Storyline

Yetta's wedding is fast approaching. The family finally gets to meet her betrothed, Sammy. It's dislike at first sight for Sylvia - is it because Sammy's black? Sylvia changes her tune when Sammy announces that his nephew is Bryant Gumbel. Sammy thinks that Bryant may be able to help Fran out. Fran has decided to channel her energies away from thoughts of marriage to a career, the career that she's chosen being TV weather girl. Maxwell thinks her idea is preposterous, but deep down there is a slight fear that she may succeed and leave him forever. Sammy does arrange for at least a meeting between Fran and Bryant. At the TV station, Fran finds out that there is no weather segment on the show, but that they are looking for an editorial commentator for which she auditions. Fran does not get the job, and thus Maxwell's rush to get down to the TV station to implement his ploy to get Fran back is all for not. Written by Huggo
