    The Hilldale hospital needs a children's playroom and the Hilldale women are working to raise $2500. Meanwhile, the Jeff's neighborhood football team, The Bobcats, needs a tackling dummy ($33). Mrs. Lydia Langley returns reprising her role from episode 2, "Pardon My Gloves," as a rival with her own idea on how to raise the money. Mrs. Stone wants to hold a concert to raise the $2,500 in one event, while Lydia feels a play raising $250 is realistic. Mrs. Stone is using every trick she can to meet and ask a world renowned concert pianist who is vacationing in Hilldale (after a 34 country world tour) for his help. It is Jeff, though, who meets him and develops a close friendship with his daughter.

    Tune in to see how all of these people and needs converge. Will Mrs. Stone have her concert or have to act in another play directed by Mrs. Langley. Will Jeff and the Bobcats get their tackling dummy? Could Jeff ever talk a tired world class pianist into doing a concert, when doing one benefit would open the flood gates to each and every other charity in Hilldale and even Chicago!

Mrs. Stone is relying upon a director who, based upon her past performances of the role. feels she should be Nora and not Mrs. Stone. Thus while saying she is helping Mrs. Stone, she isn't helping as much as if she was happy being the director.

    Meanwhile their Sons are having their own private discussions about their Mothers and the play. This lands Jeff both with two black eyes and in hot water with his Mother that is until Mrs. Stone learns what Jeff won't tell her.

    Tune in and find out how Mrs. Stone deals not only with her own issues, but helps her Son take another step towards being a young man (of the 1950's).
