Fred: Is your show on film? Your television show on film? (Audrey Meadows motions John for a conference.)
John: Sorry, have to have a conference.
Fred: Hasn't she seen it lately? (big laughter from audience) Is it still on?
John: Fred, would you ask that question again?
Fred: Is this young lady's television show on film? Is it a filmed show? Or is it a live show?
Audrey Meadows: Um...
Fred: Yes or no? ... Alive or dead?
Audrey Meadows: Um...yes and no.
Fred: At the same time?
Audrey Meadows: Um...no...I...I work a lot.
Dorothy: What did she say?
Arlene: She said she works a lot...alive and dead.
(Loud laughter and applause from audience, followed by a brief period of silence.)
Arlene: Are you through, Fred?
Arlene: I mean that in the nicest possible way!
Fred: Oh, sure. John weakened... John had a short lapse and I got two questions in.
