My Master, the Author
Tony complains that he has no free time because Jeannie waits him to spend every spare moment with her. Roger suggests he find Jeannie a hobby, but she turns down all his suggestions, until she mentions that she could write a book on raising children. Tony gets her to start immediately. Jeannie sends "How To Be A Fantastic Mother" to a publisher under Tony's name. She begins to worry when Tony reports that an astronaut is in trouble for waiting an unauthorized article. When Dr. Bellows reads the author's statement that he can transform the most incorrigible child into a lovable human being, he brings his young nephew Richard for treatment. He warns Tony that if he doesn't succeed, he'll accuse him of writing a fraudulent book. Tony berates Jeannie for writing the book in his name but insists on handling the problem without her help. Gen. Peterson brings his granddaughter, Gina, to be cured of her overwhelming shyness in one evening, but Tony can't break through the girl's reserve. Meanwhile, Richard crashes Tony's model plane through a window and almost sets the house on fire experimenting with rocket fuel. Tony is ready to confess defeat when Dr. Bellows and Gen. Peterson return, but they find Richard repairing the plane, beaming under Gina's adoring praise. Tony inquires if Jeannie used magic, but she replies she found the answer in Chapter 13 of "his book" on how to bring boys and girls together.
