Episode Summary

EDIT

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!
