Tod (Martin Milner) uses a quote from Jimmy Durante ("Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever your are.") in the opening scene. See more »
Curly Howard gets his say....
Yep, it's true..... during the big bar-fight, one can easily hear Curly's familiar "UHH!" from Columbia studio's sound effects dept, to which "Route 66" had access. It's one of the few bright spots in this episode.
ANOTHER confused young lady that one of our 2 heroes falls for, who wanders about aimlessly with one of the guest stars (Alex Cord), as she attempts to (get this:) "FIND HERSELF". And just when you thought the writers had gotten past this worn-out plot device.
Lon Chaney, complete with phony prosthetic arm, attempts some sort of French accent, as he laughs up a storm throughout. At least there's PLENTY of close-ups of Diane Baker in her prime, and the authors and director even let Marty Milner spank her in the kitchen in one scene.
In the final scene, Diane decides to leave home to "Find Herself"-- but she's dressed so well you'd swear she's headed out for an evening of fine dining...with the exception of the single, small-ish suitcase she's carrying.
Did they make up this script on the spot??
If it sounds like I'm fishing for something..ANYTHING... interesting about this episode, I am---so I'll stop here. LR
