Here's an actual scene from an episode of the Stockard Channing Show:
Susan suspects a nearby health food restaurant is up to no good. But Brad loves the sandwiches there and refuses to believe that the restaurant is anything but on the up-and-up. Susan decides that she's going to go in disguise to the restaurant to find the truth. Brad asks her to pick him up a sandwich. She leaves. He cries out after her, 'with extra wheat germ!!!' She pounds on the door in reply. The studio audience errupts into deafening laughter.
This show really wasn't any more entertaining than anything else on tv those days. But Stockard was funny.
