read OhMyGolly!)casino. I hope no one was offended by the bit, but I loved it...especially his singing to Drew Barrymore.
I DID think they could have done a better job in picking which skits from years past to show...I couldn't believe they skipped Roseanne Roseannadanna, for one thing. But I still managed to get a few good laughs out of the show.
