Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack's Lunch Counter
AIRED:
In his monologue Jack discusses guitarist Frank Remley's drunken birthday party. Dennis interrupts, upset that George Raft got the star dressing room. After a loud crash, Dennis mother walks out to say the dressing room is now his; she just threw Raft out of it. Dennis sings "Young and Foolish". In the "dramatic" sketch ("Death Across the Lunch Counter," or "Dial 'M' For Mustard") Jack plays Charleston T. Gundlefinger, a diner owner. He's nervous because murderers are on the loose in the area. Three suspicious men come in at closing and two of them (Raft and Day) start to intimidate Jack. They also dance when the jukebox plays "Papa Loves Mambo." Benny shoots Raft, who does a hammy death scene, and Day. The third man isn't a thug; he's the interior decorator Charleston had hired.moreless
