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?

- Yeah?

What kind of a car is this?

It's all they have.

What? Are you telling me

that this is all that you have?

- I'm sorry. That's all we've got.

- Harold, come on, this is ridiculous.

It's only for two days, Joyce.

Well, you live long enough,

you see everything.

- Listen, Harold...

- Make sure you have my car soon.

- Leave that to me.

- Maybe we can get her to cater a dinner.

She may smoke a little,

but don't worry about it.

I was thinking

maybe a wedding breakfast.

You know, like Marilyn Bachrach had.

Good morning, Mr. Fine.

- Hiya, Harold.

- Good morning, Murray.

Hey, I finally beat Jerry Ritzlin, 7-5.

My serve is starting to work for me.

And my elbow doesn't hurt anymore,

which means I am now hitting it right.

You know I was serving

with a bent elbow?

That's what screwed me up.

But now... coming straight over.

You okay, kid?

I'm fine.

- No, I'm okay.

- You've got that look.

What look?

You know, when you get fakakta.

Joyce and I

are getting married Labor Day.

That's great. That is just great.

I think it's the right move.

The right move?

You should've done it two years ago.

Labor Day, huh? No harm.

You are getting

a wonderful woman in Joycie.

Good morning, Mr. Burns.

Good morning, Mr. Fine.

Good morning.

Come here, you beautiful creature.

Oh, Murray.

I'm gonna attack you

before the wedding.

Oh, he told you. He told you.

- Half a cup of black, Joycie.

- Alrighty.

- Are the Rodriguezes here?

- They're in the other office.

- All right.

- Could I see you for a minute?

Would you prepare the Rodriguez file,

please, Joyce.

I've already done that.

Would you just read this

for a moment, Mr. Fine?

There you are.

"Mr. And Mrs. Bernard Miller request

the honor of your presence"...

They've got them already, huh?
