Episode Summary

EDIT
How Jack Found Mary
AIRED:
A writer visits Jack at home and hears the story of how Jack found Mary Livingstone in the fall of 1932. In the flashback, a brash, young Jack goes into the May Company department store to buy a shirt when hosiery counter clerk Mary catches his eye. He flirts shamelessly with Mary while she and her co-worker, Sally, give him a hard time. Finally, she agrees to meet Jack that evening for dinner and the rest is history. While Jack is posing for photos with the writer, Don and the Sportsmen Quartet drop by. Rochester joins them for a song and dance number.moreless
