Synopsis: Peter Sellers stars as Harold Fine, a self-described square--a 35-year-old Los Angeles Lawyer who is not looking forward to middle age and his upcoming wedding. His life changes, however, when he falls in love with Nancy, a free-spirited, innocent, and beautiful young hippie. After Harold and his family enjoy some of her "groovy" brownies, he decides to "drop out" with her and become a hippie too. But can he return to his old life when he discovers that the hippie lifestyle is just a little too independent and irresponsible for his tastes?

I am 33 years old. Now, that's not

an easy thing for me to say.

Will you please stop talking

for just one minute?

- Help me push this car out of the way.

- I just wanna know one thing, Harold.

- One thing, is all I wanna know.

- What?

Am I going to be your wife, or am I

going to continue to be your concubine?

- Don't give me that concubine stuff.

- It's all right.

- What is it going to be?

- You think I'm an Arab or something?

That's funny. Just to be funny now.

I'm asking you to answer my question.

Harold, you give me

an answer now or it's over.

Will you just help me?

Otherwise, we're gonna be

stuck here.

Self. You always think of yourself.

- I'm helping you now.

- You're not helping me.

- Put your hand behind...

- I had my hand here.

- What do you want me to do?

- When I tell you, push.

- Now, push when I say push.

- I'm doing that.

Now, I'm releasing the hand brake.

Now, push.

How about Labor Day?

For what?

For getting married.


Oh, Harold!

Oh, Harold!

We're getting married. Labor Day?

You happy?

- Are you happy?

- Yeah, yeah.

I can let you use this

until we fix you up.

- You sure this is all you have?

- Yep. Belongs to my kid.

He was supposed

to take the night shift.

Big shot ran off to San Francisco

with a colored girl.

My wife's going crazy.

But, I mean,

I can't drive around in this.

I have to go to my office.

I have to go to court tomorrow.

I'm sorry,

that's all I've got, Mr. Fine.

And then suddenly,

tonight it all fell into place.

And he was...

He was like a man, Mama.

You know what I mean?

He was a man

who knew what he wanted.

Look, relax, she'll run fine.

- She'll run fine, don't worry about it.

- Yeah.

And jiggle the key when you get in.

- Harold, my mother is hysterical.
