In Jack’s home, Don visits Rochester and we learn about Jack taking Mary out to the movies. They have jjust seen It’s a Wonderful Life, but Jack finds it hard to believe that an angel could make it so a person was never born. What would life be like for the cast if Jack were never born?
At home, Jack finds a stranger in his house. It’s Victor Moore, the angel from the film Jack just went to see. The angel is on a mission and Jack learns that he has no butler, but that’s only the beginning.
He learns that Mary still works for the May Company, Dennis Day works for Fred Allen, and a voice impersonater standing in for Fred is pleased to meet Jack because there has never been a feud between them. Don and the Sportsmen run a tobacco plantation. (Hey, they had to work in the sponsor in here somewhere). Phil Harris still works in his nightclub. Isn’t there anybody who can help Jack prove that he was really born?
In the end, Jack gets his life back, and for better or worse, the cast are restored to their place in life with him.
Benny. 1937. Jack complains about Fred Allen and defends his violin playing.
