It’s that time for the Academy Awards, and Jack talks to Don about the celebrities at the event that he was the MC. Mary shares a poem about television, and Jack’s shows on it. Dennis tells about some car troubles, then in honor of St Patrick’s Day, he sings, Donagal.
As Dennis tells what kinds of movies his mom likes, Phil enters. Will Don have a solution to the missing quartet that Jack fired? First, Rochester phones in a problem he’s having at home in the kitchen.
Andy Russell, Dick Haimes, and Bing Crosby all appear to round out a quartet to sing with Dennis Day. They harmonize, and take turns soloing to sing the sponsor’s message. Will the quartet meet Jack’s expectations? I feel a ‘Wait a minute’ moment coming on.
PS: Phil jokes about the arrival of television, and his desire to be on it. In reality, he claimed to never wanted to be on TV. He felt his true medium was radio. Elliot Lewis makes an appearance, but not as Frankie Remley. He’s a rep from the Academy Awards. At one point Bing makes an adlib comment about Dennis Day picking out the arrangement in a key that’s too high.
