Russel talks to Bluetooth Johnson on the phone when Vic comes in in a happy mood. What’s the happy news that Vic is eager to share. It’s important enough of a matter to nudge Russell off the telephone? so all the family can hear.
Sade phones the Stembottoms to arrange for a game of 500, but instead of calling him Fred, she repeatedly calls him Ted, something that seems to be a recent thing in the series. Normally that’s the kind of thing that would usually drive Sade nuts, not respecting someone by not getting their name right.
Is the phone activity over? Can Vic share his good news yet? A telegram arrives as does another phone call. A wrong number for Spider. Maybe it’s that fatheaded baboon who calls for Fats all the time?
Will the interuptions ever end? Now a shopping list needs to be ironed out as Sade sends Russell out the door. Ruthie phones back about the game of cards. Will Vic get his news told? Not if he keeps on pouting like he does at the end of the episode.
