That little city tucked

quietly against the mountains...

...is Santa Barbara, California.

Over 40,000 people live there.

When 40,000 people get together

somewhere, something must be happening.

Let's take a look.

This is Main Street. Only in Santa

Barbara, it's called State Street.

The people here are the same

as people anywhere.

Old people, young people.

For the most part, nice people.

And speaking of nice people,

this is Pop Scully's soda fountain.

Meeting place of the world, Pop calls it.

Everybody loves Pop

and everybody goes there.

That is, everybody except Mr. Pringle.

He's too busy.

He's owner of the local radio station,

sponsor of the community theater...

...president of the bank and he plays golf.

So Mr. Pringle

doesn't get home very often.

Too bad too, it's a beautiful home.

Mr. Foster is a busy man too.

He owns and operates

a fish cannery on the coast.

But he's never too busy

that he can't find time for his family.

Mr. Fosters' home isn't quite as beautiful

as Mr. Pringle's, but he thinks it is.

And he gets home often.

Just around the corner is the high school.

There's always something

going on here...

...especially when Judy Foster

and her friends are around.

Let's go in.

Now, just a minute,

you can't do that to us.

We'd like to come in.

That's better. Thank you very much.

It's a most unusual day

Feel like throwing my worries away

As an old native-born

Californian would say

It's a most unusual day

There's a most unusual sky

Not a sign of a cloud passing by

And if I want to sing

Throw my heart in the ring

It's a most unusual day

There are people meeting people

There is sunshine everywhere

There are people greeting people

And a feeling of spring in the air

It's a most unusual time

I keep feeling my temperature climb

If my heart won't behave

In the usual way

There is only one thing to say

It's a most unusual

Most unusual

Most unusual day

Gee, that was nice, Judy.

Thanks, Oogie. What do you think, Carol?

Well, it's a very cute

little swing number, Judy...

...but frankly, I think it's a bit

juvenile for a senior high school dance.

Judy. Why do you ask her for anyway?

You know my sister

never approves of anything.

Please be quiet. Carol is talking.

Yes, go on, Carol.

Hey, now, wait a minute.

Who's directing this, anyway?

- Carol is, of course.

- Well, naturally.

Women.

Try singing the number slower, Judy.

More seductively.

And a scarf might give you

something to do with your hands.

Like this, follow me.

It's a most

Unusual day

Feel like throwing

My worries away

As an old native-born

Californian would say

It's a most

Unu...

Jo-Jo, that is not the place

for the cymbal crash.

Carol, what does she have to

hang on to a handkerchief for?

- You'd think she had hay fever.

- Don't be rude.

But this is supposed to be

a swing number.

- As I was saying...

- Judy, don't pay any attention to her.

Last week you were Kathryn Grayson.

This week you're Hildegard.

Couldn't you be just

plain Judy Foster for tonight?

If you don't like the way I sing, Oogie,

you can use my understudy, Mitzi.

All right, Judy, have it your own way.

You always do, anyway.

Here, you may as well take this too.

After all, Oogie, someone has to

supervise us or we'd be here all night.

I gotta call Mother.

I'll be back in a minute.

Hurry back, Judy.

The things a man has to put up with.

Yes, Judy, your dress came.

Yes, it's lovely, Judy.

Nightingale is pressing it now.

Well, you better hurry home.

It's almost time for dinner.

All right, dear.

- Feeling better, Melvin?
