MONEY AND GOOD LOOKS

George and Lynne are at a wedding. As the bride and groom leave the church, Lynne remarks that those two have it all. George asks if she means money and good looks. Lynne replies that they say she certainly had several good looks at his money before marrying him.

It's wedding season and this time George and Lynne have actually been invited rather than hearing about it from other people. They must have caught wind that their behaviour and gossiping is frowned upon in the community. They have made an special effort to tone it down in recent weeks in order to secure an invite to this, the most talked about wedding of the year.

They are trying very hard. George has hired a Morning suit and Lynne is wearing a very conservative dress, for her. Unfortunately Lynne had to go and spoil it. She couldn't keep her big mouth shut. All the guests know that the bride is marrying the groom for his money and insisted on a pre-nuptial agreement but no one had to say it. The problem is that everyone knew except for the woman in the green hat. She will now tell someone else that the blonde woman and thinning gentleman have been spreading slanderous accusations. This results in George and Lynne actually being asked to leave the reception. George calms down the father of the bride but his reputation has been tarnished this time.

  1. The bride certainly seems to age very quickly between frames 1 and 2.
