It's pretty obvious that things are not going to turn out well when both Nellie and Laura develop a crush on the same boy ay school. Laura has little but her charms to recommend her but Nellie decides to up the stakes in her own favour when she persuades her parents to buy her a wonderful new inbention called The Talking Machine, which can be used to record and play back someone's speech. Of course, in order to humiliate Laura, Nellie decides to use it to trick her into talking about her crush on the boy in question and then play it back for others to hear it.
A pretty average episode all round. The two young girls did a good job but the script let them down, unfortunately.
