The ongoing story of two married people who live together, and like it.
As George is deeply involved in a mystery novel, Liz tries to get his attention. After some tricky behavior, she quizzes him on trivia questions. How well will Liz do when George asks her a few questions? When they both fail the quiz, Liz wants to buy a book to improve their minds.
From the book, Liz learns the basics to make a general good impression. She gets her big chance to show off when George phones home to let her know that a business client is coming for dinner. She learns new vocabulary words, she is prepared to be a good listener, and has read up on a topic that she can become an expert on. In this case, beekeeping.
Frank Nelson is the client who is looking forward to a simple evening where no brain challenging convversation will intrude. It looks like he picked the wrong night to quit having intellectual conversation. Liz nails the vocabulary display, she even stands on her topic of beekeeping, I think she could do a little more of that listening thing, but where would the comedy come from if she did?
When Liz does listen, and lays on the act at being a “Yes man,” Frank nelson gets the stimulation, and inspiration he wants. George is jealous when Liz gets asked to speak at Frank’s meeting.
Liz is to speak on jet aviation, to which she is prepared by wearing a new dress. The keynote speaker couldn’t make it, and a replacement speaker takes over, which changes the entire topic at hand. Can Liz switch gears from aviation to Alaska gracefully? Will bees, and the Wright Brothers make unplanned appearances? Will George forgive her? Lets just say that Liz isn’t the kind that he would kick out of bed for eating crackers in it.
