My Little Margie: A Proposal for Papa is amusingly contrived episode
Mr. Honeywell makes Vern hire Muriel, the daughter of a potential client, to be his secretary. She turns out to not be good at her job but Vern can't fire her. To make matters worse, she's attracted to Vern and wants to marry him! Margie tries to get Muriel off her father's back by first having her dad treat Margie really badly but Muriel thinks Margie gets whatever she deserves! She then tries to get boyfriend Freddie to act a bit like Vern except more athletic while her father acts a little sick but Muriel now wants to take care of Vern even more! Finally, Margie tries to make Muriel think about the age difference between her and Vern by dating Muriel's father who turns out to have a crush on Margie himself and proposes a double wedding! All seems lost until Margie fixes it so she turns out to be allergic to Muriel's father and Muriel herself seems to be allergic to Margie! The end. The plot I just mentioned is very silly and loses steam in the end but is often amusing in the first act so I'd recommended it to anyone who don't mind contrived sitcoms from the '50s.
