STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
|Doesn't care about Cecil|
In a future episode, the one where Gumpox's other horse (Howard's sister Bernice) dies, it is Sade that is not empathetic at all about the death. She neither cares for the feelings of Gumpox, Rush nor Uncle Fletcher and doesn't understand all the fuss. Here's an edited audio excerpt from that episode: (((HEAR)))
However, in this episode, it is Vic who can't understand the fuss. But shouldn't he be somewhat excited(?); for with a little planning, both he and Hank Gutstop could wear their star-spangled lodge robes to Cecil's funeral just as they did to Dirty Johnson's horse's funeral.
SEE SOME DIALOGUE AND THE SYNOPSIS
+ Let's assume that Miss Scott is not Mis' Scott from Virginia Avenue. Perhaps it's her daughter or distant relation.
+ Mr. Overholt being in the alley and appearing to be compassionate about Gumpox's demised horse reminds me that he was the one who found Gumpox's teeth when he had lost them (twice).
+ This is the only known episode, other than the audition, that mentions the radio.
