Episode Recap

The show started with a spot announcement, and several one-liners. After the intros, Bobby introduced Dan and Dick, who was confused during the opening monologue. Following was the first party segment, more one-liners, and the Discovery Of The Week, the Holy Modal Rounders. They did 'You Got The Right String, But The Wrong Yo-Yo,' and Gladys played with them, but it ended abruptly when Tyrone dragged her away. Next, several short bits, a saying from the Maharishi, the Question Of The Week, more short bits and Gladys and Tyrone leading to the first commercial break. After the break, more short bits, Dan inviting Dick to a barbecue, Charlie lamenting his anniversary, Judy taking a call, and the news, where the girls were their fairy characters and did the news theme in high-pitched voices. Then more short bits and one-liners, the second party segment, which was all about sports, more one-liners, Dick talking about a 'triple play', another saying from the Maharishi, Dan and Dick trying to help Goldie with a dance step, Bobby as a chili taster, and Bobby as Rosmenko's old dance partner, Boris Boldonovich, who just escaped from the Iron Curtain; they did a dance number to 'Mack The Knife.' Then Sock It To Me Time(Judy saying 'It's saga to me' after reading Ulysses) and Mod Mod World about pollution. Finally, more short bits, some Henny Youngman punch lines, the Flying Fickle Finger Of Fate, Gladys and Tyrone, an appeal for hair for Mt. Baldy, a poem from Henry, the good nights, the joke wall and the last short bits.
