Quotes

Gwendolyn: For you had the perfect motive for doing away with father. I know about your gambling debts!
Reginald: Just as I know about that nasty little habit you picked up in the Orient. Eh, sister dear.
Gwendolyn: [Gasps] No, please don't! You have no idea what hell its been. Kumkwaits have become so expensive. How could I have been so stupid, stupid, stupid?!
Caruthers: [The butler, Caruthers, walks in] You called, ma'am?
Reginald: No, she didn't call Caruthers. She was discussing her kumkwaits.
Reginald: Oh. Well, I'm a leg man myself.

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, the charwoman (an animated caricature of Carol Burnett) is seen in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen mopping the floor. As the credits roll she suddenly turns and notices them and for the rest of the sequence she leans on her mop and watches them move from bottom to top (except for a brief pause to scratch her behind).

User Reviews

The BEST comedy series of all time!
28 August 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Half of the fun of watching Carol Burnett and Friends was watching the actors and actresses try to maintain straight faces during their skits, even when on the inside they were dying to burst out laughing. What made this series funny is that the actors and actresses ad-libbed most of their lines. This way, even the other actors didn't know what would be said next. I've seen many episodes of this show and each one of them keeps me laughing. This is comedy at it highest, at a time when humor was based on slapstick humor and the totally unexpected instead of sexual one-liners. If you ever get a chance to see this show, watch it. You won't be disappointed--especially if you're fortunate to see the episode where Lyle Waggoner is a prisoner of war in WWII interrogated by German officers Harvey Korman and Tim Conway.
