In convincing Fibber to rise and shine, Molly’s reverse psychology gets him thinking he’s a tired old man. Jumping out of bed, he works out to an exercise program on the radio with Frank Nelson. Now eager to get physically fit, Fibber becomes health conscious about his breakfast. Abigail Uppington pops in to tell about being hostess at the military man’s canteen, and jitterbugging with the Marines. Billy Mills plays, Mr Five by Five.
After his healthy breakfast of 14 pancakes, Fibber’s exercise is interrupted with a visit from Wallace Wimple. Wallace gets an earful of Fibbers training exploits, and return the favor with tales of his big old wife Sweetie Face. Harlow Wilcox enters to twist the topic onto the sponsor product.
Should Fibber call Sweetie Face to make amends for his comments about her? Not until after a quick chat with Mirt the phone operator. Teeny comes over to sell chances on her punchboard, and we learn her take on supporting the war effort. The Kingsmen sing, By the Light of the Silvery Moon.
Mayor Latrivia enters but manages to say the wrong things about a bath robe he got from the McGee’s as a gift. Wallace Wimple is back, to say that Fibber is safe from his workout with Sweetie Face, and the latest dirty trick he played on her.
