With the girls off to visit their Aunt Winifred, Orville, Betty Jo's boyfriend, is helping Uncle Joe around the hotel. The girls want to change their vacation plans when they learn that an old friend of Kate's from high school is coming for a visit. Kate admits that she had a crush on H.J. Grant - Herbie - when she was a freshman and he a senior. His letter implies that he is now wealthy, and is coming back to the valley on personal business. Kate has no expectations of Herbie, and will let whatever happens between the two of them happen. Uncle Joe, however, believes that Herbie is a gigolo after Kate's money. As such, Uncle Joe, with Orville's help, decides to do whatever he needs to to break up any possibility of a romance between Kate and Herbie, even involving the law. But if Uncle were to find out that Herbie is really as rich as he says, it may be more difficult for Uncle Joe to undo all the things he did against Herbie without some serious consequences.
