Flashback to the day before at rehearsal. Jack is critical of Bob Crosby’s band members. Jack begins to worry when Don points out that his contract hasn’t been renewed yet. Mary’s comments don’t encourage Jack, so he tries to phone Rochester. After the phone connection is tied up with gossip from the operators, talking about Frankie Remley. Dennis arrives with a story about a run in with a traffic cop. He sings, Once I Had a Secret Love.
Dennis reveals a secret medical problem, then Rochester calls back with the report, still no contract in the mail. Jack grows worried, and wants to make a good impression when he phones the sponsor directly. The Sportsmen were going to help, but are late, and their song for the commercial adds to Jacks worries.
Now even more desperate, Jack calls his old sponsers, Jello, General Tire, and Canada Dry. Just when he thinks it can’t get worse, it’s happy ending time.
