Emily Litella was a fictional character played by comedian Gilda Radner in a series of appearances on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
Love Anthony Crispino - was Emily Litella the basis of that character or something from your improv days pre-SNL?
Sorry, mixed up my threads. As Emily Litella used to say, “Never mind!”
Wasn't there an SNL Emily Litella bit about "Veterinarian's Day." No? You sure? Never mind.
Mary Landrieu should call her bill to re-grandfather canceled insurance plans the "Emily Litella Bill."
Ah,the first appearance of Emily Litella, not on Update but on Looks at Books
Any Rosanne Rosannadanna . . . it's always SOMETHING . . . or Emily Litella . . . Never mind.
I can totally picture Gilda Radner's character Emily Litella going off on how lawnmakers should have nothing to do with govern…
You know what? Just because I want to hear Emily Litella does not mean I'm a scumbag who wants to hurt other human beings or who would think it's funny if other people do. I just think Gilda Radner is funny; and, since she was on Saturday Nigh Live for years, as well as in comedy films and she made records and did stand up acts, apparently, I am not the only person to ever think so. Anyone who thinks that me wanting to hear her get things a little wrong and go off on a tangent means I would hurt someone else on purpose can just so bite me. I'm very hurt myself, by anyone thinking I am that person. I'm going back to bed.
Having SNL flashbacks... imagining Gilda Radner doing Emily Litella... "what's all this about reptile disfunction?"
Just watched the opening gala of the B's, no banners? Oh wait, I saw that the other night in The Windy City. In the words of Emily Litella, aka the great Gilda Radner, never mind!
- I think you mean Emily Litella. Roseanne Roseannadanna used the ‘if it’s not one thing, it’s another…’ bit. Man I’m old. :)
Ryan Braun should have just done an Emily Litella
Emily Litella used to get elicited all the time ... oh ... never mind ;-)

Emily Litella: "What's all this fuss I hear about Sea Questering juries? Why, Sea Quest is a terrible show!"
The penultimate sentence is hilarious. Emily Litella lives.
.. For the record, "never mind" were the words of Emily Litella not Roseanne Roseannadanna. My 2 cents ;)
Anyone remember Emily Litella? Gilda Radner? SNL original cast? O.K., if ya do, listening to the radio, I heard a commercial about a benefit for wounded warriors. For some reason, I thought of Emily hearing "wounded lawyers." Imagine her rant about that...and then that look: What? Oh, never mind...
How much more interesting life can be when you start hearing things the way Emily Litella did- Brandon was going to the store for tonic water and Don heard 'pond scum'- yum, yum
Forgive me, I read this headline *Women on the Front Lines of Turkey Protests* and thought of Emily Litella.
Emily Litella from the grave, for sure. I kept waiting for the "nevermind" that never happened.

I know. If I could find the skit in YouTube I would. Emily Litella, Gilda Radner, was the character.
Now hearing that Port Rupert fire may just be a building fire. To quote Emily Litella, "never mind".
Funny Emily Litella moment at city council meeting.
These riots in Turkey make me wish that Emily Litella (aka Gilda Radner) was still alive. (What's all this about rioting turkeys.)
Emily Litella, if you don’t recall, was Gilda Radner’s wonderful Saturday Night Live character who ended all her wonky, off-kilter diatribes by saying — when corrected — “Never mind.”
.Oh. In the word of Emily Litella, never mind.
Don't you miss Emily Litella? She'd be all, like, "What's all this I hear about a couple of chickens bombing the Boston Marathon?"
Thank you for info. I would have gone all Emily Litella on this story. You saved me from
Animal's disregard: I think I hear Emily Litella (Gilda Radnor) saying, "never mind..."

Emily LItella on it's always something.
God bless Emily Litella, patron saint of the disputatious.

As Emily Litella said, that's different, never mind.

Oh well, as Emily Litella used to say: "Nevermind."
What's all the fuss I keep hearing about 'endangered feces?' . Emily Litella: What's all this FUSS I keep hearing... about endangered feces? Now, that's outrageous!! Why -- why are FECES endangered?! How can you POSSIBLY run out of such a thing?! Why -- why, just look around you, you can see it ALL OVER the place!! Besides, who wants to SAVE THAT, anyway?! My goodness, where would we KEEP it?! It's DANGEROUS, especially in the Summer!! Then -- then, it could REALLY hit the fan!!
What's all this talk about the St Louis Cardinals holding a conclave in Rome? Shouldn't they be playing Spring Training Baseball? Oh, wait. That's the other cardinals. Never mind. For Gilda Radner/Emily Litella. Miss you.
I scare myself. Working on my book project, and suddenly, my disc drive is gone. Poof. Panic. Scramble, Nothing, Panic, Reboot, Panic. I have stuff backed up, but panic nonetheless. Check the plug in back of the drive. Good. Panic more. I hooked up another drive the other day, maybe conflict? 86 new drive. Still Phfft. PANIC. Collect head, institute rational thought. Checked connection at COMPUTER side. FireWire cord came half out when installed new drive the other day. Plugged it back in all the way, errant drive remounted. Emily Litella time.
Emily Litella's not shy about her opinions.
This sounds like Gilda Radner doing Emily Litella. Jane Curtain would explain in the most caustic way she could muster. Emily would say, "Well, thats very different. Nevermind."
In the words of SNL's Emily Litella... "Never mind..."
Looks like Emily Litella is alive and well, '. never mind". Thank you Gilda Radner.
I know I've told you before but I so so love your avatar. Emily Litella always makes me laugh.
Also any review that seems to have been written by Emily Litella
Emily Litella's singing great these days.
I've just been informed that the Weasley family is English and that they don't live in a shoe. (in Emily Litella style) Nevermind.
Me neither but I feel like Emily Litella on this thread.
(Putting on my best Emily Litella outfit) Never mind.
Great. Now I can’t stop thinking about Biebs as Emily Litella.
Headline today recalls Emily Litella: What's this I hear about a steroid headed for Earth? Don't we have enough PED sports scandals?
Ookay, so I just checked the current forecast and, despite my attempt at "humor" in my previous post, I now echo the words of the late, great Gilda Radner as Emily Litella when I say: "Never Mind!". It does look like we're in for some nasty conditions. PLEASE, PLEASE be safe out there. And to all a good night!
Where is Emily Litella when you need her? (Nevermind...)
Wishing Gilda Radner were around so Emily Litella could wonder why all the talk about the NRA -- The National Raffle Association.
Gilda Radner’s Dream Gilda Radner is best known as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live. As one of the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” she created lovable characters like Rosanne Rosannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. Gilda’s astonishing career was cut short when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. Joanna Bull, Gilda’s cancer psychotherapist, introduced her to cancer support groups. Recognizing how integral the support experience was to her treatment, Gilda’s dream was to develop a community where anyone with cancer would receive the kind of support she had found. In her best-selling book It’s Always Something, Gilda wrote about her experience living with cancer. She spoke of establishing such a support community in New York when she felt better and said, “There should be a thousand of them.” Gilda’s ovarian cancer was diagnosed too late for effective treatment and she died in 1989. Following her death, Gilda’s husband, actor and comedian Gene Wilder, J ...

Typography of the day. Exploring the Ample Hills Creamery website, I misread the ingredients of one flavor as "Mulled apple cider sorbet sweetened with maple syrup, spiced with cinnamon, ginger and doves." My eyesight is for the birds.
At least Emily Litella was deaf: what's these folks' excuse?
Great post Cindy. It clarifies that kids can pray in schools if they rant too.
I just read the Rachel Maddow blog and it had a story about a group of protestors from a church in North Carolina who marched to the school board's offices because they wanted kid to have the right to pray voluntarily in school, only to be told that students CAN pray voluntarily. They just can't be LED in prayers. Hearing that, they realized it was a case of simple misunderstanding. The blog likened it to Gilda Radner's SNL character Miss Emily Litella and linked to one of the skits where she was complaining about the lack of violins on television. I watched the skit and it definitely made me remember why I'd loved Gilda so much. We need someone like her again in today's world.
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general in the military. This is a snot-nose twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership: he hasn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon. So guess what---next they make him the "beloved leader" of North Korea. Oh, crap! I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing here in the USA. We took an arrogant community organizer who has never worn a uniform and made him Commander-in-Chief; a guy who has never had a real job, worked on a budget or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and made him the leader of the USA. I'm sorry I brought this up. Never mind. FPV U S M C
Seems a few people think I make mountains out of molehills on the issue of this creeping Dominionism. Maybe instead of letting the majority of it slide, I should start posting all the instances of it that come across my feed and flooding your walls with the examples I see of it pretty much daily. Would that help change minds? Probably not, but denying it's happening wouldn't be quite so easy.
You know those sweat balls.Lol miss this funny chick on snl
Hey, lots of bad shots hit today, but ... as Emily Litella used to tell us on Saturday Night Live, "Never mind!"
Heroic Christian activists rally to demand a right they already have:
We got into this business because we love bikes, so we understand how important it is to have the right bike for the lifestyle we live. Buying a used bike can be a little nerve-wracking. You aren’t sure of what you are getting, and you certainly don’t want to get stuck with a previous owner’s proble...
I was just thinking, Emily Litella probably could've done a good editorial on SNL about Al Jarreau taking over Current TV.
Students can already pray in school, as long as they do so voluntarily and on their own time. There’s a one-minute...
The Supreme Court never banned all prayer from public schools, a fact that escaped one N.C. church.
Oh, wait! Kids are allowed to pray in school? Forget we said anything.
NHL media: please practice your best Emily Litella, just in case.
Tax Guru, Emily Litella says, "Hire Tex? Just who is Tex? Oh, never mind." Blog post on fiscal cliff tax law changes.
Cannot believe how many people call this the physical cliff | Emily Litella Lives! LOL ;>
"What's all this talk about the Physical Cliff"-Emily Litella.
Why do our DC "betters" insist on acting like they're playing the big top for PT Barnum? This is "serious" like Emily Litella was serious
I wish Gilda Radner were still with us. I would love to hear Emily Litella's rant about *** Burgers Syndrome.
Someone is channeling Gilda Radner's "Emily Litella" character from SNL 30 years ago!
Emily Litella wants to know what all the fuss is about Cider Monday.
(my Mom and Kevin Francis Finn may be the only ones to fully appreciate this) Emily Litella: "Whats all this about Haim Saban on television?" Jane Curtain: "Emily, thats NICK Saban." Emily Litella: "Oh, nevermind."
In the words of Emily Litella (you're young enough, you might have to google it) "That's different."

Emily Litella wants to know what's all the fuss over bats with babies?
I corrected myself, but thought about doing it wrong on purpose. success = Emily Litella || fail = troll. Format issues
Emily Litella wonders why the Gazan people allow themselves to be led by Lamas. No on knows if she means Tibetan priests or Fernando.
Today's Emily Litella moment: Seeing a headline that Angus King will caucus with the Democrats. I'm thinking, "Who cares if the guitarist from AC/DC is a Democrat?" Oops. That would be Angus Young. Never mind.
Do y'all remember, Gilda Radner's character on SNL's Weekly Update, Emily Litella? She was the little old lady who was the hard of hearing Editorial Correspondent that appeared with Chevy Chase and Jane Curtain. LOL...she would call Chevy Chase."Cheddar Cheese." Anyway, do you remember this funny episode? Emily Litella: What’s all this fuss I’ve been hearing about the 1976 presidential erection? Now, I know they erected a monument for Mr. Lincoln and President Washington, but that’s because they’re DEAD! Hopefully, the 1976 President won’t be DEAD! So he won’t NEED an erection! If Americans are going to spend money to erect anything, why don’t we tear down those nasty slums and erect luxury high rises for poor people and senior citizens! Not for presidents who can afford to pay for their OWN erections! Chevy Chase: Miss Litella -- Emily Litella: I can’t believe the way things are turning out in this country -- what? Chevy Chase: I'm sorry. That’s election. The editorial was about the ...
Gilda Radner SNL but I had character wrong, not Roseanne Roseannadanna, it was Emily Litella sample:

wait, Emily Litella is out? (FYI, she was an old SNL character portrayed by the late Gilda Radner)
Willard Mitt Romney is suffering from the Emily Litella Syndrome. Just like the Gilda Radnor character she created on SNL who would come on at the end of Weekend Update with an editorial on something like "Violins on television" as an issue and when she was corrected that the issue was "Violence on television" not "Violins on television Emily Litella would deliver the now famous line "Never Mind" Willard Mitt Romney is now saying "Never Mind" to all his previous statements on foreign policy. Understand ELS is a fatal disease.
Whoops, just saw that that the big box ban didn't get enough votes. Never mind. *Emily Litella*
Ha. I read that too fast and thought you said Marilyn Monroe and was, naturally, puzzled. An Emily Litella moment.
Watching Mitt Romney last night in the final presidential debate was like watching the Gilda Radner's character, Emily Litella. After saying lots of crazy things, poor Emily tries to wipe out all the craziness, finally, by whining . . . 'Never mind...'
Rmoney channeling SNL characters,1st Lovitz that's the ticket to Prez then Emily Litella's Never Mind on past statements
And, having offered his best imitation of Emily Litella, Brian closes with "never mind..."

The North Dakota deer lady rant about the deer crossing signs; an Emily Litella moment, don't you think? How funny is that!
"What's all this fuss about youth in Asia?!" ~ MISS Emily Litella
What's all this fuss I hear about Google earrings? - Emily Litella (in spirit)
So regarding last week's news of 7.8% unemployment we reference Emily Litella - never mind.
We need Miss Emily Litella asking "What is all this I hear about Presidential Erections".
Not even Gilda Radner's Emily Litella could have found a more bizarre point in last night's debate.
Emily Litella: what's all this talk I hear about blinders for women? Women shouldn't be treated like horses! Why should they have to wear blinders? Outrageous!
"Why are the Dems talking about dishes and binders? Why don't they talk about Obama's record? Oh. Never mind." -Emily Litella
Emily Litella believes Romney was talking about binding women's feet.
It's rare for both sides of an issue to take the same position.
What's all this fuss about binding women in mittens?! Mittens are warm & comfy WHAT?!... Oh NEVERMIND - Emily Litella
I wish Gilda Radner were around to do a Emily Litella sketch objecting to Romney's run for president due to the fact that he is a merman.
Romney wants to put women in a blender?!! What? Oh. Never mind. - Emily Litella
"I'm waiting for Mr. Richard Fader of Ft. Lee, NJ to ask a question. What about Emily Litella?
Deer crossing signs exists in semi-rural areas to let drivers know to watch out for deer on the road. But Donna, who called in to a radio station in Fargo,
heh...I can see Emily Litella saying that on SNL, if Gilda were still alive.
Some of Emily Litella’s best: Saving Soviet jewelry, endangered feces, violins on television, busting schoolchildren, flea elections, pouring money into canker research, conserving our natural racehorses, youth in Asia, sax on television, firing the handicapped, making Puerto Rico a steak, Eagle Rights Amendment, and of course, who doesn't remember… Presidential erections.
Pudwill Berry Farm, why do you suck?: Actually, that was Emily Litella. Just ask Cheddar Cheese.
Gilda’s Club New York City was named for Gilda Radner, the brilliant comedian and one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live. For years, she made us laugh with memorable characters like Baba Wawa, Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseannadanna. Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1...
Unimportantant fact all of my life I thought the lyrics (in Groovin') were, " Life will be ecstasy, you and me and LESLEY." Shocker.you and me END-LESS-LY. "Oh," said Emily Litella, "that's very different. Never mind."
Gilda Radner as Emily Litella is probably one of my favourite SNL characters. Always funny when she calls Chase 'Cheddar Cheese'.
Does everyone remember Emily Litella played by Gilda Radner of course, when she rumbled on about Violins on television, or discoursed about the president wanting to make Puerto Rico a steak, then went on and on till someone corrected her and she would finish up with "never mind"?doesn't that sound allot like Mitt?
Isn't this the same guy who told us not to go to Vegas & celebrate while the eco. . . .in the words of the immortal Gilda Radner (as Emily Litella): "never mind."
Why all the fuss over free punever free. And a riot won't help anything. (read in the voice of Emily Litella aka Gilda Radner)
You made me think of Gilda Radner as Emily Litella on SNL.
Emily Litella: I'm here tonight to speak out against busting schoolchildren. Busting schoolchildren is a terrible, terrible thing. I hear this is going on all over the country. Mean policemen arrest little children and put them in jail in the wrong neighborhood, so they can't even play with their little friends. Imagine, busting schoolchildren! The food in jail isn't good, and even though they get bread, I don't believe they can get toast. Or nice cake. Now, who will tuck them in? Where will they hang their leggings? Where will they set up their little lemonade stands? Well, they don't have toys in jail, except maybe.. Chevy Chase: [ interrupting ] Miss Litella? Emily Litella: Yes? Chevy Chase: I'm sorry. The editorial was on bussing schoolchildren. Bussing. Not busting. Emily Litella: Oh. I'm sorry. Never mind.
remember Gilda Radner's Emily Litella character, going on about Soviet jewelry/etc.? Then a sweet little "Never mind!"
Why can I find clips of every part of Gilda Radner's stand up act except for the Emily Litella scene? I think I have found every version of this persona except for the one in her comedy act where she actually sits down and reads from her book "Tiny Kingdom" gr
This 4th of July we're playing Emily Litella or Michele Bachmann: "Now what all the fuss I hear about Hick Bosoms?"
Listening to the now. I was THRILLED to the core that did an Emily Litella "Never mind". I miss Gilda Radner.
Before Kristin Wiig, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey were earning laughs on Saturday Night Live, Gilda Radner graced the stage of studio 8H as one of the original queens of comedy.

Today in 1946, Gilda Radner was born. Her character Emily Litella is pretty much the entire basis for Fox News.
Known to television audiences as bumbling Emily Litella, scatterbrained Roseanne Roseannadanna, and nerdy Lisa Loopner, comedian Gilda Radner shot to stardom on NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL). Hailed by critics as the next Lucille Ball, Radner's success in television in the 1970s led to a brief fil...
