| Jill St. John
| Character Information
Jill St. John is an American actress.
When Homer decided to become a hippie, part of his self-education in hippie culture included watching an old comedy sketch with Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller and Jill St. John. In the sketch, Bob Hope stepped onto the center of the stage and introduced himself as a hippie. Then Jill St. John sauntered onto the stage from one end, to tremendous applause and wolf whistles from the audience, probably due in part to the sight of her breasts jiggling under her snug top. St. John then invited Hope to a love-in. Hope was pleased at the prospect of attending a love-in with Jill St. John, but Phyllis Diller entered from the other end of the stage, told Hope that he would be attending with her (not St. John), and laughed loudly. Hope was visibly disappointed to hear this, as the flower in his headband drooped.
The sketch apparently took place at the end of one of Hope's shows, as after Diller delivered her line, Hope wished the audience a good night and the trio waved as the audience applauded.
