It has been a week since Gildersleeves has had a baby mysteriously thrust upon him to take care of. Subtle changes have crept into the household. With the womenfolk making plans on going out this evening, it looks as though Gildersleeves will be on his own to watch the baby tonight. Unless of course, he can shirt his duties off onto someone elsse.
With no takers, the family leaves for their various social events, leaving Gildy to embrace his duties. As the baby naps, Gildy reads books on parenting. In a paranoid state, he wakes the baby and now she won’t stop crying. The desperate Gildersleeves phones Peavey for help, but advice comes with his friend Adeline visits. A soothing song has the baby resting, at least until Peavey arrives.
