"Dah-ling I love you, but give me ______ Avenue."

Actually, listen closely. She sings, "Doll, I love you," not "Dah-ling."

15 out of 15. Even though I didn't feel like I watched the show, I know the theme song word 4 word.

A perfect 15 out of 15! Please make MeTV available on Roku! Due to our finances of late, I can't watch on DishNetwork. We had to downsize.

I better know the words...This was and is still my 2nd favorite comedy of all time. It falls right behind The Andy Griffith Show. I was just telling my wife that we need to get the entire dvd seasons...
