Episode Summary

Frankie Avalon Show
In his monologue, Jack breaks his glasses in half to please both the people who thinks he looks best with his glasses and those who think without. He introduces Frankie Avalon who sings "Never Say Never Again". In a flashback to a few weeks earlier, Jack runs into Frankie at the studio and tries to get him to come of the show for free. Don Wilson passes through and comforts a crying girl by giving her several boxes of Jell-o in the integrated commercial. Jack goes to watch Frankie record "Embraceable You" and ruins take after take making various noises. The irritated producer is ready to throw Jack out until Benny accidentally comes up with their song "gimmick". The two duet on Jack's show: Frankie sings while Jack "plays" the water cooler.moreless
