Dangerous When Wet

Synopsis: The health conscious, dairy-farming Higgins family begin each day with an invigorating swim. One day, traveling health-tonic salesman, Windy Weebe, comes to town and suggests they could swim the English Channel. Sponsored by "Liquapep" and coached by Windy, the family arrive in Europe. There it is decided that daughter Katie is the only one strong enough to enter the contest. But while she should be focused on the difficult and risky task ahead, Katie is pursed by dashing Frenchman, André Lanet... This comedic musical is well remembered for the scene when Katie dreams she is swimming with cartoon characters Tom & Jerry!

I got out of bed on the right side

On the bright side

On the light side

I got out of bed on the right side

And I'm havin' a wonderful day

I sang a duet with the rooster

I'm a booster

Of the rooster

But he doesn't crow like he useter

Couldn't handle my yodel-ee-ay

Who cares if the sun ain't shinin'?

The eggs are beamin' sunny-side up

And as for a silver linin'

The coffee's steamin' money-side up

When day rolls around to the night side

If I still seem on the bright side

I don't wanna sound on the trite side

But I figure it happened this way

I got out of bed on the right side

And I'm havin' a wonderful day

One, two, three, four.

Two, two, three, four.

Three, two, three, four.

Four, two, three, four.

One, two, three, four.

Two, two, three, four.

Three, two, three, four.

Four, two, three, four.

One, two, three, four.

Two, two, three, four.

Three, two, three, four.

Four, two, three, go.

What's so interesting?

Clover and alfalfa diets

as opposed to non-legumes.

I'm not so sure I agree, though.

Katy, you can't learn dairy farming

out of books.

Anyway, what about doing your 10 laps?

Pa, do I have to?

Yesterday, you didn't swim a stroke,

nor the day before. You're getting unglued.

You're getting soft.

Remember the family motto.

"Take care of the body."

- Right.

- The brain will take care of itself.

I never said that.

I'm not getting soft, Pa.

Good girl. Katy.

Oh, all right.

Breakfast in 15 minutes.

I don't wanna sound on the trite side

But I figure it happened this way

I got out of bed on the right side

And I'm havin' a wonderful day

Hey, look out.

Hey, come on, bossy, mush.

Get out.

Come on, hay-burner,

let's get this show on the road here.

Come on, don't just stand there, move.

Ask her to move

like a gentleman.

That's no gentleman, it's a cow.

Joke over.

Come on, come on. Hurry up. This way.

- Farmer's daughter?

- Hey, come here.

And the traveling salesman.

Second joke over.

Come on, that's the way.

- That's pretty cute.

- Thank you.

- You too.

- And stay out of the road, girls.

Say, honey, we're gonna be in town

this afternoon. Maybe I'll be seeing you.

- I wouldn't count on it.

- Why? You gonna milk the cows?

No, they're very clever,

they milk themselves.

Hey, the farm girl's right with it.

- Yes, sirree.

- Look, why don't you change your mind?

We got a great little show whipped up,

courtesy of that boon to mankind, Liquapep.

Here, let me show you.

If you're weak, puny or undeveloped,

you take two tablespoons full...

Well, I guess you don't need this.

Come on to the show

anyway, will you?

We could have a nice chop suey dinner

afterward. What do you say?

- Well, I'll tell you what.

- Yeah?

There's a drugstore on the corner

of Main Street and Elm.

And you wait outside. And wear a white

carnation in your lapel so I'll know you.

Now, don't go away.

However, if I'm not there by Thursday,

you'll know something happened, huh?

Boy, she is with it.

- Junior, pass the blackstrap.

- Wheat germ, please.

- Hey, look, a double yolk.

- Find out who laid it.

We'll segregate her and study her diet.

Probably Becky.

She always puts her heart in her work.

Ma, can I have some more yogurt?

Now, that's what our cows need.

- Yogurt?

- No, an imported Jersey sire.

- Look, isn't he beautiful?

- You know what an imported sire costs?

I know what Sir John of Ralwyn costs.

He's worth every penny of it.

If we bred our girls with a prize package

like Sir John...

...we'd have the richest milk

in the country.

Where do you expect to get the money?

Well, I haven't worked that out yet.
