Andy is as thrilled as anyone else when Helen gets the news that her children's book is to be published along with a $1000 advance. When he goes with Helen to see her publisher in Raleigh however, he very much feels like a fifth wheel. Soon the townsfolk begin to congratulate Andy and comment on how he will no doubt lead a life of leisure now that he is married to a published and soon to be famous author. Initially, he takes it all in stride but soon begins to bristle at the idea of being a kept man. When Helen breaks a date for the second time, he asks another woman out on a date.
