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
