(Chase's brief stay is made briefer still by a pratfall injury that forces him to participate in two episodes from a hospital bed.) In Chase's absence, Jane Curtin earns her comedic spurs as anchor of "Weekend Update," a segment that remains a high point-especially when Curtin tangles with Gilda Radner's Emily Litella ("Never mind!"). Other memorable bits include a presidential debate between Jimmy Carter (Dan Aykroyd) and Gerald Ford (Chase); an inventive drag race between Aykroyd and host Eric Idle; the Coneheads; John Belushi's samurai routines; and Murray's plea for audience support. One classic episode features host Paul Simon singing "Still Crazy After All These Years" in a turkey suit and also joining musical guest George Harrison for duets on Simon's "Homeward Bound" and Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun". The season's other hosts include wild-and-crazy Steve Martin (who does the deed twice); Lily Tomlin; a 14-year-old Jodie Foster; 80-year-old Ruth Gordon; Candice Bergen; Buck Henry (twice); Ralph Nader; football great Fran Tarkenton; and Dick Cavett. In addition to Harrison, musical performers include the Band; George Benson; Joe Cocker and his spastic twin (Belushi spoofing Cocker); Ry Cooder; the Kinks; James Taylor; Brian Wilson; and Frank Zappa.
