Molly is excited to learn that Fibber is to deliver a speech over the radio. Isn’t he nervous at all? What made the Elks club pick him over Mr Wellington, the theater manager? The speech is to raise funds for the Red Cross. Alice Darling enters to learn about the speech, but she has to bow out of listening. Is she more interested in a sock hop than the war effort? Billy Mills plays, When They Ask About You.
In his constant rehashing of the speech, Fibber delivers plenty of patriotic pitches for the Red Cross. Mr Wellington arrives with no hard feelings and wants a copy of the speech for the newspapers. Harlowe Wilcox uses some of Fibber’s radio sound effect enhancements for his speech, for delivering the sponsor message.
Beulah, the maid for the Tupes family enters. She just wants to see how Molly’s recent dinner went that she helped with. Did she also just wrangle a job with the McGee’s? The Kingsmen sing, The Kid With the Rips in His Pants.
Doc Gamble pops in to offer advice for the speech, and add to the patriotic description the Red Cross does. It’s off to the studio, where Fibber faces his big moment, but will it go well for him?
