Doc Hall is in line to receive the Sexton Award, and he’s getting ready for the black tie affair. When Merryweather visits we learn the award is to be used for the medical department at Ivy, and that nothing is to stand in the way of Doc Hall from attending. What could possibly keep him from the important meeting? An emergency arises that finds Doc Hall babysitting a couple rambunctious kids.
Elsewhere on campus, the regents of the college are meeting, and worried over Doc Hall’s absence. Will his absence cost the college a large endowment? Toddy tells Vicky after the fact, how his evening of babysitting went, and his visit by the very upset Mr Wellman. In the end, Toddy gets an unexpected surprise, and his time of babysitting pays off for Ivy.
