Annie Bergman: Because we don't know if they're a bunch of maniacs over there with Uzis waiting to blow away the first person to come to the door.
Gene Bergman: So, I'm the one who's expendable?

Great Show
29 April 2004 | by manzarek-1See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Mr Wilder and just happened to tape some of the series but not all of them! They are trully great and hilarious! Hope they will soone come out on DVD!Like many of his later films they are not available on DVD -> what a pitty! They only run for 1 year and it shows they made 18 episodes total! This is the only way to watch later apperences of Mr Wilder apart for some tv movies! A great genious like he appeared also on two ep. in Darma&Greg -> wached it both and he is still funny guy!
