  • Episode Description
  • Jack and Rochester are driven to the train station by a crying cab driver who can't bear to say goodbye. He even follows Jack inside and buys him flowers and candy. Once in the station, Jack runs into Mr. Kitzel in a kilt, a young couple who won't stop kissing, and the racetrack tout who gives him tips on which train to take. Besides being interrupted by a PA announcer making ridiculous announcements, Jack has trouble at the ticket counter because Frank Nelson is working the window. In the epilogue, Jack brings out Mel Blanc and gives him his pay check. Mel starts crying again.moreless

    • Jack: I'm going to be in New York in two weeks to do my last show from there and my guest is going to be Jackie Gleason. You see, I was on his show once and we have a sort of reciprocal agreement, you see, where I go on Jackie Gleason's show for nothing. I don't get paid. And then Gleason comes on my show for nothing. Reciprocal meaning Gleason is just as cheap as I am.

    • (Jack's buying a train ticket from ticket clerk Frank Nelson) Frank Nelson: All right, would you like the $60 ticket or the $140 ticket? Jack: What's the difference? Frank Nelson: With the $140 ticket, you ride inside.
