  • Quotes

    • Gary: This program was prerecorded when NBC wasn't looking.

    • Tiny Tim: Hi. I'm the loser in the Tiny Tim look-a-like contest.

    • Dick M.: Don't you think Rex Harrison dresses nattily?
      Goldie: Natalie who?

    • Alan: Did you know that Dean Martin has a purple heart?
      Ruth: Oh, no kidding? Was he wounded?
      Alan: No, he has ice cubes in his pocket.

      Henry: You know, I'm a writer now, Chelsea.
      Chelsea: Oh, that's cute. Have you sold anything yet?
      Henry: Yeah, my watch, my ice cubes.

    • Billy: This program reminds me of a modern day Noah's Ark. All the old jokes come on two by two.

    • Dan: My wife was supposed to come to the party tonight, but she's home with mononucleosis.
      Goldie: Oh? Well, you'd better be careful, Dan. You just can't trust those Greek millionaires.

    • George: Spooky old Alice and I have argued valiantly all over the world. Our lines have been one noble global Gobel conflict.

    • Judy: Chels, I'm confused. What do you drink with soul food?
      Chelsea: Oh, that's no problem. Any good black wine will do.

  • Notes

    • A very interesting moment occured at the very end of the show. Dan and Dick were talking to Billy Graham; Dan asked him what he said to young people and Billy quoted John 3:16. Then Arte appeared as Wolfgang in the bush. He turned to the camera and said, 'Very interesting...and very true. Think about it.' Then he nodded to the camera, turned back to his profile and the usual 'Schlatter-Friendly Productions' end credit appeared.
