Sid Dithers (Eugene Levy) explains how to avoid stress. Bob Hope (Dave Thomas) stars in this week's remake of Taxi Driver. "Kanadian Korner" hosts Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis, Thomas) don their blindfolds (actually earmuffs) to play the mystery guest segment of "Name That Beer." And in the main sketch of the evening, Guy Caballero (Joe Flaherty) and Edith Prickley (Andrea Martin) envision life in the year 1984, with Orson Welles as Big Brother, the new kiddie show "Komrade Kangaroo," the "Doublethink Game Show" -- and, somehow or other, Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker (Moranis, Robin Duke). (The U.S. syndicated version of this episode replaces the Taxi Driver bit with a sketch from a later episode, "Tomorrow Today Tonight.")
