Kate's southern belle of a cousin, Mae Belle Jennings, comes to Hooterville for an unexpected visit, she who lives her life by "flitting" from one place to another. Cousin Mae, who is enamored by gallant men, unintentionally causes problems between Floyd and Charley, who recently and happily celebrated their twenty-fifth anniversary of working together. The problem is is that both men want to court Cousin Mae. They both will do whatever they can do earn Cousin Mae's favor, even if it means breaking up their professional partnership and their friendship. Seeing what is happening between Charley and Floyd, Kate thinks she has a plan to bring the two friends back together, but Kate's plan worsens the matter. So she turns to Plan B, which entails having a chat with Cousin Mae, who it seems is used to being the cause of bickering between men. Written by
