Fibber McGee and Molly – Bowling Night. 481116 Fibber’s usual bowling night has been moved to tonight, and he gets ready to head out. Wallace Wimple phones to bow out of the bowling match. Who will Fibber get to take his place for the important bowling tournament?
Doc Gamble visits, bu ends up having his bowling skills criticized. Billy Mills plays, Buttons and Bows. Though Molly keeps dropping hints that she would go, Fibber keeps phoning around for a substitute. As Molly leaves the room, Teeny visits. Ever notice how she always appears when Molly is out of the room?
Teeny talks to him about what she might get for Christmas, and jumps to some conclusions, but her dad won’t be able to help out with the bowling. Harlow Wilcox, always handy to turn any phrase or topic into a commercial, seems to have trouble bringing it up today.
Fibber brags about beating the batter in the Bakersfield Bakery, until he’s saved by the bell, and the Old Timer. The Old Timer has to turn down Fibber on the bowling date. After trying all day, Molly sends him on his way with assurance that she’ll find somebody for him. Of cource, she means her.
The Kingsmen sing, Bella marie. At the bowling alley, Fibber, Harlow, and Mayor Latrivia wait for the mystery bowler, as Fibber gives the Mayor a hard time about figures of speech. The Mayor manages to keep from falling into Fibbers word plays. The guys are less than comfortable when they find that Molly is their fourth man. At least until she starts bowling strikes.
