Barbara Streisand popping into "Coffee Talk" is one of my favorite moments on SNL. I don't watch it religiously but I was tuned in that night. It was awesome! Like buttah!

However, Massive Head Wound Harry was a little over the top for me. Wasn't that the same episode with Linda Hamilton when Pat wanted to join a gym?

Thanks for your comment, Alan! And, yes, the Pat at the gym sketch was featured in that same Linda Hamilton episode. As for the "Harry" sketch, I only included it because of the scene-stealing dog.
