39-08-25 Two Tons of Coal #3

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
As we learned in 39-08-16 Two Tons of Coal #2, Mr. and Mis' Donahue are
moving back, and Sade feels that it's only fair to return the coal they previously gave to the Gooks when they moved out.  She expects Vic and Rush to do the job the next day.  Rush protests that she should have been given more notice.  Vic tries to appeal to Sade's common sense.

Again?
Rush suggests having two tons of coal delivered to the Donahues at the Gooks' expense. Vic loves this idea. Sade won't hear of it. Sade counters with, "Mis' Donahue would never accept new coal."  Yeah, whatever, Sade.

SEE SOME DIALOGUE AND THE SYNOPSIS
___________________
Rush complains that he and Vic should have been given more notice about moving the coal; the fact is, they were given nine days notice.

It doesn't appear that the Gooks and Donahues ever played "500" before 1939.  As a matter of fact, the couples weren't really that social at all, at least that we know about.  The social aspect of the Gooks and Donahues probably revolved around the ladies on their back porches ringing out their mops.  And the Thimble Club.

In my opinion, the reference to Billy Patterson in this episode is the very best of the lot.

Sade says August has a chill... I doubt it.  Low 70's or upper 60's for night time lows (Northern Illinois) do not require lighting the heater.

You ever just get the feeling that Sade takes every opportunity to make Vic's life miserable when she can?
