Announcer introduction: "Molly's dreadful secret is on the verge of explosion... and the secret is that Grace has left Lastenbury with all the money raised for the town's delinquent children. Molly plunged deeper and deeper into deception as she tried to save the girl who came to her home pretending to be Sammy's wife. Molly is a perpetual improver of the human race... by giving George Grace's real husband, a second chance, she saved him, but with Grace she was fooled. Now George is on the train with Grace but the Goldbergs still haven't heard from him, and if he doesn't convince Grace to return the money, the Goldbergs will have to make good on it. In the midst of all this worry, Molly sees her secret pass into the hands of the town loudspeaker, Birdie... Listen..."

Announcer close: "Jake never said a truer word... the gossip burns in Birdie's breast and she can't wait o tell it to Seymour... and you all know Seymour... It looks as if Molly is going to have a Lastenbury storm about her head..."
