Lum tries to talk Mousey into naming the apartment building after himselfinstead of the name originally picked. Since Mousey thought up the plan, and it’s just like a mother to him, he insists on naming the apartment building after himself. Will the soft spoken man hold his ground and be firm with Lum?
Mousey tries to show how firm he can be, but after a phonecall from his overbearing wife, Gussey, he ends up being henpecked instead, Mousey also reveals that his mother is a lady black smith back in Iowa. She’s just like a father to him.
The guys go over how the floor plan of the apartments ought to be layed out. Ideas include a store on every floor, including a black smith shop provided by Mousey’s mom. With all the conveniences, nobody will have a need to ever leave their home. Imagine that. Abner even suggests a movie theater, but the discussion gets Mousey’s dander up and he phones to give Gussie an earful. Will he actually do it?
