In our second episode, “Switchboard Switcheroo”. The professional rivalry betwee Miss Brooks and Daisy Enright extends into their personal lives. In fact to see these two English teachers engaged in one of their frequent verbal tiffs, either one would cut each other throat for a nickel. No, this isn’t so…And yet again… Hilarity rules!

Our third episode finds Mrs. Davis, Miss Brook’s landlady, styling her very own outlandish hats to sell for Mother’s Day. They are really two hats in one, featuring apples on side, and sparrows on the other...quite a feat for Miss Brooks when she agrees to sell four of the hats to the faculty of Madison High school...with one being sold as a sunshade for a horse!
