Having grown a moustache for a TV role, Ricky (Desi Arnaz) seems disinclined to shave off his new lip adornment. Hoping to get Ricky to remove the moustache, Lucy (Lucille Ball) decides to prove how silly he looks by donning a false beard. Alas, the beard has been fastened to Lucy's jowls with "Bulldog Cement" rather than spirit gum -- and nothing she can do will remove the whiskers. Making matters even worse, Ricky is bringing home a talent scout in hopes of landing another TV part. Anxious to make a good impression on the scout, Lucy hatches a scheme to "logically" hide that pesky beard -- and guess what happens next!
