Helping Cedric out of trouble in his love life, Abner has gotten himself into the doghouse in his own. Today, he reviews his confused situation with Lum. The bachelor is glad he has remained single all these years, and avoiding entanglements with a woman.
A phone call home finds Abner leaving a message with little Pearl. Will it help smooth things over? As Mousey Gray enters, Abner leaves to go check on things.
Lum learns how Mousey and Gussie go through hard times in their relationship. Does Lum’s bachelor status give him a special observation on women, to figure them out, and to offer advice on patching up relationships? In fact, will his phone call to Lizabeth do more to patch things up, or dig a deeper hole for Abner.
