It’s morning in the Burns house, George reads the paper with his feet on the table. The postman delivers the mail, and talks to Gracie about his wife. The lead article in the magazine he just dropped off is about the shortge of men. Three women to each man. Afraid she might lose George, Gracie goes out of her way to be nice to him. She talks to Bill Goodwin about her fears of losing George. Jimmy Cash sings, People Will Say We’re in Love.
To make sure there’s no competition, Gracie has the matrimonial bureau send over the two other women for George to choose from. To stack the table in her favor, she wants to screen the ladies to make sure they are less desirable than her.
First, she has to get rid of George for a little while. Of course, Gracie is never in danger of losing George, but comedy ensues in her quest to have peace of mind.
