Last week Gracie’s mom came to visit, and she’s still here. Gracie tries to stand up for him, but mom doesn’t let George get a word in edgewise. His jokes don’t impress mom, maybe his singing will.
For relief, George visits Joe Bagley. Bill and Gracie make a plan to have George look like a real handyman. Meanwhile George and Joe talk and come up with their own plan. There plans are similar. Gracie’s involves having George prove that he’s a good handyman so mom will go home. Joe’s plan is to wreck the plumbing and electric so mom will go home due to the inconvenience. Mom is leaning toward Gracie’s plan. What’s George to do?
Seeing that he needs to repair his mess, George gets busy, and tries his best, but things are all crossed up. A friend agrees to help George, but Gracie wants to keep mom out of the basement to preserve the illusion of George the handyman. With the job done, unknown to George, more of his friends arrive to help. Too bad they put George back on square one with his mom.
