Before going on vacation in Mexico, Rob (Don Grady) and Katie (Tina Cole) leave the triplets with Barbara (Beverly Garland) and Uncle Charley (William Demarest). Chip and Ernie (Stanley and Barry Livingston) are natural babysitters. In Mexico, Katie spends more time worrying about the triplets than having fun with Rob. Meanwhile, little Dodie (Dawn Lyn) may be developing tonsillitis. After Dr. Roy Roberts pays the Douglas family a house call, it is confirmed Dodie must go to the hospital and have her tonsils removed. Surprising her mother and new father, Dodie says he wants Steve (Fred MacMurray) to stay with her in the hospital, rather than Barbara. The delicate request is made by Dodie through her doll "Myrtle". Due to an unexpected slip, Dodie may get her wish. We're told to expect a week of Dodie not speaking loudly, but her tonsils seem strong throughout her illness.
