What Saturday Night Live skit had "a man dead, goes to heaven and asks God questions?"

I need help by Saturday! I am looking for a old Saturday Night Live skit. The skit is where a man dies and goes to heaven and he gets to ask God any questions...The skit is about him asking questions and finding out all the stuff in his life he didn't know. Very funny

What is the name of the skit?

What two actors were in it?

Is the video available on YouTube?

It was Dana Carvey and John Laroquette. He asked questions like "what's the biggest opportunity I missed?" "You couldn't handle it." "Ok, what's the 437th (?) biggest opportunity I missed?" "When you were walking on the beach that one day, there was a buried treasure, just a few feet away..."

Can't believe I know this.

Heh, I remember this one too. I believe it also had "what's the most disgusting thing I ate but didn't know it" too. It looks like sketch title was Heaven Has All The Answers.

Here's the transcript for what sharkfu was referring to, know as Heaven's Database.

The 368th biggest surprise in my life is that other people remember this sketch and liked it as much as I did.

Maybe email them and ask for it to be put in the video section of the official site sometime? It looks like they have a mix of things under the "Seasons" tab.

Thanks everyone!!! really appreciate it. Too bad there is no video clip out there...that was a funny skit.

I found an audio clip. Sounds like the sketch fell flat with the audience.

The only part that got big laughs was the buried treasure part.

*listens again*

And "big laughs" is overstating it.
