Every man tries out a new fashion every once in a while. Fibber has a new fad. He has taken to smoking a pipe. Molly isn’t exactly impressed, but is tollerant as Fibberr tells about the details of his new habit.
Fibber is excited to be switching from smelly old cigars, to a pipe, he says as he puffs away trying to keep it lit. Ole the janitor visits. He tells how his job keeps him jumping, but complains about all the deductions from his paycheck. As Ole tells about his daughter, and her progress at school, McGee goes through more matches than tobacco. And so early in the show. Maybe Fibber should just burn matches instead of smoke.
Mayor Latrivia visits to comment on pipe smoking. He gives the latest on his gal, FeeFee Tremaine, and his rivalry for her hand with Doc Gamble. As Fibber finally works up a good cloud of smoke, Billy Mills plays, Orchids for My Lady.
Fibbers pipe is out, and he’s running out of matches. The soda jerk from Kraemers drugstore, Milt, comes over to talk about his own experience with a smoking habit. Harlow comes in to join the teasing over the new habit, and deliver the commercial. Harlow does offer some advice when he tells Fibber to switch tobacco if he wants to keep his pipe lit. Doc Gamble enters to give his thoughts on the perils of pipe smokeing. Why did Fibber ever want to try pipe smoking anyway? The insults are interupted by a phone call for Doc, as he deals with a patient who is worried about wrinkles.
The Kingsmen sing, Stub Your Toe on the Moon. With his pipe still out, Fibber is determined to get it going when Wallace Wimple visits. Wimple tells his own story about his old pipe smoking habit, and how he came to put it aside. Even about his experiment with rolling his own cigarettes. By now Fibber leaves the room to work on his pipe, and Molly complains to Wallace about the new habit. Fibber claims to have finally solved the problem of keeping his pipe lit, and he brags about it as he lights up a cigar.
