Today, I spent my evening catching up on BETTER CALL SAUL, and made it as far as Episode 5 ("Alpine Shepherd Boy").  Toward the end of that episode, Mike Ehrmantraut was watching a movie, and from the brief snippet of audible dialog, I could tell it was THE AWFUL TRUTH.  (I knew there was a reason I've maintained a soft spot for Mike, in spite of everything).

I started this blog to become some kind of expert of screwball comedies.  I think this anecdote proves that I am now an expert.  Of some kind.  The kind who can name that tune, movie-wise.

Cary Grant wasn't even in the clip, it was all Irene Dunne & Ralph Bellamy.  That's gotta rate up there by way of difficulty.  If this had been a game show, it would have been the challenge just before the last commercial break and I would have won some really nice luggage.  So, uh, high five me.

This isn't the scene that I heard in Mike's living room, but I'm sharing it anyway...

While I'm at it, here's a little bit of Mike too.
