“The Pig Who Came To Dinner”

August 28, 2021

Oscar loses “everything”, including Felix, to hustler Bobby Riggs in “The Pig Who Came To Dinner.” We discuss the historical significance of this episode because of its timing just weeks after the “Battle Of The Sexes” Primetime tennis match, the fact Ted thinks Billie Jean King is a horrible actress while both Ted and Garrett agree Bobby Riggs is good, Ted being confused by the exact nature of the temperature bet, Riggs’ prowess at all the events show in the episode, and the lack of clues to the passage of time in the ping pong scene.  

Here is the ad we refer to at the end of the episode.
