Voice is back! He tells Clarence that clearly George never leaves Bedford Falls. Mary has a baby boy, then a girl, and worked every day to make the old house into a home like genetics says she must. Every night George came back from the office looking pretty suicidal waaay before that crucial night.
Yeah, this looks like my weekends too. The difference?
I don’t have four kids messing it up!
Then came war! Yay! That always cheers people up! Ma Bailey and Mary’s mother sewed for the Red Cross. Mary had two more babies, which I guess does help the war effort not at all, but she ran the USO. Sam Wainwright made a fortune with plastic hoods for planes and produced the new show Hee Haw while Potter decided who went off to war – don’t ask, don’t tell boys!
Yes, these muskets will be perfect
for our soldiers in Afghanistan!
Harry was a Navy flier and shot down 15 planes including two that were about to crash into a transport carrying 50 soldiers, saving all of them. George was 4-F because of his ear so he helped around town as the air raid warden and recycling king.
Now we get to the “crucial day.” The newspaper shows a story about Harry getting the Congressional Medal of Honor and he’s coming home to celebrate. George comes into the Building and Loan and takes a call from Harry but has to get off the phone because the bank examiner is there to, you know, examine the bank on Christmas Eve.
Things come so easily for Harry. Well, he did have to go to war.
Good thing, too! Uncle Billy has been put in charge of depositing $8,000 at Potter’s bank which makes total sense since he can’t even remember to put on socks. Potter walks in and Uncle Billy shows him the Harry Bailey story in the paper, rubbing it in that a Bailey did something good. Watch out, Uncle Billy, karma’s a bitch!
In your face, bitch! For now, at least.
Uncle Billy slams the paper closed and hands it back to Potter…with the envelope of money in it. He goes to make the deposit and the teller is like mofo, did you forget the money you wanted to deposit? Uncle Billy looks through all of his pockets and on the floor as we see Potter open his paper and find the money. That rat bastard looks out his office door to see Uncle Billy freaking out and doesn’t say a word. Hell will feel a lot warmer than this Bedford Falls winter!
Yep, that’s how you’re going to look when they convict you.
