Home: The Toast

It turns out Madeline Kahn learned opera because some old Italian man who visited the Bavarian restaurant in upstate New York where she worked as a singing waitress used to shout “SING MADAME BUTTERFLY” at her from the audience, so never forget that life may still have a few surprises in store for you too.

Also: C. Nelson Reilly’s laugh in the background! What a wonderful world.
