In Jack’s home in Beverly Hills Rochester comments on Jack’s preparations he takes to get ready for his performances in television. Such exotic behavior. He’s joined by Polly before the doorbell rings. The mailman delivers Jacks’s collection of magazines. Rochester goes to waken the sleeping Jack. Among the mail is a letter from Professor LeBlanc about Jack’s upcoming violin lesson, as well as a couple other business letters.
A flyer from a car lot gives the Idea to Jack about getting a trade in for his beloved Maxwell. Mary comes in and gets a bit of misinformation about what Jack was really doing with his ironing board, and his exotic home entertainment.
Phil phones in to invite Jack for a round of golf. Jokes creep in about Jack’s proposed car shopping, which surprises Phil and makes him think he has called the wrong phone number. Phil surprises Jack with word that Remley is drinking milk for a change.
Don and the Sportsmen have entered, and have a special arrangement so Jack can help with his violin. It’s a Mendelson Swing song.
With Mary and Rochester, Jack heads to the car lot as he talks about the kind of car he hopes to get. The Maxwell has some car trouble, and a couple of Jack’s fans spot him, and talk about him behind his back.
With the car able to continue, Jack reads off the crazy names of some of the car dealers. Jack decides to visit Plain Bill, and is shown all the new features that are being installed on the new cars, gadgets with long and techie sounding names. So long that Mary has trouble repeating it. Mary wants to get a convertible, but Jack balks at the price. What kind of trade in can Jack get for his trusty Maxwell? The soft spoken, mellow, Plain Bill has a sudden emotional reaction upon seeing the Maxwell, but will a test ride in the Maxwell change his mind?
Jack is offended at the extreme low trade in value, but the salesman is adamant. Rochester suggests that if Jack won’t go for a trade in, maybe he can get that high tech gadget that Mary had trouble saying earlier?
