  • Quotes

    • Jack: I'm going to be in New York in two weeks to do my last show from there and my guest is going to be Jackie Gleason. You see, I was on his show once and we have a sort of reciprocal agreement, you see, where I go on Jackie Gleason's show for nothing. I don't get paid. And then Gleason comes on my show for nothing. Reciprocal meaning Gleason is just as cheap as I am.

    • (Jack's buying a train ticket from ticket clerk Frank Nelson)
      Frank Nelson: All right, would you like the $60 ticket or the $140 ticket?
      Jack: What's the difference?
      Frank Nelson: With the $140 ticket, you ride inside.
