Episode Summary

EDIT
You Bet Your Life
AIRED:
Jack is dressed as Little Boy Blue to attend Darryl Zanuck's costume party, to which he wasn't invited. When he reads that Groucho Marx is giving away $3000 on You Bet Your Life, he forgets the party and sets his sites on winning the jackpot. Disguised in a wavy wig and mustache, Jack appears on Groucho's show claiming to be musician Ronald (and sometimes Rodney) Forsythe. In an effort to say the "secret word" (something found in the home) Jack ignores Groucho's questions to name everything he can think of in his house. Thanks to a smart partner, Benny and his teammate are only one question away the jackpot. The question, however, makes "Ronald" squirm: Just how old is that lying bum Jack Benny?moreless
