Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) was a British statesman, author, and military leader, and Prime Minister of England for two non-consecutive terms. In particular, Churchill was a crucial leader of Allied resistance against the Axis powers during the Second World War, with policies and language in sharp contrast to his predecessor, the placating Neville Chamberlain. Churchill's many trademarks included flashing the "V" for Victory sign and his stirring speeches denouncing Adolf Hitler.

In a sketch on The Jimmy Dean Show, Rowlf asks Jimmy Dean to help him rehearse a love scene, playing the female role. After tenderly caressing Jimmy's head, Rowlf launches into the famous "We shall fight on the beaches" speech (delivered by Churchill on June 4, 1940). He concludes by posing dramatically, with his fingers forming the "V" sign. Jimmy quizzically asks if this is supposed to be a love story, and Rowlf points out that it's the one between Mrs. Churchill and "Winnie."
