Billy Mills and his orchestra open with one of the hit songs of the year, Ma He’s Making Eyes At Me.
Feeling like it’s his day, Fibber expects a package, but instead a couple of girls, Charity and Faith have a word for the McGee’s. The little box contains an Egyptian good luck ring. Just rub it, say the magic words, and luck comes. Harlowe Wilcox arrives with a word, but the luck is the opposite of good. A phone call brings more bad luck, this time from the sponsor. A special delivery might be the luck Fibber wants, an inheritance from old uncle Spuds McGee. Said to have invented the potato chip. Harlowe Wilcox does a little hard sale of the sponsor product.
Down town, the McGee’s meet Abigail Uppington, to tell about her favorite classical composers. What will they find out in the lawyer’s office? The Old Timer is the elevator operator, calling out the departments as they go. Harlowe is back to twist the good luck charm theme into his sponsor message. The estate may have been a substantial one, but will there be anything left once the legal expenses are paid?
The Kingsmen sing, The Lamp Is Low.
Molly has had enough of the Egyptian ring, but Fibber has trouble getting it off. Will Teeny accept it if he can get it off? Will she think its so lucky? Nick Dipopolus finds the McGee’s on the street, but he isn’t interested in Fibbers ring either. Can Fibber slip the ring to his old pal Gildersleeve? Will there be a shift in the luck from bad to good?
Note: The lawyer is played by Gale Gordon.
