Lucille Ball reveals the "true" story behind Paul Revere's famous ride.
9 Oct. 1964Andy Williams Show
Jack's guest is laid-back singer Andy Williams, which prompts a visit from Jack's Pasadena Fan Club President (Madge Blake, Aunt Harriett on "Batman"), who can't believe Really Old Blue Eyes would book another blue-eyed guest. Jack lectures Andy to work harder to promote his career, so Andy changes from a sweater to a tux to join Jack at a premiere - which turns out to be a meat market opening. When a customer (Lee Meriwether, Catwoman in the Batman (1966) movie) gushes over Andy's crooning, he's too embarrassed to admit who he is.

23 Oct. 1964Jack Makes a Comedy Record
Jack proposes recording a lucrative comedy album with Bob Hope, upon finding out how worthless his investments are: as chief stockholder of a harpoon company, Jack gets dubbed Schnook of the South. Fretting that he won't be able to counter Hope's hilarious ad libs, Jack orders his writers to give him all the laughs, but Old Ski Nose is too slick to fall for that.

The UXB squad turns out to be the Smothers. Tom can't remember which wire to pull, while Dick uses the opportunity of Jack being immobilized to lock in an appearance on Jack's final program.
