The episode: “Devil Doll,” ep. 818
The riff: Sung by Tom in a lecherous-sounding cockney accent as a man dejectedly drinks at a bar.
The explanation: These are lyrics from the song “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road),” which originally appeared in the Fred Aistare musical “The Sky’s the Limit” but was later popularized by Frank Sinatra. The real joke is the adaptation of the lyrics about boozing into this dingy British film, via Tom’s silly accent and the inserting of the word “rummy.” There are many jokes poking fun at the English in general in this particular movie.
Novelty factor: Never heard of the song before, but the video of Sinatra singing on a bar set is remarkably similar to the shot from “Devil Doll.”
