Our little star is planning on spending time in Palm Springs, so after breakfast with Rochester, and doing some packing, he’ll be heading out. Polly gets upset when Jack leaves, so he tries to trick her into thinking that Palm Springs actually spelt, vacuum cleaner. Mary phones into check on the travel plan. Dennis Day pops in with a problem with his tooth, and news about his mom. He sings a Mexican ballad.
The Maxwell has a rough start, and soon Jack is picking up Mary. As they drive, they listen to the Sportsmen on the radio.
The traffic on the highway is thick, but Jack can’t believe Mary’s explanation for it. Will Jack actually splurge, and fill his gas tank for the trip? Bob Crosby pulls into the same gas station, and talks to Jack about his band members. Will Jack’s shortcut get him to Palm Springs any quicker?
