Saturday Night Live sketch for "The Herlihy Boy House-Sitting Service"

*announcer* If you leave the house this holday season, why not let the Herlihy boy be your house sitter? Out of an estimated 50 thousand professional house sitters, the Herlihy boy is by far the best.

Adam Sandler: Hello. Let me water your plants. Please, while you're gone? Let me water your plants. It would mean so much to me... if you just let me water your plants. Come on, you're not gonna be there. Somebody's gotta water them. Why can't it be me? Please? Hey, hey... please? Let me water your plants.

Chris Farley: Come on, let the boy water your plants!

Adam Sandler: Hi, hello. Are you good? Good. Let me bring in your mail, while you're gone. Come on, please? Let me bring in your mail. There'll be so much mail in your mailbox while you're away. Let me bring the mail in the house for you. Come on, I'm already gonna be watering your plants. Just say yes to me bringing in your mail, please? Don't look away, look at me. I honestly and sincerely would like to bring in your mail.

Chris Farley: He's a good, hard-working boy. Let him bring in your mail!

Adam Sandler: Hey, look who's here! Nice to see you again, you look great. Let me sleep in your bed. Don't shake your head 'no'. Let me sleep in your bed. You're not even gonna be there. Please let me... let me sleep in your bed. Nothin' weird's gonna happen. I'll sleep in the exact same position as you sleep. You can trust me. I'll even wash the sheets before you come back, how's that? Please?

Chris Farley: Sweet mother of God, what is the hold up?! Let the boy sleep in your damn bed!! He said he'd wash the sheets! Eh?!

Adam Sandler: Please don't make me wash the sheets.

Chris Farley: He's a clean boy, wash your own damn sheets! For God sakes!

Adam Sandler: Let me move in with you, please? When you come back home, don't make me leave. Please, let me move in with you. I'll push all my things into the corner. That'll be my little area. Please? I won't bother you. You won't even have to look at me. Just let me move in with you, please. I'd like an answer, and I'd like that answer to be 'yes', please? I've already slept in your bed. If you didn't want me to move in, why'd you let me sleep in your bed? Just let me move in with you, please?

Chris Farley: Could we stop this cruel game?! And allow the boy to keep one shred of dignity?! For God sakes! I can't stand to see him in all this pain! You vicious bastards! Let him move in with you!! Is it so bad to see somebody happy?! So just let him move in! For the love of God, let the boy move in with you! Good Lord!!

Adam Sandler: I'm not gonna beg you. My track record speaks for itself. I'm confident you'll make the right decision.

*announcer* The Herlihy Boy House-Sitting Service. Let's face it -- he's coming over anyway.
