  • This episode has nothing going for it

    3.0
    This episode is rather uninteresting and not very funny. The episode sounded like it had an interesting plot with Ralph starring in a play, which could be interesting, but no. It's a romantic play and it had Ed courting Alice, something interesting would've come out of it, but no, Ralph gets a sappy moral idea about how to treat his wife...and it has a poor ending. Ralph is pretty out of character, he has no angry outbursts in this, and they milk the gag with the poloponies (Steptoe and Son did it better). I also noticed that Ed doesn't at all sound right in this, he must've been sick that day. A poor episode in summary, I reccomend Ralph the Janitor for a good episode.moreless

    • Ralph: (on Norton's interest in his "pro-feel") How do you like him, Alice? How do you like him? If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a HAM!

    • [Both Ralph and Ed read their scripts.]

      Ed: I don't possess a mansion, a villa in France, a yacht, or a string of poloponies.

      Ralph: I'm glad to hear--- (pause) a string of poloponies? Where do you see that?

      Ed: {points at the line) Right there, a string of poloponies!

      Ralph: That's a string of polo-ponies!
