I remember that one with Dan Akyroyd. I was only in my single digits when SNL first aired in 1975, but I watched it faithfully as a kid. I still remember a lot of the skits.

He gets enlarged from radiation and ends up getting together with the black cleaning lady (Garrett Morris) who they sent in to mop up a "spill". Lorraine Newman was the distraught Roslyn Carter. There were some good moments in the Billy Crystal years, but I think the best cast other than the original was the Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, etc. years.
