Episode Summary

EDIT
Rochester Sleeps Through Jack's Show
AIRED:
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

      • Jack: (reading telegram) Dear Mr. Benny, we want to thank you very much for sending us your orchestra. We're holding them over two more weeks. The Happy Valley Sanitarium. (to himself) Gee. Two more weeks. I'll hardly recognize the boys. Every time they dry 'em out, they come back two inches shorter.

      • Jack: Rochester, if you must sleep during a television show, why does it have to be mine? Why don't you sleep when, when Bob Hope is on?
        Rochester: I tried that, but the laughs kept waking me up.
        Jack: Oh, the laughs kept waking you up. But during my program--
        Rochester: Slept like a baby.
