Does anyone remember a classic Electric Company musical skit called The Queen's Quartet? It's starts off with the Queen of England, played by Judy Graubart. She sat in her throne and wanted to spend some alone time with her captain of the guards, played by Skip Hinnant, who was in the throne next to her. Just then, the royal cook, played by Jim Boyd, wanted the queen to try his newest dish, then the royal seamstress played by Hattie Winston wanted to stitch up her royal dress. The royal hairdresser played by Rita Moreno stated doing the queen's hair and the royal doctor played by Morgan Freeman wanted to give her a check up. She tried to tell her servants to go away because she wanted some alone time with the captain, but they wouldn't listen and started to sing while a harpsicord played. "We're the very very best, in the north, south, east, and west. We're the finest you can bet, we're the best you've ever meet, we're the Queen's Quartert!" Rita: "HA HA HA!" "We're the Queen's Quartet!' SEAMSTRESS: "It the queen should get a tear in her royal underwear, I will sew sew sew sew sew!" DOCTOR: "If the queen should ever wake with a royal tummy ache, I will poke poke poke poke poke!" HAIRDRESSER: "If the queen should get a curl in her royal purple (hur), I will rinse rinse rinse rinse rinse." COOK: "If the queen should ever wish for a royal meatball dish, I will cook cook cook cook co-oo-oo-ook!" Then all 4 servants got together and started singing the opening again while twirling handkerchiefs and bowing to each other. While the queen and the captain just sat there annoyed.
