George Burns would say, “Say goodnight, Gracie”, and Gracie would reply, “Goodnight, Gracie”
New timeline: Gracie simply replied, “Goodnight”
Many remember the way George Burns ended his show in the 1950’s. Gracie Allen, was a friendly scatterbrained character. He’d turn to her and say, “Say goodnight, Gracie”, she’d reply “Goodnight Gracie”.
The thing is, wind the tape back, she only says “Goodnight”!?
The Burns and Allen show ran from 1950 to 1958 on CBS, and won many Emmy award nominations.
