Is Bunnie the preferred spelling of Ms. Swan's first name? I have my reasons for asking, all of them top secret. No, but seriously, I've seen it spelled like Bunny too, so I'm j.w.

From Alex's website:

ALEX:
The "Dancing Queen" Swan episode was teh very last Swan episode that I shot as a regular cast member. It was actually titled, "She Look Like a Man." And if you look closely, the grey haired man who gives me a feather boa after the dance number is my real father! That was Irving Borstein's first and last appearance on MADtv.


I guess that could be like, a fun fact or something, that her dad was in that episode.

1012 Swan of Hearts

Bio:
She has a dog named "Joo-Joo Bee"(sp). (I'm not sure if the dog in the customs sketch is the same or not. I'd have to check.)

I thought we had a memorable quotes in this forum. Am I wrong?

Memorable Quotes:
  • "Sometimes, I cover my body with Alpo and he (her dog) lick it off."

I looked at when you posted the message. You posted it 20 minutes after you posted about the Ms. Swan thing in the Final Episodes thread in the general section. You already knew.

I don't know for sure if she's making an appearance. Does anyone really know for sure? I was just going on what I was reading. I've learned over the years you can't believe everything you read so I wanted to play it on the safe side and say "maybe".
