In the small home halfway up the next block, Vic hunts for his favorite blue neck tie. He and Sade get ready for Fred and Ruthie to join them for a game of 500. How will they manage that since the game is designed for 4 to play, and Chuck and Dottie are still in the house as guests?
The two are both as loud and boistrous as can be. They are driving Sade nuts, so why doesn’t she leave them the run of the house, and go next door for some peace and quiet? She is just too good a hostess to do that. The hope is that they’ll settle down once they get moved in next doors. Surely they can’t be that loud all the time, can they? What will Fred and Ruthie Stembottom think about the boistrous couple?
With all the noise, and loud laughter, Mr Donahue phones in to complain about the shouts and noise coming from the house. The high spirited couple final push Sade past her breaking point, and she actually tells them to be quiet. Wow, i don’t think Sade has ever lost it like that before, or since.
Note: According to Jimbo Mason
According to Vic and Sade historian Barbara Schwarz, Dottie first appeared on the show, February 10, 1943 and was on there until May of the same year. You have to wonder about what the people who were listening in 1943 thought though, with Dottie and/or Chuck making them cringe for many, many days in a row. Did they turn off the radio, never to hear Vic and Sade again? Did they endure and enjoy the shows?
I’ve often tried to put myself in their place – I honestly think I would have turned off the radio and never listened to the show again. Certainly not during the time Dottie was on there.
The addition of Chuck is even worse. Far worse! (By the way, this would have been Chuck’s 3rd consecutive appearance, according to Schwartz’s records.)
Vic, as much as he hates the Brainfeebles laughing, yelling and literally running around in his house, never once says a bad word or raises his voice the entire episode!
