To help Laverne fight a phobia of doing things alone, Shirley comes up with the idea of Laverne dining alone for a full evening in a Chinese Restaurant. Hopefully the owner and the entertainment will...
Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney were best friends and roommates coping with dates, neighbors, and each other During the late '50s and early '60s they worked as bottlecappers for Shotz Brewery in Milwaukee. They moved to Burbank, California in 1965 to start a new life when they got replaced at the brewery by an automated bottlecapper.Written by
Penny Marshall would direct Eddie Mekka (Carmine), David L. Lander (Squiggy), and her brother Garry Marshall (series creator) in A League of Their Own. See more »
Two working women living together for years would be highly unusual in the 1950s/1960s. So unusual that if they were not a couple (as would be suspected) or related, the peer pressure would be enough to force them to end their domestic setting. See more »
Laverne, I'm telling you, flying is safer than driving! Nobody has ever crashed into a cloud!
Laverne De Fazio:
Yeah well nobody ever fell 40,000 feet from a DeSoto either.

When this show started out, it was hilarious and stayed that way for many years, but when the show moved to setting to California, it lost that special magic that it had. Also, what hurt the show is when Cindy Williams left the show--it just was not funny with Penny Marshall trying to carry the show alone. Phil Foster was one of, if not the worst, actor ever on a regular television show. He talked as he had a mouthful of mush!! Whoever said that he was funny or could even act?? Heck, anyone can act like him--all you have to do is say "What, Who, Where" in a loud voice with your tongue hanging out of your mouth!! There!! You have just done an inpersonation of Frank De Fazio--lol
