Both Carols (Burnett and Channing) are characters in the soap-opera spoof, "As the Stomach Turns". Burnett's character is Marian, and Channing plays Jinx (because she brings bad luck wherever she goes). At one point, Channing says to Burnett, "Oh, Jinx, I'm so unhappy" - mistakenly assigning her own character name to Burnett. In all other lines, she correctly calls Burnett "Marian". See more
