The episode opens with a very upset Peg. She is worried about Junior who is acting quite oddly. Riley isn't worried thinking it's just a simple girl crush, but after he talks to Junior he becomes very upset to learn he's in love with his teacher.

A bell from an ice cream truck going by brings comedy to this episode. Fearing he's in love with his son's teacher, Riley tries to romance his wife to see if he hears bells with her. He becomes even more worried when he doesn't. His friends, Gillis and Digger give him advice on solving his problem

Missing from this episode is Babs and Waldo.
