ok....I wanted to ask this but I was at the show last Friday(I posted earlier about how amazing it was) question is...what happens shortly after the "Mr. Goldstone" scene or before I can't remember...when they talk about getting a cow...and one of the chorus guys says something about sex(I swear that's what he says)...but on Friday I couldn't tell if this was an add lib scene or what because Bernadette paused for SO long and she was trying to contain her laughter along with the rest of the cast...and then she said a response about it not being a REAL COW and everyone busted up on the stage. CAN ANYONE tell me what this is about? lol Or was this a blooper? LOL

In the scene, Mama Rose says that she had a dream for a new act, and she proceeds to explain the vision that she had--it takes place in a barnyard, and there are farmyard animals as well as the farmboys in the act; then, a COW will come on stage --"not a real cow". One of the boys, smartalecky-like, points to June and says "Sex at last". IT'S A JOKE!! Its not an ad lib. Its not a blooper. Depending on audience reaction, Bernadette will do a long slow look, a double take, or will ignore the smart-alec boy entirely.

As you can imagine, with an appreciative audience, Bernadette can milk (pun intended) the scene as much as she wants, comic genius that she is.
