Episode Summary

EDIT
Edgar Bergen Show
AIRED:
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

      • Jack: (admiring the turtle in the aquarium) Say, this is a pretty big turtle you've got there.
        Frances: Oh, we find him very interesting. Jack, you know some turtles have been known to live for over 100 years.
        Jack: Over 100 years? Gee. Look how wrinkled and shriveled and dried up his skin is. How old is this one?
        Frances: Uh, 39.

      • Mortimer Snerd: (upon noticing Jack in the room) Look! The turtle got out of the aquarium!

      • Jack: (after arguing with Don) Does your wife know about that contract you and I have?
        Don: Well, yes Jack. It's no different. I've always worked from week to week.
        Jack: But if you look at the fine print, this year you're working from word to word. You could get fired between "yours" and "truly."
