Storyline

It's Friday evening, Bill's wife is out of town and Joe has agreed to spend the weekend with him for some R & R, starting with a little pinochle with two neighbors. The next day the partners plan to "sleep in, watch the ball game on the tube, and have a dinner fit for kings. We're gonna live like sultans for two days, without harems, of course." What could go wrong with this plan? Written by bobbymaxwell

Friday Breaks Character
6 November 2014 | by (West Bend, WI.) – See all my reviews

There are two instances in this particular episode where Friday breaks character. The first one is where Gannon wakes up from a nap and asks what time it is. When Friday says it's 4 o'clock, Gannon answers "Well Joe, what in the world is the matter with you? Friday is barely able to get the line out, "Well nothing, not a thing." He is obviously trying not to laugh.

The second instance is in the kitchen when Gannon realizes he has to defrost a duck for dinner. Gannon says "I don't know why I talk to you anyways. You don't know a thing about cooking." Friday bursts out with a genuine laugh. I think Harry Morgan's portrayal of a hysterical homemaker took Jack Webb by surprise.

This interesting as Morgan has stated in interviews that Webb was very cost conscious, and wanted everything in one take. On more than one occasion Webb chastised Morgan for joking around on the set, as a waste of time and film.
