SNL Jeopardy Skit with Punchline of Letter Becoming Middle Finger?
February 16, 2005 9:36 AM   Subscribe

I'm trying to remember a particular Saturday Night Live spoof of Jeopardy featuring the always hilarious portrayal of Sean Connery. My workmates and I are trying to recall how he drew his answer to Final Jeopardy so that at first it was a letter (?), but then upon the full reveal it looked like a drawing of a middle finger. This is my first post, BTW... :-)

Are you perhaps talking about the one where the answer is "Write a number." Sean Connery puts a "V.' Alex is stunned that technically that's a roman numeral, and correct. His wager? "Suck it Trebek" with the V being the top of the k in "suck." transcript

ALongDecember, we figured that one out, but my friend and I think that there was one where the bottom of the answer finished a sketch of a middle finger being stuck up. Maybe not... Thanks, though.

And I will have to cull through the videos from nitsuj's link when I get home, which I bet will have the answer one way or another. Thanks for that and Alt F4's link (close, but not it either)...

Found it! AFter searching some, it's in this transcript I found in the site from ALongDecember's post. Now if I could only get the video in nitsuj's link to download, I could actually see the answer... Thanks again, everyone!

Sean Connery: Only on accountability!

Uh, that's "Only on account of villany!".

driko: In the transcript you noted, there is no reveal. It goes directly to the hand drawing. You can get the file from my site. The hand shows up around 5:30.

Thanks, biscuit man, that definitely disproved our "reveal" theory...
