    "Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! The crowd is running for their lives. Not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been something like this."

    It was never really explained why they did an episode where they re-did the goings-on of the first show in season two or three with the "new" Mother Carlson. I still think Venus Rising is a better name for Gordon Sims. But I learned more about the atom from that guy than any teacher I had in high school.

    The original Mama Carlson, Sylvia Sidney, had theatre commitments and Carol Bruce took over late in the first season and kept the job. So when they did those retro episodes in future seasons, they had to redo the parts of the pilot with Sidney.

    I know my WKRP :) (see sig)

    Probably one of the most underrated lines in the whole series... never fails to make me smile.
