STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
Rhymer had a thing about putting mottoes on objects and allowing us to 'see' them. Uncle Fletcher had a pillow with a motto and also wrote mottoes on some huge doorstops. His landlady, Mis' Keller, had washrags with mottoes embroidered on them as well.
What's strange about it is that all of the mottoes that show up in the series aren't even remotely funny. A lot of the mottoes he shows us seem to be personalized to the point of where's/what's the humor in that? I think this was his way of telling us that he thought mottoes on objects were just plain stupid. Point taken!
[Rhymer was once gifted with a book about how to write mottoes. So either he was really bad at it or it was given to him as a joke. Of course, the joke could be entirely on us, as maybe he wrote them to be purposely not funny.]
By the way, Rhymer used to use his own neckties to wrap up his scripts before he put them away in boxes.
* The announcer's part of the script at the beginning says Vic and Sade were playing rummy. It would be hard to believe that Sade was actually *playing* cards. (see or see)
