Announcer introduction: "Molly's new daughter-in-law, whom none of the Goldbergs have ever seen, arrives by train this afternoon for a visit. All that Molly knows about Grace she learned from her letter, which told how she and Sammy had been married, and how before they could visit the family together, Sammy was shipped overseas. So Grace is on her way to meet her new family... a girl without a history, a background... but Molly's heart goes out to this stranger whom Sammy loves, and right now she is trying to make herself beautiful for the great event... Listen..."

Announcer close: "Poor Molly is rattling from pillar to post trying to make herself into the perfect mother-in-law for the girl she feels sure will be a perfect daughter-in-law. We hope Molly won't be disappointed."
