Episode Summary

EDIT
George Burns/Spike Jones Show
AIRED:
Recalling his Carnegie Hall performance, Jack has jitters before the show. Spike Jones drops in backstage because he couldn't believe Jack Benny was really playing there. Trying to relax, Jack dreams that Felix Mendelssohn compliments his violin playing. In a nightmare, the Devil (George Burns) offers to make Jack the greatest violinist of all time; naturally, there's a catch. Jack begins to play with the orchestra, but the conductor is replaced by Spike Jones. The orchestra begins playing wildly and Jack has to be carried offstage on a stretcher, still playing his violin.moreless

      • (after a particularly lousy joke, George turns to the audience)
        George Burns (as a devil) : Ladies and gentlemen, in spite of that last line, I want you to know that Gracie and I are still going to have a very funny show tomorrow night. Don't miss it.

      • Jack: Oh yeah? What makes you devils so sure you're going to get all my money?
        George Burns (as a devil): Because we know you're going to find some way to take it with you, and with that load you couldn't possibly go up.

      • (visiting backstage)
        Spike: I only came back to prove to myself you were here. When I looked up at the marquee and saw "Jack Benny-Violin Soloist," I just couldn't believe my eyes.
        Jack: Well, it surprised a lot of people.
        Rochester: The man who put the sign up fell off the ladder!
        Jack: He did not! He jumped, and you know it!
