  • Episode Description
  • The show started with a bunch of one-liners, then several short bits. After the intros, the opening monologue involved computer dating. Following was the party, more one-liners, and the news; where the girls danced and sang the news theme melodramatically, and Dick did his Big Al impression. Then more short bits, the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate, and a bit about a man who literally could save time. Next came more short bits, the second party segment, which was all about freedom, and Dan and Dick talking about cryonics which led into Potpourri. Then a poem from Henry, Gladys and Tyrone, more one-liners, more short bits, and the Discovery Of The Week, Samantha Lloyd, the bass drum player. Then Sock It To Me Time, more one-liners, more short bits, and Mod Mod World which looked at organized labor. Lastly were the good nights, the joke wall and the last short bits.moreless
