Margit has planned the wedding and the honeymoon - in fact, Margit plans everything down to what they will have for breakfast every day.

So she says she is in love with Charlie, a bohemian artist/producer who lives in a trailer behind Spike's Place. When Margit confronts Charlie about giving up Irene, Charlie sees that she is the one for him. To make everyone happy, Charlie will have to help Waldo get a backbone.

Waldo, what are you thinking about?

I was thinking we'd better get some sleep

if we're going to be at the shop at 3 sharp.

If we're late, Margit will be furious.


Blow me down, babe,

it's a knockout.

- Did you design it yourself?

- Every stitch of it.

I've planned Irene's wedding dress

for years.

- How do you like it, babe?

- Well, it's lovely, but is it me?

You see, I had something else in mind.

More along the lines of what Garbo wore

when she fled from her true love.

Are you planning on a quick getaway

from Waldo?

Well, I wouldn't blame her

if she did.

Oh, Mrs. Bly, Mr. Waldo Beaver.

Beaver, huh?

Waldo's a sort of distant relative of ours.

Mother, you know, was a Leslie.

The son of her brother, Edward Leslie,

married one of the Boyer girls, Anne Boyer.

Anne's sister

Hermione married Steve Carroll...

...divorced Steve

and married Elmer Beaver...

...who had three brothers,

Andrew, Paul and Alexander.

Andrew was married twice.

His first wife was a Brewster.

His second wife was the widow

of Martin Thomas, ne Caroline Cook.

Andrew and Caroline

were the parents of Waldo.

- Get it?

- Nope.

All that just for Waldo.

Waldo, will get up there?

I wanna see you two together.


Now, aren't you ashamed because you

complained about wearing striped trousers?

Well, I always thought that a man

that wore fancy pants was...

I beg pardon, Miss Agnew.

The report's ready.

Yes. Come along, Mrs. Bly.

Oh, why show me reports?

Why can't we stay around and play

with Waldo and Irene for a little while?

Waldo, I love my sister very much.

Me too, Irene.

And she loves us very much.

You know, she's the finest,

most generous person in the world.


- But sometimes I wonder.

- Me too.

I angeled this joint for only one reason...
