Don flashes back to last year on Jack’s birthday where the Beaver club is planning a birthday party. The Beavers talk about Jacks accomplishments as a highly rated football player, and violinist.
Elsewhere, Mary has her maid Pauline help her get ready to go out. The two gals talk about their dream men, and they make plans to surprise Jack with a party.
The scene cuts to Charlie Bagby the piano player, who is playing pool with Mel. The guys talk about Jacks birthday, and how old he is. The age 62 is hinted at, but Jack isn’t quite that old this year. The scene moves to the house of Dennis Day, where he talks to his mom about the advice Jack gave him on girls. Mom, Verna Felton, tells Dennis some advice of her own on the topic. Dennis breaks out into song, If I Ever Needed You.
Once again, the scene changes. Now it’s off to Don’s house as he talks to his wife about Jack’s birthday, and party plans for Jack.
After the blatant sponsor plug, we find Jack at home. He pouts as he thinks nobody has remembered his birthday. Polly and Rochester try to cheer him up, as they pretend to not know what the important day is. Mary phones, after all the cast had made their own plans for a surprise party, she is bringing it all together so they can surprise Jack at his house.
Meanwhile, Jack strolls the town, and pops into a theater to catch his old film, the Horn Blows at Midnight. The cast is now left at home alone, but where is Jack? At home, the gang seems to have gone, but a singing telegram from Jack’s sister waits for him. With the help of the Sportsmen, the birthday greeting gets out of hand.
Though he missed all the fun, Jack eventually gets home and learns of the party that the gang threw for him, is he touched or what?
