In the house at 79 Wistful Vista, the day on the calendar is marked. It’s a special day that Fibber marked, but now he can’t remember why. He phones Doc Gamble to see if he knows what the day might be. Hey, no Mirt? I guess she must have had the day off.
It’s not an anniversary, maybe it’s Molly’s birthday? but Doc doesn’t know either. Old Timer visits to tell that he is to pose for baby food labels. He tells about a few things he’s done in his lifetime. Old Timer can’t help, but Fibber is sure it’s Molly’s birthday. Billy Mills plays, Here I’ll Stay.
Fibber is on the phone to invite Wallace Wimple to Molly’s birthday surprise party. Doc Gamble stops by in person to swap insults with Fibber. He tells about a crowd of people between his office, and Fibber’s house. They tell stories on Mayor Latrivia, and Molly tells about a date she was on before going out with the jealous Fibber.
Molly checks on what’s cooking in the kitchen, I bet that door bell means a visit from Teeny. As she tries to sing, Fibber tries to keep Teeny quiet. Teeny tells Fibber that it’s someone else’s birthday today too. The Boy Scouts of America. After a plug for the Scouts, another joke or two, and pulling a fast one on McGee, Teeny departs. The Kingsmen sing, the Cat Song.
Fibber still has the phone lines buzzing when he makes arrangements with Kraemer to bring over ice cream. Mayor Latrivia enters to talk about budgets. When he uses a figure of speech, Fibber and Molly confuse the issue of what he meant. Everybody rushes in for Molly’s surprise party, but she has her own surprise. Of course it’s not her birthday, but what day is it?
