Fibber is full of pent up energy, and is restless as a kitten. He tells about the neighbor’s new boarder, should the McGee’s consider doing the same? A call to the Elks club is intercepted by Mirt the phone operater, and Fibber learns about a saddle sore relative. Fibber jokes about fellow radio comedian, Bob Hope. Getting ready to step out to the movies, Teeny pops in, and swoons over Frank Sinatra, but will she have to hang out with other friends? Billy Mills plays a smooth dance tune.
Downtown, Fibber haggles over the price of the tickets. Innside the darkened theater, Fibber misses his newsreels to get some candy. Instead, he runs into Harlowe Wilcox. What secret will he learn from Harlowe? Nothing but the sponsor message.
Finding himself out of pocket change, Fibber runs into his critical pal, Doc Gamble. Back in the theater, and newsreel over, Fibber raises a ruckus, when he is accused of being a purse snatcher. Rescued by Molly, the McGee’s take refge in the office. The Kingsmen sing, Pistol Packing Mama.
A phone call lets the McGee’s know the coast is clear, and Wellington the theater manager talks to them about the misunderstanding. Back in the theater, the newsreel is missed, once again, but Mayor Latrivia, now of the Coast Guard, tells of the dire need for women to join the ranks. There has been enough excitement and confusion for the evening, but will Fibber at least get his candy bar?
Note: The candy counter girl is Shirley Mitchell, also known as Leila Ransom from the Great Gildersleeve show. In coming weeks, she would have a recurring role with Fibber an Molly.
