There’s happy news for Vic, and as he giggles over the letter from the lodge, Sade tries to guess what it might be about, and Russel comes home. What could make Vic so giddy? He is to do a solo march for the Missouri State Home for the Tall. Since parades and marching are one of Vic’s most favorite of hobbies, he goes into great detail about the finer points of marching, and the service that he’ll be providing for the inmates of the home. Inmates?
- Mis’ Nagle, who was not only Rush’s freakishly strong Sunday School teacher but also Russell’s, can chin herself 23 times.
- Arthur K. Van Beebunk (not named in this episode but was in an earlier one) was a boyhood chum of Homer U. McDancey.
- Vic had done some marching at the C and A Depot a couple of weeks prior to this episode.
- Homer U. McDancey has “lovely” penmanship, according to Sade.
- Ed Fife was mentioned for the first time. He’s a friend of Russell’s; he plans on going with the gang down to the YMCA to watch the fat men play handball.
