  • show Description
  • Good Morning, World was a sitcom about two radio disc jockeys in Los Angeles, stars of the Lewis and Clarke radio show. David Lewis is married to Linda, a homemaker; Larry Clarke is a bachelor with an off-and-on girlfriend, Sandy, who is the Lewis's neighbor. Their employer at the radio station is Roland Hutton, the humorless station manager. Hutton is constantly butting heads with Larry, who wants to play more modern records, against his boss's wishes.moreless

  • Quotes (33)

    • David: I'm through talking to you here. The next time you hear me it'll be on your radio. Jimmy: O.K. And I'll get on my refrigerator to answer you.

    • David: (reading the label on a jar Linda just bought) Pink Quail Eggs. Why did you buy pink quail eggs? Linda: I like them. David: Yeah, but nobody likes quail eggs. Linda: Then, why do quails lay them? David: To get rid of them.

    • Linda: Why aren't you voting for David? Sandy: Well, I'd like to, but I'm trying to establish some kind of relationship with Larry. Linda: But you've known David for years. Sandy: Linda! Do you know what you're doing? You're electioneering! Linda: Well, I have a right to. He's my husband. Sandy: See! You have a husband. I have a vote, which could get me a husband.

    • Mr. Hutton: Boys, I dropped by here early today because I have some very good news for you. Larry: You fired yourself. Mr. Hutton: Lawrence, if I ever fire myself it will be at you.

    • Mr. Hutton: Who flies? Larry: So far, only me. I’m taking lessons. Mr. Hutton: You are? Larry: Yeah, any objections? Mr. Hutton: On the contrary. We carry a hundred-thousand dollar policy on your life. Larry: Gee, I’m worth more dead than alive. Mr. Hutton: That would be true even if the policy was for 98 cents.

    • David: Honey, there’s nothing to be worried about. Jerry Janger’s been flying for 20 years. He even flew in the war. Linda: He crashed three times. David: But he walked away from each one. Linda: Jerry limps. David: Jerry doesn’t limp. He swaggers.

    • (Dave and Linda listing what's wrong with their car) Linda: Left rear tire is bald. Dave: And the rest of them are losing their hair.

    • Linda: (handing Dave some cards during a break in the telethon) Here’s some more pledges, David. David: Thanks, honey. Oh, listen, if you’re tired this would be a great time to take a rest. You’ve been on the phone for over three hours. Linda: Maybe I will. I do have a few calls to make.

    Notes (10)

    • Good Morning, World was filmed using four cameras in front of a live audience twice each Friday, once in the afternoon and again in the evening.

    • Billy Jones is Billy De Wolfe’s real name.

    • The music playing when Sandy dances on the telethon is the music played over the menu on the DVD.

    • The writers of this episode, E. Duke Vincent and Bruce Howard, also appear as guest stars.

    • This episode is very similar to an episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show called "There's No Sale Like Wholesale".

    • In this episode Linda is hanging pictues that David painted. Joby Baker is an accomplished painter in real life. It's very likely that these are his paintings.

    • The character of Duke Vincent bears a strong resemblance to Frank Sinatra, with his buddy, Billy, resembling Sammy Davis Jr..

    • The character of the famous TV star has the same name, Duke Vincent, as one of the show's writers, E. Duke Vincent.
