33-09-15 Thimble Club Inspection Trip

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
It's a typical morning, or is it?: Rush gets ready for school. Vic gets ready for Consolidated Kitchenware. Sade gets ready to go to the C and A Shops.

SEE SOME DIALOGUE AND THE SYNOPSIS

This "sounds" like the family we know and it might be about now that writer Paul Rhymer was getting in the swing of things - molding the Gooks into the family we look back on now and know and love.

Sade fans may not like this but the Thimble Club has just been introduced in 'Vic and Sade' and we can see that it's an educational experience. During these early years, it's quite likely Mis' Appelrot was the President of the club. She set the bar high for the ladies, hoping to educate them by taking them on tours of local factories and having special guest speakers come to talk to them.

However, when Sade took over the reigns of leadership, the club seemed to pretty much turn into a gossip pit.

Sade's prodding of Rush to eat his egg yellows "sounds" like Sade more than anything else we have read about in the early days of the program.

Trivia:

+ I'm fairly certain this is the only evidence we have in any episode where "breakfast" is mentioned.

+ In the script, it appears that 'Yamilton' is misspelled as 'Hamilton'. It could be a different store, but I doubt it.

+ The show's ending - about the Johnson baby being a surprise (which Sade seems to dance around) might have been Paul Rhymer writing on the social edge - or maybe not. It's just impossible from the notes we have to know if that's the case. However, there's something socially sketchy (for the year, 1933) going on at the end of the episode, for sure.
