When Fibber’s bowling night is cancelled, Molly tries to help him think of other activities to entertain himself, with. Teeny pops in, and Fibber keeps her busy with a story. Will he get the tale told, or will her interuptions and questions serve only to frustrate Fibber? Billy Mills plays, Serenade to a Wealthy Widow.
As Teeny naps in the guest room, Wallace Wimple visits. What’s the latest news with Sweetie Face, his big ol’ wife? Has he actually had a tender moment with the overbearing woman? Apparently she isn’t such a fan of birds as he is. The light sleeping Teeny wants to know what time it is. Commercial time of course, and Harlowe Wilcox is on hand to do it. Then they team up to get Fibber flustered.
When Fibber tries to talk financial matters to Mayor Latrivia, Molly has to correct Fibbers word comprehension. Will there be a slow burn coming? It won’t be the mayor this time. The Kingsmen sing, Managua Nicaragua
Doc Gamble stops in to get teased by Fibber about films, then a loud noise bursts forth from the guest room. It’s just Teeny listening to a shoot ’em up gangster show. Is it time for her to leave all of a sudden? What about her parents, who were out playing bridge? Should she go home to an empty house?
PS: Have you ever heard the saying, “This is where I came in”, no? Good, you’ll hear it today. Do you know where it came from? In the old days of movies, the featured film and accompanying shorts would be played endlessly through the business day of the movie house. There wasn’t any posted time for when shows started, and people just came and went as they pleased. Most often folks came in during the middle of a movie, and stayed to the end, then waited for it to start over again. Once they watched the parts they missed at the beginning, and got to “where they started,” they would get up and leave.
Though it became a catch phrase to use as an exit excuse, it didn’t necessarily mean the activity had gone full circle.
