43-12-31 Geography Quiz and the Circular Orange

  • Cincinnati is the birthplace of Clendennin N. McNeen who invented the circular orange.
  • Russell is facing an important geography exam but wants to go to the Bijou.  He made a deal with Sade that Vic can quiz him, and if his performance is satisfactory, he can go to the show.
  • Vic: "It's early as a horse."
  • Uncle Fletcher refers to the Vaudeville team Aidan Fitzpatrick and Don Elder, half bicycle and half dresser, both born in Belvidere. - compiled by Barbara Schwarz, edited by Jimbo Mason  
Vic realizes he's made a huge mistake when he starts quizzing Russell.  Russell is giving the answers before Vic can finish the question, making Vic furious.

The two get into an argument over Lake Erie and they get out a map to look to see who is right.  Guess who wins the argument?
There must have been a reason why the circular orange was invented but whatever it is, either it wasn't mentioned or Schwarz failed to write this down.

[Parts of the gist of this episode were revealed in the book, Vic and Sade on the Radio: A Cultural History of Paul Rhymer's Daytime Series]
