The Show

At one point Hawkeye "narrates" an encounter between Frank and Hot Lips in the style of Pete Smith, who produced and narrated many humorous short films from the 1930s through the '50s.


Frank: I'm fine! I'm completely fine! The last thing I'm gonna give you two ghouls is any of my blood!
Hawkeye: Ghouls. That's a nice thing to call us vampires.
