Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack At The Supermarket
AIRED:

Rochester is out golfing while Jack does the housework, thanks to a crooked game of gin rummy. Jack plays with Don and sticks him with the chores. Dennis drops by and sings "Let There Be Love" before Don cheats him into cleaning. Jack goes to the supermarket and has numerous run-ins with sarcastic clerk Frank Nelson, fruit seller Benny Rubin, and Herb Vigran at the meat counter. A woman is handing out samples of cake; when she leaves the display unattended, Jack sees the "FREE" sign, takes all the cakes and the tablecloth it sits on. Finally tired of Jack's pestering, Nelson shoves Jack into a cart and takes him to checkout.

      • Jack: (to Clerk Frank Nelson who just marked down the alphabet soup to 3 cents) Hey, wait a minute. Why did you make such a drastic cut in the alphabet soup?
        Clerk Frank: Because we just discovered that the alphabet in these cans is in Latin.
        Jack: In Latin? How could they make a mistake like that?
        Clerk Frank: It was no mistake. When this soup was made, that was the language.

      • Jack: And Rochester, I want to ask you something. Why is it every time we play cards, you insist on wearing that Chinese kimono?
        Rochester: Three reasons: it's becoming, it's comfortable, and with those big sleeves, I can't lose!
