Rush's enthusiasm for his friend's new skill is a bit much for Sade and Vic, as he goes overboard. Pleats in socks?
To be honest, many of the pre-1938 scripts seem a bit dated, and this episode is probably as good of an example as any. Learning how to sew pleats was part of that era's rite of passage for most females. Sewing, cooking and the like proved the female was becoming fit to being a homemaker. Rush's enthusiastic approach to helping her shows he is growing up as well, with his eyes focused on Margaret during the late 1930's. This would wane, later.
