Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga

Sally Rogers (Rose Marie) is struggling to come up with a comedy bit. The Dixon Ticonderogas aren’t helping. The pencil stage right? Perhaps a Mirado or Velvet.

I should have seen that! It was the fourth pencil that distracted me.

Poor Sally. I wonder if she ever found love, or if she just kept cracking jokes to hide the sadness.
