    • Jack: (reviewing his tickets after having them validated) Wait a minute! I had a round trip ticket and this is only for one way! Ticket Clerk Nelson: Well, you can't blame me for trying.

    • (Rochester has accused Jack of ridiculously cheap behavior) Jack: Rochester, why are you standing here making up these silly jokes? Rochester: It may be your second show of the season, but it's my first!

    Notes (2)

    • Artie Auerbach was scheduled to appear on this episode in his recurring role of "Mr. Kitzel". That was not to be as he passed away on the Thursday before this show (10/3/1957) of a heart attack, having been admitted to the hospital the day before.

    • This episode was telecast live from CBS Television City in Hollywood.

    Trivia (2)

    • Robert Culp appears in the epilogue to plug his new CBS series Trackdown.

    • The reviews of Jack's season premier show have been flying in--through the front window, attached to rocks.
