Quotes

[Shortly after their week-end party ended & the guests left, their telephone rang & the hypnosis began! A hypnotist tried to hypnotize Larry Appleton, earlier that evening, but it "bounced" on to Balki Bartokomous, as he was watching the hypnotist try hypnotize Larry. Larry acted like Marlon Brando, instead. It was Balki's first time thinking he was Elvis Presley. Balki spoke with a deep southern accent, sounding much like Elvis Presley]
Balki Bartokomous: How did you get this number, lady?
