  • Episode Description
  • Jack receives a call from a psychiatrist, Dr. Johnson, asking him to identify a man who keeps repeating Benny's name. The delirious man is Jack's violin teacher, Professor Le Blanc. In flashbacks, we witness the crash and burn of Professor Le Blanc as Benny's heinous violin fiddling eventually drives him insane. Jack decides the only way to cure the man is to play his instrument, and, for the first time, he plays beautifully. Realizing he's not a failure, Le Blanc regains his memory. Jack orders Dr. Johnson not to tell anyone that he's a good violinist; he makes much more money being a bad one.moreless
