I've actually enjoyed some of the new ones quite a bit, but the ones that stick with me are definitely older:

"Bass-O-Matic!", with the fish in the blender, and Aykroyd as Julia Child suffering from arterial blood loss . . .

Christopher Walken as "Trivial Psychic" -- "Don't you understand??  You're wasting coffee!!!"

Alec Baldwin as "Bad Detective" . . .

Belushi's "Little Chocolate Donuts" . . . Actually, anything with Belushi.

Chevy Chase pretending to be different reporters offscreen on "Weekend Update", and then trying badly to cover for himself.

Frank Zappa on "Freak Mountain" -- I understand that Zappa annoyed everyone in the cast, especially Al Franken, but I think they just didn't give him a chance/didn't understand his brand of surrealism.  I really hated "The Franken and Davis Show" portions, and would go out for the food & bathroom breaks while they were on.

The whole Ron Zapruder show, wherein the cast pushed the envelope re. how filthy they could be & get away with it.

I kind of got away from the show during the Eddie Murphy/Joe Piscopo days, as I didn't think the writing was up to par, but lately I've laughed a lot at the new sketches.

Jon Lovitts' "The Mountain Man"
Unfunny, but enjoyable... Until he gets to the punchline at the end, which earned a giggle from me.

"Tales of Ribaldry" were always pretty amusing

"Master Thespian" on the other hand, was kind of annoying. Perhaps it was some insider joke I was missing.

Almost anything Phil Hartman did was great. Two off the top of my head were the episode of COPS set in Arkansas that featured several trips to the Clinton's residence, in the Governor's mansion no less, and the skit where Phil, as a cranky Frank Sinatra, records a duet album with popular singers of the time. He kept calling Sinead O'Connor Sine-Aid and Cue Ball. I think that's where the "You had me, then you lost me." line came from.

Hartman was underrated and one of the better performers on the show.  He may not have had 'characters', so to speak, but always funny.  He had a few characters though.

I think that one you are referring to was Real Stories of the Arkansas Highway Patrol.The funniest part in that one was where they had to answer a domestic dispute call.It turned out that Hilary had beaten the crap out of Bill.One of the sherrifs told him,"we have to come here every week and frankly,we're getting sick and tired of it.Now when is all this gonna'stop?".Bill,nursing a black eye and bleeding,pauses and answers,"But she loves me".The sherrif replies,"Well,she sure got a funny way of showing it".
I liked the more bizzarre ones like this one that had no dialogue except for one line spoken by Phil Hartman("Sorry pal.Not tonight").Chris Farley as a drunk than imagines that he will spend the evening covered in spiders;the Harvey Keitel as a lunatic and his collection of descending ant heads(?)and Soylent Cowflop("Well,at least it's hot").

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
