  • Very underrated episode--I was in tears laughing--every bit as good as PG Wodehouse and Agatha Christie.

  • Perfect (uncanny) impression of Gore Vidal. I suspect most of your young audience may not get it. One of the funniest episodes of DAP.

  • Never one to question Mr. Wells, but I was confused as to how to Mr. Vidal would know if Jack Klugman was dead when he died 5 months after Mr. Vidal.
