Don Wilson takes us to Jack’s house, where Rochester gets a breakfast ready for his boss. Phil Harris drops in and when the radio is tuned in, Frank Nelson, Mel Blanc, and Bea Benaderet lend their voice tallents to the show. Not satisfied with the programming, Phil spins the dial for a crazy mash up of Frank’s soothing commercial, Mel’s wild one, and a sweet tune from Bea Benederet.
Larry Stevens sings a tune. Don Wilson pops in, but Rochester has important word. In a recent episode a sculptor promised to make Jack’s likeness, and Rochester gives some disturbing news about the progress.
Phil plays a few bars of some transitioning music, It Had to be You. As Jack takes a stroll, he meets a reporter who wants to know how Jack met Mary. Get ready for a flashback sequence to 1932, and Jack strolling on an autumn day, humming and commenting on popular people and events of the day. The scene shifts to Mary talking to Mabel about Jack’s goofy old fashioned clothes. Jack lays on the pick up lines, but the sassy Mary dishes it right back.
PS: Though the scene of Jack meeting Mary may be made up, it does have a few grains of truth. They did meet where Mary worked at the May Company, but the conversation today is designed for maximum comedy impact, and not necessarily what happened. And the meeting took place a few years earlier than the 1932 date mentioned.
