Determined to ask for her hand in mariage,Mel goes to talk to Mr Colby. Colby is in high spirits, and imperfvious to Mel’s friendly insults. He is to be featured in a trade magazine for supermarket businesses. Can Zookie help Betty and Mel get together? He checks out some books from the library on psychology.

Hartley Benson pops in to brag on his exploits with the ladies, and in sports. The Mighty Potentate of the Zebra lodge enters to complain about his wife. He remembers a moment when they first met, and her decline in her figure. Gad! What’s this week’s temptation to bump of his wife?
