Johnathan rips his britches as he and Toby sneak off to see a ballgame. Ducking for cover into Millie McIvor's dress shop, they convince Millie and impressionable young helper Lucy that the rip must be mended. While waiting in his under shorts, Johnathan is forced to dive for cover when stuffy old Mrs. Hornblower and her spry but lecherous husband drop in to see Millie's new dresses. In a hilarious hiding scene—done in slow motion to heighten the suspense—Toby slides under the table and Johnathan hops into a closet only to be discovered by Millie's worldly friend Jennie Gifford. The Hornblowers stalk out, much to Jennie's delight, making Millie realize that she is missing all the fun. One int. set. Approximate running time: 60 minutes.
