Fibber admonishes Molly about her ability to handle her daily chors, and brags how he can juggle several things at once. All it takes is to schedule things for maximum efficiency. Ole the Janitor drops in to return Fibbers bowling ball, and tell about how his wife won a flower arranging contest. Also about a high school track meet.
Molly thinks Fibber’s schedule is a big fairy tale. Their argument is interupted by Doc Gamble to take the insults down a new path. Doc scoffs at Fibber trying to tell Molly what to do. Fibber gets confused over medical terms as doc and Molly try to correct him. The three manage to get their lines mixed up.
After Doc leaves, Fibber returns to his schedule then Billy Mills plays, I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair.
Fibber shows off his tight work schedule as he washes the dishes, breaking them as he goes. The soda jerk from Kraemers drugstore makes a delivery so Fibber can use a cigarette lighter as a more efficient means to light up his cigars. Milton also shares a story of his own in his adventures at the store. Fibbers alarm clock goes off, and it’s time to advance to his next project, despite having a sink full of dishes left.
What is the next job? It’s time to wax the kitchen floor. A big hint for Harlow to make his appearance and plug the sponsor’s product. Fibber plows right through his schedule, and explains his improvements to the house cleaning tools, namely the vacuum.
Mayor Latrivia visits to get an earful about the efficient McGee. The mayor tells how he already has begun his own efficiency project at City Hall. Naturally, a figure of speech that is used gets the McGee’s confused. When Fibber and Molly come back with their own interpretation of the Strange Bedfellows in question, it pushes the Mayor into hypertensive mode.
The Kingsmen sing, I Want to Marry Mary.
Fibber wraps up the vacuuming, and he proudly reports he’s right on schedule. He fills Molly in on his successes and setbacks. Wallace Wimple drops in and has a tale to tell about his wife Sweety Face, and how she has him handle house work. Wimple also tells about his birdwatching. He even reads a birdwatching poem titled, Ode to Doctor Gamble. A cute poem about storks, and babies.
As Fibber announces that the morning chores are done, Molly stops him from attacking the afternoon chores. It’s evening, and time for supper, and the food is getting cold.
