Connie Brooks expresses her gratitude for the recently past holiday observed for Washington’s birthday. Mr Boynton seeks her out with what seems a romantic, personal intent. Connie’s heart is all aflutter when Boynton tries to ask her about… certain things. The intense moment is broken by an interuption from Mr Conklin. Then by Walter to ask about the basketball game later.
Though Connie tries to restore the mood, it’s now time for Stretch to interupt. He is having girl troubles, and is afraid it will affect his game. Boynton leaves so Connie can give him some advice on both his girl, and English trouble. Stretch has a crush on Harriot, and plays his best when she is watching the game. As dense as Stretch may be, he can at least see the romantic tension between Miss Brooks and Mr Boynton, even if the bashful biologist has his blinders on.
With a solution in hand, and after the team leaves for their road trip, Connie relaxes at home with Mrs Davis. Imagine Miss Brooks surprise when Stretch shows up on her doorstep. The lovesick basketball star shares some family secrets about his name. She has another solution for him, then returns to talking with Mrs Davis about family matters. Will Connie ever get her bath?
Walter pops in and Connie tries to delicatley dodge the source of Stretch’s problem. Interuptions are the name of the game when Boynton pops in, then Stretch claims that he just can’t play without Harriot. Harriot agrees to go, and shows some of her flighty nature.
Mr Conklin wants a chaperone for his daughter, but with Miss Brooks alone with Boynton, he decides that he needs to go to be her chaperone . All goes well after that, sort of. There’s a final scene where Connie and Conklin share in a slow burning moment.
