At one point we were filming the dramatic finale. It was very late at night, and because of the nature of the scene, the cast and crew were a little on edge. In the scene, one of the characters is holding a woman hostage in the restaurant and threatening to kill her, tables are being turned over, and people are hiding behind the lunch counter in the restaurant. It is a very intense scene. During one take, Bob Zany poked his head above the lunch counter, looked into the camera, and improvised: “I’m sorry, I ordered a hot dog, not a hamburger.” It was very funny and probably just the break we needed to take at the moment.
