Mine is the Psychology exam Chevy Chase gives Richard Pryor in the first season. Racially charged, edgy and finny as hell. The last line "Dead Honkey" with Pryor's eye twitching is great.

The sketch were Will Farrell is a doctor who lost Molly Shannon and Chris Parnell's baby and Tim Meadows was Dr. Poop.

In terms of repeating sketches and characters, Christopher Walken as the Continental always was funny.

There are so many, but I think none ever made me laugh quite as much as the Weekend Update segment where John Belushi talked about how March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, and then explains how that only applies to the US, and gets into more and more wild explanations of which animal March behaves like in different countries.

Lots of the vintage fake commercials, too: New Shimmer, Quarry, and so on.

"Deep Thoughts" by Jack Handy

"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time for no good reason."

These really worked as they were usually aired later in the show between 12:30 to 1 when you were really tired and punchy and had to think "Wait, what did that say?"

The soft, easy music. The Phil Hartman intro. Handey's voice. Often, they were just one sentence, but so odd and hilarious.

Celebrity Jeopardy is the most enduringly funny, but a close second is the Old GLory Robot Insurance commercial.

I was definitely going to say Celebrity Jeopardy. The fact that I have twice looked online and watched all the episodes (taking over an hour each time) should tell you how much I love all those skits.

Second for me is Jack Foley, the man who lives in a van DOWN BY THE RIVER!

Is he Matt Foley's twin brother? lol

Stefon would be my favourite character of late, edging out Keith Morrison and the old man news reporter. I guess I like Bill Hader.

All-time favourite skit is a tricky one. AWARulz had a great pick. I loved Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer, and anything with Tarzan, Tonto, and Frankenstein, and I watched the Best of Eddie Murphy VHS tape a billion times.

Maybe Super Bass-o-matic '76? Wow, that's terrific bass!

Stuart Smalley (Al Franken), Jackie Rogers Jr (Martin Short), Bill Swerski's Superfans (Joe Mantegna), Coffee Talk (Mike Meyers), and Doug Henning (Rich Hall)...loved so many others, though.

I'll add Bill Brasky.

Not because any of the sketches themselves were the funniest things I've seen on SNL, but because the joke behind them has lived on in my life. Within one of my circles of friends, anytime anybody brags about anything, one of us will eventually say something like "he's a 9 foot tall beastman who showers in vodka and feeds his babies shrimp scampi."

Almost everything John Belushi did back then was gold - from the Olympia Restaurant ("Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger. No coke, pepsi."), Samurai Delicatessen, etc... I still pull those clips up from time to time.

Brian Fellows' Safari Planet always made me laugh.

Celebrity Jeopardy was always golden, Farrell and Hammond's exchanges were great, but my all time favorite was the one with Tom Hanks. "Could someone help Tom Hanks, he's stuck in a dry cleaning bag..."

I remembered laughing forever at that skit when it was aired - thanks for linking.

I also love the whole Nightline/Buckwheat's Been Shot saga and the Sinatra Group skit where Hartman is Sinatra and Sting was guest starring as Billy Idol.

I always liked Dog Show with Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon. It was so bizarre that it made me laugh every time.

For a one-time skit nothing beats "more cowbell". For repeat performances, I always liked Celebrity Jeopardy and the skits with Will Farrell and Sherri Oterri as cheerleaders. I always had big laughs when I saw those guys on the air.
