Son: Dad, was Abraham Lincoln a great man?
Father: He was, and mind you, when Lincoln was your age, he was out splitting rails.
Son: Yes, I know. And when he was your age, he was president of the United States.
How many bodyguards were assigned to protect President Abraham Lincoln on the night he was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C.?

Only one—and he wasn’t at his post when assassin John Wilkes Booth attacked.

Commando Nanny (2004)

From 1989 to 1993, Gerald McRaney starred in Major Dad as a tough marine drill sergeant who adopts his new wife’s three children. In 2004, he signed up for the similar Commando Nanny, portraying a former marine who goes to work as a child-care provider. The WB network announced the comedy as part of its fall 2004 lineup. A pilot episode was filmed, but the series was not to be: Teenage costar Philip Winchester broke his foot during filming and had to drop out of the show. Then McRaney required emergency surgery to remove a cancerous lung tumor, and producer Rachel Sweet quit because of the delays. Down two actors and a producer, the WB had no choice but to cancel Commando Nanny before it aired.

Saturday Night Live was broadcast outside of New York only once: from New Orleans in 1977.
