  • Possibly my favorite episode of this series. What could be better than a visit from Lamb Chop?

    10
    Having grown up watching Lamb Chop all my life, this was a must see show for me and boy did it not disappoint. From the moment Lamb Chop came on the screen, I couldn't take my eyes away.



    Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop are going to make a show with Maxwell. When Shari goes to meet with Maxwell, she leaves Lamb Chop "asleep" in her bed. How cute was she lying there with her little beauty mask on? Fran and Val go in Shari's room to snoop around and Chester comes and takes Lamb Chop and "eats" her. As Fran tries to come up with an explanation, she makes a new Lamb Chop which is a site to see, let me tell you. When Lamb Chop was finally found stuck to the back of a towel, I thought I'd die. Turns out Chester threw her down the laundry chute. This show made me realize how much I miss Shari Lewis.



    Definitely a series classic and must see, IMO.moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Fran: You know, if Lamb Chop married Howdy Doody, her name would be Lamb Doody! (Brighton and Grace stare at her) Ma killed with that one in kindergarten.

    • Fran: Well, I said it. I knew you'd find some way to blame it all on me.
      Niles: (From the other side of the door) Yes, she did, sir.
      Fran: But I've got a plan.
      Niles: Yes, she does, sir.
      Fran: And as you know, my plans never fail. (Elbows the door, Niles starts laughing)

    • Maxwell: (To C.C. about her coat) Take. It. Off.
      Niles: Three words she doesn't hear very often. (High-fives Lamb Chop)
      C.C.: Niles, isn't that sweet? You're bonding with the sheep. Not the first time, I'm sure.
      Niles: Bravo, you win. Every dog has its day.

    • Maxwell: What film do we own the rights to?
      C.C.: Lamb Chop: The Movie!
      Fran: Oh, this is wonderful! When I was little we couldn't afford a lamb chop doll, so Grandma Yetta would put on her curly white wig and take out her teeth and Grandpa would stick his hand up her blouse... gee, come to think of it, good times were had by all.

    • Fran: (To Chester) Purge. Purge. You want me to stick your paw down your throat?!

    • Lamb Chop: (Looking at C.C.) AAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
      Fran: Miss Babcock, your coat!
      C.C.: What?
      Fran: New Zealand lamb! Maybe she had people there!

    • C.C.: I have to move out of my apartment for a few days and I cannot find a kennel!
      Niles: Ohhh, treat yourself to a hotel.

    • Fran: Miss Lewis, I am so sorry!
      Maxwell: Miss Fine, please, could you let Miss Lewis have a moment of silence... for the lamb?

    • Maxwell: I have a few ideas for the movie.
      Lamb Chop: (giggles) And I have a few ideas of my own... (gestures for Maxwell to come closer, whispers)...my room, later!
      Fran: (to Maxwell) Better wear a rubber glove!

    • Val: I get to meet Lamb Chop? Fran I promise I won't say anything stupid.
      Fran: Too late, Val.

    • Shari: Are you allright?
      Lamb Chop: Allright? I was almost strangled by a leopard thong bikini!
      Niles: Oops!

    • Fran: If she doesn't want to do it, she doesn't want to do it.
      Shari: I-I'm really sorry.
      Fran: You'll have to get Miss Piggy for your project.
      Lamb Chop: Miss Piggy? That HAM!

    • (Lamb Chop and Maxwell discuss their business plan while Fran and Val follow them into the living room)
      Lamb Chop: Excuse me, this is a private discussion.
      (Fran and Val head back into the kitchen, followed by Shari)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Fran: I agree. When you see Brooke Shields dancing around in pedal pushers you know the end is near.

      Fran is referring to the revival of the Broadway 1950s musical Grease which took place in the late 1980s/early 1990s where Shields played tough girl and Pink Lady leader Rizzo.
