Frankie has lost his job, and for the past few weeks has been living with Phil and Alice, driving them nuts. They go to the Rexall office to appeal to Mr Scot. He is willing to reconsider, and give Remley a job, but not on the show.
Frankie gets to work as a dishwasher in the drugstore lunch counter. Alice tries to drop the bomb as tactfully as possible. Phil tries his hand at being delicate, but Frankie balks when he realizes what the job is. Though he tries to play it off that he is over qualified, Remley finally caves in. Alice is so happy she sings, Lucky Me Can’t You See I’m In Love.
Reporting for his first day of work, it becomes plain that Remley’s customer service skills seem to need a little polish. Phil decides to cover for Remley, and ends up being in charge of a little baby girl. To calm the baby down, Phil turns on the charm, and sings, The Jabberwocky Bird.
Frankie returns after making amends for the mess he caused earlier, but he tells Phil that he suspects the baby was abandoned. Where is the mom? The cops have a report out that a baby has been missing in the neighborhood. All Phil has to do is turn the kid over to the cops, right? Will they believe him?
Julius enters the drugstore for a round of wisecracks, implying that Phil is the one with the job as a soda jerk. Can Phil pawn the baby off on Julius? It only works to serve to convince Julius that Phil and Remley are nuts, and wonder where babies really come from. They really aren’t sold in drugstores you know… Rexall buys them from factories. (Go ask your dad, Julius.)
The cops tell Phil that the missing baby has turned up, but now Phil has to find the real mom. The commotion back at the drugstore makes Phil worry, but when a reward is forthcoming, Remley stands up to return the baby. It’s just the thing to impress Mr Scot, but is it enough to get his job back?
