Episode Summary

EDIT
Don Invites Gang To Dinner
AIRED:
A livid Benny blames his nasty cold on Don Wilson and wants to fire him. Don had invited Jack, Mary, Bob, and Dennis over for dinner after rehearsal, but ignored Jack's repeated advice to phone ahead and notify his wife. Once at the Wilson house, Don reconsiders and asks the gang to wait outside while he tells her some people might drop by. Jack is the last one left waiting outside when it begins to rain. Then, a robber comes at him with a gun and demands "Your money or your life!" After going over Don's contract with a lawyer, Jack decides to keep Don; Benny feels guilty over how little he's paying him. Dennis Day sings "Almost Like Being in Love."moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode contains a video recreation of Jack's most famous radio scene: a robber approaches him with a gun and demands, "Your money or your life!" Benny, of course, responds, "I'm thinking it over!"

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jack: (Don is discussing anniversary gifts he and Lois received) How'd you like my present, Don?
        Don: Oh, it was beautiful, Jack. I haven't seen any of those in a long time.
        Jack: They're not easy to get, you know. I had to shop all over town.
        Bob: What'd he give you, Don?
        Don: A bowl of wax fruit.

      • Jack: (grousing to Rochester) You're a fine nurse!
        Rochester: You've only been sick three days. I haven't had time to get a diploma.

      • Jack: (grimacing after tasting the omelette Mary made) Mary?
        Mary: Yes?
        Jack: What did you put in this omelette?
        Mary: VapoRub. You've got a cold, haven't you?

    • NOTES (2)

      • This episode was filmed 8/26-27/1955 at Revue Studios in Hollywood.

      • When Chicago viewers tuned in to watch this week's show, they instead saw a commercial for a car dealer in Inglewood, California followed by three minutes of The Eddie Arnold Show seen in Los Angeles. The problem was at the local phone company; Benny's show normally is sent from the West and an employee forgot to throw a switch for this week's East coast feed.
