Goofs

When the girls arrive at the TV studio a dance troupe is on doing a dance introduced as "the bop", but the style of dance they are doing wasn't created until 1964 by Bobby Banas when he performed it with others to the tune of the "Nitty Gritty" on the Judy Garland Show. See more »

Quotes

Abe Weissman: I was just thinking about the irony of tenure.
Simon: What irony?
Abe Weissman: Well, for instance, the fact that I could take this cheese-knife, and stick it in your eye, and the university would still have to pay me. I'd be in jail, but I'd still be paid.
Simon: Are you seriously thinking of doing that?
Abe Weissman: [pause] No.
Simon: You hesitated.
Abe Weissman: [pause] Yes. I did.

Midge sets a toe in the water of the boob tube. Susie gets her a gig on an arthritis/rheumatism telethon. She is given a terrible spot and her archenemy, the awful comedian played by Jane Lynch tries to submarine her. Susie is present at all times and may have made a serious error. But when she hits the stage, doing clean stuff, she is quite astounding. A second plot line has to do with Abe and his tenuous grip on reality. He is filled with anger and it is starting to cause serious damage. Excellent episode.
