Episode Summary

Amateur Show
Jack discusses his holiday; The band gave him a 5 karat ring, but the cops took it back, Rochester went out with the Mills Brothers, and Dennis gave him a mackerel on a fish hook. The first amateur act is a lousy musical group, the Tijuana Troubadors, with Mel Blanc. Mel and Jack do their "Si/Sy/Sue" routine.
In the Lipton Tea commercial, Don plays piano while his son, Harlow, sings "One of These Days" as Sophie Tucker. Jack runs Harlow off his stage.
Using her married name, Nanette Fabray shows up with a violin case. She pulls out a saw and plays it as Jack accompanies her on "April Showers."
At the close, Jack introduces Mel Blanc, congrats Nanette on her new series, and Harlow on his Sophie Tucker impression; Harlow says he was doing Nelson Eddy.moreless
