    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Bennett should have seen this one coming!)
        Bennett: Does it contain any nuts?
        John: Unlike the panel, it does not.

      • (Making a pun on the words "cone" and "Cohn")
        Bennett: I thought the "Cohns" were at Columbia Pictures.
        John: That was pretty cone-y, Mr. Cerf.

    • NOTES (8)

      • FLIP REPORT: At one point during the questioning of the second challenger, Bennett called out John, saying that he had flipped two cards when he should have only flipped one. John humored Bennett and flipped one of the cards back over, reducing the count. Actually, though, John had not made a mistake in his card flipping count. He was merely being gracious to Bennett. - agent_0042 (2006)

      • REVIEW: This was an interesting night due to the fact that Arlene was not on the show this evening due to her filming "One, Two, Three" in Germany. However, the Gabel family was well represented by her loving husband Martin. Filling in for Arlene was the original supermodel Suzy Parker. As for the games, if it weren't for Martin's last-second heroics in the mystery guest round, the panel would have gone "0" for the night. In the first game, the panel was absolutely stumped by the college student from Montana & South Dakota who worked as an alligator wrestler during the summer months. The panel was equally stumped in the second game when they failed to guess that the second contestant from New Orleans baked ice cream cones. However, in the mystery guest round, Martin saved the night when he correctly identified frequent guest panelist Alan King. Alan was on the show to promote his upcoming appearance on "The Garry Moore Show." Of course, Alan pretty much got his big break due to his frequent guest appearances on that variety hour. During the post game chat, Martin gave Alan a nice compliment when he said that Alan was one of the hits of President Kennedy's inaugural gala. Alan then brought up the fact that the gala almost didn't happen due to the huge snowstorm that blanketed Washington that night. Hopefully, next week will be a better one for the panel, in the "game win" department. - Sargebri (2006)

        Although the panel had a rough night, they shouldn't really be blamed for their poor performance, gamewise. As the show moved along into its later years, the occupations would become more and more difficult. In fact, several occupations that hadn't existed when the show first aired would be featured on the show. - Sargebri (2006)

      • FAN LETTER: During the introductions, Bennett read out loud a fan letter from Snoony Lou Hurlock (or possibly Snooney / Snoonie Lu Herlock) of Federalsburg, Maryland. Snoony jokingly asked why John Daly was so silent. - Suzanne (2006)

        VOCABULARY WATCH: Tonight, Martin Gabel impressed John by using the word "ratiocination," which means logical and methodical reasoning. - Suzanne (2006)

      • Suzy Parker is said to be starting a movie for 20th Century Fox called "A Summer World" but the film was cancelled shortly before production began. It was to be directed by Franklin J. Schaffner with a screenplay by Steven Gethers. - ericisveda (2006)

      • DUELING PUNSTERS: After John flipped the cards on the second contestant's round, the talk went to Betty Turnbull's baking of ice cream cones. Bennett then mentioned "a cone [Cohn] in Columbia Pictures." This was a dual-pun reference to both the contestant's line and the late Columbia Pictures boss Harry Cohn, who died in 1958. John then followed up Bennett's pun with one "corny" pun of his own when he retorted, "That was pretty cone-y, Mr. Cerf." - W-B (2006)

      • Alan King promoted his upcoming appearance on "The Garry Moore Show." - Suzanne (2003)

      • Tidbits: Arlene Francis is in West Germany, filming her 1961 motion picture, "One, Two, Three." - Suzanne (2003)

      • Suzy Parker (10/28/1932 - 5/3/2003)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Martin Gabel, Suzy Parker, Bennett Cerf.
