(after Jack has sung his song for Lawrence) Jack: Now Lawrence, you'll have to admit that's a beautiful song. Lawrence: Jack, if that's a beautiful song, I've been hit on my head with one bubble too many.
Jack: (commenting on the concert master's backside as he leaves the orchestra) Looks like he swallowed Mickey Mouse and left the tail sticking out.
Jack's song, "When You Say I Beg Your Pardon, Then I'll Come Back To You", is a running gag. In the Jack Writes a Song episode of 12/17/1961, he tries to talk composer Dimitri Tiomkin into arranging the same lousy tune. Everyone in that episode had the same objections to Jack's oddly-chosen lyrics.
