Ralph tells the lodge members he knows Jackie Gleason and can get him for a show at the Raccoon Lodge (of course he doesn't). He comes clean to Norton who helps him come up with a plan to get Gleason to come to the event on the basis that it's a charity, it's not, but they don't plan on letting that get the way. Their plan involves waiting in Gleason's hotel lobby to ask him for help. The scene in lobby revolves around series of exits and entrances by Ralph and Gleason then Ed can Carney and even Joyce Randolf gets involved in playing a different character in that lobby. Gleason and Ralph manage to miss each other in the lobby. On the night of the event Ralph is shaking in his boots because he doesn't know that Alice had managed to get Gleason to show up by make his favorite food and sending it to him with a note asking him to help. Another interesting character swap takes place and everyone is happy at the end Written by

In a scene at the Racoon Lodge, a blackboard indicates that members Hurdle and Poss are delinquent in their dues payments. This is likely a gentle dig at series Producer Jack Hurdle and Assistant Producer Stanley Poss. See more
