41-05-16 Uncle Fletcher's Door Stop Plan

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON

Uncle Fletcher has an idea: use 4 foot pieces of railroad track as doorstops.

Though they will weigh 440 pounds each, they will be covered with velvet and have an embroidered saying on it:
I'm only a piece of heavy steel,
A product of the forge.
I'll hold your door either open or closed,
Step up and call me 'George.'

Though Sade worries that such a gift would create a problem for the four families he plans on distributing the rails to, Vic seems to think it won't be a problem because there will be no way of him ever moving the 4 rails (a combined weight of 1760 pounds).

Though spoken of a lot in this episode, Uncle Fletcher isn't in the episode at all!

Trivia:

 + Rush mentions bright sayings found on pillows:
  • Welcome to Galena, Illinois 
  • Conductor, get off of my foot! 
  • Stop making them goo-goo eyes 
  • Every cloud has a silver lining 
  • Ouch! Your dog-gone dog bit me on the leg again!
+ Vic mentions other witty sayings that perhaps could be embroidered on the door stops:
    Your cousin is a halfwit,
    Your brother is a slob.
    I think I'll quit the section gang
    And get another job. 
    and
    The night is dark and stormy,
    The rain is comin' down.
    I'll button up my....
    + Rush quotes Uncle Fletcher: {{{HEAR}}}
