  • Episode Description
  • Jack's practicing his violin at home; every time he hits a bad note, the portrait of Jascha Heifetz falls off the wall. He, Mary and Rochester (his caddy) go to Hillcrest Country Club to play golf with Bob Crosby. In the club locker room, Crosby sings "Because of You." Jack doesn't recognize golfing legend Ben Hogan and begins giving him unsolicited advice on how to hold a club and hit a ball. After being introduced, Jack realizes he does Hogan's laundry. On the course, Benny swings and misses before finally hitting it into the woods. Refusing to lose a ball, cheapskate Jack takes Rochester to search for it. Two days later, they finally give up.moreless

    • (Jack makes up excuses for missing the ball) Jack: Darn those birds! Always singing around here. No wonder you can't play!. This is a fine golf club anyway, with birds all around! Crosby: Yeah, the trees and green grass...It's awful!

    • (Jack's been practicing the violin) Jack: No wonder I can't play today. Look how sticky my violin strings are. Rochester: Oh, Oh. That's my fault, boss. I forgot to wipe them off. Jack: Forgot to wipe them off? Rochester: Yeah, I used it to slice eggs this morning.
