2. Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker

Air Date: 5/8/93
Starring: Christina Applegate, Chris Farley, Phil Hartman, David Spade, Julia Sweeney

The skits where cast members can barely keep it together don't always turn out to be the best, but the first "Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker" bit with Chris Farley is so hilarious that we'd be upset if his fellow actors weren't losing their shit. David Spade and Christina Applegate are laughing pretty much the entire time as Farley chides them for everything they've ever done, and that if they continue down their current path, they are going to end up living in a van down by the river.

Farley is on screen for all of 10 seconds before Spade and Applegate start to laugh (Frankly, we can't blame them. There's no way we would be able to keep it together either). Then, a few minutes later, one of the best moments in SNL history occurs: Farley trips and falls right through the coffee table. Apparently, it all happened by accident. In fact, you can tell that the moment surprised even Farley, who breaks character for about a half second and begins to crack up. However, he then goes right back into his motivational speaker routine, as the rest of the cast looks on in total astonishment. Man, we miss Chris Farley.
