  • Episode Description
  • Lights throughout the neighborhood pop on as Jack plays his violin at 2 AM. He's arrested for disturbing the peace and he's hauled off to the Los Angeles jail--you need an appointment to get thrown in the Beverly Hills hoosegow. In jail, he's badgered by a drunk and a pair of criminals who think he has the beautiful hands of a safe cracker. Rochester brings a lawyer he found sitting behind a desk on the street corner: Frank Nelson. Jack promptly fires him. When it's Benny's turn in court, the judge is very cranky because he was kept up all night by some jerk playing the violin. Frightened to tell the truth, Jack confesses to cracking a safe.moreless
