Quotes

Himself - Host: [while defying gravity] Twice I've been mistaken for a dirigible. They keep trying to deflate me. I'm certain by now you've guessed that tonight's play is about gravity and people who resist the earth's pull. You're wrong. It's about an undertaker and one of the persons he undertakes.

They Should Have Buried This One
11 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a chance for John McGiver as an undertaker to show off his eccentricities. When he finds an extremely expensive funeral of a business tycoon falls in his lap, he begins to see dollar signs. His wife, played by Shirley Booth, tries to council him. You see, before the man could be prepped, he actually came back to life and told McGiver he wanted the cheapest, most basic funeral he had to offer. McGiver and his wife are faced with their greed and the wishes of the "dead" man. There is a red herring in all of this. There is a young assistant who becomes involved with the whole thing. The weird part is that other than a bit of an annoyance, he plays no part in the scheme of things. There's also very little suspense. The fact that the dead man is able to make his wishes known makes everything so outrageous that it's hard to evaluate on a normal level. Watch it and see what you think. Very forgettable, in my opinion.
