Molly Shannon as Sally O'Malley

If anyone proves that life begins at 50, it’s Molly Shannon's vivacious Sally O’Malley in her tight red jumpsuit. A bouffant-sporting dancer who won’t take "no" for an answer, she likes to kick, stretch, and talk tough (and frequently in rhyme).

Catchphrase: "My name is Sally O'Malley. I'm proud to say I'm 50 years old, I'm not one of those gals who likes to tell her real age. And I like to kick! Stretch! And kick! I'm 50! Fifty years old!"
