Storyline

In avoiding head councilwoman Mrs. Billings, Rob thinks he's finally gotten away from directing this year's New Rochelle Parents Council's annual variety show that he's done for the past several years. He doesn't mind directing or performing in the show but hates the audition process as Laura is the only really talented woman in the community and Rob doesn't like telling the other women that his wife, once again, has the lead in the show, but Mrs. Billings does eventually catch up with him, thanks to Laura, who likes that inside edge of having a husband who makes the casting decisions.

Quotes

Millie Helper: [auditioning with a sentimental love song she wrote herself] "My heart got a smash in the face. That night I will never erase.
