Wellsir, it’s evening at the small house halfway up the next block. Rush battles it out with his old enemy Algebra. Vic answers the phone, but Rush is certain the call is for him. As Vic talks, Sade gets a little perturbed at the casual use of hers and Vics first names by a uppity 14 year old Rotten Davis. Such a thing just wasn’t done in proper circles in the early 20th century.
Sade won’t let Rush be distracted from his homework by the phone call, and they discuss social plans that Rush may have for the evening. His buddy Rotten Davis calls back, and a date is set up to meet later. Rotten is looking for a cheap place to take his date, and both he and Rush are impressed with the idea of providing the entertainment at home. Almost like being real people. When Ruthie Stembottom wants to play 500 tonight, will the grown ups plan be a conflict of interest?
As Rotten Davis and his gal come calling at the door, Vic and Sade prepare to put on proper airs to greet their house guests in polite style.
