Butch plays the note again.

“Here’s comes the bri…,” the children start singing.

“That’s fine,” says Butch.

The doorbell rings. It’s the Stephenson family.

“Mrs. Cameron?” says Millie.

“Yes. Mrs. Stephenson?” says Mrs. Cameron.

“Yes,” answers Millie.

“Come right in, won’t you?” says Mrs. Cameron

“My daughter,” says Millie, introducing Peggy.

“How do you do?” says Mrs. Cameron.

“How do you do, Mrs. Cameron?” says Al.

“How do you do?” says Mrs. Cameron. Al hands Mrs. Cameron a large gift-wrapped box.

“There you go,” says Al.

“Oh my – you shouldn’t have,” says Mrs. Cameron.

“My daughter,” says Millie to Mr. Cameron.

“Miss Stephenson,” says Mr. Cameron.

“Hello,” says Peggy.

“Hello, Mr. Cameron,” says Al.

“Meet Homer’s folks,” says Mr. Cameron. “Mr. and Mrs. Stephenson. Miss Stephenson.”

“How do you do?” says Al to Mrs. Parrish.

“How do you do?” says Al to Mr. Parrish.

“Hello, Al!” says Butch.

“Hello, Butch!” says Al.

“It’s good you’re here!” says Butch.

“Mr. Stephenson,” says Mr. Cameron, “Could I interest you in a little punch?”

“How do you do, Mrs. Stephenson?” says Butch to Millie.

Peggy glances around the room, not seeing Fred, who is out on the porch.

“Steady, boy!” laughs Fred, as he tries to light Homer’s shaky cigarette.

“I heard you were leaving town,” says Homer. “I was afraid you wouldn’t stand up for me!”

“I’ll stand up for you, kid,” begins Fred.
