Storyline

The comedy segment is a local newscast during sweeps week, filled with titillating stories; Teresa Ganzel plays the co-anchor, and Pope John Paul II is the weatherman. Johnny asks Eddie Murphy what he was doing 10 years ago; Murphy says he was stealing bikes in Merrick, Long Island. He is still close to his friends from that period; several are in the audience. He talks about "Beverly Hills Cop 2", and complains about some of the harsh reviews. He also talks about his music career, and his upcoming second album. He then talks about how his success has changed his life, and says that he tries to be restrained about spending money. He says that he isn't currently romantically involved with anyone, though there are probably a few women watching who might have a differing opinion. A clip from "Beverly Hills Cop 2" is shown. Ellen DeGeneres does a stand-up comedy routine. Jane Leeves talks about coming from the small town of East Grinstead in Sussex, and moving to L.A. and how different it... Written by lenab9011

Quotes

Eddie Murphy: I guess you don't think - when you're stealin' a bike, you just think, "Get that bike and leave." You don't work on the chain, and go, "You know, maybe one day I might be on The Tonight Show!"
