STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND DAVID WHITEHOUSE
SCRIPT (part 1) (part 2) (part 3)
__________________We know that writer Paul Rhymer would often use the scenario of a card game as backdrop, which would enable him to write a real situation for Sade to gossip in (or in this case, drag the game on and on). The cards mean nothing to the play, other than it's a running gag that Sade hates to play and yet, does for some reason.
The "motorcycle" here has no motor... so, is it still a "motorcycle"?
* A 'Mr. Twentysixler' is said to live in Dixon. You have to wonder if this is Dwight Twentysixler, who shows up in Series 2.
* "Ted" and Ruthie used to own a motorcycle: took trips to Iowa and Indiana on it.
* Russell had recently purchased a first baseman's mitt (for $1.75). Rush had a few baseball gloves we knew about as well.
* Sade tells Vic that Mis' Appelrot refers to card suits as "suites". And she's not wrong: "suites" and "suits" are basically the same word.
