My Favorite SNL Moment
Posted March 12, 2004 at 11:28:39 AM by Bean

Will Ferrell as Harry Caray, aired 5/17/97:

Harry Caray: Hey! Let me ask, what's your favorite planet?
Jeff Goldblum: Well... I, uh, don't have a favorite. I find them all fascinating. They're all part of a ...
Harry Caray: [interrupting] Mine's the sun. Always has been. I like it because it's like, the King of Planets.
Jeff Goldblum: Well, actually Harry, it's not a planet. It's a star.
Harry Caray: Well, planet or star, when that thing burns out, we're all gonna be dead.
Jeff Goldblum: Well, that's true. But it's not gonna burn out for a very long time.
Harry Caray: [crossing fingers] I hope not. [pause] Hey! Doctor, have you ever seen an eclipse?
Jeff Goldblum: Uh, yeah, I've seen many.
Harry Caray: You know, if you stare at it head on, it'll burn your eyes out.
Jeff Goldblum: [breaking character and smiling] Well, it's best not to stare at the sun during an eclipse.
Harry Caray: But it's hard not to. I once took a pair of binoculars and stared at the sun for over an hour.
Harry Caray: Hey! Now Ken, We all know that the moon is not made of green cheese.
Jeff Goldblum: [cracking up] Yes, that's true, Harry.
Harry Caray: But what if it were made of barbecue spare ribs. Would you eat it then?
Jeff Goldblum: [confused] What?
Harry Caray: I know I would. Heck, I'd have seconds. Then polish it off with a tall, cool Budweiser.
Jeff Goldblum: [blank stare]
Harry Caray: I would do it.
Jeff Goldblum: [just playing along] Yeah.
Harry Caray: Would you?
Jeff Goldblum: [cracking up and looking at the audience] I'm confused.
Harry Caray: It's a simple question, doctor. Would ya eat the moon if it were made of ribs?
Jeff Goldblum: I, uh... I don't... I don't know how to answer that, Harry.
Harry Caray: It's not rocket science. Just say yes and we'll move on.
Harry Caray: Hey! What about this Mad Cow Disease?
Jeff Goldblum: [completely cracking up] What about it?
Harry Caray: Well, it was here for a while, then it went away. Your thoughts?
Jeff Goldblum: Yes, yes, it was in the news for a while and then it disappeared from the news.
Harry Caray: Good point! [pause] Gee, I hope I never get it. [long pause] Hey! What about this? If you could choose between being the top scientist in your field, or getting Mad Cow Disease, what would it be?
Jeff Goldblum: [pretending to think about it] Well, of course I would choose to be the top scientist in my field.
Harry Caray: [grasping his hand] Oh good! I was worried you would choose Mad Cow!
