Darling, do you have a headache?

Yes, I do. I think

it's the glasses.

Oh, come here.

Lie down.

Oh, Russ, can't you see?

She went because she had to.

A girl needs love.

Well, I love her.

She's my little girl,

my little baby.

I'd do anything for her, and...

I have it!

Pop, can I get you

your slippers?

How about a pipe?

No, no, no, no, no.

How would you like

to do your old dad

a big, big favor, though?

Mow the lawn?

No, no. You're all off.

Sit down.

Uh, Dorothy, you remember

Jeffrey Matthews?

No, I don't, dear.

I introduced you to him

at the convention.

He smokes a pipe. Oh, yes.

Yeah, well, his son is

out here for the summer.

He's a wonderful boy... er, man.

He's a college man.

A-a-a real serious student

and accomplished musician.


Now, naturally,

Jeffrey would like to think

that his boy was dating

the right kind of girl.

Daddy, how could you?

Francie! How could you?

How could I what?

Oh, gosh, Mom, you know

how I feel about dates.

But I thought you

enjoyed yourself.

Oh, that hot-wet-hand-set.

Oh, it's so icky!

I... I mean, breathing down

a person's neck.

Well, now, take Dizzy

Maynard, for instance.

Now, there's a perfectly

swell guy

when he's helping me dissect

snails in a biology class.

On a date, ugh,

he gets all unglued.

Well, he probably was nervous.

He was only a mess.

Oh, Daddy, I mean,

I... I don't mean to be edgy

or rude to you, but...

Oh, gee, I've got

a real serious problem.

Darling, why didn't you tell us?

Oh, what is it, Francie?



I've got to raise a mint

in a hurry.

Well, how much is a mint?

Well, including what I have

on hand, an extra...

21.50 would do it.

21.50 is too much.

Oh, Pop, please.

Oh, Pop, it could

mean sheer heaven

or months and months

of stark solitude.
