On the occasion of the SAG-Awards 2006 Barbara Bain and Peter Graves
were asked to present the nominees for the best ensemble in a dramatic series.
During their presentation the teleprompter
decided it was a good opportunity for a well-deserved break:
Off female voice:

The teleprompter goes blank.

Graves (while taking out his notes): No.
Bain: Then I hope you have mine there, too!

The audience is audibly amused.
