Phyllis, a girl in her 20s, is just returning from her summer vacation, during which she has fallen in love with a struggling young musician. On the bus trip home, Phyllis is telling her girlfriend of the difficulty she is going to have in breaking this news to her parents. Phyllis' parents and her aunt and uncle have made Phyllis the center of their lives. In their over-concern for her, they have naturally assumed she would marry George, the boy next door, whom she has known all her life. These four and George too, are on hand to welcome Phyllis home. Soon after their initial greeting, Phyllis tells them she intends to marry the young musician. They are shocked at the news and refuse to believe there can be anything to it. Written by
