Episode Summary

EDIT
Violin Competition With Gisele MacKenzie
AIRED:
Jack explains that TV shows need exciting openings; that's why this one began with a guest getting his head chopped off. Gisele MacKenzie chats with Jack and sings a song. Benny's attempt to tell a joke is interrupted by an audience member (Mel Blanc) upset about Jack's smog jokes; the complainer proceeds to choke and cough from the L.A. air. Don and Harlow perform a weird song and dance about Siam. For the finale, Jack invites the band members (and their parole officer) on stage to back him and Gisele on their duet, "Sweet Georgia Brown." Jack's attempt at a solo on "Tea For Two" causes Blanc to return, confiscate the violin, and lead the band offstage.moreless
