Guy Marks ...
Freddy White


Rob and Buddy are reminiscing about Freddy White, a deadbeat comedian who they have both provided material to but who never paid them and now tries to avoid them at almost all cost unless he can get something else out of them for free. Rob ran into Freddy when he was out to dinner with Laura and Sally the previous evening. Rob and Buddy are surprised to learn that Sally likes Freddy, who she now considers her primary guy who she hopes someday to marry. Rob knows that Freddy is only romancing Sally to get her to write him some new material for free, which Freddy admits to him in private. Freddy even intends on going as far as marrying Sally to have a permanent and exclusive writer. Rob and Laura fear that if they try to break the two up, Sally will only resent them for doing so. Sally beats them to the punch by announcing that she and Freddy are getting married and that she knows all about Freddy's past and his admission to Rob. She vows to her friends that she knows what she's doing ... Written by Huggo
