Dirty Joke Slips Into Bath Scene!

Back when John J. York had Mary Beth Evans for a leading lady, Mac and Katherine Bell unknowingly shared a bubble bath with an uninvited “guest.”  Later, as York and Evans viewed the taped episode, he recalls, “All of a sudden, Mary Beth noticed this ‘thing’ bobbing up and down and bouncing around in the tub….The bubbles had taken on the form of something phallic! Perfectly shaped.  If Mac could only be half that man!”  And yes, the scene made it to air.  “It cracked us up to tears,” York remembers. “It sure would be fun to see that scene again.”
