Mike n Rachel in DC: Maybe she can learn to play the bagpipes while she’s there…

Mike n Rachel in DC: No, Irish do bagpipes too…they’re all over the place!

Rush: Well, Hawaii Steve has offered some diverse extras for this evening!
Dona: I’m going to study more before the next one.
Matt1: Can’t wait!
Rush: he was able to find a few things that at least vaguely relate to our movie for tonight, “The Chinese Cat”!
Rush: The first is a cartoon about a taxicab family, in honor of Birmingham Brown’s own taxicab that plays a part in tonight’s film!
Rush: I liked the idea of showing a vintage cartoon, as those were always a part of the movie-going experience “back in the day”!
Mike n Rachel in DC: eeek
Rush: Here is the correct address…
Rush: Pretty long one!
Matt1: Got it!
Rush: From 1952.

Rush: 20 seconds…
Dona: I”m glad that was all it was
Mike n Rachel in DC: looks like we’re thawed!

RickET: Mike Shayne
Mike n Rachel in DC: It would be really great if these actors could get more recognition nowadays…
Dona: Agreed Mike
Rush: And…here’s a clip from “Flower Drum Song” with Benson Fong! As I recall, the sound quality is rather poor in its lack of volume!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: I’m gonna tell my friends i have a lotta bread in my freezer (which i do: Dave’s Bread usually $6.99, periodically on sale at $4.99, & i always get 6 loaves then); i will watch my friends to see who kills me, or Foxx.
Rush: Foggy room!
Rush: A bit of bread for that bread…
Rush: Must be excellent.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Did Yellow Cab have some kind of deal with Hollywood back in the day? An early iteration of Product Placement?
Rich Maine: A coming for your loaves!
Rush: Maybe, Angel!
Rush: Or…more likely, Monogram hired a car in order to use it in the movie!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, we’re not an economist OR a biologist. Mere humble defective.
Rush: maybe they received a discount due to the “plug.”
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: This guy’s ready to get the wheels kicked out from under him.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, ya think?
Rush: Expert is merely man who make quick decision – and is sometimes right.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Ah, shuduppa you mom!
mda19083: housekeeper did a poor job dusting
Rush: Ouch! Pop is pretty blunt tonight!
Rush: BUT…the smile comes through!
Godwinshelley2: He’s still mad about #3 playing hookie
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: If all 14 Chan offspring (or limbs) spring off another 14, 1960s Chan Family Reunion would need 196 seats just for the third generation.
Mike n Rachel in DC: no one will find this bomb here on the seat
Dona: Is he carring a bowling ball?
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: UH-OH!!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Hello Kitty!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Not a Sky-View. Gonna have to wait till post-war, now.
Mike n Rachel in DC: back to fog music
Rich Maine: Why is a fun house here?
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Anybody ever hear an OTR item (Inner Sanctum or some such) called “Death Across The Board”, where the usual madman is offing people in relation to a diabolical (natch) chess game on his diabolical secret chess board?
Rush: We will soon see, Rich!
mda19083: everyone loves the fun house
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Have a Chesterfield.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: DUFFY’s TAVERN had a backward “S”, but the “N” was ol’school.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Chan is the Voice of Experience.
Rush: Once you have large family, all other troubles mean nothing.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie = cupid. AGAIN
Mike n Rachel in DC: I wonder how many children he has been responsible for beyond his 14?
Rush: The chase!
Dona: I love all the old cars
Rush: Chase music…
Rush: Me too, Dona!
Godwinshelley2: Like that exciting “walking to the cab/building” music
Rush: Pride in design back then!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Can you shout any louder, BB?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, GS. Monogram needs to up their “exciting music” game.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: GS, we liked the cab music too! Very excessive!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Time to rent a few tunes from 20th C Fox

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: They seem to have been heavy on violins at Monogram that month.
Rush: CC works on Tommy’s puzzle…
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: THREE, if you count me & Foxx!
RickET: Going to Cleveland soon
Rush: Matches blown out…
Mike n Rachel in DC: Tetragene?
mda19083: YES TETRAGENE
Rush: A cousin of tetragene!
Mike n Rachel in DC: Probably a mixture of tetragene and bowanide
Rich Maine: Deadly gas!
Hounder has joined this room
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: JUST WHEN WE GO TO LOBBY (er—kitchen) for a refreshing beverage, SOMEBODY MENTIONS TETRAGENE!!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Chan has lovely incisors. Most incisive.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, we just rub stacks together. Stacks of bread.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hello hounder!
Rush: Survival training, Angel?
Hounder: Hi there. Mom wanted out so we sat outside til it got dark. Now my computer doesn’t want to connect to interne sigh.t
mda19083: FOMO – that’s why I never even go to the bathroom during the Chan Chat
Rush: Hello, Hounder!
Rush: Missed your arrival…sorry!
Rich Maine: Take it with you mda
Rush: You somehow made it, though, Hounder!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Would a series of performances by the leader of Twisted Sister be called The Dee Tour?
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Her scarf was scarfed from a Christmas wreath.’
Rush: Or, perhaps, “We’re Just Gonna FAKE it”?
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Sing it, sister!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush:
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Sweet Caroline!
Rush: BB’s latest crush.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Anybody market that cat today?

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Oh, you mean the Baseball Diamond!
Rush: Meanwhile, atthe gang headquarters…
Mike n Rachel in DC: FUN house scene coming up
mda19083: while the cat’s away …
Hounder: Hi M n r
Rich Maine: Fun house is best fun here
Rush: Moral: “Never carry the world’s largest diamond with you into a diamond smuggling gang’s hideout!”
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Lionel Hampton woulda done this REAL good!
Rush: Well, Lionel was well-“trained.”
Rush: This is the point where CC does something we will hear about later.
Rich Maine: Military secret?
Hounder: Now my computer decided to update. Ugg
Rush: Not exactly…
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush: with REAL GLYCERIN VIBRAFOAM!

Phil: What’s he gonna’ do with those tweezers? Pull the hairs out of his nose one by one?
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: baC wolleY
Rush: BB’s “friend.”
Rich Maine: P,uck his eyebrows
Mike n Rachel in DC: The dreaded “eyebrow plucking torture” Phil!
Rush: Diamond-holding tweezers.
Mike n Rachel in DC: Idiots
Hounder: It wouldn’t connect to wifi so I was going to reboot. Now I have ablue screen that says ‘getting windows ready don’t turn off yourcomputer.’ And it’s taking a long time. Sigh.
Phil: Forget the eyebrows – go for the nose.
Rush: The gimmicks in this Monogram: The secret compartments and the gang’s number system.
Rush: Last week: the magnetic gun-triggering device.
Rush: BB giggles.
Rush: The bizarre funhouse chase…
Mike n Rachel in DC: That is a MUFF
Rush: The number system is wreacked!
Mike n Rachel in DC: oops
Rush: Just replace any broken bulbs…
Matt1: It was rigged from the beggining
Rush: Nice BB visual there.
Mike n Rachel in DC: BB in the ghost exhibit…worth the price of admission
Hounder: Bb adds a lot to the chan films
Rich Maine: Like haunted mansion
Rush: Was that set reused in “The Golden Eye”?
Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey GS…finally some good “exciting music”…yes?
Godwinshelley2: Yes indeed
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Monogram was definitely letting the Fog Workers and the Violin Section get the big OT on this one!
Godwinshelley2: And those violins get to have a work out
Rush: Busted the light!
Rush: Tommy at work!
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: EXTINGUISHED guests!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good that you could be here, Hounder, even for a short time!
Rush: However, how will he fare on his next case?
Hounder: See you next week

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Gnite, H!
Rush: See you for “Black Magic.”
Rush: Take care, Hounder.
Rich Maine: The bishop did it!
Rush: Our best to you and your mom.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Inferior people should not be employed. The great leader vests families with fiefs.
mda19083: i thought the butler did it
Mike n Rachel in DC: $20 Gs to Chinese War Relief!
Rush: That would equal $400,000 today!
Mike n Rachel in DC: That means that Charlie wagered $40,000. He’s really come up from the $0.25 he put on that horse a long time ago.
Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Pale as a ghost!
