    A TV line I loved: "It's just an old pocket in some apron that I'll never use."

  1. Dammit, Christopher Burr! I can't believe I missed this one.
  2. This is barely Letterman-related, but a writer at Stat News looked at Trump on Letterman in 1988 and 2013 to listen to the (d)evolution of Trump's speech. I don't have subscription radio, so I was googling for any scrap I could get of the Apron Strings show, and I found these: https://www.facebook.com/siriusxm/videos/10155007257608387/ https://www.facebook.com/SiriusXMOutlawCountry/videos/10155009360278387/ http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/david-lettermans-interview-with-elizabeth-cook-six-things-we-learned-w483923 and in the comments to the RS article, the archivist Don Giller linked to the discussed Jerry Garcia moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4skH27r5dLc
  3. Ugh, "preforations" was so obviously what he said immediately. I wish they'd rejected it right away. And Dr. Oz is a dangerous quack and I wish he weren't on the show. But yay, tennis!
  4. "I have absolute power" is an E.T. reference.
  5. Premieres Sunday, June 18 at 8/7c. Five episodes. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/shows/my-mother-and-other-strangers/
  6. Remember how resistant she was to Amy suggesting menopause as the reason for her symptoms, and how happy she was to learn it was a heart attack? He's right about daylight saving time, I tell you!
  7. Thanks. It's been so long now that I don't know if it was bad captioning or me figuring out that there is a plant called false rhubarb.
  8. Sister Winifred made Nurse Crane the egg. I wouldn't have remembered who it was had it been anyone else,* but it was the only other person in the car at the time of the accident. *Well, maybe Sister Monica Joan, because she should not be cooking!
  9. It's Sophia's choice for me! I use "Picture it: ____" in real life.
  10. Jeopardy! is one of the shows Raymond has to watch!
  11. *Gasp!* Impossible! What sorcery is this?!
  12. It doesn't seem that strange to me for the period. People didn't always treat children like they do today. I feel like I've seen other WWII shows where well-off people with room to spare took in a child without taking care of the child, often with a servant being the only one who is nice to the poor kid. I think an early Foyle's War had a child who was running around unsupervised and no one cared where he was. And then he tripped an explosion. :(
  13. You got it: "any big waterfall." That's it. (3 A's was the category.)
  14. Come on!
  15. I don't know about it being on Everybody Loves Raymond, but I do know that it was Ray Romano on SNL. I don't have a hulu account, but this is supposedly it: https://www.hulu.com/watch/124974
