  • Episode Description
  • The cast has gathered at Jack's house to read through the show's script. While their waiting for it to arrive, Dennis sings "April Showers". When it arrives, the memograph office has mistakenly sent an episode of The Lone Ranger. After sending the cast home, Jack reads from a history book about Alexander Hamilton and dreams he's the famous man. Hamilton has happy feet; everytime he hears a minuet from Dolly Madison's party across the street, he breaks into dance with whomever's around. Ben Franklin drops by because his kite's stuck on the roof, as does Aaron Burr, who challenges him to a duel. Burr's first shot sends Hamilton's powdered wig flying into the air.moreless

    • (Burr shoots Hamilton in a duel) Jean as Elizabeth: Oh, Alexander, why didn't you fire? Why did you let him shoot you? Jack as Hamilton: I know what I'm doing. If I'd killed him, his picture would be on the $10 bill.

    • Don as Franklin: My kite is caught on your roof. Jack as Hamilton: Your kite! It's always your kite. Well, go home and you'll get it in the morning. Don as Franklin: I can't go home. My key is on it.

    • Jack as Hamilton: (after a corny line) That's an old joke. Dennis as Burr: Not in 1804!
