|Still a better movie than Total Recall

I had the weirdest dream last night. In my dream SCTV was a real TV station here in Hamilton. The staff, like Edith Prickly and Guy Cabolaro were real people but the actors in the skits were the actual actors. So there was an Andrea Martin and an Edith Prickly both.|
I was supposed to be in this sci-fi skit with John Candy and the skit was supposed to end with him pressing a button on a prop and the prop wou
ld do something that ended the skit. Unfortunately the prop fell apart and John Candy struggled to put it together but it wouldn't work so he switched gears and decided to be his William B. Williams character and started interviewing me as if he was guest hosting the Sammy Maudlin show because Sammy was on vacation.
He asked me to talk about the new movie I was in. I suddenly felt this panic as John Candy went off script and desperately tried to come up with a movie idea while we were live on-air. So I told him I was in an animated movie playing a Merman who was a flamboyant Elton John like character who wanted to be a human being so he could have a penis so he convinces his friend who is an eel, played by Rodney Dangerfield, to be grafted to his body as his penis. The Rodney Dangerfield eel-penis is eager to do this thinking he'll get to have sex with all these women but the Elton John like Merman is gay.
By the time I get finished describing the movie John Candy fixes the prop, presses the button and the skit ended. I walked off stage and Edith Prickly was there and I apologised for the skit going off the rails like that and she told me not to worry about it because that wasn't the worst thing to ever happen at that station.
