  1. You’re not alone. Years ago, Lily Tomlin told a story on a late night show about how she’d publicly referred to “the late Wilford Brimley” and later had to apologise, in writing, to Brimley’s camp, who were deeply offended. She read the letter out loud and it was hysterical.
  2. Good God, I am genuinely stunned. What a sad, sad day. 104 though. What an incredible life and legacy.
  3. I understand, I’m particular about those things as well. It drives me nuts how many people out there don’t set their televisions to the right aspect ratio, and are happy to watch pictures that are completely distorted.
  4. Which DVD did you watch Harpo Marx on, the season 4 set or the colorised disc? The newer ILL discs use higher compression than the earlier ones, so the picture isn’t as sharp.
  5. So many have passed recently it’s hard to keep up. Joel Schumacher, Kelly Preston...
  6. Have to concur about the tith on edge. I couldn’t believe it when I found out Rainbow was his actual surname. A gay man named Rainbow born in Queens...it’s so on the nose it’s not even funny.
  7. Such sad news. I hope an investigation finds answers as to what exactly happened. They’re now saying her last act was saving her son, but she didn’t have the strength to get herself back in the boat. Something must’ve gone horribly wrong.
  8. Glee actress Naya Rivera is presumed dead after disappearing at a California lake several days ago. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-07-10/glee-star-naya-rivera-presumed-dead-disappear-at-lake/12441562 I hope she is found alive, but that appears unlikely under the circumstances.
  9. As memory serves, she answered the phone in the office and said, “Well, hello little brother!”
  10. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen any episodes, but I recall the first episode of season 4, the Flip Wilson one, didn’t mention his absence at all. Later in the season, however, there were a few mentions of him being away at college, and Kim received a phone call from him once.
  11. Compliment Neil on this one, I was merely quoting him. This was all his work
  12. So many LOL moments it’s hard to choose a favourite, but “New York based bon vivant John Dodds” makes me chuckle every time. I’m also cracking up at “Viv is Enciente” and the visual of William Frawley being so strong despite you never mentioning his name once.
  13. Looking at the earlier entries on this thread, Brock cast Bob Cummings in the role. He certainly would’ve been good. I think I kept that choice for my “The Viv Show” spin-off concepts. Going in a different direction, Red Skelton could’ve provided Viv with another wacky redhead to play against.
  14. A devastating loss. And who among today’s crop could ever be considered a worthy successor to the likes of him? The giants of yesteryear are irreplaceable.
  15. Ian Holm has died aged 88. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jun/19/ian-holm-dies-alien-chariots-of-fire-bilbo-baggins
  16. Dame Vera Lynn has passed away at 103. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-53091856 We need her songs and her message more than ever now
  17. I Love Lucy Season 1: “You take care of the ham, I’ll take care of the beef.” Season 2: “Look what happened to your washing machine!” Season 3: “Couldn’t you have made that one a seven?” Season 4: “Now, there for a minute you were commencing to sound like a real wife.” Season 5: “Carolyn, guess what? I’m going to Europe! Goodbye!” Season 6: “Well, how did that chicken get in your hat box!?” LDCH: “When Miss Bankhead is bored, Miss Bankhead will let you know.” The Lucy Show Season 1: “You open your packages Christmas Eve!?” Season 2: “He left me a little memo...27 pages.” Season 3: “Hi, Mr. Mooney!!!” Season 4: “Track team, Vassar, Nineteen-Three.” Season 5: “Don’t you take your Siesta in the afternoon?” Season 6: “I know...I’m deducting it.” Life With Lucy Season 1: “Oh no, dear. Thankfully, I was wearing this suit.”
  18. It also happened during Lilith's first appearance in season one, when she called into Frasier's show. The audience, recognizing that unmistakable voice, let out a hearty mix of laughter and applause. In those instances, it worked, because home viewers would react the exact same way.
  19. Ken Levine has revealed he was at the filming of Vivian's guest spot on Rhoda. He shares a lovely anecdote about her introduction and the ovation she received. http://kenlevine.blogspot.com/2020/05/entrance-applause.html
  20. Ken Osmond, who memorably played Eddie Haskell on Leave it to Beaver, has died at 76.
  21. Holy cow, she really DIDN'T have much of a nose! I'd never really noticed before.
  22. OMG these are hysterical. I especially love the disease really being Gobloots and Gary being stingy with the masks. And the "uh-oh" reaction to Trump, somebody should actually splice those in to his press conferences (Yoo-hoo, Neil!) YouTube sees explosion of drunken viral videos as "Vitametavegamin" revealed to prevent COVID-19 Vance delights as quarantine measures keep her away from Frawley, all scenes shot individually Little Ricky, Stevie Appleby diagnosed with coronavirus, mothers turn recovery into competition Owner of Unique Employment Agency self-isolates after displaying symptoms, turns out to just be Peeper-Poopers Wednesday Afternoon Fine Arts League stages televised charity concert for COVID-19 during lockdown, redhead slammed for choosing "Downtown" as solo "Here's Lucy" cast livestreams script reading, Morton decides to stick with format post-lockdown to cut costs
  23. No need. This is just to share any quotes you may remember from each season. If you want to guess, you're welcome to, but otherwise just share any lines you recall.
  24. I think Ethel ordered the same meal as Lucy. It's always bugged me that Lucy never received her Derby Tossed Salad.
