Storyline

Hawaiians are thrilled to sing Aloha to stingy Jack Benny, who gets only 1 lei, while a fellow passenger is covered with them. The romantic atmosphere of the Pacific cruise back to L.A. overwhelms Jack, who envisions a zoftig blonde passenger as Jayne Mansfield. Jayne breathes "You're Just Too Marvelous," to love-struck Jack. Written by David Stevens

Trivia

The script was recycled from season four. In season four, Jack dreams of Marilyn Monroe, and the man with all the leis covering his face turned out to be Mr. Kitzel. In this version, Jack dreams of Jayne Mansfield and the man with all the leis turned out to be Dennis Day. See more »

Quotes

Jayne Mansfield: I just can't control myself. When I'm near you, I'm crazy about you.
Jack Benny: Well, I'm - I'm crazy about you, too, Jayne, but it's so ridiculous. I mean, look at the difference in our ages.
Jayne Mansfield: There's not that much difference, Jack. I'm twenty-six, and you're thirty-nine.
Jack Benny: I know, but I was thinking. Twenty-five years from now, when you'll be fifty-one, and I'll be thirty-nine.

A Break for Jack?
11 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is good ol' Jack taking a little vacation, to Hawaii. Sadly missing is Mary, as she was from most of the episodes at this point (the story is she developed stage fright). Off he goes for a relaxing boat journey, and expects to take full advantage of sun and maybe even a little romance--Jayne Mansfield conveniently appearing, at least in his dream! But, unfortunately, the voluptuous Jayne turns in to a fat girl. Another fat joke? Yes, in one of the typical vaudeville conventions Jack grew up with, fat was funny back then. Poor Don Wilson took the brunt of the jokes for many years, and there was a Blue Fairy fat woman--not too pleasant these days, but probably in forty or fifty years the comedy of today will seem dumb and tasteless. (Not too hard to believe, is it?) The world keeps turning.
