Stay tuned for the chilling conclusion of this

week's tale from Manhattan Mystery Theatre.

- Don't touch that dial. We'll be right back.

- You're off the air.

OK, boys.

You've got two minutes. Go.

Listen, pal, I'm not a boy and I don't want

to be referred to as one of the boys.

Hey, hey, hey! Guys, guys! Gal...

One at a time, huh?

- Are you two getting married Sunday?

- Only if it rains.

I got tickets for the World Series.

- When did he ask you?

- After strangling me in Curse of the Mummy.

- Say yes right away?

- Bet your sweet patoot.

- How do you spell "patoot"?

- Any way you like.

You've been in lots of shows that went bust.

How's it feel to own a hit?

I don't own her, I'm just marrying her.

No, I mean the radio show.

Sure, I'm on top of the world 'cause I got

the number one show. That's just luck.

I'm head-over-heels in love

with the best girl in the world.

That's not luck, that's God smiling on me.

When Vickie said yes to me...

From the minute Vickie said yes...

He bought a double mattress and a new stove.

- How's her cooking? Have you tasted it yet?

- Sure, but we're getting married anyway.

- Vickie, how'd he ask you?

- Give us a break.

Your fans love this stuff.

Come on, Vickie. Was he romantic?

It was like in the movies.

Honest to God.

We're walking along in the moonlight.

He gets down on one knee,

looks at me and says...

It's almost airtime, gentlemen.

OK, boys, that's it.

We're giving you

a page of coverage here.

Give 'em a break, will ya?

Can we have a level first violin, please?

- Well, Larry's certainly in good form today.

- The show isn't over.

- You can see he's fine today, Charlie.

- The show isn't over yet.

Eddy, are you there? I don't see you.

Could we hear

a little bit of the storm, please?

That's fine, Eddy.

Ten seconds, everyone.

- Say, Eddy...

- Huh?

- Is my tie straight?

- What?

- My tie, is it straight?

- Your tie's fine.

- No, but is it straight?

- Yeah, your tie is straight.

- Say "I swear to God your tie is straight".

- I swear to God.

- Thanks, Eddy.

- Sh!

Oh! It's frightening, isn't it?

- Why's he laughing?
