Season Three of The Odd Couple is now available on DVD and includes a number of the series’ most well-remembered episodes including “Let’s Make A Deal,” “The Odd Monks” (Felix and Oscar go to a retreat at an upstate Mission), and, possibly the most famous (but you knew that from this post’s title quotation): “Password.” The Archive of American Television interviewed several of the cast and crew behind the series; Tony Randall discusses the genesis of the “Password” episode in part four of his interview.
