  • Episode Description
  • Jack, Rochester and Polly the parrot are driving to Palm Springs in Benny's prehistoric Maxwell, planning to meet Mary and Don there. Stopping at a gas station, attendant Mel Blanc ridicules their ancient vehicle. Upon arrival, Jack is so eager for a dip in the pool that he leaps from the diving board without noticing that it's drained for cleaning. Jack is stuck bed with injuries for the duration of his vacation. The hotel's doctor, Frank Nelson, tells Mary to keep Jack's blood pressure up by showing him the bill every hour. The rest of Benny's trip is made more miserable by snide comments from Mary, Rochester, and Don.moreless

    • Mary: Doctor, is it serious? Frank Nelson: Well, it all depends. In cases like these, there are many contributing factors: natural vitality, physical strength, recuperative powers, age-- Mary: Keep going. There must be something in Jack's favor!

    • (being examined by doctor Frank Nelson) Frank Nelson: Open your mouth. (inserts tongue depressor in Jack's mouth) Jack: Hmmm, this tastes good. Frank Nelson: You should have tasted it when the Popcicle was on it!

    • (at the hotel): Jack: Don, how did you know when I got in? Don: I saw the manager parking your car. Jack: Oh, where did he put it? Don: In front of another hotel down the street.
