After making a date with Gladys, Henry phones her to iron out details of when to pick her up. He still needs some advice from his dad on how to conduct himself, and to figure out if the time for the date will interfere with dinner. Meanwhile, in Gladys Prentice home, we find the equally awkward teen working out protocols with her mother in connecting with Henry. Has Henry been invited for dinner, or not? Second guesses, and assumptions abound. Will he need a suit, or formal dress?
The time has come, and ready for the best, Henry calls on Gladys in his tuxedo. Crossed wires, and confusion continue when Henry learns that Gladys expected to be taken out, and not have dinner at home. Meanwhile, the elder Mr Aldrich is dining out. Can the younger Mr Aldrich tag along, and have his dad pick up the tab at the high class restaurant with the high class prices?
Homer holds Henry’s money bag, and ends up tagging along while Gladys orders, leaving Henry with little more than bread and water. How will Henry ever pay for the feast tonight? What ever happened to his father? Answers are revealed for a happy end to the evening.
