Rush tries to tall Sade about the exploits of his hero, 3rd Lt Stanley, and reads reading from his book. Such descriptive displays of emotion on the part of the damsel in distress. Instead, Sade is rescued by Rush talking about his friends, and their activities. Vic arrives to ask about phone messages, and Sade wonders what’s bothering him. He’s all flustered about a big move to Peoria. The kitchenware plant is packing up and moving all its operations there. Vic is so nervous that he can’t find the words to tell Sade all about the move. A chain of characters passing by the water cooler provided the pieces for Vic to put together to figure it all out. Rush tries to second guess the clues, but Sade isn’t so sure Vic is right. Uncle Fletcher enters as the phone rings. Can Vic keep the secret, or will it get blabbed all around town?
Fletcher and Rush are alone while Fletcher rattles off lists of people he knows. Rush seems less than enthused, and Sade manages to change the topic back to moving to Peoria. What do Rush and Fletcher think about the topic? Rush tries to correct Fletcher’s mistaken geography. Vic is so thrilled about the move, he’s ready to go right now. Can Sade settle him down? Is there any grounds to the rumor mill at the office? The telephone’s ringing, and the jumpy nerves of Vic are contrasted by the apathy of Fletcher. Harry visits, and Vic again resolves to try to keep the secret about the big move. Vic has gone so far as to have bought tickets to Peoria already, and Harry has delivered them.
Sade has had enough and won’t rest until she gets to the bottom of the mystery. Mr Colorston from the office comes by to see what had Vic worked up, and make sure there’s no family problems. Sade figures its time to call Mr Rubish himself to get the facts straight. Is the plant really going to move? The rumor is true, but Sade learns that there’s nothing to worry about. At least not for 30 years.
Note: Lot’s of running gags, like Vic jumping to conclusions, and his outlandish over reacting. In shorter episodes though, Sade has played detective and arrived to the truth in much more efficient ways. Still a pretty good show of that classic ridiculous behavior, and Fletcher doesn’t hog it by reciting too many lists of his crazy acquaintences.
