At a department store, George seeks help in getting a bone out of his throat. No one will help him; lunch counter girl Gracie wants to talk about airplanes. Written by

Gracie's boss at the soda fountain tells her she's five minutes late. He also tells her to be polite to her customers or she'll be fired. Gracie asks her workmate if she could at least ask for a raise. A customer complains to manager about the service and refuses to pay. Manager says he'll accept that and offers to pay him two dollars to do the same to his competitor across the street. Customer says he got three dollars to do what he just did! George goes to a nearby perfume saleswoman and exclaims he has a bone in his throat. She tries to sell him some supplies. George goes to Gracie's corner and she talks about being on an airplane for six months. And trying to get a parasite. And laws of gravity. All this while George keeps exclaiming about "a bone in his throat"! Then Gracie gets busy with customers... Once again, Burns and Allen are amusing with the non-sequeters and puns and what have you. This was made right after their first (or second) short, Fit to Be Tied and even this early on George and Gracie are natural on screen. Definitely seek this out if you're a Burns and Allen fan!
