Jerry is getting ready to Graduate from college and both his father and Herb have a job ready for him to step into. When he shows up at the Herb's house with both of them ready to lay a job on him, he announces he has a job already- 2 hours North of Nome, Alaska. This goes over with his mom and Eve like a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor. Jerry's wife, now pregnant and due in a few months with their first Grandchild to deliver in Alaska? They are in tears. The two fathers-in-law try to calm Kay and Eve and offer them each a vacation trip to try and make them quite pestering the kids.
This is a typical Bob Carroll Jr and Madeline Davis type of script, broad based appeal humor. It works here as well as it did in I Love Lucy, and The Lucy show. This one plays like the Abbott & Costello movie "Lost In Alaska" and both Maye and Eve have nightmares about visiting the kids in Alaska. These sequences are much like the movie.
The Alaska part appears to be films indoors on a set.
The jokes are very much the same as what the comedy team did on film. While the feud is not solved this episode, there is plenty of fun to go around for everyone.
