Holy crap - I just had an epiphany watching him dispose of the trash. I am the anal retentive chef.
Thank you for posting this! I've been looking for Phil's Anal Retentive characters (there was also a gardener, wasn't there?) for years. Are there more?
Talk about obscure references. I use "now that's some garbage you can live with" all the time and receive nothing but blank stares.P.S. I love and miss Phil Hartman
I miss Phil Hartman. :(Such a genius.
The Anal Retentive skits are some of the best ever! The world for sure has a void without Phil Hartman. Oddly enough, I remember where I was when I heard he died!
You're the best, Cary..thank you so much..gotta go,I've got something in my eye *sniff*
I love Phil Hartman!
Cary,Are you a mind reader? Do I have to buy a tinfoil hat to ward off your brainrays? LOL Your tagline at the top about Black Betty..my daughter, niece and I were JUST talking about this song! GMTA,huh? LOLRhonda
Ahh...when SNL was really good. Enjoyed that Cary.
OMG! That's one of my all-time favorite SNL skits! I often use references from the anal retentive chef and get that deer in headlights response.... but I'm used to it.
Amy, I use that all the time, too. KEEP PHIL ALIVE!!yeah, I get lots of blanks stares.I miss Phil. What a loss.
Glad everyone liked it. I did too. Uncarved - I'll keep looking. It's not on the SNL/Best Of Phil Hartman DVD.Rhonda - ha, Black Betty is always on my mind.
Not a video, but there's a transcript of the skit for Anal Retentive Gene as a carpenter at this site:http://snltranscripts.jt.org/89/89acarpenter.phtmlHe also did a sketch called "Fishing with the Anal Retentive Sportsman," but I didn't find a video or transcript of that one.Hartman was definitely a one of a kind. I miss him too.
