Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Gives Johnny Carson Advice
AIRED:
Jack and Johnny Carson exchange compliments with each other. Johnny says that Jack is his idol, but he has some constructive criticism. He tells Jack his delivery is too slow and accuses him of stealing all of his mannerisms. Jack is insulted! As Johnny begins a monologue, Don interrupts and does a Lucky Strike commercial. In the sketch, a frightened Jack runs home and turns off the lights, telling Rochester he's being followed by a man in a trench coat. A couple of rocks come through the window with notes attached telling him to leave town. The police capture the stalker; it's Dennis Day, angry because he wasn't on the show this week. In the epilogue, Dennis sings "Love and Marriage" with a new verse called "Jack and Money". Jack has one line in the song, forgets it, and starts laughing.moreless

      • Jack: (introducing his guest) During rehearsal one day this week, I was coming in, and there's a young fellow here who does his own show for CBS. And his name is Johnny Carson. Now, as a rule, I do not rave about other comedians. But this fellow has everything it takes to become a great success. And he's so young, too. It's frightening!

      • Johnny: (giving "constructive criticism") Jack, I'm kinda concerned with that, that long "take" you do at the audience.
        Jack: You mean that you don't like that after I tell a joke, the way I stare at the audience, huh?
        Johnny: I always have the feeling that you're surprised they're still there.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The note attached to the second rock thrown through the window says Jack has 30 seconds to think over leaving town. The lights go down except for a spotlight on Jack as suspenseful music plays for a half minute. This is a take-off on the quiz show The $64,000 Question.
