I'd like to know if the hotel Dick (alan melvin - another great low part tv actor) was aware of Barneys Judo learning already (dont have the eps in time listing) - if he was Barney shouldnt have been afraid of him:)

11 was a trick question should have focused on one of the characters. Andy was still a part of the scene.

The idea was Barney, tries to be a big shot and orders off the menu apparently written in French. While Andy, who can't read French either, just asks for what he wants (steak, baked potato and green beans) while Barney points to items on the menu and the waiter replies in English.....Snails and Brains...
