Too bad you couldn't find the video. I love when Mrs Mel shows up with her chainsaw. The homicidal look on Mrs Mel's face is priceless. You can't beat Gilda.

Sandy: This was '75. Even the transcripts from those days make me laugh.

Cal: If I wasn't on dial-up I would. I might bring my computer to the library and use their wireless to check out some old clips.
