Episode Summary

Jack Paar Show
In his monologue, Benny says he is going to follow the new CBS policy on honesty (the "quiz show scandal" was underway) and tell the truth from now on. He admits he's not really 39.
Joyce Davidson attempts to do the Lux commercial but is constantly interrupted by Don and Jack. Dennis Day sings "Climb Every Mountain." Guest Jack Paar asks Benny to fill in for him on the Tonight Show while he goes to Honolulu. Benny is hesitant, so Paar offers to show him how it's done. Dennis imitates Paar's frequent guest Charlie Weaver. In a running gag, every time someone says something interesting, Paar interrupts for a commercial.moreless
