  • Episode Description
  • In the monologue, Jack talks about his Christmas. Recalling last New Year's Eve, Jack has a big night planned with his date, Gloria. The cast has gathered in Jack's dressing room where Bob Crosby and the Sportsmen perform "Let's Start the New Year Right." Gloria calls and cancels at the last minute. A lonesome Jack wanders the streets, stopping in for coffee at Nick's Cafe. The waitress is Gloria, who had to work. Jack heads home to find Rochester in formal attire, ready to go out and celebrate. Rochester won't leave Jack alone on New Year's Eve; he cancels his plans and stays with Jack. The two old friends drink champagne and ring in the New Year together.moreless
