When Beth realizes that Jerry is determined to marry Carlee, she decides she must find out the truth. Turning to their friend Bill, a Private Investigator, she confesses her secret and asks for help. Unaware of Beth's suspicions, Carlee misunderstands Beth's apparent disapproval of her relationship with Jerry.
