Trivia

During the As The Stomach Turns sequence, Carol Burnett opened to the door to find Harvey Korman as Mother Marcus. Apparently, he never appeared in rehearsals dressed as Mother Marcus and only used the voice, so the first time they filmed it was actually the first time Burnett had seen him in costume. Her priceless reaction (pausing, slamming the door in his face, then opening it again and breaking character by laughing) was completely genuine. See more »

Quotes

Hostess: [In the As The Stomach Turns sketch] You don't understand, Mother Marcus. A masochist is someone who likes to suffer.
Mother Marcus: You got children?
Paul Lynde: No.
Mother Marcus: A lot you know about suffering. I have four sons. A lawyer, a doctor, an engineer, and a CPA. Four geniuses, and not one knows how to use the telephone. You understand what I'm talking about?
