"I invited the whole cast [of 'Saturday Night Live'] to come up and have lunch in this big dining room that the chairman and I shared," NBC president Herbert Schlosser once recalled. "And the cooking was not nouvelle cuisine. We were used to having heavy stuff, so we had roast beef with all the trimmings. And I said, 'Bake an extra batch of chocolate chip cookies.' Well, you've never seen people eat like this -- second portions of roast beef and so on. And then the cook gave each of them a little bunch of these cookies, tied up in paper napkins so they could take them with them.
"And I remember Bill Murray told me, 'I've heard you're a good guy and I'm going to give you a noogie.' And he came over and rubbed his knuckles into my head. My God, they really were wild!"
