Curiosity over Phil’s latest hit record has even Alice wondering what the Thing is. Phil heads to his band practice. Will he share the royalty check fairly with his musicians? Will there be a mutiny in the band, or taking extra jobs to cover the high cost of living? Remley has taken a babysitting job. Phil has a way with cute, little baby Myrtle… or is she a Clyde. How will Phil xplain the baby to Alice? She sings, Ask Me How Do I Feel.
The search for the baby’s mother is on, as Phil and Alice knock on doors. Remley can’t remember which of the 18 babies who he was watching, that this one is. After checking every house in the neighborhood, they try the children’s shelter, where Julius is volunteering. The girls join the fun to tease Phil about his acting, and hit songs. They sing, the Thing for Kids.
Phil pitches collecting toys for needy kids at Christmas time.
Note: Phil is often referred to in the show as Wonga, his middle name. Also to his Indian heritage. He really has no Indian blood, but is said to have had a Cherokee friend of the family who helped raise him.
