Ben Matlock is a very expensive criminal defense attorney who charges $100,000 to take a case. Fortunately, he's worth every penny as he and his associates defend his clients by finding the real killer.
He used to always tell everyone "keep the dogs tied up, I'm coming home" and then end of each episode by singing "Tomorrow never comes".
Best skit was with Carol Burnett in the bathtub. Jim Nabors was a plumber and she was having problems with the drain. She kept dropping the screwdriver into the water, then he would search around in the water for the tool. The look on CBs face was priceless and classic. Pretty risqué for back then, but funny.
I go to the Indianapolis 500 every year and I can't imagine a race without him.
Didn't care too much for Gomer Pyle, save the Louann Poubie episodes. But loved the variety hour.
Frank Sutton was quite the foil in the variety show.
