Wheezer's parents fight constantly. When he overhears them threatening divorce, he tells his friends in the gang. At first they think a divorce is something good, maybe something to eat. But when they find out what one really is, they devise a plan to get Wheezer's parents back together. They decide to give Wheezer all the medicines in his medicine cabinet to make him sick, so that his parents will forget their differences in their concern for their boy.

When Stymie's mama realises Wheezer may have taken poison in his attempt to get sick (so that his parents would stop arguing), she opens what is apparently a real telephone book, running her finger across a page that says: "For Los Angeles, in an emergency, Call or Dial the Number Listed Below - Fire Department - FItzroy-3131 - Police Department - FAber-6111 - Ambulance, Receiving Hospital - FAber-3111. FItzroy and FAber were actual exchanges in the Los Angeles telephone system before 1958. See more

You ain't mad at me, are you, Daddy?
Why, no. Daddy loves little Wheezer.
And you aren't mad at Petey, are you, Daddy?
And you aren't mad at Stymie, are you, Daddy?
You mean, the little pickaninny? Why, no.
