  • Quotes

    • 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

    • 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.
