277. “Poor Buck Henry.”

The episode:Once Upon a Honeymoon,” the short in front of “Night of the Blood Beast,” ep. 701

The riff: Empathized by Tom as a glad-handing angel apologizes and agrees with his boss like a heavenly “yes man.”

The explanation: Buck Henry is an American actor, writer and director who appeared or created TV comedies such as “The New Steve Allen Show,” “Get Smart” and “Quark.” He was once the all-time leader for times hosting “Saturday Night Live” with 10, before being surpassed by Steve Martin. As a writer, he shared in the Oscar nomination for his screenplay for “The Graduate.”

Novelty factor: I feel ashamed once again to admit that I honestly didn’t know who Buck Henry was before this.
