Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode #51
AIRED:
The show started with Sammy trying to sing but Judy interrupting him and Goldie trying to remember Michael Caine's name. After the intros, Sammy introduced Dan and Dick as the judge, and the opening monologue had Dick confused as to who Sammy was. Potpourri followed, which featured Sammy and Arte as a Russian USO troupe, and Henry writing a novel, and some short bits. Next was the news, with Sammy and the girls in judge mode. Then a poem by Henry with a retort by Sammy, more short bits, including Jeremy asking Michael what he thought of Laugh-In, a Letter to Laugh-In, the party, and the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate. Then Gladys and Tyrone, more short bits, Arte as the Scandanavian storyteller and Sammy translating, more short bits, and Arte, Henry and Sammy singing 'There's Nothing Wrong With Being Short'. Then more short bits, Dick telling Dan about his new soap and The Quickies. Then Arte as Wolfgang as Michael as an English soldier, the good nights where Sammy wanted to sing, but all he got was water and the trap door, the joke wall and the last short bits.moreless
