Dennis opens with a song, Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue.
In the Anderson home, Mrs Anderson grows impatient when Dennis is three weeks late on his rent. Dennis is aware of his tardiness, and shares his concern with his girlfriend, Mildred. Will Mr Anderson have any good advice for Dennis?
Dennis lays it on thick when he has to confront Mrs Anderson face to face, but I don’t think he has endeared himself to her much. To help him earn a few extra buck, Mrs Anderson has pulled some strings to get Dennis a job on the Weaverville police department, all he has to do is pass the physical.
Doctor Frank Nelson gets the pleasures of the exam. The report isn’t looking good, but the decision is up to the hardnosed, Irish police chief. When Dennis puts on the Irish accent, he slips into his new job.
Dennis sings, Someone to Love.
After his first day on the job, Frank Nelson is now the lieutenant who chews Dennis out. It seems that among other things, Dennis has dropped the ball on his quota of issuing tickets. When Dennis makes his benefactory who got him the policeman job mad, he comes up with a plan to make it right. A fake robbery is staged, but you just can’t mess with the law, and it backfires on both Dennis, and his accomplice, Mr Anderson.
Dennis sings, Some Enchanted Evening.
