Everyone has a special way of overreacting when comedian George Burns shows up at the diner; Mel (Vic Tayback), for example, serves George coffee that's a few degrees hotter than Hades. Even more troublesome, the impressionable Vera (Beth Howland), having seen the movie Oh, God! three times, is convinced that Mr. Burns (who of course played the title role in that film) is the actual Deity--and no amount of argument can persuade her otherwise. This episode is highlighted by a verbal exchange between George Burns and Beth Howland that is a spiritual carbon copy of a routine performed by Burns and his late wife Gracie Allen in the 1933 film International House.
