40-09-13 Christmas Card Salesmen - the Twins

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
Vic gets a package in the mail from Robert and Slobert Hink.

Surprise!  It's a Christmas card sample book and Sade couldn't be more thrilled (I'm being sarcastic, of course.)

SEE SOME DIALOGUE AND THE SYNOPSIS
___________________________
There are no surprises here; the cards are ones fans are already familiar with (after all, almost everyone on the show sells them.)

As a matter of fact, a few of the usual running jokes show up here as well: beef punkles not done because they were delivered late in the morning, free cole slaw at pool hall post card, Mr. Donahue sleeping/boys be quiet, and the Latin lodge nonsense.

Overall, this episode seems run-of-the-mill at best; it's probably better described as a re-hash of prior, somewhat tired, scripts.

Trivia:

+ Mr. Croucher weighs about 250 pounds.  "He's all beef", according to Rush.

+ Sade refers to the Hink twins as "Hobart and Slowbart Fink."

+ Sade lists most of the Christmas card salespeople that are listed here.
