Fester's been sly and secretive lately, more than usual, and has also taken to intercepting the daily newspaper deliveries. He's been scanning the lonely hearts columns looking for a bride. Fester finally fesses up and writes a letter, with Gomez happy to snap the picture to adjoin it. Days pass without a response. When Miss Carver appears at the door, she's mistaken for Fester's correspondent - a desperate wanna-be housewife with suitcase in hand ready to move in. She's actually a door-to-door cosmetics saleswoman, and her smooth and mildly seductive sales pitch, with a 90-day plan to make over Fester, is mistaken for a callous disregard in matters of the heart. When she discovers what she's been mistaken for, she flees, never to return.

You can't force me!
I never use force, just gentle persuasion. And sometimes in difficult cases I merely give a free sample and leave the prospect to think it over.

Miss Carver! We don't continence such behavior in this house.
Well, then I'll be happy to accept cash.
