  • Notes

    • WELCOME HOME BENITO!!! Tonight marked the return of The Squire of Mount Kisco after his well-deserved three week South American vacation. Bennett's return must have inspired the panel as they went a respectable 2 for 3 this evening. Unfortunately, things didn't start off too well as the panel was thoroughly stumped by the tax preparer from Chicago. In fact, her good looks might have thrown the panel, because they first thought she was in some form of entertainment. However, their luck improved in the second game as Arlene correctly guessed that the contestant dealt with aspirin. Of course, John took the opportunity to make a joke that once everyone's taxes were done, they probably needed to take some aspirin. In the mystery guest round, jazz legend Louis Armstrong, who signed in using his famous nickname "Satchmo," almost fooled the panel by using short and soft "yep" and "nope" replies to answer the panel's questions. However, a well-timed conference called by guest panelist Ross Hunter allowed him and Dorothy to correctly identify Armstrong at the last possible second. "Satchmo," upon Arlene's request, then delighted the audience by giving an a cappella rendition of his big hit "Hello, Dolly!" That definitely put a nice exclamation point on Bennett's homecoming. - Sargebri (2006)

      TAXING MATTERS: Even though the first contestant's appearance could be seen as somewhat of a rib on everyone due to the fact that it was tax season, it also was somewhat of a public service reminder to let the public watching WML at home and in the studio know that the tax deadline was fast approaching and that everyone should get their taxes finished and mailed. - Sargebri

      ASPIRIN: When Arlene was questioning the aspirin manufacturer, she asked if his product could be taken every day. Of course, close to thirty years later, it would be discovered that a daily low-dose of aspirin could be taken to help prevent heart attacks. In addition, it was discovered that taking aspirin was also a way to help save someone who was experiencing a heart attack. - Sargebri
