Just watched this episode on German TV and was laughing almost all the time :laughing What a funny kind of play of all the actors...

But what does "Ducky" mean? I couldn't unterstand the meaning behind??

I love Clementine and I don't blame her for chasing after Ben! A bit of a silly episode but fun to watch.

Tough to explain ... The way Clementine was using it, it's an endearment like sweetie, sweetheart, dear, darling but it's not used anymore.
The way the word is used in the Episode Guide, it means charming or delightful. But, again, the road is no longer used in common vernacular.

This is a fun episode filled with several twists and turns but that accent puts me off. Listening to Beatrice Kay in Burma Rarity is like listening to Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins.

Thank you for your Explanation. I think I got it right now and at the same time I try to put it into the unusual-idioms-folder in my mind :roy

A fun, humerous episode. I just love to see Ben's discomfort around Clementine and I especially love how the boys tease him about her.

When Clementine puts Hoss's hat on Ben and she draws the shade down, you can almost hear Ben scream...

Just recently watched this one and laughed all the time, particularly that scene where Hoss lifts that weight to imitate the man on the poster and ends up crashing that table is hilarious ( + Ben getting out of that chair!!!!). And Joe´s face when he realizes they have traded the REAL burma rarity for some supper and need to get back to that chief as fast as possible :very happy .
Hope there will be more like this one (I am watching season three now)...
