Episode Summary

EDIT
Cafe Skit
AIRED:
Jimmy and Gloria Stewart plan a romantic New Year's Eve at a French restaurant. Their night is destroyed by a self-invited Jack and his uncouth date, Mabel Flapsaddle, a telephone operator at CBS. Jack and Mable make a spectacle of themselves by dancing like goons, tripping waiters and fighting with other patrons. Mable causes Jimmy to squirm when she serenades him with a loud rendition of "You Belong to Me." The evening is made when her pal from work, Gertrude Gearshift, shows up with her doltish boyfriend who's been in high school nine years.moreless

      • (commenting on Jack's dates)
        Gloria: Gosh, I don't mind Jack so much, but those girls he brings with him. Do you remember the one he brought to Barbara Stanwyck's party?
        Jimmy: Oh yeah...the one who ate asparagus like a sword swallower.

      • (commenting on Jack and Mable's lousy dancing)
        Gloria: Look at Jack now.
        Jimmy: Yeah, what kind of dance is that he's doing?
        Gloria: The Turkey Trot.
        Jimmy: Well, he's certainly got the turkey to do it with.

      • (at the French restaurant)
        Jimmy: Wait a minute, Jack. This is my party, I'll pay for it.
        Jack: No, no, Jimmy. I want to pay for it.
        Jimmy: Jack, I'll feel better if you let me pay for it.
        Jack: Well, if your health is involved, go ahead.
