  • Episode Description
  • Mary comes over to go with Jack to the racetrack. Dennis shows up to tag along and inform Jack that he's suing him for calling him stupid. Dennis sings "If I Loved You." Jack and Mary try to grab lunch at the racetrack restaurant, but Jack irritates the waiter with his demands. Racetrack tout Sheldon Leonard tells Jack which table to eat at. Dennis explains his insane system for betting, but Jack intends to bet his big $5 on Speedy Girl. Benny runs into his sponsor, Mr. Lewis, and convinces him to bet on Speedy Girl as well. In the meantime, Jack changes his bet to Mr. Lewis' original horse. Lewis loses $100; Jack proves such an insufferable winner that Mary knocks him out with one quick punch.moreless

    • Dennis: (Dennis tells Jack he's suing him for $50,000 for telling people he's stupid) From now on I want to be addressed with dignity. My name is Dennis S. Day. Jack: What does the "S" stand for? Dennis: If I told 'ya, I'd loose my case!

    • Jack: (sweating in a steam cabinet) Gee, I think I've had enough. I'd better get out. Rochester: Well, I better not open it for a couple of minutes. Jack: Why, haven't I had enough? Rochester: Yeah, but the potatoes aren't done yet.

    • Waiter: How about hamburger? Jack: Well, is the hamburger fresh? Waiter: Fresh? It was in the first race! Jack: Cut that out!
