Episode Summary

60 Piece Orchestra Skit
In an interview in his dressing room, Jack tells a reporter how he would rather have been a concert violinist than a comedian. In flashbacks, Jack, as a small boy and as a teen, does nothing but practice his violin. He imagines that he is soloist with a philharmonic orchestra. To the cheers of the audience and his fellow musicians, he wows them with his rendition of "Love in Bloom." Also, Jack forces an embarrassed Don to don a tutu and perform a ballet as a happy tobacco leaf. In the epilogue, in invites Ann Sothern up form the audience to plug her series Private Secretary which airs three out of four weeks with Benny.moreless
