Weekend Update: Jane, You Ignorant Slut – SNL


– I’m station manager,
Dan Aykroyd. During the past few weeks
in Los Angeles, actor, Lee Marvin, and his
former live-in companion, Michele Triola Marvin,
have been in court to settle her claim
that he owes her half his income from the
six years they lived together. That is the subject of
tonight’s Point CounterPoint. Jane will take the pro
Michele Marvin point while I take the–
[audience groans and claps] anti Michele Triola
counterpoint. [audience claps]
Jane? – Dan, times change and so does the nature of relationships. People are reluctant to
get married these days, and looking at
divorce statistics, who can blame them. But the lack of a piece of paper does not necessarily
mean the lack of a total commitment. A woman in this
modern-day relationship may well give up all her
own personal pursuits, as Michele Marvin
claims she did, to give her full support
to her man’s career. And Michele Marvin
is just asking that the courts recognize
that reality. Dan, there’s an old saying, behind every successful man
there’s a woman, a loving, giving, caring woman. But you wouldn’t know
about that, Dan, because there’s no old saying about what’s behind
a miserable failure. [cheers and applause] – Jane, you ignorant slut. [cheers and applause] Bagged out, dried up slunk meat like you and Michele Triola
know the rules. If you want a contract,
sign on the dotted line. Oh, but let’s all shed a tear
for poor Michele Triola. There was only testimony
that she had sexual intercourse over 40 times with another man while
living with actor Lee Marvin. But I suppose that sort
of fashionable promiscuity means nothing to
someone like you, Jane, who hops from bed to bed with the frequency of
a cheap, HAM radio. [laughter] But hell hath no fury
like a woman scorned. And Michele Triola,
like a screeching, squealing, rapacious swamp sow, is after actor Lee Marvin’s last three million dollars. I guess what you and Michele
are saying is that when you’re on your backs,
the meter is running. Well, please spare us gals, and tell us the rates
at the top. Then we can choose
which two-bit tarts and bargain basement
sluts to shack up with. – That’s the news, good night
and have a pleasant tomorrow.

  1. As funny as this is, it's just depressing to realize SNL would never have the balls to do this today.

  2. Thin-skinned millennial SJW liberals have almost killed comedy. It’s good that videos like this remain to show the younger generations how hilarious things used to be.

  3. There was a variation on the once when Dan said "Jane, you ignorant misguided slut!" added an extra word to it.

  4. The talking is so monotone on purpose and thats what i love. The office brought this up with the depression episode “Dwight you ignorant slut”

  5. EPIC………..EPIC……..EPIC………..EPIC……….EPIC. I have no other words to describe SNL's orginal cast from 1975 to 1979. One of my favorite episodes.

  6. I've often thought that when you start looking at talent over the long history of SNL, Dan Aykroyd would be at or near the top. His delivery here is flawless as is that of Jane Curtin. And Jane is one good looking girl to boot.

  7. Every time you watch this clip, some cry baby loser 27 something millennial bumming off their parents gets offended.

  8. funny that youtubers never puts this in their top ten but every time i bring up this skit its the one everyone knows my guess is they think its too offensive nowadays.

  9. cannot emphasize how radical this was, unexpected, drop dead hilarious…nothing like this ever seen, SNL sketch, 1979, comedy and news together…what? aykroyd sold it…he was so serious and into character…his delivery was so spot on meticulous…jane killed it as well…

  10. And the same comedy and commentary applies to women today, except now men are giving women the stiff arm and telling them to fend for themselves.

  11. I remember seeing this Live in the 70s in a houseful of young people. We were all rolling in the aisles over this. Then we were Tripping on it, all night long lol.

  12. I just noticed how Dan end the sketch angry, but Jane, having been called a slut and a whore, has almost no emotion on her face. Both such hilarious character actors.

  13. Jane actually raised the bar here and people thought that Dan would deliver a ho-hum response but then he took the bar even higher!

  14. Oh that’s when feelings were allowed to be hurt. There would be violent riots in the streets if that was aired today!

  15. this was EPIC… you couldn't nearly get away with this kinda thing these days. Man o' man… wish things were like this still – sigh. I guess that's what makes classics, well.. classic !
