Getting ready to travel by train, Jack and Rochester joke around about packing. Jack seems to be plagued by a stalker who is following him from St Joseph. Mary arrives to lend her teasing, and has a letter from her mom. Larry Stevens sings, Goodnight Sweet Dreams.
Phil Harris arrives and Jack teases him about his guitarist, Frank Remley. When Jack gets a bill for their hotel, he goes over the expenses. To get enough ready cash, Jack heads to his vault. Phil plays some travelling music, and it’s off to catch a train.
With the Maxwell previously called into military service in a scrap drive, Jack and Mary drive to the train station in her car. It must be hers since Jack’s replacement wheels is a transformed taxi, ant the jokes about cab fare are absent.
Mel Blanc announces the train departures. Frank Nelson is a traveller who gets Jack confused with someone else, and an information desk clerk.
PS: As Jack switched sponsors from Grape Nuts to Lucky Strike, and in these later war years, he developed recurring gags that would later be famous. The train station scenes date back to the late 1930′s, but would become more polished as years go on. Today’s episode may not be a prime example, but we get a look at some of the evolution of characters.
