Flashback to Dennis asking Jack for a raise, and the jokes from the previous show are revisited. Dennis lets it out that Fred Allen will be returning to the air next week. Mel Blanc has some fun pretending to be the sound man. The fun moves into the studio as Phil plays, Shoo Shoo Baby.
Jack departs from the issue of the raise, and teases Phil about his band. Mary is still off the show due to laryngitis. Jack phones her, but talks to the new maid, Butterfly McQueen. She puts her uncle Rochester on the phone, who tries to hide the fact that he has been shooting craps with Mary’s doctor.
Rochester passes the word that Jack needs to renew his drivers license. Word of Jacks new car is mentioned. He donated the Maxwell to the war effort the previous year. He is now driving a yellow cab, which he is known to pick up the occasional fare, and pick up a few bucks on the side.
Dennis sings, I’ll Be Home for Christmas. Rochester and Jack arrive at the drivers license office. Forms need to be filled out, eye charts read, and driving tests to be done. Fred Allens’s voice tallent, John Brown and Minirva Pious help out in the Drivers license office. Even with the commercial. Jack is nervous as Frank Nelson administers the driving part of the test.
After the jokes about driving, near misses, and some that aren’t so near, i think the nervousness might have transfered over to the driving instructor.
