INT. HOME OFFICE - DAY
A MIDDLE-AGED MAN is on the telephone gleaning a sheet of paper.
Hold on just a second.
He gathers up another sheet of paper.
I'll call you back.
His WIFE rushes in.
What is it? What's wrong, Albie?
It's the bill for the flowers.
Five thousand dollars? And this?
That's it! One more week of this and we'll be
in the poor house!
Albie collects the invoices, rises, then paces.
I can understand a ten thousand dollar wedding
gown. But a coach? Why can't she have a limousine
like every other bride? Who do I look like? Walt Disney?
A young WOMAN rushes into the office CRYING.
There you are, mother.
What is it, Christine?
He wants to elope. Can you believe it?
Mary glares at him as she guides Christine to a chair.
Let me remind you, young lady, that your mother and
I eloped. Look how happily married we are.
You did, didn't you? It is romantic, isn't it?
ROB rushes in.
Christine, listen to me.
I have nothing to say. If you knew better, I
never want to see you again.
Albie skulks out of the office, then rushes through the house into the yard.
EXT. YARD - DAY
As he approaches the GARDENER,
Grab the ladder and place it at THAT window.
Then bring the car around.
INT. OFFICE - DAY
Albie returns to find Rob kneeling before Christine.
I'll do whatever it takes to make you happy.
Albie notices the ladder swaying to and fro at the window.
Look. A ladder.
What's it doing there?
Albie grins coyly as he walks seductively towards his wife.
Don't you remember?
How about we renew our vows.
Don't be silly, Albie.
Entranced, Christine watches on as Albie extends his arm, Mary wrapping hers around it. She holds Rob's hands.
If it was good enough for my parents, it's
good enough for me.
Right now. The four of us.
LAUGHING, they crawl through the window and step carefully onto the ladder.
From the garden,
Where are the suitcases?
The four step up the ladder and crawl back into the office. All rush out but Albie who sits at his desk, reflecting. Upon their return,
I packed for you, dear.
Rob, a happy wife is a happy life.
(steps to Christine)
My angel, I won't put a price on your
happiness. You have your wedding
with all the bells and whistles. You'll
make me the proudest father in the world.
(hugs and kisses Albie)
Daddy, you're the best!
FADE TO BLACK
