Princess Millicent von Schlepp (who is actually Aunt Millie from Marshybottom, Iowa) arrives in her sedan chair for a visit. She's a snob, even though her husband squandered all her money but oil stocks. She has a literal handmaiden, Lady Fingers, that Thing falls desperately in love with. Millicent insists that they spruce up the place, and dress accordingly. Fester the Jester is not amused and the rest of the family aren't either. Upset that they don't treat her like royalty, she retreats to a hotel. Oil is discovered on her property and she's rich again. Morticia is relieved that she's gone, and will give no more orders, "The Addams Family is a democracy again."

Gomez agrees to invite Millicent back. but Millicent has fired Lady Fingers and hired a new maid, Esmeralda, another disembodied hand. Thing goes missing, and Millicent discovers one of her bracelets has been stolen. She thinks Thing is guilty, but Gomez proves Esmeralda is the thief: Thing returns with Lady Fingers. The two are engaged. Millicent hires her back, and Thing promises to wait for Lady Fingers.
