Ration points are tight, and dictate the shopping list, as Fibber goes to the grocery store. He runs into an old friend, Bill from back in Peoria. The childhood friends get caught up on news from back home, and Bill meets Alice Darling. The McGee’s are just like a mother… and father to her. Billy Mills plays, Sensation.
Showing hospitality to Bill means Fibber has to head back out for more groceries. First a visit from Mr Wellington to tell about some trouble with some relatives. Bill gets caught up on Fibber’s old vaudeville act he did with Fred Nitney of Starved Rock, Illinois, then Harlowe Wilcox pops in for the commercial. Being a broadcast for AFRS, it gets snipped short, and added music is inserted. The Kingsmen sing, Starwood Mountain.
Beulah enters to ask a favor, and shares a little about her work for the Tupes family. The Kingsmen sing, Mairzyy Dotes.
The McGee’s and Bill get caught up, but somehow never quite mention places in town they once knew. Are they sure they know him? Doc Gamble enters, but the bickering duo might need to keep it down to keep from waking the house guest. Night passes, and the truth about Bill comes out over breakfast.
