With the recent quarantine completely over, and fumigation done, the gents pop in to visit Mousey Gray at his new job. The mild mannered Mousey goes over the options in whipping up an ice cream soda. Mary joins them, but she is preoccupied in seeing the bread truck go by. She isn’t in love with the truck driver is she? The sodas are long in coming, and Mousey has to phone Ed Beckley for instructions.
We find out that as the days draw near for the decision on whether Mary is sent back to the state home, uncle Henry has been forced to put in only good reports on her. Tensions mount on why exactly Mary is interested in the bread truck. Why isn’t she worried over uncle Henry any more? What arrangements has s she made with him? Will Mousey ever figure out how to make an ice cream soda?
Mary slowly tells her story, and about stolen donuts. Her conspiracy with Kenny Pomeroy isn’t making sense to Lum. Why does she think she doesn’t have any more worries over uncle Henry?
