Vicky and Toddy have their sentimental moments at home interupted when they learn of a guest lecturer who is to stop by later. The man is an expert on Shakespeare, and The Halls are supposed to impress him, and win him over to join the faculty. Being from the UK, and before his arrival, the maid shares what she knows about the classic poet and playwright. Can we expect any insight on her part to impress the expert?
Doc Hall is confronted by a weighty Shakespearean question, but is all this too boring for his wife? At least that’s what he’s concerned about, as he contrasts his dusty, acamedic life to that of his actress wife. Not that he can’t be sentimental, as he takes the listener on a flashback to the Hall’s romantic past. The reverie is broken with Doc Bromley visits, and it’s up to Doc Hall to convince the expert to join the faculty at the campus.
Shakespeare isn’t Toddy’s strong suit, but Vicky manages to save the day. Hey, being an actress, she’s familiar with plays, and she’s a great people person.
