Phil Hartman appears as Bill Clinton on an episode of SNL. In one of Hartman's most famous episodes, Clinton visits a McDonald's. When he met Clinton in 1993, Hartman remarked, "I guess I owe you a few apologies." Clinton showed good humor & sent Hartman a signed photo with the text: "You're not the president, but you play one on TV. And you're OK, mostly." For his Clinton impression, Hartman copied the president's "post-nasal drip" & the "slight scratchiness" in his voice.

"For my first show at 'SNL', I wrote a Bill Clinton sketch, and during our read-through, it wasn't getting any laughs. This weight of embarrassment came over me, and I felt like I was sweating from my spine out. But I realized, 'Okay, that happened, and I did not die.' You've got to experience failure to understand that you can survive it.", Tina Fey
