Fibber McGee and Molly – Weather Stripping. 490104. It’s a chilly winter day, but Fibber forgot to order more fuel oil for their furnace. He and Molly are trying to manage to keep as warm as they can, but the front door is letting a draft in through the leaky weather strip.
Mayor Latrivia stops in for a visit, and is confused by Fibber’s proposed plan to fix the weather stripping. The think the mayor plays violin, after a remark made at an earlier time by Doc Gamble. Latrivia tells about a recent dating exploit, and about a gambling problem down at city hall. Billy Mills plays, Hasta La Vista.
Fibber has the front door off, and Molly checks on his progress. The Old Timer pops in to comment on the breeze blowing through, and his exploits in Alaska with a dog sled team. After Harlow arrives with the good word on the sponsor, Doc Gamble visits.
Fibber and Doc trade insults, and Fibber implies that Doc may be having a fling with his secretary. The Kingsmen sing, Saskatchewan.
Just how much shaving down the door will Fibber need to do to get a good, fresh surface for the weather strip? Before he gets any further, , Mr Wimple arrives with a little help to rehang the door, and of course a few wisecracks about his wife, Sweetie Face. Imagine Fibber’s surprise when the door is hung, and he finds how big his gap in the door has grown.
Good thing Molly has a way to get warm, thanks to her confidence in Fibber’s handiman abilities.
