  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Lowell Brock: Hi, I'm Lowell Brock of H&L Brock, with more of my seventeen reasons why you should bring your taxes to us, instead of H&R Block. Reason #13: The H&L Brock Church and Synagogue. The IRS does not require churches or synagogues to keep financial records. In 1957, my brother Henry became the first priest of Our Lady of the Holy Rebate. In 1963, our partner, Saul Weinstein, was ordained Rabbi of Temple B'nai Shalom Brock. If you are a wealthy religious person, you may want to make a large donation to either of these houses of worship, and claim it as a deduction. We will then kick back 95 percent of the donation, keeping the rest as payment for our services, saving you a bundle on your returns. You can cheat on your taxes and look like a saint. So come to H&L Brock. You'll thank the Lord you did.

    • Garrett Morris: Hi, I'm Garrett Morris, talkin' to all you white Americans about the way black people have been treated in America. Now, I know a lot of you feel guilty, and you should. My great-great-grandmother was brought over here on a slave ship and was raped by her white master. And my grandfather was lynched by a mob for not tippin' his hat to a white lady. Now, they're dead now and there's nothing you can do to erase their suffering. However, if you would like to relieve your guilt, I am willing to accept money as a representative victim of four hundred years of repression. Send your check or money order to White Guilt Relief Fund, care of Garrett Morris, 870 West 127th Street, New York, New York 10089 (Superimposed text reads: WHITE GUILT RELIEF FUND c/o Garrett Morris, 870 West 127th Street, New York, New York 10089) and if you send in before July 4th, 1976, (holds up a parchment scroll and an orange card) I will send you this beautiful scroll and I.D. card certifying you as an honorary Negro in the eyes of several black Americans! Once again, that address! (smiling, Garrett pauses)
      Voice of Don Pardo: White Guilt Relief Fund, in care of Garrett Morris, 870 West 127th Street, New York, New York 10089. Send cash or money, I know I have. I felt just terrible until I did.

    • Chevy Chase: After a lengthy and tiring conference in Geneva, members from some 35 nations, including England, France, Germany, the United States, Russia and Red China...

    • Chevy Chase:  Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase and you can't.

  • NOTES (2)

    • In reruns, several audience shots ("John Beresford Tipton" and "Adjust your set if it will make you happy") and the Home Movies address voiceover after the Mr. Bill film were removed, and the opening theme music was spliced in from the Lily Tomlin show until Pardo announces Jill Clayburgh's name. "Triple Trac" is added.

    • This episode marks Mr. Bill's first appearance.
