Episode Summary

Ernie Kovacs Show
In his monologue, Jack makes jokes about finally being able to show the Gaslight sketch on his show. Ernie shows Jack his mustache collection, and has Jack tries some of them on. They all look ridiculous. Don, dressed as a Beatnik, does the Lucky commercial as a musical production set in a coffeehouse. The sketch is set in a cushy Knob Hill prison in 1970, where criminals Killer Kovacs and Benny the Louse play golf and have the warden shine their clubs. Ernie is about to be released but doesn't want to leave behind the gourmet room service, hi fi, and cha cha lessons. The guards have to physically throw him out.moreless
