Highlights of this eighth-season premiere include: guest Jim Nabors as the "Ringo Kid", a gunslinger who challenges the quick-draw machines to a penny arcade; a married couple (Carol, Harvey) get carried away in a binge of honest mutual criticism; musical performances from Jim ("One Life") and Carol ("Just a Gigolo"); and for the finale, a salute to the days of vaudeville.
