When Vic comes home, Sade is up in arms as she shares the latest scandal. Ruthie Stembottom has left the thimble club after a fight with Mrs Applerot. As important to Sade as the matter is, Vic has pressing things to do with his boss, Mr Rubish.
Vic’s hectic day escalates to a new level when a phone call adds to his distractions and delays. All the while his boss, Mr Rubish waits for him outside.
PS: Here’s an observation from Jimbo Mason:
A very intriguing episode with juicy gossip about Public Enemy #1, Mis’ Appelrot. Ruthie going off on her… but quitting the Thimble Club seems a bit like a MacGuffin, as I totally can’t see that happening. I think it’s writer Paul Rhymer’s way to make the news juicy enough to almost force Sade into making Vic listen to her news. So perhaps in a way, he employed an Alfred Hitchock trick in radio before others later began to do so (this is evident in shows like The Lives of Harry Lime, The Adventures of Superman and others.)
It’s too bad the show is hampered miserably by terrible sound quality.
