Don and Jack discuss the lack of warm clothes that Jack brought with him to New York. The jokes turn toward Fred Allen, before Mary enters and talks about Jacks clothes, and going out to the shows in New York. She also reads a letter from her mom to tell about some family illnesses, and quirky family habits. Phil sings, Pocketful of Dreams.
Phil and Mary give Jack a hard time about grooming habits, saving money, and Don squeezes in a commercial. Rochester phones in for a conflict over some of Jack’s clothes. Phil and the band play some travelling music, and we meet up with Jack and Mary doing some Christmas shopping.
Jack battles wits with unruly salespeople, and floorwalkers as he tries to shop for the items on his list.
