Goofs

At the railroad station, many extras appear over and over. Slo-mo viewing reveals that the woman wearing the wide-brim, back hat with a white flower appears 23 times, and the two women with straight, shoulder-length, black hair and wearing white hats appear a combined total of 31 times. There are three takes in which all three woman appear (when Jack says "What some guys won't do for ten-thousand dollars" and "That's our train," and when he's carrying the turkey). See more »

Trying Times Trying To Get Out Of Town

Jack is going by train to New York for some "sponsor" business. The first half of this episode stays right in the Benny home as Jack trades one-liners with Rochester, the plumber (Mel Blanc), has two unique calls from a fat lady who has the wrong number and thinks she is calling her boyfriend to come over and elope with her. Don Wilson also is there, as he's traveling with Benny, but he's a straight man for Jack, not someone who provides comedy.

Finally, they get to the station where there are some other quick gags with the p.a. announcer, the eloper, Rochester, the ticket master and just every other regular who showed most weeks on the Benny show. The entire half-hour is comprised of many small skits.

Overall, this was okay but nothing special. Jack finished the show on a sour note: playing his violin!
