"Honeymooners" thread ..

    OK folks, I'm jumping into this "Anything Goes" thread stuff with this topic:

    Tell me your best memories of "The Honeymooners" (episode, words, phrases, etc.) or any memories of Jackie Gleason that put a smile on your face.

    I'll start: Didn't grow up watching "Honeymooners" because they weren't shown down in Texas, where I grew up. In college, I started watching "The Classic 39" as well as the "Lost" episodes (which were hidden in a vault by Gleason until Showtime came along and played "Let's Make A Deal" for the episodes). Anyway, I admit it: I got hooked. Sure, it's not "PC" to have a man threaten to punch his wife out nor threaten to send her to the moon. Yet the "walking speech," where Ralph says near the end of each episode how sorry he is and what a moax he's been for acting crazy around alice, does tug at my heart. That's when Ralph finishes saying, with Alice in his arms, "Baby, you're the greatest."

    So those moments are ones that make me feel good and happy.

    Plus, they're just funny episodes.

    And awaaayyyyyy we go!!!!!

    Two come to mind quickly:

    The time Ralph had to learn how to play golf, and the instruction book said to address the ball. You know what Norton said next: "Hello, ball!"

    And when Ralph was on the $64,000 Question (or the equivalent show), he prepared with Norton .. and Norton played Swannie River before every song on the piano. Then when Ralph gets on the show, the first question is on Swannie River. And thanks for playing.

    Brilliant stuff. Hard to believe Norton wasn't the all-time best second banana as picked by TV Guide.

    The correct answer. As cleverly structured as any Seinfeld episode.

    No. 1 should have been Norton or Barney Fife.

    "If my wife, Trixie is watching at home and says 'I told you so, I'm gonna belt her one, right in the mouth!"

    I won't keep going because I might not stop ...

    My favorite:

    RALPH: Norton, we are no longer friends. If you see me walking down the street, you go to the other side of the street.

    NORTON: Ralph, when you're walking down the steet, there IS no other side of the street.
