  • Episode Description
  • In Jack's monologue, he discusses doing filmed episodes of the series. He's interrupted by a photographer and reporter who fail miserably to take Jack's photo. The Sportsmen Quartet set the mood for an English drawing room farce by singing "Mad Dogs and Englishmen." In the sketch, Jack plays Cecil Frothingham, the handsome British screen lover, who's having a secret affair with Lady Milbank. They break the news to Lord Milbank, but he seems more interested in his stamp collection. When Cecil finds out how valuable it is, he becomes more interested in stamps, too.moreless

    • (a toast) Derrek: May the Thames never run dry! Cynthia: May we some day climb the Matterhorn! Jack: Bottoms up! Derrek: It sounds awkward, but we'll try it.

    • (to audience, introducing the sketch) Jack: The subject of this play is the "eternal triangle." David Niven will play the husband, Margaret Hayes, the wife, and I will be the lover...I know what your thinking, but nobody asked you!
