Contemplating what busybody things to do today, Fibber talks with the mailman, formerly the soda jerk at Kraemer’s drugstore. A letter has come from his cousin, Roy. The cousin wants the McGee’s to come for a visit, and possibly run one of his canneries for him. A phone call doesn’t go through, but Fibber learns about a relative of Mirt’s who is a delivery boy. As Fibber rants about Mirt’s talkativeness, Billy Mills plays, Here It Is Monday.
Is Fibber rushing into something he doesn’t know about? Has that ever stopped him? His big ideas are cut short by a visit from Mr Wellington. The theater manager has a problem, and a question about their house, if its for sale. Harlowe Wilcox enters to hear of Fibbers fortune, and turn it into the theme for his commercial, and one for V-mail.
As Fibber dreams of the wild outdoors, where indians and grizzly bears fill the woods of Oregon, Teeny visits. Fibber tries to tell her where baby salmons come from. The tiny tot has to set Fibber straight on the truth of the salmon cycle of life. The Kingsmen sing, The Sound Affects Man.
Beulah enters to tell how dinner is coming along. Will she go to Portland with them? What will her boyfriend think? Fibber has his dreams of how he’ll spend his money interrupted by a visit by Doc Gamble. Reading the telegram, Doc spots a mistake that Fibber has been making, and bursts his bubble of wealth.
