The ladies report that the Pasadena chapter of the Jack Benny Fan Club has 2000 members.
(the Fan Club ladies want to pull Jack's hair to see if its a toupee)
Jack: Of course it's real. It may be thinning out, but like the buffalo, it's hanging on.
Emma: (telling Jack about the fan club) We meet locally every week, but for the last few years, we've been holding our national conventions in Minnesota
Jack:Why in Minnesota?
Clara:Oh, we tried other places, but we find we get a better turn out when we're close to the Mayo Clinic.
As a joke, Jack Benny had appeared as a celebrity contest on the 10/8/1957 edition of The $64,000 Question. His chosen category was the violin. He correctly answered the first question (value $64) correctly, identifying Stradivari's first name and birthplace (Antonio, Creoma). When asked if he wanted to go on to the $128 question, he said no. The shocked host Hal March said no one had ever stopped after just one question and they didn't have a $64 check ready. "I'll take the cash," Benny responded. March dug through is pockets and those of the crew to scrounge up the money and Jack went on his way.
This episode was performed live from CBS Television City.
Jack makes reference to the first satellite, Sputnik, being launched by the Soviet Union on 10/4/1957. Following Dan and Harlow's performance, he says, "Gosh, what an era we live in. The Russian satellite and that dance, all in the same month!"
In his monologue, Jack jokes that he played violin at Marlon Brando's recent wedding. Brando had married actress Anna Kashfi on 10/11/1957.
