  • After betting the money Felix gave him to secure a grave site. Oscar is left to find another plot for felix.

    I for one never cared too much about the Character of Nancy Cunnigham, (Oscar's girlfriend) who just disappears in later episodes. Here however, her character's dialogue is just as humors’ as those of Felix and Oscar's. It makes for a quite enjoyable and very funny episode. This truely is one of my favorites.

  • NOTES (0)


    • Oscar: Did you hear that, Felix? They promised you a rose garden!

      This is a play on the first line of Lynn Anderson's 1970 country hit, Rose Garden, which went, "I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden."
