Storyline

William Bendix plays the father in a sitcom scene set in three different ways, once without canned laughs, then with, and then played extra violently. "The Allen Report to the Nation" topic is the common cold. As the Question Man, Steve blows a line. Jack Kerouac reads a few lines from his book, "On The Road". Steve and Don do a skit/ad about a man who packs his empty bags in his 1960 Plymouth and never goes anywhere. Written by WesternOne
