One of the most memorable moments in television comedy—and Jim's favorite sketch—was when Carol played Scarlet O'Hara in a Gone with the Wind parody. "The writers had originally written Scarlet runs up the stairs and then comes down with the draperies just hanging on her," Carol says. While that may have gotten a few laughs, Carol says it was costume designer Bob Mackie who came up with the idea for Carol to drape an entire curtain rod on herself.

Carol says she didn't wear the drapes during dress rehearsal to keep the costume change a secret. "So the laugh you hear is not only the audience that we had, you know, but the crew and everybody," she says. "I swear I should have invested in Depends."
