My all-time favorite moment of (muted) bluster from Candy is his reaction to the "You" feminist play at 6:24 here:

Kingfish, you know Floyd Robertson the newsreader and Count Floyd were the same character, right? Count Floyd was a weekend gig Robertson did to make ends meet -- the self-loathing Count and the alcoholic self-deluded 'serious journalist' were one really well-written package.

loved everytime they staged a fight scene and used a dummy as a double.

You know, I never knew that. I haven't seen the show in years.

Marcie Odette, ex Solid Gold Dancer is my favorite. The routine on Dusty Towne's Christmas Special is still one of my favorite things EVER

Whoever it is, I hope there's a tirteen-tirteen tie at the top.

Surprised Andrea Martin finished ahead of Catherine O'Hara, and myself, I'd move Levy up. Smart vote distribution, though. As many of us pointed out, so difficult.

everyone got votes tho, so that's kind of a nice thing.

Every one of these SCTV clips posted to advocate for one of the cast members reminded me of the brilliance of another one. So I think we call this a tie.

I love that John Candy didn't even know what Divine's voice sounded like, but just took an educated guess from pics of him.

So I can no longer feeling too silly to finally admit that I frequently play a game with my dog where I lean my face into hers, swaying back and forth while humming Dr. Tongue's 3D "doo-doot" music while she tries to bite my nose?
