Announcer introduction: "Molly Goldberg enlisted for the duration yesterday, only she hasn't quite come to grips with her problem. Molly promised a neighbor to watch out for her two little children while the mother worked in a defense plant. Of course, Molly hasn't asked what Jake thinks of this yet... and early today... it's still dark... her new job begins... Listen..."
