Ralph Kramden: [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."
Alice Kramden: "Blimey"?
Ralph Kramden: That's right, "blimey". That's the way all of those high-falutin' English talk. They use words like "blimey", "tally-ho", "yoicks"...
Alice Kramden: If you ask me, we're the "yoicks" for doing this.

Jackie Gleason Show A Family Favorite
13 April 2017 | by offycrossmSee all my reviews

Jackie Gleason, his television shows and movies (i.e., The Toy) will always and forever be etched in my memory as family favorites. Starring at the beginning and up to sadly the end were great times for us at home. We always made sure to sit and watch, laugh in awe from the comedy to the stunts by guests. All of us always made sure to stay still when the presentation of Frank Fontaine (as Crazy Guggenheim) came on. Jackie would be behind the bar, Frank would would go through his skit, but always at the very end, coming from Jackie was the familiar, Hey Craz ! How about singing us a little song. For that even the dog had to be outside, Grandmother would come down from upstairs. Mr. Fontaine would sing some lovely melody that would really stick to you and your emotions. It was a favorite and wonderful time for us and something that was left in my parents, grandmother and brother's hearts ! For me, I'm the last of the family living (at age 66) and identify with a wonderful time whenever I hear talk of Jackie Gleason's name. He was a tremendous talent, actor (I even have early films that he was in with Humphrey Bogart) and especially comedy. His ability to keep you laughing without having written lines and everything from memory was something very few (if any) today can do. My favorite comedian ? Why of course, the GREAT Jackie Gleason.
