What did the Queen say to the Ace?

“I’ve heard a great deal about you.”
______________________
In which Shakespearean play does the gift of a chest of tennis balls provoke a declaration of war?

Henry V, in Act I, Scene ii. The gift, sent by the French dauphin to taunt Henry about the follies of his youth, triggers a tirade from Henry, who instructs the French ambassador to tell the dauphin “this mock of his hath turn’d his balls to gun-stones (cannonballs).”

Lucky Partners (1958)

On this game show, host Carl Cordell read part of the serial number on a dollar bill. Players in the studio—and viewers at home—won prizes if they had a dollar bill with matching numbers. Fatal flaw: Because of the large number of bills in circulation, there were rarely any winners on Lucky Partners.

On the ’50s sitcom I Married Joan, sisters Joan Davis and Beverly Willis played mother and daughter.

Father: So you want to marry my daughter?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Well, do you make enough money to support a family?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Are you sure? There are six of us.

What names did explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark give to the rivers known today as the Salmon and the Bitterroot?

Lewis named the Bitterroot for Clark; Clark named the Salmon for Lewis. Neither name survived. But one very personal name Clark gave a river did stick: that of the Judith River in Montana, which he named for the woman he hoped to—and did—marry when the historic expedition to the Pacific coast ended.

THIS DAY IN TV

On April 30, 1939, the first small-scale experimental television broadcast—to the few research institutions, companies, and individuals in the US who owned a TV—took place. What was shown? The opening ceremony of the New York World’s Fair. It was the first-ever TV show.

A man was trying to cross the street. But when he stepped off the curb, a car came screeching around the corner, heading straight for him. The man walked faster, trying to hurry across the street, but the car changed lanes and continued to come at him. So the guy turned around to go back, but the car changed lanes again and charged at him. By now, the car was so close and the man so scared that he just stopped in the middle of the road. The car got really close, then swerved at the last possible second, stopping next to the man. The driver rolled down the window. It was a squirrel. He said, “See, it’s not as easy as it looks!”

A towering bronze likeness of what entertainer stands at the entrance to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City?

Comedian Jackie Gleason. The statue depicts Gleason carrying a lunchbox and dressed as Ralph Kramden, the blustering bus driver he portrayed on the TV sitcom The Honeymooners.
(...and awaaaay we go...)

Writer/actor Jack Webb created the cop show Dragnet in the 1950s and revived it in the late 1960s. The new show then spun off another police drama called Adam-12, which in turn begat Emergency!, about a pair of paramedics/firefighters. And a 1975 episode of Emergency! served as a pilot for yet another Dragnet-derived show. 905-Wild, as it was to be titled (based on police code for “wild animal, loose and threatening”), followed a Los Angeles animal control worker (portrayed by Mark Harmon). Most of the pilot episode showed Harmon fighting off a tiger in a grocery store and saving dogs caught in a brush fire. Apparently, the Dragnet magic didn’t transfer to the animal kingdom—NBC passed on 905-Wild.

The first experimental 3-D TV broadcast took place on April 29, 1953.
