While trimming hedges, Fred expresses to Barney and Gazoo his excitement about an evening game of bowling, but Wilma, sporting a new hair style, reminds Fred about a violin recital to which Fred promised to accompany Wilma on the same evening. So, Fred feigns a headache to avoid an evening with, to quote Gazoo, "a bunch of long-haired squares."
Wilma announces that she does not intend to go alone to the recital. A school friend of hers, poet and hunk Wilbur Terwiligerock, agrees to be Wilma's "date" to the recital and to a subsequent dance, and Fred literally melts a block of ice tied by Wilma to his not-truly-painful but "hot" head. After watching Wilbur drive Wilma from home in a slick sports car, Fred goes with Barney to the bowling alley, where his preoccupation with Wilma and Wilbur results in a series of accidents.
Fred decides to venture to the post-recital dance and observe his wife and her chaperon, and he commands Gazoo to transform Barney into a woman named Barbara, with whom Fred dances in an attempt to make Wilma jealous. Wilma acts blaze toward Fred's dalliance with the sensual Barney-female, but when Fred and Wilma later discuss the evening, she admits to finding Terwiligerock a pretentious bore, and he confesses to his jealousy- and to the true identity of his mysterious lady-friend.
