Taking a break from the disaster, Gracie answers the door to chat with the postman. The exuberant dynamo of a man gives a manly roar strength for her.

The pipes are soon fixed, and George proudly shows off to Gracie the result of his handiwork.
Felix Mills plays, Me and My Gal. The proof in the pudding is when George continues to show that the fixtures, and circuitry, in the house work… sort of. Jimmy Cash is back to sing, Time Waits for No One.
