Only JB’s scene has been viewed, and further identification of this episode is not yet possible.

LINES

(Mayor asks what a cough button is) "Well, in case you have to cough, or something happens in the office you don’t want the audience to hear, you just push this button. It cuts you off the air and plays music as long as you hold it down."

(What’s it play?) "’Moon River’, by Andy Williams." (And he loves it.)
