Credits: Elliott Lewis (producer, director), Alexander Courage (composer), Larry Thor, Charles Calvert, Jack Kruschen, Mary Jane Croft, Tony Barrett, Hy Averback, GiGi Pearson, Bill Anders (announcer).
First Line: "When it's sunny August and you've walked the morning on Broadway, walk slow. Give yourself time to gather up the things you want to save for memories...."
Notes: What's in a name. Title – Is there a basis for name of this episode? Cert Doc & mp3 have title as Joe. But throughout the episode Joey is used. Herb & Herbie are used interchangeably by the actors, so from usage either would be reasonable. Beebe -The boy's name Beebe \be(e)-be\ is of Old English origin, and its meaning is "bee farmer". “The girl's name Bebe \b(e)-be\ is a variant of Barbara, Beatrice and Bibi. The character involved in this case is definitely a girl. Maybe it was an unusual girls spelling. Also, Nancy Lee is the one that was killed. Most titles use names of the one killed. But not all. Maybe they are writers choice.
