Episode Recap

In this episode, Miltie is trying to talk his guests and cast into coming to the surprise party he's throwing for himself. Also, Berle isn't sure what Lawford's actual talent is, leading to a song about that mystery.
Lawford hosts the game show parody What's My Racket? with the rest of the stars as panelists. They're unable to guess the job of the first contestant, a fireman, even though he's dressed as a fireman and carrying a hose. The mystery guest is Santa. They think he's a fireman.
Channing sings "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" from her recent Broadway hit Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Maria and Carol sing "It's So Nice To Have a Man Around the House."
Miltie and Peter duet on "Anything You Can Do".
In the schmaltzy finale, Berle sings "I'll Go My Way By Myself" after realizing no one's coming to his party. The cameras follow him backstage, down to the dressing rooms where he takes off his makeup, and back onstage. That's when the cast surprises him with a party.
