Mr Kitzel pops in with greetings for the New Year, and gratitude over the gift he got from Jack for Christmas. Mary takes the show into flashback mode to set the scene for Bogie and Bacall to make their appearance.

Boone never sounded like that.”
Jack and Lauren read their lines, and all goes well, until the kissing scene. Phil Harris barges in, followed closely by Bogie. Will Jack get through that kissing scene? Bogie has his own agenda for letting Jack go as far as he does with his wife. Will he have any pointers for Jack? Why should Lauren have all the fun? Mary gets in on the recieving end of a kiss from Bogie. What’s Jack so riled up for? What does he want? A kiss from Bogie too? Dennis manages to enter and ruin all the fun by scaring Bogie away.
