Quotes

Ross Perot: Two years ago, and I have not revealed this until now for reasons I will not go into, two years ago in the middle of the night at my house in Dallas, I was awaken by a disturbance outside on my lawn so I went outside and engaged in hand to hand combat with four men and a small dog.

Well, isn't that special...
14 November 2003 | by bobrandtSee all my reviews

Not! This video isn't here to pump you up!

If this is the best Dana Carvey did on Saturday Night Live, I am no longer a Dana Carvey fan! I have obviously imagined several hilarious sketches, that are far better than what is on this video.

This is a broad presentation of Dana Carvey's characters on SNL - not a select collection the best!

How in the world could they ever think of cutting the most of "Fantasy Dinner Date with Hans & Franz" out? This has obviously been edited with someone with no knowledge of Dana Carvey's work and absolutely no sense of humor!
