Taking them six months to save enough money, the kids have purchased a silver platter for their parent's wedding anniversary. Wanting the gift to be even more special, Jan, without telling her siblings, gets the platter engraved. However, she misinterprets the cost of the engraving which is not 85¢ as she believes, but rather 85¢ per letter for a grand total of $56, money which she and her siblings don't have. So they have to figure out a way to raise the money within the week. After the kids exhaust other options such as selling personal items and even trying to take out a loan from a bank, Jan has an idea that could net them $100: perform on the Pete Sterne Amateur Hour, the first prize being that $100. But they have to pass the audition and win the contest, neither of which are guarantees, and all without their parents or Alice finding out what they're up to. Written by
Did You Know?
Alfred Bailey's information that the price was $56.23, over-all total, was eighty-five (85) cents per letter and there was sixty-three (63) letters, altogether. Multiply, 85 times 63 cents equals $53.55. Then, add $2.68, back in 1972, the tax rate was 5 per cent exactly. Add $53.55 and $2.68, they total $56.23 exactly. Jan read it out verbally as 'Mom and Dad, Happy Anniversary, All Our Love, Greg, Marcia, Peter, Jan, Bobby, and Cindy.' (the 3 letter word 'and' was not between Bobby's and Cindy's names. Jan said 'and' because she was reading the last two names of Bobby and Cindy, just for proper grammar.) See more
When the kids are rehearsing in the garage, they are counting "one, two, three, kick". However, they are kicking on three, not on the word kick. Or perhaps the word kick, was probably meant by the writer, that all six were meant to be turned around, before kick was said & create their musical rhythms. See more
Jan, how could you be so stupid?
