After his recent woman troubles with the widow, the heartbroken Lum swears off women. Abner tries to cheer up Lum by telling the benefits of having a good woman to come home to. His phone call from Lizabeth doesn’t do much for his argument though.
Now Abner shares a little about what it’s like when he’s on the bad side of Lizabeth at home. Squire Skimp enters to add his part to the topic. All the marriage talk still has Lum convinced to keep clear of women. Then Cedric enters to tell about the pretty gal in town, and Lum seems to have an immediate cure for his slump.
