[rehearsing a TV commercial in England]
And I say, "Oh, it is my good wife, Lady Penelope Farthingay, Duchess of Rathbone. Blimey, you look lovely."
That's right, "blimey". That's the way all of those high-falutin' English talk. They use words like "blimey", "tally-ho", "yoicks"...
If you ask me, we're the "yoicks" for doing this.

I was in the vocal group through the entire run, some variety and all Honeymooners shows. The only ones rerun were the first season in which they win a trip around the world. Twentieth Century Fox paid the rerun checks on those. The Poor Soul's Christmas was rerun all over the place. The word I have is that ownership of the rest of the tapes (we did, I think, something like 49 shows all together) cannot be proved, and so none of those shows can ever be shown. I'd give a great deal to experience them again. To my knowledge, only one or two of the orchestra are still living--my husband was lead trumpet. Most of the singers and dancers are still around. Marilyn Taylor was NOT around these shows. She and Jackie got together again later.
