Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack's Maxwell Is Stolen
AIRED:
Jack's monologue is interrupted by a phone call from Rochester informing him that his Maxwell has been stolen. Unable to call the Beverly Hills Police to report the crime (their number is unlisted), Jack hurries to the station. Don is left to introduce the Sportsmen. Caught off guard, they dress onstage while singing "Puttin' on My Top Hat" and a Lucky Strike commercial. The Beverly Hills Police station is incredibly ritzy: the receptionist asks Jack if he has an appointment, the "hounds" are French poodles, the dispatchers play pop records on the radio between announcements. When the "DJ" plays a Lawrence Welk tune, bubble machines turn on and everyone ballroom dances. One of the thieves is caught when he returns the car to Jack's house.moreless
