Episode Summary

Edgar Bergen Show
Don opens by giving Jack a ridiculously pompous introduction. This leads to an argument because it made Jack sound ancient. Jack goes to Edgar Bergen's home to discuss his appearance on Benny's show. While waiting for Edgar to arrive, wife Frances sings "Them There Eyes." Jack's goes into shock when he learns the incredible truth about Bergen's dummies: they're alive. Charlie McCarthy walks into the room, followed soon by Mortimer Snerd, and Jack can only stare slack-jawed. Edgar Bergen doesn't arrive until afterward and has Jack sit on his knee to discuss the show.moreless
