The upper crust families in town are getting together for a party. Though Mel would like to attend, he’s too big a disgrace for Colby to invite him. Insults fly, as do jokes about underwear. Mr Potchnik visits to learn that mel won’t be at the party, and tells about one of his untallented pupils. Maybe if Mel poses as a music critic, he can join the party, and give Potchnik’s pupil some rave reviews.
As Victor Miller plays, the Sportsmen sing, Come and Get It Day.
As Mel works in the fix it shop, Mr Cushing, the Mighty Potentate of the Zebra lodge, enters to tell about his old bat of a wife. Gad! What temptation will he be faced with to end it with his wife?
The stammering Zookie is at the Colby’s to work as the butler. Working with Potchnik, Mel pretends to be an Italian expert in music. Will he be able to pull the wool over the eyes of banker Grimes, and his operetic wife? Colby may see through Mel’s impersonation, but he still manages to get on the good side of banker Grimes.
