Edgar has become a compulsive horseplayer, much to his mother-in-law's chagrin. In order to get enough money to pay off persistent bookie Charley Hall, he rents his apartment to Bud Jamison. The Kennedy in-laws are going on a month's vacation, which fits into Ed's plans. However, when Jamison throws a wild party and his wife Dorothy Granger shows a more than casual interest in Edgar, the Average Man's finds his troubles are just beginning. Written by
Did You Know?
[after his mother-in-law has turned off the horse race and turned on a cooking show
Now I don't know what happened! When I'm listening to the radio. I don't want any salad dressing with the race results!
I have as much right to listen to cooking lessons as you have to the horse races, and I can eat my results!
Well, you're the only one who can!
