On a movie studio tour, Eddie meets aspiring actress, Dolly Daly, who is recently arrived in Los Angeles and who Eddie sees as a potential mother. Eddie invites her home more as an act of generosity than anything. Dolly accepts, much to Tom's consternation especially since he can't fully explain to Eddie why what he did was wrong. Back at the apartment, Tom tries to explain to Dolly that she can't stay but in a losing battle, he ultimately let's her sleep on the couch. The next morning, Mrs. Livingston sees Dolly on the couch and is angry with Tom for what she sees as the bad example he is setting for Eddie by having one of his dates stay overnight. Mrs. Livingston storms out, Eddie and Tom thinking that she's gone forever. Just as Tom feels at the end of his rope, he comes up with an idea: he sends Dolly off to deal with Norman who has always wanted to do a story on young women new to Los Angeles hoping to make it into the movie business. In doing so, Tom solves most of his problems ... Written by
