"Thirty Helens Agree" was a brief sketch that opened several episodes of TV's THE KIDS IN THE HALL during its first season. Typically thirty women (all named Helen, apparently) would stand out in a field and chant the answer to the proposition -- such as Announcer: "Thirty Helens Agree" -- Chorus of Helens: "You can't spend too much on a good pair of shoes (or similar bromides)." Then one or two of the Helens would appear and add testimony to the stated point -- "These have lasted me for years," or similar.
Announcer: "Thirty Helens Agree" --
Thirty Helens in field: "Haste makes waste."
Individual Helen: "Don't get in a hurry (or similar)."
