Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Writes a Song
AIRED:
Jack wrote a song titled "When You Say I Beg Your Pardon, Then I'll Come Back To You." It's so putrid, whenever he sings it, windows automatically fly open. He asks film composer Dimitri Tiomkin to come over, hoping to convince the famous writer to arrange the tune for him. Don drops by to do his State Farm commercial and insult Jack's musical masterpiece. Locksmiths also show up to try to open his vault, the entrance to which is hidden behind a revolving bookcase. Jack sings the song for Tiomkin, who thinks it's lousy. As Jack picks up the violin to play the lilting melody for him, the locksmiths begin blasting, the windows fly open, plaster begins falling and Dimitri makes a dash for the door.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In this episode, the entrance to Jack's vault is behind a revolving bookcase, down a flight of stairs so long he needs binoculars to see the bottom. It's also protected by a moat with an alligator in it.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Jack: Do you remember a song I wrote about 15 years ago called "When You Say I Beg Your Pardon, Then I'll Come Back To You?"
        Rochester:Uh huh
        Jack:Well, I'm gonna revive it.
        Rochester:You're gonna what?
        Jack:You heard me. I'm gonna revive it.
        Rochester:I don't think you can. That song went down for the fourth time.
