Synopsis


The show must go on!

Starring as the lead in the Tom Landry Middle School "Nursing Home Follies," Bobby meets an old showbiz hack with a ventriloquist dummy named Chip. The man gives Chip to Bobby, seeing a star quality that will help bring Chip back to life. Bobby gladly accepts and brings Chip home with him. At first, Hank is ashamed of Bobby for playing with dolls. But when Bobby and Chip start revealing their knowledge of sports, Hank warms up to the idea of Bobby having the dummy around.

While watching sports at Hank's, Dale sees Chip for the first time and begins conjuring up suppressed memories of his childhood fear of ventriloquist dolls. Dale leaves the house and begins plotting a way to take Chip out. Meanwhile, Hank starts to get closer with Chip than he is with Bobby. Bobby is jealous, but he feels that sacrifice is the price of fame.

All of Dale's plans to destroy Chip fail, so he finally kidnaps the doll himself and stuffs it in his woodchopper. Hank is furious, so he begins building a better Chip in his wood shop. Peggy is upset by Hank's insensitivity towards Bobby and reprimands him for not spending more time with his son. Hank finally comes to his senses and builds a ventriloquist Bobby instead. ?
