"Classic" is right. Dave Thomas does a dead-on Bob Hope impersonation as he tries to negotiate a golf course in the war-torn Middle East, with guest stars Menachem Begin (Joe Flaherty), Yasser Arafat (Eugene Levy), Golda Meir (Andrea Martin), Lola Heatherton (Catherine O'Hara), King Fahud, and Jack Niklaus (both John Candy) -- and a special appearance by Charlton Heston (Joe Flaherty), using his divine powers to negotiate a chip shot. Also on tap this week: Andrea Martin as "Betty Bain, Professional Juror"; and Count Floyd (Flaherty) hawks special stereoscopic glasses at 27 bucks a pop for the upcoming telecast of "Dr. Tongue's 3-D House of Cats."
