In the end, Alvin, in variable degrees of frustration, would say, “I shall leave you at this point, Elizabeth” and would walk out of sight. The announcer would then say, “Elizabeth, aren’t you ashamed?” She would slowly nod, but then, with a slightly devilish grin, would vigorously shake her head to indicate she wasn’t!

The series, which stars Betty White and Bill Williams, revolve around young Los Angeles newlyweds Vickie Angel and her insurance salesman husband Gus Angel, who get themselves and their friends and neighbors into various comedic situations and antics.
