Episode Summary

Bedroom Burglar
Jack comes home for dinner after a long rehearsal. Polly the parrot, who Rochester had sucked into the vacuum cleaner earlier, squeals on the butler for having eaten one of Jack's bananas. Don drops by with the Sportsmen to audition their commercial for the next show. After quieting a drippy bathroom faucet, Rochester rocks Jack to sleep in his combination bed/cradle. Once he's snoozing, two burglars come in through Jack's bedroom window to rob him. They aren't expecting the room to be booby-trapped. After being squirted with seltzer and punched in the face, they're ready to leave, but it costs them money to open the coin-operated window.moreless
