The Wooing of Abigail Jones on TV.com
Their first plan is to impress the romantic Abigail by Hank covering a puddle with his jacket following Sir Walter Raleigh's example. Unfortunately Abigail slips.
After their first plan backfires, they convince Adam (who doesn't want to get involved) to help. This makes things worse because Abigail now believes it's Adam who's wooing her and Hank thinks Adam is trying to steal her away. Further plans to catch Abigail's interest fail.
Then, after all hope has gone, Abigail hears Hank singing and suddenly she falls in love with him. They marry soon.
