Catch phrase: “Same procedure as every year”
Dinner for One,
"also known as The 90th Birthday, ... is a comedy sketch written by British author Lauri Wylie for the theatre in the 1920s.
German television station Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) recorded a performance of the piece in 1963, in its original English language...
The sketch presents the 90th birthday of elderly upper-class Englishwoman Miss Sophie... she has outlived all of her friends, and so her equally aged manservant James makes his way around the table, impersonating each of the guests in turn."
