New Years resolutions for George include being more romantic, and not having Gracie’s Ladie’s Uplift Society in his house. With a meeting in full swing to raise money, Gracie is willing to break one of her resolutions so they’ll be the same. Bill Goodwin enters with advice to get rid of the cackling women, but it degrades into a swooning qqqchance at a commercial.
The ladies decide to put on a play. For their version of Dr Jekhil and Mr Hide, they wonder who would be hideous enough for the lead role. Paul Whiteman plays, the Six Hits and a Miss sing, You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To.
George doesn’t want anything to do with the ladies, their cclub, or their play. Nothing’s impossible for a determined Gracie, but first she has to fill other roles, and bend the ladies to her will in filling the parts. Walter Tetley pops in, afraid the racket the ladies are making means that someone is in danger. Jimmy Cash sings, Moonlight Becomes You.
It’s back to trying to convince George to play the lead. He’ll get to share the stage with the moaning, man crazy, Tootsie. Though he refuses, George goes to his room to practice. Bill Goodwin returns to proclaim the merits of the sponsor product.
Walter Tetley is also back, and George puts his foot into his mouth to get in trouble with the cops. Can George act his way out of the arrest? Will Gracie’s explanation about the play do him any favors?
Note: In keeping with the times, jokes about the new rationing system, A-books for gasoline, butter shortages, air raid wardens, and others are woven into the show. Not to mention an epilog designed to get people to turn in their waste cooking fat to make munitions for the war effort.
