Back at the Building and Loan, Violet needs money, probably for a back-alley abortion, and asks George for a loan. With what collateral, her ass? She kisses him and leaves lipstick stains on his face. Skank! Or skunk! That hat she’s wearing sure looks like one.
Here’s your money, just don’t tell my wife about this.
Uncle Billy tells George what happened and George freaks out. He walks through the streets and back to the bank with Uncle Billy and realizes they are screwed but good. Back at Uncle Billy’s home office, George freaks out, grabs Uncle Billy and screams, “Where’s that money you stupid old fool!” He says it means scandal and jail and sex with men. “One of us is going to jail and it won’t be me!” Dramatic much?
The next knot you tie should be around your neck!
George shows up at home with no overcoat, hat or gloves looking like a man who is about to blow his head off, but Mary is just concerned about her Merry Christmas wreath. She continues to decorate the tree as George grabs one of his many kids and hugs and kisses him like he’s a man on death row. Mary turns and sees that George is coo-coo for cocoa puffs.
His non-verbals aren’t doing him any favors.
Mary tells George that their daughter Zuzu (please tell me that’s a nickname) has a cold because she brought a flower home inside her coat and didn’t button it up because she didn’t want to crush it. Or, she got the cold from the other snot-nosed, germy kids at school. George heads upstairs to see Zuzu and it’s odd that they put all the kids’ beds in one room when they have an old mansion with like 50 rooms.
Petals have fallen off Zuzu’s rose and she asks George to put it back together. He puts the petals in a pocket in his pants and tells her to go to sleep. He puts his hand over her face to check her temperature but it looks like he’s trying to suffocate her.
Uh, dad? Cyclops doesn’t really work for me.
The phone rings and it’s Zuzu’s teacher. George gets on the phone and tears her a new one for sending his kid home “half naked.” Dude, she’s not Potter, calm down. Then a man’s voice comes over the phone and it’s the teacher’s husband. He and George get into it – it really is a banner day for the Baileys!
I can’t believe teachers get a six-figure salary
and send kids home half naked! You make what? HAHAHAHA,
okay, nevermind, I’m just glad you’re not naked!
