Episode Summary

EDIT
Message and Date With Gertrude
AIRED:
After a show, Jack awaits a relaxing massage, but masseuse Frank Nelson gives him nothing but aggravation. Jack throws him out after discovering he's being rubbed down with chicken fat from a butcher shop. Jack takes his date Gertrude to a dumpy French restaurant that's crowded with sewer workers from Paris. The Sportsmen Quartet perform a number as the restaurant's entertainment. Jack and Gertrude are seated at a tiny table where they're accosted by a pair of violent Apache dancers. Benny literally get pulled into their act by the female who tosses him across the room. The owner, Michel, crams another guest at their table; the Frenchman tells Jack he smells like chicken fat.moreless
