Guest is William Bendix, star of movies and the Life of Riley show. Special appearance later by Herbert Marshall.
As George gets ready to head out for the office, Gracie wants to prepare him breakfast. Through some various joking about food and family. Bill Goodwin arrives to catch things out of context and misunderstanding, he thinks Gracie is going to have a baby. Their scene turns into a commercial.
William Bendix arrives to talk over times in Brooklyn with Gracie. Jimmy Cash sings, Goodnight.
Gracie really isn’t from Brooklyn, it is just a ploy to lure William over. She tries to fake her way through knowledge of the Brooklyn landscape. Working with an acting teacher, Gracie sets out to make William Bendix into another Ronald Coleman. When she’s through with him, he’ll have enough clas to pick up the most beautiful women.
When George gets home, Gracie doesn’t want him to learn that she has turned the house into a school of culture. She explains to him that William is there for acting lessons from George, rather than the teacher who is really to do it. Four Hits and a Miss sing, My Ideal.
Gracie needs to get rid of William before George tries to culture him, but William won’t go without at least a little bit of culture training. Can Gracie manage it? Well, maybe enough for him to pick up an ugly dame, and barely miss getting into a fight with Bill Goodwin.
William Bendix can’t escape fast enough, and George does his part in culturing him, and sings to the escaping guest.
On a parting note, Herbert Marshall drops in to plug the March of Dimes.
