Time for a new clock..?

Too funny.. just got this in an email. HAD to share !!! :D

***The other night I was invited out for a night with "the girls." I told my

husband that I would be home by midnight, "I promise!"

Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easy. Around 3

a.m., a bit blitzed, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the

cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed 3 times. Quickly, realizing

my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really

proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution (even when

totally smashed), in order to escape a possible conflict with him.

The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, and I told him


He didn't seem disturbed at all.

Whew! Got away with that one!

Then he said, "We need a new cuckoo clock"

When I asked him why, he said, "Well, last night our clock cuckooed three

times, then said, "Oh. Shit,", cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat,

cuckooed another 3 times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped

over the cat and farted." ***

WOW !!! Danameg.... so good to see you BACK !!! Whooooot ! :kiss

I told it as joke at the christmas party the other night.

MD terminator you have absolutly nailed Julia I don't know if you have total recall or what but I remember tha episode as well as the when she told off the guy I can't remember the name but it was

Oh yes we know who you are you are the guy that is everywhere that women meet to spend time together and try to but in etc. list that one if you know it.

I beleive this is the one you're looking for.

As for Julia's "Lights out in Georgia" monologue, people actually memorize it. I went to a gay bar with a couple of my friends and the folks at that place actually stand up and recite it from memory :) I beleive they showed a clip of this during their reunion special.

I thought I was the only one who knew this by heart, and had recited it on more than one occasion!

RAY DON: Excuse me, but you lovely ladies look like you're in need of a little male companionship.

JULIA: Trust me when I tell you that you have completely misassessed the situation at this table.

RAY DON: (laughing and sitting down) a sense of humor...........I like that..........and you are?

CHARLENE: Charlene Frazier.

RAY DON: No kidding! I have a sister named Arleen.

CHARLENE: Really? I have sisters named Marlene, Harlene, and Darlene.

MARY JO: I have a brother named Skip.

RAY DON: Allow me to introduce myself..............Ray Don Simpson.

JULIA: There's no need for introductions, Ray Don, we know who you are.

RAY DON: (smiling) You do?

JULIA: Of course. You're the guy who is always wherever women gather or try to be alone. You want to eat with us when we're dining in hotels, you want to know if the book we're reading is any good, or if you can keep us company on the plane. And I want to thank you, Ray Don, on behalf of all the women in the world, for your unfailing attention and concern. But read my lips and remember, as hard as it is to believe, sometimes we like talking just to each other, and sometimes we like just being alone.

I'm gon put a little something together here for ya'll...

What do they call Julia? The TERMINATOR.

MD Terminator? Are we gettin it :)

-Dave:chuckle :roll :roll :roll :chuckle

Later Ray Don was the tax auditor and she was trying not to be recognized and it went pretty well until she said his name.LOL

I thought Charlene did a FANTASTIC job in that episode when she pulled everyone into the stock room and attempted to jog Julia's memory about who the tax man was.

Whenever I remember this who monologue I hear it in Charlenes voice, especially the part where she says "Oh, we know who you are, Ray Don."

Kills me every time I hear it!

:roll :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll
