  • Trivia

    • There was a running gag about Jack Benny being raced through various skits, the gag being about the fast pace of the show. Several times a waterfall was mentioned. At the end of the show, Jack demanded to see the waterfall, only to have water dropped on him as he demanded it.


    • The short bits included one-liners from Johnny and George and Alan as a cowboy having problems entering a saloon.


    • The Flying Fickle Finger Of Fate Award went to the National Security Agency, because a Washington real estate developer called the Russian embassy and got the exact number of people working at the NSA facilty at Ft. Mead after they wouldn't give him the info.

  • Quotes

    • Teresa: What Vice President Agnew really means is, do your own thing...(singing) but do it my way!

    • Lily: If Kaye Ballard married former astronaut Wally Schirra, divorced him and married his brother, she'd be (singing) Kaye Schirra Schirra!

    • Dan: You know, some people say they miss the old days of burlesque. Not me, but I do miss the nights.

    • (Dick talks about his fitness plan)
      Dick: Yes, girls, a lovelier, slimmer you in just three short days.
      Dan: Three short days?
      Dick: And twelve great nights!

    • Jack: A funny thing happened to me on the way on the way to Burbank. This is it!

    • Dan: The Congress promised us there'd be a lot of talk about tax reform, and they were right. There's been a lot of talk about tax reform.

    • Alan: I don't know whether to go to a topless or a bottomless club. Maybe I'll just flip a coin: heads or tails.

    • Jack: I just saw someone wearing a completely transparent see-through blouse and the shortest skirt in the world. I was horrified. I mean you'd really think that Milton Berle would have better taste than that.

    • George: Down where I come from they brought in one of those computer dating services and it matched up the town's only two single people. You never saw two more surprised old broads in your life. I said broads. Goober said broads!
