After Jack's monologue rehearsal (lots of jokes about Fred Allen), Rochester rides out on Benny's hot dog cart and sells sandwiches to the crew. He serenades them with "Side by Side" so he can collect a cover charge. Jack is in the lobby of his sponsor's office to renew his contract option. Meanwhile inside Mr. Lewis' office, Fred Allen is trying to convince him to put Jack "out to pasture" and and hire him for the show. Allen hides in a closet as Jack enters. When Mr. Lewis says he wants a few days to think it over, Jack smells a louse. Leaving, Benny opens the wrong door, finds Allen and hits the roof. After the pair have reconciled, Eddie Cantor pops out of another closet and pitches Mr. Lewis on making him the star of the show.
The show concludes with Cantor, Allen, and Jack on stage in front of the curtain trading jabs.moreless
