Lucy and pal Viv are asked by Mr. Mooney (Lucy’s boss) to birdsit his cockatiel, Greenback. Naturally, the bird gets loose. Lucy tries to get her (or him – the bird’s gender switches back and forth) off the roof without success.
Lucy and Viv go to the pet store to buy a replacement bird. Little do they know that Greenback flew back home. Mr. Mooney suspects that the women will try to switch birds and is hip to their scheme.
The episode ends with Greenback safe at home with Mr. Mooney and the new bird telling the ladies that they’re “both birdbrains”.
