44-09-21 Harry Feedburn Arrives

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN, DAVID WHITEHOUSE AND CLARENCE HARTZELL

Looking "as nice" as he's "ever looked," Uncle Fletcher is decked out to meet the 9:45 pm train which carries Mr. Feedburn. Wasting the time away at the Gook house, both Vic and Sade take small shots at him.
________________________
Perhaps the most insignificant of all episodes, this one seems to go nowhere. It does however, add a piece to the ongoing Mis' Keller-getting-married story.

Trivia:

+ Among the articles of clothing Uncle Fletcher is wearing are a corduroy cap and a leather necktie.

+ We already know that Uncle Fletcher is loaded down with wedding responsibilities; another of them is setting the wedding date! He has not set the date as of this episode.

+ Mr. Feedburn was coming in on the Chicago-Alton train... meaning he was coming from Chicago.

+ Mr. Feedburn is a "well-to-do" man - meaning he's wealthy.

+ Mr. Feedburn is going to share the Bridal Suite room in the Butler House Hotel with Hank Gutstop; a private fee was negotitiated but the Butler House folks will know nothing about him staying at the hotel.

+ Hank Gutstop is inexplicably still working as the house detective at the Butler House.

  1. This is the episode that showed me just how funny Vic and Sade's whimsical world really was! A simple story of coming marital bliss gradually blossoms into an unbelievably complex tangle, knotted by the stubborn will of an outsider. Who says big things don't happen in small towns!

  2. I think we all may be hooked on that one episode where we "figured it out" that these weren't mumbling people talkin' about nothin'.

    My favorites tend to be near the first of the series for that reason.
