Charlie Beary tries to relax but is unaware of a cricket loose in the house. He hears a squeak coming from Bessie's vacuum cleaner, Suzy's doll, and Junior's saxophone. He applies oil to each item. He eventually finds the real source of the squeak, the cricket, and angrily chases it using a bathroom plunger and a baseball bat to help capture it. The result leaves him in bandages but at least things are quiet once more... for a while, at least.
