Ed speaks of the profession held by his ancestors (plumbing), and mentioning how his father's once working as a theatre usher led to his current career, before introducing Donald O'Connor, who performs a rendition of "My Mom"
Next, Jayne introduces a segment with then-child actor Ricky Schroeder; the last image shown before the recording cuts out is an all-too-brief image of him as he looked back then.
