  • Notes

    • REVIEW: Tonight, Bennett gave what was his best performance in his long tenure as WML's anchor. The insults that Henry Morgan hurled at both Bennett and John seemed to inspire the Squire as he scored a one-man perfecto. Bennett's assault started in the first game as he correctly guessed that the attractive lady from Long Island was a Judo and Karate instructor. In the second game, Bennett masterfully guessed that the gentleman from Florida was a dentist who specialized in horses. In the mystery guest round, Bennett correctly identified Republican Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois. Senator Dirksen was on the show to promote his record "Gallant Men." In the final game of the evening, Bennett completed his personal perfecto by correctly guessing that the gentleman from New York was a professional table tennis player. This definitely showed Henry who was boss and perhaps Henry learned his lesson not to tick off the Squire of Mount Kisco. - Sargebri (2008)

      GOODBYE (AND GOOD RIDDANCE) HENRY MORGAN!!! This was "essentially" Henry Morgan's final appearance on CBS WML and he definitely went out swinging. His loutish behavior was probably the reason he wasn't asked back more often. However, he did make one more appearance on the CBS WML, but that episode had been recorded prior to his appearance tonight. All must have been forgiven, though, because he would make several appearances on the syndicated WML a few years later. Also, at the time that Henry would appear on the syndicated version of WML, he was a regular panelist on "I've Got a Secret," which ran for only one season from 1972 to 1973, as well as the four week network revival in 1976. - Sargebri (2008)

      COUNTDOWN WATCH: 868 DOWN, EIGHT TO GO!!! With eight more episodes to go before the show's end, there was no mention of its imminent cancellation. - Sargebri (2008)

      FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the first contestant at two down, but Bennett essentially guessed the line. John flipped them all for the final contestant at four down because time was running short, but Bennett correctly guessed "ping pong" as it was happening. - agent_0042 (2008)
