Live From New York, It's a Census Sketch!

Tina Fey, whose new series 30 Rock debuts tonight on NBC, says her favorite Saturday Night Live sketch was one called "Census." Here's a snippet from the transcript.

Census-Taker: Mr. Leonard? I'm with the U.S. Census Bureau. We sent you a Census form, but you failed to return it to us.

Mr. Leonard: My mail is piled up like crazy.

Census-Taker: Yeah. Well, I just need to fill out this Census form with you. Uh ... how many people live in this residence?

Mr. Leonard: Oh, boy ... good question. I'm bad with numbers. Maybe 80.

Census-Taker: 80 people live in this apartment?

Mr. Leonard: Seems high, doesn't it? Not 80. How about 4? I don't know... I'm so bad at guestimating...

Census-Taker: Well, just take your time, and count.

Mr. Leonard: Okay... there's me... my wife... our plants... we have some candy bars...

Census-Taker: Well, you know, we don't count candy bars or plants.

Mr. Leonard: Well, then, there's just the two of us. Boy, I really overshot with the 80!
