Episode Summary

Rochester Sleeps Through Jack's Show
Rochester sits down to watch Jack's show, but falls asleep. Jack expects Rochester, his toughest critic, to give him an honest evaluation of the program, but Rochester gives him nothing but evasive answers. Discovering that he slept through the show, an angry Jack sends him to his room without supper. Reconsidering, Benny goes to apologize and finds Rochester packing his clothes, not knowing that he's simply getting ready for a camping trip. Horrified that Rochester is leaving him, Jack offers him more days off--even Labor Day--and makes him a steak dinner. Rochester milks the situation for all it's worth.
Mary Livingstone and Rob Crosby sing "How About You."moreless
