Many distinguished persons have been invited to Mr Scot’s lawn party. He and his wife go over the guest list. Mr Scot, Gale Gordon, explains to his wife why he dislikes Phil and Frankie so much. In the Harris home, Phil and Alice get ready for the shindig, and they pack up the extra chairs that Mr Scot needs. The girls ask whether they can go as well, but they have to settle for staying home.
Willie and Frankie enter and anticipate going to the party. Alice offers a diplomatic solution that just might work, if we were talking about sane, rational adults. Phil sings, Row Row Row.
The big moment arrives and the chairs are delivered to Mr Scot. He is gracious to Alice, tollerant towards Phil, but when he tries to tactfully ignore Remley, the tempers begin to rise. Frankie is clueless that anybody wouldn’t want him around, and Scot is pushed to the edge of his patience as Phil and Frankie clown around. Might things come to blows?
Being in a helpful mood, Phil and Frankie need to move some cars around so they can drop off their chairs. Based on the title of the show, can you guess what happens? Is there any hope of covering up their blunder?
Phil and Frankie make a plan to pull the car out of the pool. At the same time, Alice stalls the Scot’s and keeps them from seeing the mess. All that Phil needs is a volunteer to attach the tow rope to the car. It’s his lucky day when Julius arrives and gets roped into the job.
The accidents just won’t stop. It’s Frankie’s bright idea to use Mr Scot’s other car for the towing job, and the axle gets pulled off. With all the fun with cars and pools, it’s only a matter of time before Mr Scot finds out what happened, and he chases Phil and Remley down the street.
