  • Trivia

    • This episode introduced the Wonderful World of Whoopee award, which went to a man in Ann Arbor, Michigan for his creative solution for junk mail: He sent the ads for beds, undergarments and lingerie back because he determined they were obscene, and the postmaster agreed with him.

    • The short bits included Phyllis as a maid cleaning up, Ruth and Jo Anne as colonial women in stocks, and Dick as a father and Alan as his hippy son.


  • Quotes

    • Phyllis: Have you ever traveled third class on the Burbank airline?
      Dick: I'd rather walk!
      Phyllis: Ah-hah! That's third class.

    • Goldie: How do you straighten out a dented fender?
      Phyllis: Well, I would just take it aside and have a heart-to-heart talk with it, okay?

    • Gary: Stand by for a gale warning.
      Dick: Gale, get out of town. The wife's onto us.

    • Roger: I'm Roger Moore. I'm known as 'The Saint.'
      Dick: I'm Dick Martin. I'm known as 'The Sinner.'

    • Ruth: Truth is beauty. But if that's not enough, try a hairpiece, false eyelashes and a padded bra!

    • Dan: Well, what do you think of, uh, beautiful downtown Burbank, Romy?
      Romy: Well, two out of three ain't bad.
      Dan: Unhappily, I'm in no position to disagree with you.

    • Roger: I normally do my own stunts unless they're extremely hazardous to my career. That's why I should have hired a stand-in to do this show.

    • Jacqueline: The University of Burbank is getting a lot out of my book The Love Machine. The English department is trying to read it, and the engineering department is trying to build it!

    • Jo Anne: Boris' wife and I have something in common: We're both thinking of leaving him!

  • Notes

    • When Phyllis appeared on the show in the previous season, she introduced the news segment by saying she loved how the girls stumble through the beginning song every week. In an ironic twist, she joined the girls in the opening news song. They had to carry Phyllis off at the end of it, when Dan came in. Also, Goldie did the beginning, which Dick noted by saying, 'That may be the only time we'll ever see Goldie on point.'
