So You Think You Can Dance?

The following transcript is from Saturday Night Live in 1997 when Colin Quinn took over for Norm McDonald on Weekend Update.
"You know how you go to your favorite bar, and your local bartender isn't there? You ask, "Where's Jeff?" "Jeff no longer works here, I'm Steve." And you're thinking, "Hey, who's this idiot? I like Jeff." But you still want your drink? And even though Steve doesn't mix your drink the same way you're used to, like Jeff, you still like the same bar, you don't want to have to go to a different bar. And even Steve might feel kinda bad because Jeff trained him. Jeff showed him how to work the cash register, where the tonic was on the soda gun, who tips, who doesn't....Well...I'm Steve. What can I get you? [cheers and applause]...Thank ah!...All right....Thank you."
So, it's not that severe. Nikki is coming back. She is just taking a two month hiatus to help train the next generation of suckers. I am Dan. I live over at this blog and like Nikki, was once a former teacher who tried to show 7 year-olds the genius of Colin Meloy.

I hopefully will do a better job than Colin Quinn did, but then again, there are no guarantees.

Nice meeting you.

I noticed that you didn't link to the "sucker" organization on Indie Don't Dance. Hmm... Some people call us "suckers," while others like to use the term "heroes."
