  • Notes

    • Terry-Thomas certainly showed us why he was considered to be one of the wittiest comics ever. His "Oh so British" sense of humor made him one of the favorites in entertainment. At one point, he makes everybody laugh when he says that he is "bitter and twisted" that he got a "no." The segment with the checker of the year was probably one of the funniest segments overall, but it was Jack Lemmon's game that provided some of the funniest individual moments. During the post game chat, Lemmon revealed that he and Terry-Thomas had been playing billiards together the night before! Lemmon said that Thomas kept asking him about the show, in hopes of getting good advice about how to be a panelist. Lemmon said he did all he could to keep from revealing that he was going to be the mystery guest that night. Ironically, it was Terry-Thomas who guessed Lemmon's identity. And when he did, he seemed truly amazed that it was indeed Lemmon. - Sargebri (2004)
