  •  My favorite Aykroyd/Carter ... (0+ / 0-)

    ... is the bit where he talks about how when, someday, America is screwed by its dependency on foreign oil, the nation will turn to him and say "Jimmy, you were right.  We should have switched to renewable and domestic energy sources.  Won't you help us now, Jimmy?"  And he says that his reply will then be "Honk off, bozos, you had your chance."

    That bit is funny because it has the element of surprise, of unexpected contrast: we know the real Jimmy Carter would never say such a thing if his country truly needed his help in a crisis.

    But yes, Aykroyd was outstanding.
