About Nurse Winslow
Nurse Winslow was the hospital admissions clerk where Gloria and Mike were supposed to meet Edith. When Edith arrives to see if Gloria and Mike had arrived, the nurse, who was on the phone with her sister Bernice (played by Priscilla Morrill), who also worked in the hospital, could not find Gloria listed, for hadn't arrived yet.
When Archie arrives moments later, in blackface and tuxedo for his lodge's minstrel show, he rudely interrupts Nurse Winslow's phone call by pressing the receiver button, telling her "You are off the phone — right now!"
When the Stivics finally arrive, Gloria, amused at Archie in blackface, explodes in laughter at his appearance; everybody -- except Archie -- Gloria, the Stivics as well as the Nurse began laughing uncontrollably!
Nurse Dorothy apparently was involved in an affair with Dr. Rustin; while phone calling him, she tells him that he "can't come over to the house tonight, and that he would have to stay with his wife", due to her sister Bernice, who was going to be at home that evening.
