  • Episode Description
  • Jack is driving to New Orleans for a benefit concert and George Burns wants to ride along and perform. He proceeds to demonstrate his singing talents while Jack and Rochester pack. Benny's newspaper ad asking for riders gets a response from a pair of robbers who want to be picked up in front of a bank, and a bickering couple who fight over the front seat. Frank Nelson is the rude mechanic who brings Jack's car back from the garage. The Benny home erupts into chaos when another twenty people show up wanting to ride. All the while, Burns is still singing. In the epilogue, Jack parades the huge cast across the stage to the theme from Bridge Over the River Kwai.moreless
