In Jack’s house, he and Rochester put together a photo scrapbook. They’re out of glue, and have no flour to make home made paste. Jack sets out for Ronald Colemans to borrow some.
After a minor adventure that takes place on the way over, with flour securely in hand, Jack comments about Ronald’s laundry, then Marry drives up. Mary and Jack joke about her sister Babe.
Back home, Dennis drops in for a visit. After some clowning around, Dennis sings, Clancey Lowers the Boom. Phil drops in to give his vocabulary a work out. He and Dennis talk about their contracts for their other radio shows.
Rochester reports more kitchen shortages, and is sent to borrow more from you know who. Cut to the home of Ronald Coleman where he talks with his wife about Manchester… er… Rochester, and Jack’s habit of borrowing things. Bonita proposes a scary thought. What if Ronald Coleman had been born as Jack Benny, and Jack had been born as Ronald?
After a nasty bump on the head, and while taking a nap, Ronald has a dream. Let the role reversal begin.
Ronald does a good job of playing Jack as he talks with Rochester, Dennis, Mary, and Don. Cheap jokes,aging jokes, and other typical Jack Benny jokes. He has Jack pegged pretty well. Ron, as Jack, delivers a dramatic, Shakespearean commercial. Impressive.
Now it’s time to take a peek at Jack being Ron. Jack definitely gets out the insults about himself, although he hams it up with the accent, and even falls for another rendition of the bear joke that has been a running gag for weeks now, as delivered by Bonita. When Ron wakes up, he is determined to move away to keep Jack out of his head. Especially after that love scene where Jack, as Ronald, gets to kiss Bonita.
