Answer:  PATIENCE

(Reminds me a little of that show from the ’90s, Northern Exposure!  I always liked that show.  It was another of those fish out of water tales.  Sorta like The Beverly Hillbillies, or Third Rock From the Sun, but it was an hour long semi-drama.  And, instead of it being a family from elsewhere, trying to understand conventional American culture, it was a – mainly – conventional American – a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn – trying to understand a quirky, but fairly diverse, rural Alaskan town.  It starred Rob Morrow, as newly minted Dr. Joel Fleischman, and Janine Turner and John Corbett.  Lots of fun characters on the show!

All of today’s clue words are old friends, and only two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Not sure if I mentioned this before, but “knotty” is one of those words that spells out alphabetically.  The answer letter layout wasn’t obvious to me.  The cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question set up the answer very well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(So far, for as long as I’ve been posting these spoilers, Ms. Hepburn is the only quotable Audrey used.  No quotes from Audrey Meadows, Audrey Smith, Audrey Pulvar, Audrey Totter, Audrey Long, Audrey Peters, or Audrey Landers???  But for now,  I’m cool with the cake quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
