Episode Summary

Jack At The Races
Mary comes over to go with Jack to the racetrack. Dennis shows up to tag along and inform Jack that he's suing him for calling him stupid. Dennis sings "If I Loved You."
Jack and Mary try to grab lunch at the racetrack restaurant, but Jack irritates the waiter with his demands. Racetrack tout Sheldon Leonard tells Jack which table to eat at. Dennis explains his insane system for betting, but Jack intends to bet his big $5 on Speedy Girl. Benny runs into his sponsor, Mr. Lewis, and convinces him to bet on Speedy Girl as well. In the meantime, Jack changes his bet to Mr. Lewis' original horse. Lewis loses $100; Jack proves such an insufferable winner that Mary knocks him out with one quick punch.moreless
