As the McGees get ready for dinner, Fibber ends up on a phone call. Mirt the phone operator has her usual confusion. Fibber brags about his part on the Parrot Teachers Association. Mayor Latrivia pops in for a visit. Doesn’t he realize its time for dinner? The McGees get confused over the expression, â€˜A stitch in time saves nineâ€™. The slow burning frustration isnâ€™t enough to get the mayor to pop out. Will he take Fibbers hints to leave? Is the mayor dropping his own hints that heâ€™d really like to be invited to share the pot roast? Billy Mills plays, Get Me to the Church on time.
The old Timer visits to get confused at who the mayor actually is. Fibber and Moly get lured into the word play, but nobody can convince the old gent. That ainâ€™t the way he hearâ€™d it. Will Harlowe Wilcox do any better at getting rid of the pesky politician. You can at least expect some spin for the sponsor.
Abigail Uppington visits, and is concerned over Fibbers weakened condition. She offers to have the McGees over for a fancy French dish. What was that fancy name of the dish again? Fibber could be missing something good. The Kingsmen sing, Victory Ahead.
Now its the mayors turn to think Fibber is sickly, and needs to be put to bed. By the time Latrivia leaves, it could be too late for the much anticipated, but now ruined pot roast. No worries, its off to the restaurant, but thereâ€™s still one little problem for the McGeeâ€™s.
