AL FRANKEN: My daughter was the first Saturday Night Live baby, the first new child born to anybody who worked on the show.
TOM DAVIS: Gilda and G. E. Smith, the musician, were living together in the Dakota, and Gilda wanted to give Al's wife, Franny, and the new baby a shower. G.E. and I are in the back of the apartment where all his guitars are, because the shower's for women -- all the secretaries, all the wives, jane is there, Lorraine is there. Everyone is waiting for the baby to arrive and there's a knock at the door and G. E. and I peek in from the other room.
AL FRANKEN: My wife came with her sister first and I was to bring the baby. My other sister-in-law came with me. So I got a doll the exact size of the baby and swaddled it -- I told Franny I was going to do this -- and there's like thirty women, and I walk in and they're all going li,e "Ohhh... ahhh," and I walk in and I hit the baby's head on this piece of furniture and I go up in the air and I come down with everything, everythiing, going onto this doll, so that there is no way I didn't kil the baby. And the screams, the screams!
TOM DAVIS: The scream that came out of these women, it just made everyone's hair stand on end. They just witnessed this man kill his newborn baby. To this day, I've never heard a more terrifying sond than all those women witnesing this baby being killed by its father.
AL FRANKEN: And then my sister-in-law Carla walks in with the real baby.
TOM DAVIS: I'm telling you. Al did shit like that. I love him for it.
