Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Hunts For Uranium
AIRED:
Jack hears about the big money being made from uranium found in the desert and wants his share. After renting camping equipment from surly salesman Frank Nelson, Jack takes Mary and Rochester mineral hunting. They give water to thirsty Mexican Mel Blanc, then decide to set up camp. Eavesdropping, Jack overhears a group of men with a big map say they were digging at that exact spot in the morning. Believing they're talking about uranium, Jack gets up early and commences digging before they arrive. He's dug a hole six feet deep before he learns they're just repairing a gas pipeline.moreless

    • Jack: (salesman Frank Nelson is showing Jack camping equipment) I never had a sleeping bag. How does it work?
      Frank: Oh, it's very simple. You just crawl all the way down inside and then zip it all the way up.
      Jack: Gee, won't I--won't I suffocate?
      Mary: Jack, you're supposed to keep your head out.
      Frank: Oh, I wish you hadn't told him!.

    • Jack: (trying to talk Mary into uranium hunting) It can't be so rough, just three or four days in the desert. And look at the excitement! It'll be like the Great Gold Rush of 1849!
      Mary: Jack, you didn't find it then, you won't find it now.
