The Carol Burnett Show: Bank teller trainee meets comically inept bank robber

‘The Carol Burnett Show’ featured a funny sketch involving a bank teller trainee and a bank robber trainee! The hilarious scene involves Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, and Carol.

Vicki Lawrence is the bank teller trainee, as Carol stands behind her supervising. Vicki is struggling to learn the job with Carol breathing down her neck. Tim and Harvey walk into the bank, and Tim has a worried look on his face.

They walk up to Vicki, looking suspiciously at the others. Tim shouts, “This is a mess up. so don’t stick around.” Harvey looks at Tim annoyed, and whispers to him. Tim turns back to the desk and tries again, saying, “This is a stick-up, so don’t mess around.”

Harvey tells him to put his mask on, and Tim says he forgot it at home. Harvey apologizes for the holdup and explains that Tim is a new trainee for the mob. Harvey tells Tim to grab his gun from his pocket, but Tim says he doesn’t know where it is.

Harvey yells at him and goes through the steps of how every mobster should walk into a bank, explaining how a gun should be in the right-hand pocket. Tim pulls out the notes from his pocket, looks at them, and apologizes to the bankers.

Carol is annoyed, but the trainee Vicki says it’s okay and he can take his time. The two supervisors, Harvey and Carol, bond over their annoyance with their trainees. They develop a love relationship quickly, and the two trainees are kicked out because they are tired of them.

Harvey and Carol spill their secrets and troubles to each other but say they could never be together because they are on two opposite ends of work. They stall so much that the police show up, and one police officer tells his trainee to pull out his gun. The police trainee struggles and the supervising officer apologizes at the conclusion of this goofy sketch.
