Jack goes to a nightclub. The Sportsmen Quartet sing 'When my sugar walks down the street.' The next act is a hypnotist; the hypnotist makes a pretty girl from the audience think a middle-aged man from the audience is Tony Curtis, then makes the man think he is Fred Astaire; Jack scoffs, so the hypnotist suggests that when he leaves the stage he will think he is Diamond Jim Brady, 'the world's greatest spendthrift.' When Jack comes back angry about the results, the hypnotist makes him think he is Bob Hope
