Subject: Dobie Gillis: Oberon and Titania
Saw a Dobie Gillis episode the other day with Warren Beatty as a rival
student who tries to get the girl they both want by tricking Dobie into
auditioning for a play (in which the girl will be the lead) by doing A
speech by Oberon. Maynard plays Titania. When Dobie gets to "my lady,"
everyone cracks up, and Dobie stops, defeated. The Beatty character gets
the part. Of course, he ends up tricking the Beatty character later,
and Dobie winds up with the girl at the episode's close.
