As a new year begins, Jack and his cast flashback to their trip to the Rosebowl game. Going against his stingy character, Jack surprises everyone when he springs for the tickets to the game. Before going, Mary jokes about her recent illness, and the doctor that Jack referred her to visit. A joke that runs through the rest of the episode.
With this being the cold and flu season, the Sportsmen are out with illness, but never fear, they are replaced by their wives just for today. As the big date to attend the game goes down, enjoy a glimpse of Jack on a date with Mary, scalpers, and fun with other cast members. There’s even a trip in the Maxwell with Rochester to add a few laughs.
What would a new years show be without a fedw drinking jokes with Phil Harris? Mr Kitzel sells a few hotdogs, before the bigf moment to enter the stadium arrives as the show comes to a final punch line.
