Lisa is so impressed, she arranges for an old friend to give him a Hollywood screen test. The Douglases are soon Tinseltown bound, escorting the hammy actor west for his big showbiz break.moreless

      • Haney: (making pre-show announcements) Now appearin' in tonight's play are Sam Drucker, Newt Kiley's police dog Columbo, and Sophia Loren. Uh, due to circumstances beyond our control, Miss Loren can't appear tonight, so, uh, her part will be played by Ralph Monroe. [audience bursts into applause]

      • Eb: [reading one of Arnold the Pig's (reading one of Arnold's reviews) The Pixley Press says he's the greatest thing to hit the stage since Laurence Olivier.
        Lisa: They did?
        Eb: Yes! Who is she?
        Oliver: It's a he, and how dare they compare a pig to a great actor!
        Eb: The Ziffels sure are excited about him. They always wanted Arnold to be a veterinarian, but now they've decided to let him take up acting as a career!

      • Oliver: (when Arnold enters carrying his reviews in his mouth) Now there's a ham who's really a ham.
