Don rolls the clock back to the day before where Rochester gets the day started. He gets the chilly house warmed up and breakfast started. The milkman stops in, not for a sale, but to make a purchase from Jack’s cow.
Rochester takes breakfast to Jack in bed. Jack enjoys his breakfast with his pet zebra, then the doorbell rings. Professor Leblanc asks Jack for a personal favor and reference, he asks for Jack not to tell anybody that he is Jack’s violin teacher. With nothing else to do, Jack decides to practice his violin, but Rochester let’s him know his violin is broken. Darn.
Don and the Sportsmen are at the door, and they’re in a hurry. Don has to go to his doctor. The Sportsmen sing, The Man Who Made it Rain. With sponsor adjusted lyrics, of course. Jack lets Don know that he and Dennis are to go on a picnic with a couple girls, but Dennis is sick. Just then Bob Hope shows up at the door. Bob has some business deals to arrange, and wants a few quarts of that yummie zebra milk.
Jack talks to Bob about being mentioned in Bob’s recent book, and about the success of their careers. Will Jack get to substitute for Bing Crosby in Bob’s next Road movie? Jack twists Bob’s arm to go in Dennis place on his double date. The date is with the telephone operators. The two gals compare notes on the difference between kissing Jack and Bob.
Mable and Gertrude are introduced to Bob, and the date begins. Bob is a little less than enthusiastic at the women, but the teasing, and comments as they have fun on the shore of the pond include fun with frogs, playing in the water, drowning, starting a fire, and even some network rivalry. The fun in the sun is soon over, as the show comes to an end, and time is up.
