50. Supreme Court Spot Check

Original Airdate: April 17th, 1976

When NBC's beautifully named network censor Herminio Traviesas first heard about this sketch from Season One, he actually thought Chevy Chase and Jane Curtin would be having actual sex on camera. In reality, they merely rolled around while the Supreme Court stood by telling them what they could and couldn't do – "forcibly remove Dwyane's hand from underneath the blankets," Dan Aykroyd rules. It might be the show's greatest commentary on the nexus of sex and politics.
