    • (After Jeannie turns Roger into "the funniest man in the world"...)
      Groucho Marx: (hands cigar to Tony) You hold this... (grabs Jeannie and gives her a gentle squeeze, eyebrows raised) And I'LL hold THIS...

  • NOTES (1)

    • Groucho Marx appeared in this episode solely as a favor to his close friend, Sidney Sheldon. Sidney was supposed to create a situation comedy for Groucho for the fall of 1965 (as part of his pact with Screen Gems-Columbia). But Harpo passed away in September 1964, and executives worried that Groucho might be "too old" to tackle a weekly TV series...and the proposed series was scuttled.
