Although the initial guest list numbers 11, Omar invites his bridge partner Martha Rudy. Viv invites her husband Leonard and his mother. Aunt Millie invites her brother Wilbur, Aunt Beatrice, and the Reverend Harris and his wife. Mayor Bowser invites the four Bundy city councilmen and their wives. This brings the total to 26 (if Lucy remembers to include her husband Floyd). Later, Agent Thatcher announces the total guests has increased to 42. See more »

I do remember this TV movie just a little. Commenting on the other reviewer, on thing that I do remember about this show is the joke about the hors d'oeuvres. Mary Jane's character had made 50 deviled eggs that she was setting out for the president who was coming over. Vivian Vance went up to the tray and ate one as Mary Jane panicked and told her that each one represented a state and she had just eaten Kansas. Vivian Vance replied "for heaven's sake, I just ate my home state!" I didn't really get most of the jokes being just ten years old, but I do remember my grandmother laughing a lot.
