As Fibber continues to debate over how he should serve, Doc Gamble visits. Fibber and molly ask him about his dating relationship with FiFi Tremaine. Might there be weddingbells for him soon? Radio reports bring crazy announcements, even Harlowe Wilcox on every channel doing the sponsor commercial. With a $10K reward, Fibber is mobilized into action.

Fibber wants to be prepared, and goes over his list of armament before reluctantly leaving Molly alone. Or at least he would if Mayor Latrivia hadn’t popped in.
