Phil rushes in the house with disturbing news, his car has been stolen. No worries, his buddy Frankie Remley has borrowed it again. What can Phil do about keeping his prized Chartruse Cadillac from being borrowed by his best buddy? Besides taking some teasing from Alice and her brother Willie about his choice of color schemes among other things, Phil defends his friend, then he strikes on a good idea. Phil has a plan to buy Frankie a cheap used car for himself. What is the scheme that Phil has cooked up?
Will the plan work? Of course, and even better than Phil planned. To make matters even better, Remley knows a guy… Phil sings, My Laurabelle Lee.
At the car lot, and thinking the used car will be for Alice, Frankie does the expected, and buys the cheapest junker he can find. Back home, he presents it to Alice who sings.
Once the truth is revealed, it’s Phil’s turn to claim to know a guy to off load it onto. Julius enters the mix, but he’s no fool as he wise cracks his way along. Can Frankie offload his car? Has he learned a lesson?
PS: As much as Frankie gets Phil into trouble, I’m glad to see the writers put him on the spot this time.
