Episode opens with Mr. Peepers on the train to Chicago to attend Mr. Weskit's stag party. Peepers starts a conversation with a fellow train passenger by saying he is going to Chicago, where Kukla, Fran & Ollie come from. A muscular baby on the train won't release his hand and then tears off part of his tie. In the taxi, he asks the driver if they are near the Museum of Natural History, but the driver has never heard of it. Marge's family is quite rich, as her father owns a meat packing firm; as Peepers knocks on the door, many berries fall off the wreath onto the porch. The butler lets him in and shows him to the library, where he takes down a book and then can't fit it back onto the shelf. Then he pulls down a giant dictionary. Making conversation with Marge is difficult because he does not want to reveal Wes' faults. Marge tells Robinson that Wes will be leaving the junior high school and taking a job in the meat packing firm. The stag party is being held at Club Wow! Marge's football player brother, Rock, and his friends bully Robinson into drinking and smoking cigars. Rock doesn't like people who never played football. He would be Wes' boss at the meat packing plant. When Peepers leaves for a moment, Rock makes fun of him. Wes leaves right away with Robinson and they catch an earlier train home; Wes reveals he won't be leaving the school after all. Marge shows up on the train and says she's going back with them for Christmas vacation. Wes falls victim to the strong baby. At the end of the program, Peepers promotes Christmas Seals
