George heads to the record company to pitch another song he wrote. Don’t worry, he doesn’t sing. I think it’s just to squeeze in a couple jokes that couldn’t be fit in on the last episode when George did sing. At the Burns home, we get a glimpse of Gracie’s domestic charm. A script is delivered and George is an easy sell, once the theatrical agent learns what button to push. Now it’s up to George to convince Gracie that she’s right for the part. Is she up for playing the part of Dulcie, the ditsy dame?
Since George and Gracie are busy learning their parts, the neighbors talk about the crazy life of George and Gracie as vaudeville actors. Bill Goodwin enters to brag about his skills with the ladies, and of course plug the sponsor. Gracie talks about script changes that she thinks will work, if only George will go for it.
Note: In the show, Gracie is poked fun of concerning her domestic skills. In real life, she is said to be a very good housekeeper, and a charming hostess. There’s also a disagreement on who fell in love first in the famous couple’s love affair. George fell in love right away with Gracie, but she was too star struck by others on the vaudeville circuit. Eventually he won her over, and they became inseparable.
