Last week Jack had a cold, but has come from a week in Palm Springs to get well. Jokes abound about Jacks health, and plans to play the Bee, and the latest round of Fred Allen’s jokes about him. Mary, Kenny and Phil all pitch in with some teasing about Jack’s violin playing. Phil Harris plays, Swing High Swing Low.
Jack steps behind closed doors to take a phone call from Phil’s fake sister, Lucy Belle, while Don delivers a punny commercial. Mary and the cast eavesdrop on the mushy love words, and tease Jack about it. Andy Devine pops in with hopes of doing another Buck Benny installment. Instead, the cast swap jokes at Fred Allen’s expense. The jokes about being anemic strike a little close to home for Jack’s liking. Kenny sings, Good Night My Love.
Kenny’s giggly girlfriend, Lena, annoys everyone as Phil’s ficticious mom and sister arrive. Mary reads a telegram from Fred Allen, and Phil Harris plays, Slumming on Park Avenue.
Planning to play the Bee, Jack recieves more telegrams from around the world. The band tunes up, consessions are sold in the audience. Then it happens. Jack’s violin comes up missing.
Note: Mary makes a joke about the band mooning Jack. Who says old time radio can’t be a little racy at times?
