A frequent commentator on Weekend Update, Gilda Radner's Emily Litella is a bit hard of hearing -- which may be why she’s so worked up about issues like "violins (violence) on television," "youth in Asia (euthanasia)," and "the Eagle (Equal) Rights Amendment." The job of correcting Emily often went to anchor Jane Curtin, although sometimes the burden fell on co-anchor Chevy Chase (whom she called "Cheddar Cheese.") She would always sweetly take back her previous statements by saying simply, "Never mind."
Memorable quote: "What is all this fuss I hear about the Supreme Court decision on a 'deaf' penalty? It's terrible! Deaf people have enough problems as it is!"
