Those hosers Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas) are still talking about snow chains, their topic from last week's "Kanadian Korner"; and there's also a promo for Phil Donahue's interview with the Pope (Tony Rosato). In the new investigative reporting show "60/20," Earl Camembert (Eugene Levy) interviews prison doctor Robert Angly (Dave Thomas), who suggests that it's the coffee that's making Eugene nervous. (And, the next morning -- musical cue -- it turn's out he's right!) Elsewhere, Guy Caballero (Joe Flaherty) pleads for financial contributions when SCTV's satellite begins decaying. And, of course, there's "The Lone Ranger Show," hosted by the Masked Rider of the Plains (Moranis) and his faithful Indian co-host Tanto (Flaherty), with guest star Wishbone (Thomas) from Rawhide. (The U.S. syndicated version of this episode includes material from earlier shows.)
