Episode Summary

EDIT
Christmas Show
AIRED:
This is the TV debut of Jack's traditional Christmas shopping radio show. Jack and Rochester go looking for gifts at a department store. Jack harasses clerk Mel Blanc, repeatedly have him re-wrap the wallet he bought for Don because he wants to change the card inside. After changing it one too many times, Blanc, now a wreck, loads a pistol and shoots himself. Jack has several arguments with surly floorwalker Frank Nelson, especially after smashing a new "unvreakable" watch with a hammer. He buys lingerie from a clerk too unnerved by nighties to touch them with his bare hands.moreless
