After 18 years of marriage, Riley still likes to act like a wild, impetuous bachelor, or whatever main character of the latest movie he has just seen. The Riley’s run into Mr and Mrs Morris in a soda shop, and share some small talk. Though Peg is tired of Riley’s antics, Mrs Morris flirts a little with Chester over his ways.
Mr Morris may be buying a new car soon, and Riley may be interested in buying his old one. Later, Chester helps Junior write a love letter for his latest interest, daughter of Mr and Mrs Morris. Riley encourages Junior to deliver the letter, but gets panicky at the last minute and leaves Rileon the doorstep, holding the letter.
At first Mrs Morris thinks the letter is for her, especially after Riley panics and runs away as well. Her daughter recognizes Juniors handwriting, and sets the record straight. However, Riley is afraid that Mrs Morris has fallen for his charms in the misdirected love note.
As he cowers in fear of what he has done, Riley goes for advice to his neighbor, Gillis. In the meantime, Morris phones Riley’s house to ask if he still wants to buy his old car. Riley panics because he still thinks he may still be upset over the love letter.
Digby ODell stops by to share some troubles of his own over his undertaker business. Finally, Morris comes over to sell his car, but Riley still has the idea of Mrs Morris being in love with him in mind, so the talk of the car takes on a new meaning, and to good comic affect.
