Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack As A Child
AIRED:
Jack's monologue is interrupted by an elderly fan who asks him to kiss her like he'd kissed Marilyn Monroe. Rochester tells Jack that the reporter writing his biography is waiting backstage. The show flashes back to Jack's childhood. Young Jackie argues with his father (played by Benny) about being a musician for the love of music, not for the money. The little kid is shocked by the idea. The Benny family's friends and relatives gather for the weekly Sunday musicale. In a commercial, The Sportsmen Quartet sings a modified version of "By the Light of the Silvery Moon."moreless
