Mike writes a new song, but when he is going to be ripped by the publishing company, he's trying to sell the song to, his friends have to help him.
Did You Know?
The song that figures prominently in the plot, "Gonna Buy Me A Dog," is "credited" to Michael Nesmith
but is in actuality a Tommy Boyce
/ Bobby Hart
novelty tune. The reason the song is "credited" to Mike is because during mid-summer 1966 recording sessions for the show, Mike produced a bluesy instrumental version of the song for possible use on the series and the group's first album. Mike's version was not used and languished in storage until 2006. See more
Mike makes 3 phone calls after he finds out his song is going to be published. On the first call he dials 8 numbers, 7 numbers on the second and then just 6 numbers on the third call. See more

Oh, I don't know. I just thought I'd sort of sit around the house and FAIL.
