  • Episode Description
  • To impress an attractive receptionist at the studio, Jack decides he needs some muscles. He joins a gym and, to keep from paying full price for membership, he talks Don into joining with him. After getting a look at Jack's lousy physique and bird legs, the gym operators aren't sure they can do anything to help him. While Jack struggles hopelessly with the various weight devices, Don sits on a machine that beats his bottom and munches on a big sandwich. Jack's ultimate solution: football shoulder pads under his jacket.moreless

    • (Jack asks why Rochester's hanging around the house on his day off) Rochester: I didn't have nobody to go out with. Jack: You didn't have--What about that girl you went out with the last time I gave you a day off? Rochester: Since then, she got married and she has two children.

    • The opening bit with Rochester lounging around while Jack tries to cook an omelet was originally staged in the episode Johnny Ray Show on 11/15/1953.
