ABC (ended 1970)




  • Season 1 Episode 17: With a Friend Like Him

  • Running suitcase gag? This episode seemed to edit out at least one gag that ran through the episode.

    1) Brother Paul offers to carry Mother Placido's suitcase to the car. She drives away & it's still in his hand -- yet the editing ends the scene without noting this.

    2) Brother Paul is going to leave and Sister Bertrille talks him out of it, he leaves his suitcase as he walks away and she has to point it out to him.

    3) In Brother Paul's final scene, he walks into Mother Placido's office with his suitcase and then leaves without it. Again, it isn't pointed out, but Sister Bertrille trips over it and falls into the table. You can see the suitcase on the floor.

  • Season 1 Episode 8: Ah Love, Could You and I ...

  • Carlos keeps quoting a poet about little capers can grow . . . The quote that Carlos is really saying translates to "My aunt's pen is in the house."

    This is brought forward by Al at the end when he says reacts to Carlos' quote with a reference to "the pen of my aunt".

  • Season 1 Episode 2: The Convert

  • The song the band is playing at Carlos's discotheque is an instrumental version of the Monkees song "Your Auntie Grizelda."
