In the first episode of a two-part story, Lucy (Lucille Ball) turns activist to save the small town of Bancroft, which is slated to be demolished to make room for a new freeway. With sign in hand and slogans in her mouth, Lucy leads the citizens in a protest, blissfully unaware (at first) that her own boss Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) is funding the freeway project. Another of the protesters is Lucy's songwriter friend Mel Tinker (Mel Torme), who pens the stirring ballad "My Home Town" and joins Lucy and legendary song-and-dance man John Bubbles in a performance of the title tune "Main Street USA."
