AIRED:
Rochester is typing up the script for next week's show: Jack Benny's life story. The Sportsmen Quartet sing "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby." Jack begins auditioning actors for the various parts in his saga. He hires a gorgeous young woman to play his first love, and his real first girlfriend to be his mother. He passes on the first young man who's auditioning to play himself as a child, instead casting the pushy little boy who is acting as the kid's agent.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jack: Imagine the studio doing a whole hour television show about the story of my life.
        Rochester: Boss, there's so many celebrities in Hollywood. How come they picked you?
        Jack: I wasn't exactly their first choice, you see, but they found out that mine was the only life they wouldn't have to censor. (after a brief pause) Darnit.

      • Actress: Would it be all right if I sat down?
        Jack: Well, you know that dress better than I do.

      • Jack: (recalling their early radio days) I gave you five dollars a week and your meals. Remember that, Don?
        Don: Yeah. Gosh, I wish I had that deal again!
        Jack: Well, you're not going to get it, brother!

      • (Jack complains about how hard it is to read Rochester's typing)
        Rochester: Well boss, I've been telling you the same thing for two years. Buy a new ribbon.
        Jack: Why should I buy a new ribbon?
        Rochester: Because taking off the old one and dipping it in grape juice is ridiculous.

      • (seeing his first girlfriend from his youth)
        Jack: Oh, Mildred, before you go, do you remember the time I asked your father for your hand?
        Mildred: Yes, I had a dollar in it.
        Jack: Yes, I know.
